Special Events

Dungeons Are Forever

Right Lamias and Gentlefiends, I’m sorry to announce via divination that we will be having a small adventurer problem; and by small I mean several thousand new recruits being pumped into our dungeon until they’re all dead, or we’re all dead (which thinking about it might be their actual plan)…

Anyhow your orders minions are simple – reset the traps, pick up any shinies and kill as many of this insufferable goon legion of humans before you die. Don’t forget, we have reinforcements in this dungeon, so feel free to die in the line of duty.

Remember, your Dungeon Masters need you (possibly to die).

An open table RPG of monsters defending their dungeon against endless waves of adventures.

LARP 101 Panel

Saturday 12:00

  • What even is a Live Action Roleplaying Game?
  • What does a LARP look like?
  • Have I already played a LARP?
  • How do I run one? Is it like running a regular RPG?

All of these questions and more will be addressed at this talk, as we discuss what LARPs look like in theory and practice!

The Eye of the Champion

Saturday 14:00 – 17:00

Word has it that he is seen on the moors once again, Súil Dubh the Wanderer. Once he was mortal like you or I, but at the Battle of Hurdleford he became something more. Now he seeks another worthy to take up his blade and fight for the glory of the gods.

Leprecon calls valiant warriors together in a tournament to name a champion worthy of an ancient legacy! There are two ways to play, as a spectator or as a fighter.

Fighters will take pre-generated characters using the LARP system used in Five Oaths and participate in a bracketed elimination tourney until one fighter reigns supreme. Spectators will take on the roles of distinguished guests: merchants, warlords, or sinister schemers. All of them have an interest in making sure the next fighter to hold the blade of Súil Dubh owes them for their greatness, and will be able to aid their favoured fighter.

There will be a prize for the best fighter and the best spectator. Those taking part as combatants will require insurance from Country Sports Ireland. If you already possess insurance as a player of the Five Oaths system, that is relevant here. Otherwise, you can purchase two-day cover from

Be sure to sign up before the event to participate! And don’t forget to secure insurance if you’re a combatant – shouldn’t take too long.


Saturday – Sunday

Alpha Strike As the internecine fighting dies down, Prince Hjalmer Miraborg decides the best way to keep the Dominion together is to engage in a Short, Victorious War with the Draconis Combine, sending a thrust towards Luthien.

Battletech Ireland returns to Leprecon!
