Thaumetopoea Mythae

Thaumetopoea Mythae

By H.K.

In this larp, players take on the roles of cultists to one of the “gods” from the Lovecraft Mythos. They go through an ascension process to be imbued with more power than a human can hold and must therefore prepare their body and mind for significant changes. 

You will play a character grappling with themes related to fitting in vs. standing out, being othered due to fear of what they might become capable of, and having to decide how far they will go and how much they will sacrifice in the service of their “god”. 

At the core of the larp are the characters’ personal stories as well as physical exercises and guided meditations used to feel and foster the monstrous grotesque inside us.  

NB. You will need to bring a pair of headphones.
