You’re dead. And that’s fine!

At least, that’s what the cheerful sign you passed on the way in said. When it wasn’t somewhat alarmingly flickering in and out of existence.

To be perfectly honest, this isn’t the afterlife you were hoping for. Maybe you were expecting clouds and harps and cherubs; maybe you were expecting an endless party; maybe you weren’t expecting anything but nothingness. What you definitely weren’t expecting was bored, apathetic demons staffing a shoddy-looking neighbourhood that doesn’t seem like it’ll stay standing for the next two days, never mind the rest of eternity.

Something’s definitely not right here. And it’s up to you and your fellow deceased to put the pieces together and work out what’s really going on.

Welcome to the Neighbourhood is a slightly silly, slightly surreal mystery-solving LARP for around 40 players.
