Dead Legends a Weird West horror survival LARP is set in an alternate history of the American West. 

Set in Lazarus Gap. Just a few days ride from the infamous Deadwood camp, settlers come here from all around to have a go at making a home in the remains of old Whiskey Creek,

The supernatural exists, but in most of the world it is relegated to myths and superstitions of eras of the past. Pioneers in the Black Hills, particularly Lazarus Gap, have discovered that there are terrifying realities behind many folklore stories.  Rumors abound of people coming back from the dead, the dead rising, strange man-like creatures living beneath the earth, forgotten gods and malevolent spirits, and other assorted supernatural phenomena.


Stories of these strange occurrences are attracting an abnormal mix of folk to the camp: religious fanatics, mystics, scholars, as well as fortune-seekers after gold and settlers just looking for a better life.

The Miracle of Lazarus

Like Jesus who saved the body and soul of Lazarus of Bethany, Lazarus Gap did so get it's name. Its here in the ruins of Whiskey Creek that many new settlers have witnessed the dead come back to life. Those who have returned to the mortal coil return unscathed by their deaths.  

No one is sure why it is that the dead come to life here in Lazarus. Some speculate that they are no longer of this earth, as if this is their punishment and Lazarus Gap is their purgatory. Others fear they are trapped in some loop doomed to live out their deaths for an eternity.


Whatever the actual truth, the denizens of Lazarus Gap keep coming back. 

The State of north America 

The States War for Independence ended in a draw, Texas seceded from the Confederate States, British Canada claimed more territory, Deseret in Utah stands as a frontier bastion of the faithful, the Sioux Nation established the First Nation of the Plains, and the Empire of Mexico reclaimed many of its south-western territories.


With gold having been struck in the Dakota territory  folks from all over the continent, and the wider world, have headed into the Black Hills looking to strike it rich or advance the agendas of their sovereign nation.
