LARP Theme: 
In 2023, Narthex travellers opened a portal between dimensions. While attempting to follow Hildegarde on their journey, they became disoriented and found themselves in the enigmatic realm of the Gossamer Fog. Now, the members of the five guilds must unite their powers and decipher the arcane mysteries of this peculiar land to reopen the portal and find their way back to Hildegarde.
