About Lost Colonies

A brief overview

Lost Colonies is an exploration and discovery larp. We host a variety of styles of events but the two main types are full weekend events and one day events. The full weekend events are held in campgrounds with cabins to camp in, meals served all weekend (light meals mostly but one feast Saturday night) and we have content for a wide array of interests including puzzles, tracking, combat (using lightest touch and nerf guns), research, and some politics.

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.
