Cottington FAQ

What is Cottington Woods?

    Cottington Woods is a LARP set in the Written World, a world of fairy tales, tall tales, campfire tales, legends and lore. It is intended to be dark yet heroic, where we supply the dark, and our players will provide the heroic. Although we stretch the definitions, our player characters are all human and very mortal.

Is the game tongue in cheek?

    Most emphatically not! While it is the case that sometimes embarrassing things may transpire, or a curse may sometimes make a character look less heroic than he might like, the game is not designed to be humorous. Instead, the game will be somewhat dark and sometimes horrific.

Where will the game be run?

    With Eagle Pass closing, we plan to return to Camp Frank A Day in East Brookfield, MA.

What is the schedule of events?

    Our current plan is to run a single one shot introductory event, partly to introduce the game and partly to fundraise starting expenses. After that there are fourteen (14) scheduled weekend events, with a tentative schedule of two event the first year and then four events each year for three years. If COVID-19 delays us to 2022, we may extend the campaign to sixteen events, running four events per year for four years.

Do you offer CP exchange?

    At this time we have an official agreement with all Accelerant games and a few other games local to New England, included but not limited to: Madrigal 3, Aralis 3, Coventry, Ebonrock, Elsewhere, Fealty, Future Imperfect, Hellcat Jive, Invictus, Isles, Keystone, LIONE, Madrigal: Oathbound, NERO: Ravenholt, Port Katherine, and Shadowvale. We will be approaching other games going forward. If there is an Accelerant game or other LARP you’d like to make sure we approach, let us know.
