Questions and Answers

Q. Do I have to be familiar with Mutant to participate?
A. No. We build on the universe of Mutant, but you don’t need any pre-existing knowledge of that particular universe to be a part of the Last Ark. We’ll make sure you get all the information you need to be able to play.
Q. Do I have to be there for every event?
A. No. Each event can be experienced on its own. Think of the events like different short stories taking place sequentially in the same universe, with some reoccurring characters. Or like Donald Duck cartoons, if Donald was the descendent of a long line of slowly mutating-humans and Duckburg a last well-guarded bastion in a deserted civilization.
Q. What do you mean by “doing things for real”?
A. We mean that if your mutant character spews green foam, so should you. We want to feel the island on our bodies, and we like when things look and feel real or close-to-real. So, for the most part, we just do what we want our characters to do and they see what we see. Some representation techniques will come into play, though. We’ll tell you more about those closer to the events.
Q. What's the Last Ark's policy on drinking? A. We don't really have one. We trust you to take responsibility for yourselves and each other and to use your own best judgment.
Q. I want to write my own character or bring a pre-existing one. Can I get some help making sure it fits into the larp?
A. Yes! We'll be making a character template you can use if you're starting from scratch, and you're always welcome to write us with questions. You'll be able to make your own relations with other players when we get a bit closer to the larps. Watch this space for updates.
