This week we had a chance to speak with Aaron Vanek the production head of Wave One and ask him to tell us about the SS Lane Victory location.
We are renting the entirety of the SS Lane Victory. Some areas of the ship will not always be accessible to characters due to in-game reasons (e.g., the outside deck while in outer space) or players for out-of- game reasons (e.g., a staff control room or storage), but nearly all of it will be part of the event, including the bridge, engine room, chart room, radio room, mess halls, cargo holds, crew quarters, armaments (guns), and more. We intend to dress everything with appropriate props and set pieces to turn this working ocean going vessel into a make-believe space-faring starship.
Although your characters may not be able to see everything aboard the Selket, we allow and encourage the players to visit all parts of the ship during the narrative breaks.
In addition to the Lane Victory, we are reserving event space at the nearby Doubletree by Hilton Hotel for check in, pre-larp workshops, debriefing, and part of the larp itself. We encourage participants to stay here, as we have a discounted room rate.
We are scouting other amazing location possibilities for the larp, and will update you if we add another.
