As the chill winds of the coming winter start to blow, Black Annis still holds the peaks and valleys of the Dragonspines north of the Dragons Eye, as she has done since last winter. There she continues to work, seeking an entrance to the Dwarven hold of Borthawr, lost to the outside world for years –though for what reason we are unsure.

The summer also brought us word that Annis has formed an alliance with the one known as the Traitorous Son who also has intentions in Borthawr. He is a powerful and ambitious individual and secured his title as The Most Hated Dwarf in all history when he kidnapped Pebble ar Gaed, Soldier of Fortune, and former Warmaster of the Dragons earlier this year; his involvement is a grave concern.

Should either one of Black Annis or the Traitorous Son succeed in their ambitions it could herald grim times indeed. But there is yet hope…

While Black Annis’ forces still lurk in the mountains and harry the nearby Keeps, recent scout reports say that the army of demons and cultists which had sided with her has fled. The cause is uncertain - a broken alliance, perhaps? Or maybe the death of their leader…

With the loss of the demonic army, Annis has lost the more able and experienced half of her forces. Now she sits in the mountains commanding an ill-disciplined mob of umbral beast – still potent but a much easier fight for our armies.

The spring will bring a chance to reclaim our great mountain peaks, and to fight our way to Borthawr. With the ancestors on our side, we will get there before they get into the Hold and retake it ourselves. If not, we’ll go in after them, and fight them tooth and nail to uncover their ambitions and stop achieving them.

I don’t care whose house it is – We’re going to come a’knocking

OOC Details

Date: 31st March – 2nd April 2017

Drakelow Tunnels

Drakelow Lane

DY11 5SA Stourbridge


This is a combat oriented event set in the Dwarven hold of Borthawr, it will feature adult themes and is a strictly 18+ event.

This event takes place in the Drakelow Tunnels, a WW2 underground factory and tunnel complex which has only ever been used for one (non LT) larp event. It is a huge maze of corridors, dimly lit with a unique atmosphere. There are pictures on the website but they do not do it justice.


All players and monsters will sleep in the tunnels. There are a number of service rooms that used to be sleeping quarters for people unlucky enough to work there. We will be using old dormitories, which are “rooms” built within the tunnels. They will be shared mixed gender rooms. There are toilets but only cold showers.


All bookings include food

Due to restrictions with existing facilities at site as well as limitations on what can be done within the tunnels
self catering is not possible

Food is being provided by a carefully selected catering van. The site has no catering facilities and cooking is not allowed inside so food will be part of the ticket price. The menu will consist of hearty cooked food like chillies, baked potatoes, English breakfasts etc. A menu will be released closer to the time.

Please let us know as soon as possible if you have any special dietary needs to pass on to the caterers. They can cater for all requirements.

Considerations and Warnings

The event takes place almost entirely underground. As such we can guarantee the “weather” will be cold (11 degrees), (very) dark, slightly damp and it will not rain. Please do not underestimate these conditions. You will need to bring:
  • A small OOC light to keep on you at all times for your OOC safety.
  • Warm clothing, especially sleep wear.
  • Sleeping bags, blankets and camp/air beds that elevate you off the ground.
  • Although not a necessity IC lighting would be very useful (real gas/oil lamps will not be allowed). These will be regarded as non combat props and must be safe to be used as such
  • Hot drinks will be available throughout the event and we advise you bring snacks to help keep warm and keep spirits up.

Please note that the event will be underground. While the tunnels themselves are quite large, elements of the set may mean that there will be occasions where players will feel enclosed, or may have to squeeze through small spaces.

You will be spending the majority of the 3 days underground. The tunnels themselves are a No Smoking area. There is no easy access to outside from much of the complex. Vapes will be allowed in designated areas.

If you do not like the dark this event is probably not for you. The site will be lit entirely by artificial lighting, either fluorescent or LED. The fluorescent tubes can be seen to pulse slightly at times due to the generator.

If anything in these copious warning notes will cause you problems, either from claustrophobia or other medical condition, or you have any other concerns about attending this event, please contact the event team to discuss your needs and whether can support you to enjoy this event fully.

Please consider carefully whether you wish to attend this event. Ultimately, we would like you to feel able to attend and enjoy this event - but it is up to you to decide your limits. While we do not intend to use it, the Event Team reserve the right to refuse admission on any grounds (e.g. if we deem that it would be too much of a risk for you to attend).

Ticket Price:

  • Player: £90 (Play and Meal ticket)
  • Monster & Staff: £30 (Meal Ticket only)
  • Deposit Ticket: £10 (see Paying in Installments below)

Please Note: All booking options display two ticket options - the expected one and the Deposit one.
Please ensure you have selected one and only one ticket type when booking to ensure you are booked correctly and not over charged.

While this event looks expensive at £90, when you factor in the cost of the meal ticket it is “only” £5-£10 more expensive then one of our regular events. We have done all we can to subsidize the monster food ticket but are unable to reduce that price, we can assure you this will be a unique event to monster!

Payment can be via bank transfer or PayPal. Due to PayPal costs our preference is for bank transfers but PayPal is accepted for one off payments only. Please contact command@dragonsfaction.org for our bank details.

Paying in Installments

The option to pay for the ticket in installments is available upon request. If you wish to pay via installments please book the "Deposit" ticket and contact command@dragonsfaction.org within 7 days to discuss full payment of your Ticket. Failure to do so will result in your booking being cancelled without refund of your deposit

All attendees must pay for their Ticket in full before being allowed to attend the event.

All cancellations are subject to a £10 administration fee. Bookings may not be transferred as we are anticipating a booking queue

Please contact us before booking as Staff while your contribution is valued we have a number of refs already allocated and are strictly limited by the number on site.
