Shattered Antiquities is the branch of the Modern Enigma Society covering the greater Boston area. The MES is a national parlor LARP group specializing in games set in White Wolf’s World of Darkness. Our games meet once a month and are adults only (18+). We welcome all players to our games are are committed to creating a fun experience for everyone, of all genders and identities, including LGBTQI+ and BIPOC.
Play vampires scrabbling for power in Vampire The Masquerade or Werewolves trying to save the world in Werewolf the Apocalypse , and down-on-their-luck changelings just trying to catch a break in Changeling the Lost.
Each of these “venues” is stand-alone. That is, there’s no interaction between characters in the Vampire game and characters in the Werewolf game. But each venue is part of a nationally connected campaign, with a vast living world of PCs and NPCs all over the country.
Ours is an ongoing campaign in real time. That means that each game happens once a month, and our characters experience one month of time passing between each game session. It’s not necessary to attend every game session, and for those who want to travel, there are games you can visit in Massachusetts, Connecticut, New York City, New Jersey – and even further afield. The MES also has several games which run online via Discord. Our games are set in a single shared continuity and you’ll be able to play the same character at any game you visit.
New players are always welcome at our games. No experience is required, and our veteran players are happy to teach the rules and provide guidance. If you want to see what our games are like, feel free to come and just observe a session or two, or pick up and play a pre-generated character. But if you are ready to jump right in the deep end with your own character, our staff will help you get ready to play and you can learn the system as you go.
If you have your eye on a particular venue, the Storyteller for that game is the best person to talk to.
If you don’t know where to start, then simply e-mail the Domain Coordinator Wendy or Interim Domain Storyteller Michael. These two officers are in charge of the Shattered Antiquities Domain as a whole. Wendy is in charge of out of character logistics, and Michael supports all three Storytellers and handles the paperwork.
