MACE 2019 Featured: Might and Right – World of Darkness Live Action Role Play

A Vampire: The Dark Ages LARP Presented by Charlotte UT.

“If you must break the law, do it to seize power: in all other cases observe it.” -Caesar

This is the Long Night. These are the Dark Nights. The night is yours to rule! Kingdoms rise and fall. The Cross and Crescent war for the souls of the humanity, even as those who follow the older ways are pushed to the fringes of the world. Throughout this tumultuous time, the Children of Caine move their pawns across a board spanning empires and myriad cultures. Secure in their unholy might, Vampiric Kings and Princes hold court and decide the fates of Kindred and Kine alike. The time of the Faith and Fire is not yet upon the world, and the Vampires reign supreme. Power belongs to those with the will to wield it, and all others must follow or be left behind. But beware of others with power and ambition. The night is Dark indeed…

This is a Vampire the Dark Ages LARP. We will be using the By Night Studios Vampire the Masquerade rules, with some minor modifications due to setting. All Characters are pre-generated. Please contact the STs at  for more information or to request a specific type of character.

Please see this games on OGRe. You must be registered for MACE 2019 to participate.

MACE 2019 Featured Event: Flea Market & Swap Meet

MACE 2019 will host another Flea Market & Swap Meet.  This is a very casual aspect of our convention and we leave a lot up to you and your judgement.

Sell or Trade your old gaming stuff. MACE is providing a chance for you not sell your old games and accessories like a yard sale. This is not for vendors to sell current games, or game stores to sell their old stock.  This is for regular folks to sell their old out-of-print gaming stuff. You set up your own schedule. We will just set up tables. All sales are final. No retail sales allowed here. Negotiating and bargaining are encouraged.

We are going to set up tables in the hallway outside the elevators. 2 or 3 depending on space. We are going to try and keep it as simple as possible. We did not want to make it any more complicated than it needs to be. Basically these tables are available for you to sell any old, used and/or out of print games and fandom merchandise. This is not a place for new or unopened product or a place for vendors. You can set your own schedule for when you want to sell. If there are not tables available, try again some other time. I would not recommend waiting to the last day because (1) people will have less money by then, (2) I think a lot of people are going to wait last minute.

Contact us if you have any questions.
