Living in the Castle

Living in castle - medieval larp, roleplay,

SLEEPING

If you opt for price option BASIC, you will sleep in the castle. You will sleep in a building but it is more like “camping in the building” than anything else. The “dormitory” is on the second floor of the castle, you will sleep on sleeping pads (Mirelon). It is 3 cm thick and it measures 50 x 200 cm. You must bring all the other equipment like sleeping bags, blankets, pillows and towels with you. We also recommend you to take ear plugs. 

There is no shower at the castle, there is only a flushing toilet and cold running water on the ground floor. 

If you opt for LUXURY or ULTRA LUXURY, you will sleep at one of the local hotels or guesthouses. You will sleep in one-bed or multiple-beds rooms with a toilet and a shower. There will be a minibus service from and to your hotel every morning and evening at a given hour. You can also walk, it is approximately 7 minutes of walking. 

HYGIENE

There are ladies and gentlemen restrooms on the ground floor of the castle. There are two flushing toilets in each of the restrooms and a wash-basin with cold water tap. We will supply toilet paper, soap, disinfectant and paper towels. There is also one mirror in the hall between the restrooms. 

WHAT TO TAKE WITH YOU 

On top of the equipment mentioned above, don’t forget to take sufficient amount of clothing, personal hygiene necessities, anything you need to cover your personal needs, CZK cash, European plug power adapter if needed, chargers, medicine, a sleeping bag and a blanket in case of BASIC package, two pairs of neutral warm shoes. 

TEMPERATURE 

There is nowhere to warm up inside the castle. The only room with heating is dedicated for sleeping. We will try to warm up the castle with gas heaters but it is a huge building and we will not get to the usual room temperature (23°C). The average temperature inside is 12-13°C and the average temperature outside is 5-8°C. 

You will get wool costumes from us but the responsibility for warm clothing under your costumes is up to you! 

You should take several layers of warm clothing with you – functional underwear, two sweaters, a down vest, a scarf, a lower back warming belt, two pairs of warm socks, leather gloves or knitted mitten, players of female characters can also have a tight cap under veils. You can trust us that you will appreciate having these extra layers. Your costumes will allow for these extra layers. If you are cold, first add an extra layer under your costume and if it is still not enough, only then come for an extra layer of costume. 

CATERING

FULL BOARD FROM THURSDAY DINNER TO SUNDAY BREAKFAST IS INCLUDED IN ALL PRICE PACKAGES

We can prepare the following special diets – vegetarian, gluten free, various food allergies and milk intolerance. We cannot cover vegan and other diets. 

The cuisine will be inspired by authentic recipes from the middle ages. The food will be cooked at open fire. You can expect porridge or eggs for breakfast, a thick soup with bread for lunch and a two course dinner. There will be bread with lard or fresh cheese between meals. 

You can drink water or warm fruit tea all day and there will be coffee upon request. 

You can also visit a pub managed by organizers, where you can buy with CZK cash mulled wine, hot juice, non-alcoholic beer and even alcoholic drinks after the game.  

GAME ESTHETICS

Our aim is to provide as authentic experience of medieval life as possible, which is supported by the beautiful environment of the castle, medieval cuisine, music and most of all, the costumes. Despite that, we have decided that we will allow glasses and modern shoes. However, please take leather or faux leather, ideally two pairs. Please don’t take trainers. Military boots, hiking boots, other types of leather boots, modern winter shoes or snow boots in black or brown colour are acceptable. 

Players of the male characters, please take unicoloured cotton tracksuit trousers and some functional or merino underwear. If your character has a short surcoat, the trousers can be covered with leg wraps. 

Esthetic ideals of medieval people are different from the modern esthetic ideals and our costumes reflect this. The cuts are wider, obscuring the figure while the clothing is more colourful with more daring colour combinations than nowadays. We thank you for respecting this concept. 

ACCESSORIES

We will provide bags and purses. 

If your character is female, please don’t use too much make-up and try to use less expressive styles.

Most characters will get some headgear – female characters will get headdresses and veils, male characters will get coifs, capes and hoods. Again, this is in line with medieval tastes. 

If you sew or knit, please take the necessary equipment with you. There will be needles, threads, spare pieces of fabric, skeins and lucets. You can sew and embroider something or knit a string and you can keep the product as a souvenir.

WEAPONS AND ARMOR

We only use soft LARP weapons (BOFRY) and if your character is supposed to be armed, we will provide the weapons. 

We do not accept any metal weapons in our games which includes any sharp weapons. 

Some characters will have a light armor which will also be provided by us. However please note that our game is not focused on fighting so don’t expect full armor. You will get gambeson, some chainmail elements and a helmet. 

TOBACCO

The game is purely non-smoking. However we appreciate that this can be difficult for some of our players, there will be one place – the STABLES – where smoking and a small detour from the game is allowed. Smoking is allowed only in the STABLES before, during and after the game.

CHILL OUT ZONE

Since the game is emotionally challenging, the whole top floor of the castle will be dedicated to relaxation, taking a break from the roles and off game talk. Please don’t talk about game secrets or plots when out of character!
