About Lost Colonies

A brief overview

Lost Colonies is a fantasy larp focused on the exploration and discovery of a new fictional land. It is important to note that we are NOT an alternate history larp or reenactment and we are NOT exploring the history of Colonization of America or of other lands. Knowledge of real world history is not required to enjoy our events and our world. For more on this topic please visit and read our Statement on Colonialism Our world is a new fictional world that invites you to portray characters with an industrious mindset from all walks of life and with any number of different costuming styles from the 1600's and earlier from all over the world.

Very Important Information

The Lost Colonies Larp is NOT an alternate history larp. We do not in any way condone or glorify the acts of genocide and slavery that have accompanied historical colonizations of various places on Earth. The story we intend to tell celebrates the spirit of adventure, exploration, and discovery, and takes place in a strictly fictional setting. Stories of genocide or maltreatment of native populations will never be presented as part of the story and they are expressly prohibited as choices available to the players to make.

Lost Colonies Original Music

The sounds of the Lost Colonies

On this page you will find some original music composed by Chris Kackley from Kindred Crow. Please check them out as they are amazing, but also support them as they will be producing more music specifically for the Lost Colonies Larp. I hope you enjoy these and can use them to get a feel of the world.
