There are three types of Heroquest events as follows:

Larp Adventure Weekends

larp adventure

This is our most popular type of larping event, and is ideally suited to all players; existing, old or new. We recommend this as the event you should first attend if you have never been to Heroquest Larp before.

An adventure weekend begins on a Friday evening, commencing at approximately 9 pm, and finishes at approximately 1 pm on the Sunday. This event is aimed at 30 to 50 players.

Players can anticipate:

  • an overall plot for the weekend for the entire group to complete
  • splitting into smaller adventuring parties for three to four hours at a time
  • Guild and Tower business, including swearing to the King, character promotions, and further character development
  • marketplace trading, with the opportunity to purchase and trade items

After the event, each player receives 40 points.

Special Larp Events

larp eventThe "Special" is a live action role playing event more suited to those who like to be involved in the adventure 100% from start to finish.

The dungeon begins on a Thursday evening, commencing at approximately 9 pm, and runs continuously, finishing at approximately 1 pm on the Sunday with a total duration of around 64 hours.

This fantasy event is aimed at 12 to 16 players and is the shortest event we run for one party of live roleplaying adventurers. There will be something for everyone on this type of event.

The aim will be to complete a self-contained mission given to you by the Towers, that also ties into the overall Heroquest Larp Campaign plot. There will be something for everyone on this type of event.

70 points will be awarded to each player at the completion of the weekend. There is a lot more action on these events and the fear factor is greatly increased!


undead retinueThis is perhaps the most professional and specialist type of larping event available anywhere in the world, but be warned: this style of larp event is not for the fainthearted!

A Heroquest lasts approximately 100 hours, spanning over 6 days. The start and finish times will vary but normally commence late evening on Tuesday night and finish Sunday morning. The actual lrp game ends on the Saturday evening, followed by an out of character meal and drinks. This allows everyone the opportunity to sleep overnight (out of character) before packing up and driving home on the Sunday.

This event is a one party adventure and will contain a maximum 16 players.

This type of event is the pinnacle of a character's career and will be the culmination of one or more threads of existing campaign plot. You should expect to be at your very best for this event and be challenged at every turn; on successful completion, your character may well earn great renown and be thought of as Hero of the Kern Valley.

Each player will be awarded 100 points at the completion of the event and will also be given a Heroquest ability prior to the start of the event.

Note that while all Heroquest larp events run continuously in game, from start to end, you are not expected to stay up on guard all night. Experience has told us that the most hardened live role player needs at least six hours sleep particularly when they are active mentally and physically for multiple eighteen hour days.
