About us

« Battle Ship » is an international collaboration project on a scale unseen before now.

Two of the most successful living experience event teams in the world have come together to create a historically inspired interactive vacation.

The Imagine Nation Collective (from the US) and Dziobak Larp Studios (from Europe) have created thousand person post-apocalyptic settlements, wizarding schools in real castles in Poland, interactive story events in Abu Dhabi, and have dozens of publications on interactive environments, design theories, and event building.

Our other events

Since 2008, the Dystopia Rising LARP Network has had a major event in the fall. Formerly known as "DeathCon", now these events are known as "Downfall" and have grown to be their own massive yearly project.

Starting with a humble 204 people in 2008, Downfall has grown to amazing numbers. In 2016 over 1000 attendees spent 4 days in the Dystopia Rising universe at one massive event.

These events are hosted by the The Imagine Nation Collective, written and designed by the original creators of the Dystopia Rising universe. These events include massive over-the-top scenarios that combine huge budget sets, massive prop budgets, live performances, hundreds on NPCs, and months of writing and plot design. For scale, in 2016 the Imagine Nation Collective purchased a Vietnam era deuce and a half truck for combat scenarios.

College of Wizardry is a four-day Wizard School larp event, where you can act out your dreams of being a student witch or wizard at a beautiful fairytale castle in Poland.

It is made by Dziobak Larp Studios, an international larp organising collective, with the assistance of a huge group of people and so far over the course of over 2 years there were 10 editions with over 120 players each!

Fairweather Manor is an international larp, with the 135 participants coming from many different countries. The larp is inspired by the TV series Downton Abbey, Upstairs/Downstairs, Edwardian England and the Great War (World War One) and takes place at a real castle in Poland.

Convention of Thorns is a larp (live action role play) event, held at the Polish castle of Zamek Ksiaz. During the event, participants take on the roles of deceitful and decadent vampires at the end of the 15th century. The larp takes place in White Wolf's World of Darkness setting and is an official White Wolf event, put together by the Rollespilsfabrikken/Liveform team in cooperation with White Wolf.
