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 Edition, Requiem, 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!

The Night in Question is less than four months away, and we are pleased to announced one of our special guest players, Jason Carl. Most of Vampire: The Masquerade fandom will recognize him from his amazing work as the Storyteller for the hit streaming show LA By Night, but that’s only part of his rich background working on World of Darkness products, other roleplaying games and of course, playing and running a LARP or two.
— Jason Carl @ DnD in a Castle 27 June – 3 July (@vampiresnvino) June 27, 2019
He’s an amazing roleplayer and immensely fun and creative person; and he’s looking forward to portraying his character and role-playing with you all as the Sabbat take over the dance floor on the Night in Question!
The first run of the Night in Question was an amazing success, with over 150 participants! We had a great time, the blood flowed and it was an amazing experience. And we’ve been given the greenlight light to do it again next year!
Some important changes this time around!
Blood bag tickets will be on sale from the beginning. People wanted more victims. More people wanted to be victims. So, blood bag tickets will be available.
Lower Prices. We will be lowering the prices of some tickets.
Changes to the Four Acts. We learned some important lessons, and over the next year, we will be rewriting some of the four acts of the game to reflect what we’ve learned.
More blood, more gore. We are already designing a ‘blood shower’ for the dance floor.
Bigger sets. Cauldron’s Keep is taking the money from our support and will be using it to expand their and add more to their city. And we’ll be doing a bigger badder versions of the Monomacy pit, the dance floor. And other great props are on their way.
Shirts will be optional. We will be making limited edition commemorative t-shirts again, but they will be an add-on purchased separately.
There are more changes incoming, but we learned a lot and it is only going to get more awesome.
Want to be a unique part of the Night In Question’s horrific experience, and help create an amazing horror atmosphere? Would you like to be a scream queen or king for a night?
We’re offering a special deal to players who want to participate but are willing to help us create the atmosphere and horror of the game in exchange for a lower price. The Blood Bags are players who will receive a simplified character concept to play out early in the evening, and then will be the victims of our vampiric players for the rest of the night! You’ll get chased by vicious vampires. You get covered in gore and blood. You’ll get to be the set piece of scenes of bloody carnage, or be the friend that the hideous Sabbat makes their new recruits kill. And you get to die over and over again in fun new ways as the night goes on.
Best of all, it’s only $39 to participate, and is great for anyone who likes a bloody participatory horror experience and becoming part of an awesome horror atmosphere. Only 35 are available, so grab them while they are still there!
May the night find you all well, Cainites. Here are some updates on the game and answers to some common questions.
One, thank you so much to everyone who shared and supported this project. We could not have reached 100+ players without you, and it’s an amazing moment for our team and for Vampire: The Masquerade LARP in general. So what now?

24 days ago, Jackalope Live Action Studios stepped forward and proposed a new and awesome way of experiencing the World of Darkness like never before.
Our estimates were that we’d maybe sell out our early bird tickets by the start of July, and we based our budget on that being the minimum needed to run our event.
Boy, were we ever wrong
As of this morning, all of our early bird tickets are sold, only 81 out of 100 of the standard tickets are left, and almost all of our premium packages have sold. We’re already on track to selling out the event completely. We’ve even talked about opening up a second run of the game if we have enough demand.
Over 100 people are already signed up to show up in November and breath a life into this night of blood, fun and terror.
Jackalope understands we’re a young studio, though all of us our veterans of running and playing LARP. We know that this represents a huge amount of trust and confidence being placed in us, both by our partners at White Wolf and all of our new fans and friends. We won’t let you down, and we’re proud that you have seen something in us worth fostering.
If you have already bought your tickets, let your friends know to get theirs before they run out. Watch your inbox for more updates, as our event team will contact you with important details. If you haven’t yet, get yours while you still can. We can only have so many people at the game.
Stay tuned in the next few weeks – we will be publishing more details on the game experience and our techniques, we will be announcing our hotel room block details so you can get discounted rooms for the event and we will have more fun plans coming up.
Also, if you are a member of Mind’s Eye Society, Underground Theater or One World By Night, pay attention to your organization’s announcements. We’re about to give some special fund-raising opportunities to those organizations which have fostered Vampire: The Masquerade LARP for all these years.
