Role-playing Adventure Trips
A project by: Vadims Lomonovskis
We are a team of three young people, who feel passionate about travel and live action role-play games. Each team member has a special skillset:
- Vadim has a law degree and he is the wizard of paperwork and numbers. In our team, he is like an engine, pushing everyone forward.
- David is a classical computer geek. A promising IT specialist who slaves over this exciting project day and night, making our future website pretty.
- Jana is an international tourism and marketing specialist. She is responsible for operations, customer relation, marketing and communication.
Combining our skills, we cover all aspects of the business to ensure its smooth running.
About our idea
Modern transport networks and open borders enabled us to travel quite frequently. However, trips often turn out to be remarkably similar to each other: wondering around the city, eating in restaurants and joining an excursion to visit a few landmarks. After having done a few trips like this, many people don’t remember much about each place they visited.
We decided to ‘add some spice’ to usual holiday package, making your experience unforgettable. Our idea is to provide role-playing adventure trips. You will see new places in different light, while completing quests, solving riddles and looking for artefacts in various locations throughout the duration of the whole trip. All these activities will be the part of the same storyline, immersing you into a real adventure, just like in a book or a movie. Of course, you will still see all of the iconic tourist sights, because your path will pass through them and some of those sights may be the key to solve the riddle.
How will it work?
1. Before the trip
You chose the storyline that interests you, for instance, vampire hunting, spy story or detective. Then you complete a form to let us know about your other preferences, such as the city of departure, preferred transport mode, preferred accommodation type, etc. The rest we organise for you:
- accommodation and transport
- plot and scenario of the game
- local actors and places for your encounters and adventures
- game requisites (such as letters, treasures and other artefacts)
2. During the trip
Before you start your journey, you will receive the first letter (or will be contacted in another way) with the introduction into the story. This introduction will explain your mission in the upcoming adventure and provide you with the further action instructions. From that point onwards, you will be solving riddles and encountering our ‘agents’, who will play their roles to create the atmosphere and direct you to the next steps. Solved riddles will lead you to various locations in different cities and countries.
3. We will support you
We will organise the role-playing adventure trips so that you will have enough time to solve all riddles and visit interesting sights. However, you will have a time limit to get to the next point, because we will have pre-booked rooms and activities for you. If you struggle or lose a clue, you always will be able to contact us and we will help you find your way back to your adventurous path.
We will work with different accommodation providers as well as freelancers around Europe to organise the role-playing adventure trips for our customers.
Our entity will offer local students the opportunity to become our ‘agents’. We believe it can be a good chance for them to develop their skills as well as get extra income whilst having a very flexible working schedule.
