The way it was

Timeline of the collective

The group of people who travel together at the start of the larp are referred to as the collective. In this post we’ll give you a brief timeline of what’s happened since the collapse. People have joined the collective at different times, and your final character will list when that …

We’ve seen and received some questions about the site and player safety, and we wanted to talk a little about that in this post. Certainly, Re:Boot is a larp where players will likely experience fatigue, cold and hunger, but that doesn’t mean you’ll be abandoned and neglected. We have tried …
