“The dust blows across the barren earth of a once fertile land. Toxic gases, bottomless pits, disease, and dangerous relics of ages past. Few can survive in the harsh place the world has become. Yet among the wreckage left behind from the Great War, mankind, or a fragment of them, still lives…”
What is the Wasteland?
The Wasteland is an annual, 8 hour, Post Apocalypse themed LARP game inspired by works such as Mad Max, Fallout, and The Book of Eli. Players can choose to play as 1 of 3 different people groups or roam the waste as a Marauder. The people groups must struggle to survive against the threat of disease, hunger, and most dangerous of all; the other peoples. The goal of the game is to earn renown for your team by completing various task including gathering resources, raiding other cities, and delivering tributes. At the end of the game the team with the most renown will be declared the winner.

What Are The Costs
One of the benefits of LARPing is that one can spend as much or as little as they wish on the hobby. Good costumes can be made for relatively cheap out of thrift store items and safe weapons can be simply constructed at low costs. There are also a vast number of high quality weapons, armor, and costuming that can be purchased online.
Unlike many LARP hobby groups the Frontier has a game fee which allows us to pay our staff for their countless hours of work. In return we strive to provide a much higher quality game with grander facilities.
Adult Game Fee: $40 (includes 1 meal)
Child Game Fee (ages 12-15): $30 (requires chaperon)(includes 1 meal)
**Early bird tickets will be offered at a reduced rate, sales dates TBA
