ExArcana: Matriculation

Nerdy City Presents an Ex Arcana LARP event!

In the ashes of Hexenhammer’s defeat and the menace of ancient enemies returning, the House of the Strange Aeon’s star is rising. The Invisible College of the Arcanum, a venerable Cadre of professorial magisters and their non-human cohorts, have elected to come to New York to train the new guttersnipes (and refresh the Magisters) of this critical Chapterhouse in more Esoteric Schools of magic and the most secretive Cryptic Arts. In the much-needed lull between threats, it’s time to learn some new tricks.

ExArcana: The Grand Bizarre

Greetings! You’re invited to join us in that opening of a new venue downtown. The Portal Room, recently unearthed after nearly a century locked away behind an innocuous East Village location, appears to be a Victorian-era speakeasy complete with some very strange accoutrements! Apparently it was some sort of haunted Magician’s retreat called “The House of the Outer Spheres.” and it is incredible. We will be celebrating with live music, tantalizing burlesque dancers, vendors of marvelous wares, a raffle with exotic prizes, and exotic drinks. We hope to see you there.


Welcome to the Grand Bizarre! This is the inaugural event for Nerdy City's run of ExArcana. ExArcana will be the first Skein (story world) of the Chronos: Universal LARP System, produced by Eschaton Media Productions. ExArcana is a fantastic LARP of Victorian steampunk magic and intrigue set in the current modern day.

$25 Cover

(The Chronos Core Deck and Book will also be available for sale at this event)


At this event, there will be no combat and you are not obligated to play the game in order to attend. However, there will be plot for those that wish to pursue it, and clues that will lead into further events. Should you wish to play, please join us on Facebook at ExArcana LARP.

Online pre-registration will open on October 31. You must be 21, and have ID in order to enter the event space. The event will include musical performances, wonderful vendors, burlesque acts, and aims to introduce the attendees to the feel and the world of ExArcana.


Any questions about the Grand Bizarre event may be addressed to

For vendor inquires, please contact





Cross the Threshold and enjoy.

This is a pre-release event using the Chronos Core; the official ExArcana Deck and Skein Book will be available for sale in January.
