About Our Events
Our events typically take place over multiple days and involve camping in tents, with the exception of occasional indoor winter events, completely immersing players in the game world as much as possible for the entirety of the event. Games are held on private land near the small town of Curran, ON. And if our game isn't in your area, check out this post to see if there's another Underworld guild near you!

Frequently Asked Questions
Q: What does _________ mean?
A: Check out our handy Glossary for many useful definitions.
Q: What's the event cost?
A: Your first event at Underworld is free! Afterwards, weekend events tend to be $80 as long as you've pre-registered and pre-paid.
Q: What kind of lodging does the site have?
A: The site we play on does not include any lodging. Players are expected to bring their own camping equipment (there are no restrictions when it comes to using modern camping equipment) and will be camping all weekend. Check out the Getting Started page for more information about what to bring!
Q: How immersive are players expected to be?
A: Players are expected to be in character from game start until game end (roughly Friday 10pm to Sunday 2pm) with the exception of some circumstances such as emergencies and medical holds.
During this in-character time we highly discourage any modern or real world references. Underworld is a very story-driven larp and immersion is crucial to maintaining the game's tone and energy.
While the stereotypical old english, shakespearean speech, and accents are welcome, they are not required. In fact, most players don't use them.
Q: How are substances such as alcohol or drugs handled?
A: All alcohol and recreational drugs are prohibited during Mournfall events.
Some events may be listed as "Wet" events where alcoholic beverages can be purchased from the event venue. These are typically held indoors during the winter. Players who partake will not be allowed to engage in any combat activity for the remainder of the event.
Q: What kind of weapons or armour can I use?
A: Our LARP allows players to use foam, latex and boffer weapons. To ensure player safety, Underworld has a fairly strict set of rules concerning weapons and armour. You can read about them in the Weapons and Armour Guide.
All weapons and armour should be inspected by an Armour Marshall at logistics every 3 months. Bows, crossbows, arrows and bolts must be inspected every month.
Q: Do I have to do combat if I don't want to?
A: Not at all. While events tend to include a lot of combat, no one is forced to participate. There is plenty of opportunity for players who prefer not to fight, including opportunities to prevent a violent confrontation altogether. Of course, you're also not exempt from having monsters chase you.
Combat at Underworld is "medium touch". This means weapon swings should be hard enough to be felt but not hard enough to hurt or bruise. If you feel a player is swinging too hard feel free to let them or a Shaper know.
