The Night in Question 3 Postponed, Now Set for Sept. 11th, 2021

Jackalope Live Action Studios has postponed the third run of The Night in Question by one year, to September 11th, 2021.

People are more important than LARP. Nothing we do is worth risking the lives and well-being of our players, our staff, and our loved ones. When we began watching the COVID-19 situation early this year, we had hoped that the pandemic would be over by the end of the summer. But this has become extremely unlikely, for a variety of reasons.

We share your frustration and disappointment at having to do this. We love running our events, and this is the first postponement we’ve done in three years. But we look forward to running a safe and awesome event – now with extra preparation!

Next year, it will be one hell of a party.

Tickets

At this time, all tickets for the 2020 event are being honored for the 2021 event. Tickets will be changed to be available for next year, and can still be purchased for the new date.

Given our existing commitments and contracts, we cannot offer refunds at this time.

The Event Location & Hotel

The game’s location of Cauldron’s Keep has not changed, but we are currently changing arrangements with our hotel. As such, a new hotel block is not available and the game’s designated hotel may change. 

If you have purchased a Blooded or True Monster ticket, you do not need to do anything. Jackalope will handle the new reservations included with these tickets. If you reserved a room with the hotel directly, you will need to contact them to receive a refund.

Characters

If you have selected a character, or have a custom character being written, you keep that character for the new 2021 run.

Character Selection and COVID-19

As The Night in Question 2020 looms closer, we’re tackling two important questions today – when will character selection open, and what about the ongoing COVID-19 situation.

Character Selection Begins July 3rd

We will be opening character selection on next weekend, beginning July 3rd. If you have bought a ticket, please watch for emails. Invitations are issued in the order that they were purchased. They will go out at regular intervals over the next two days, allowing ticket holders to select their character using the Larpweaver system.

If you already have Larpweaver account, you will be invited to sign in using your existing account. If you do not have a Larpweaver account, you will receive a special link to register one.

The best place to get support and get questions answered during character selection is the Jackalope Live Action Studios Discord. You can join the Discord using this link: https://discord.gg/zBQb7WZ

COVID-19

The COVID-19 pandemic continues. This raises serious ethical issues about running events like the Night in Question during these times. When the global pandemic began early this year, we held off any rescheduling in hopes that it would be safe and the situation resolved by this September.

Obviously, especially in Texas right now, that is not the case. We won’t go into the reasons, save to say, we are as displeased and disappointed as you are. (The words ‘absolutely furious’ come to mind, but we digress.)

We will be making a decision in the next two weeks. If safety concerns demand it, The Night in Question will be rescheduled for approximately the same time next year. If that happens, we will honor all the tickets for the event for the new date. You will keep the characters you have chosen. However, we will ask for your understanding that we won’t be able to issue refunds when we reschedule. Between event costs, overhead, and staff contracts, we won’t be able to recoup much of the event funds.

People are more important than LARPs, and we know you will understand and bear with us in making the right decisions in this difficult time, when it comes time to make them.

Announcing our story lead, Rachel Wilkinson!

Only 16 weeks until the Sabbat run rampant, and we’re announcing our story lead, Vampire: The Masquerade author and larpwright Rachel Wilkinson!

Rachel is a writer, digital content creator, and a podcaster who has spent over a decade in the larp community. From Houston, she’s one of the original writers for The Night in Question and is coming back to steer the writing team toward an even darker and bloodier second run. As a passionate advocate for highly-immersive, theatrical larp, she’s contributed to Peculiar Crossing’s Armistice Arcane, written for Reverie Studio’s Eskhaton, and creates self-running larps for first-time immersive enthusiasts.

Ever drawn to things that go bump in the night, Rachel stays connected to the World of Darkness as a member of the Mind’s Eye Society where she’s acted as a Storyteller and Coordinator over her many years in the hobby. She also works with Onyx Path Publishing as a freelance writer bringing her creativity to Vampire the Masquerade 5th EditionRequiem, and Scion.

When she isn’t writing, Rachel goes on romps through the witchy world of divination, fortune-tellers, and spiritual mystics in her podcast Lifemancy to help mainstream the occult for everyday people.

So where will you be on the Night in Question? Don’t miss out, get your tickets now!
