The Story

The theme is simply classic…

It is rumored that Dracula did not die in 1896. It’s now said that he was awoken and is traversing the Atlantic on his boat, the Demeter, to New York where he will be greeted by a new sect of followers called ‘The Disciples’ seeking to empower Dracula so he can influence the affairs of the New World. This evening these Disciple’s of Dracula will hosting a secret meeting to partake in a ritual to offer Dracula safe passage and empower him for his arrival. However, not all members of the established vampire community are pleased with this news. The leadership of the North American Vampire Authority have secretly infiltrated the Disciples and will be stopping at nothing to sabotage the rituals before it’s too late!

The ‘Game’

Beginners welcome! In keeping with The Game Theatre’s design style the live action element of this event is simple to learn, yet involves thrilling social strategy. Players will be cast as either a Disciple or an Authority and will scheme together to attempt to achieve their goals. This event is a social deduction adventure unlike other deception experiences. You will receive a role card, objectives, and secrets. Additionally, the event follows timed rounds of play, employs a marketplace of secret skills, plus there is some light player vs. player sabotage combat (no physical touching, card play only), which is innovative for social deduction. This is an ideal experience for people who are new to roleplay and interactive social gaming. Join us to test just how good you are at deceiving others!
