Chris and Clarissa of Dragons & Drafts, LLC decided to launch their own LARP company in 2020 during the Covid Pandemic. They traveled across the US during this time and started using the world as inspiration in the story they began drafting. Stopping in State Parks, KOA Campgrounds, and major points of interest across the US, they developed a unique landscape complimenting a lot of those points in a Medieval Fantasy Campaign Setting. Designing from the ground up, they have made something that could be equal to reading a fantasy novel.
Chris Roberts aka Chris Gold in his youth, has over 15 years of LARPing experience and almost 20 years of Creative Writing & Game Master experience. Weaving and telling tales to well over a couple of thousand individuals through the years at Conventions, LARPs, and other atmospheric settings. Chris, having a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration/Management, took the reigns as Director of Operations to fulfill the need that he observed most LARPs having, which is business direction. Designing the operation structure for the Border Lands and ensuring it is stuck to, allows the unique experience that you can only get from us, here in the Border Lands.
Clarissa stands tall with over 20 years of LARPing experience, with a major focal point being Roleplay-centric designs with game systems like Vampire: The Masquerade and Werewolf: The Apocolypse. This experience allows their design of an immersive, direct experience to be one to go home about. Clarissa has over 25 years of Management Experience in her business portfolio and focuses on ensuring the operational standard is met with the creative direction as your Director of Plot. Being disabled individuals, they also focused on designing a LARP experience that is inclusive and welcoming to all, no matter the life situation that you have to overcome.
One major point that Chris and Clarissa both focus on is designing the world of Border Lands around the concept of Player Development. They have core values behind each and every aspect of the event design, I.E. Team Building, Problem Solving, Deescalation, Puzzle & Hand Dexterity, Etc. These aspects help us not only weave a tale but make sure each time you attend an event with us you will be developing a skill to become a better individual as a whole.
Being nothing but passionate about creating and crafting a LARPing experience, while maintaining a minimum expectation of excellent customer service, and inclusive playspace as well a welcoming atmosphere to all that decide to take a step into the imagination. We focus on ensuring everyone is heard and listening to our players, no matter how big or small the situation is.
We hope that our story is one that drives you to come out and join us in our world of excitement. We cannot wait to see you all venture eventually into our borders. Remember, die loudly out there!
