Role Initiative Philly LARPs are a group of World of Darkness Vampire: the Masquerade games set within the nationwide Blood and Betrayal Chronicle, played in the Philly and NJ metropolitan area.

Our Masquerade games use the By Night Studios Mind’s Eye Theater rules.

Welcome from PAX Unplugged!

Role Initiative Philly had a fantastic run at PAX Unplugged, showcasing Vampire the Masquerade 5th Edition to hundreds of players, and running the first LARP at a PAX Event, ever! We’re grateful to everyone who helped made the weekend a success, including, White Wolf, By Night Studios, and our friends at Underground Theater and The Wrecking Crew.

If you’re from the area and enjoyed our PAX Games, come visit us at our monthly Camarilla and Sabbat games, and our meetup on 4th Tuesdays! If you’re from elsewhere and looking for a LARP near you, we can help you find it! Either way, send us a message for more info!
