Welcome to Mansfield with Monsters. Mansfield with Monsters is a LARP for 13 players set in an alternate version of post World War I Wellington. The LARP should run for 2-3 hours and requires a space that can represent the living room of a well-to-do couple. Mansfield with Monsters was written to celebrate the release of the book of the same name by Matthew and Debbie Cowens (http://www.steampress.co.nz/monsters.html ). You don't have to have read the book to enjoy the LARP, but you might want to check it out anyway.
Mansfield with Monsters uses pre-generated characters. The GM should familiarise themselves with the character sheets as they contain details of underlying plots and explanations of special powers. The gender ratio is 8 female and 5 male. Three of the female characters (Elsie Kelvey, Rosemary Fell, and Phillipa Fell) could be rewritten as male fairly easily.
