MethanCity

My sincere thanks to everyone who helped identify the amazing Czech LARP in yesterday's post.  It was the MethanCity event that ran last Halloween weekend.  The dystopian, post-apocalyptic game's website is here in Czech.  Here's the Google translation in English.

Lynn C-H was kind enough to track down this gallery of shots taken by Lukáš Makovička. 



They had flamethrowers, people.  FLAMETHROWERS!

Alweron found another collection of photos from the event that I believe were taken by photographer David Szeliga. 




The production values on display are jaw-dropping.  The closest thing I've seen to a game like this in the US are some of the larger airsoft scenario games.  They're equally good in terms of having vehicles and well-developed locations, but rarely show the consistent level of costuming on display in MethanCity.

Admittedly, I did not *Scour* their site, but I didn't see too much, if any, Mythos or 'Thulu...

One thing is certain though...if ya wanna look like bad guys, dress in black uni's and try for a WWII German motif. Those guys in black were the 'bad guys and gals', no ?

Perhaps even more impressive than the flamethrower is the freaking anti-tank gun...
