Drama and Dancing

Suggested Price $5.99

“Fine dancing, I believe, like virtue, must be its own reward.”
Jane Austen

This 5 hour LARP recreates a Jane Austen ball full of dancing, romance, rivalry, and familial drama. It's suitable for play at home or at a convention, and contains everything you need to run, including detailed instructions, rules, dances, plots, and characters.

The system is freeform, with a focus on collaboratively structured character work-shopping, and on learning to dance period set-dances together. This .pdf is designed to be easy for those new to larping to both play and run.

In the middle of the Napoleonic Wars, eligible ladies and gentleman gather in the small country town of Candleford Green. They look forward to a night of convivial dancing and gossip at the local assembly hall, but beneath the frivolities these heroes and heroines are all searching for something deeper; love, adventure, status, security, or maybe simply self-discovery. Some of their stories are just beginning, while others are nearing their climactic conclusions.

This larp is for 12 players, 1-2 facilitators, and has optional rules for NPCs.

I played this at Kublacon 2019. Although my poor character ended in true Victorian tragedy, I as a player had an absolute blast!! Highly recommend this, totally replayable! [...]

I played this at KublaCon 2017, and picked up a copy afterwards. I was tentative about it because of Georgian dancing wasn't a draw for me, although I love Jane Austen. The larp was very engaging. It pulls players in to creatively generate secr [...]

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
