The Alchemists is a lighthearted, competitive party LARP by Jason Morningstar, currently in playtesting, with a tone that is humorous but not farcical. Players will take the role of candidates scheming, gambling, and vying to explain and demonstrate the most convincing extemporaneous nonsense in their bids for the post. We can run this with anywhere from 6-12 players. The game should be about 2.5 hours long, including an intro and debrief.The duchy of Gifhorn desires a court alchemist, and likely candidates have been drawn like flies to honey. Everyone has an angle, and only one will get the job, but the best candidate... might not be the best alchemist.

While this game does not deal in any particularly dark themes and does have safety mechanisms, it is competitive, and players sensitive to the implications of pseudoscience--for example, homeopathy or phrenology--may wish to take care.
