Musketeers is a What You See Is What You Get style larp where characters have minimal on-paper skills.
Characters may know things that grant them knowledge or bonuses performing specific actions but generally a player must role play an action for a character to perform it. If you want to drag an unconscious body out of the fight, you need to drag the body. If you want to win a game of chess, you need to play a good game of chess. Game mechanics generally exist where performing the actual action may be impossible, undesirable or unwelcome; such as fighting, wounding, poisoning, healing and sex.
Combat will be live action. Thrust-safe weapons and rubberband guns will be allowed for this game.
The lack of game mechanics covering activities like sneaking, hiding, picking locks, disarming traps, code breaking and forging shouldn’t be interpreted that these won’t be a big part of the game. Characters will have opportunities to perform these activities in game; but they either don’t need mechanics to represent them or uncovering the mechanic will be part of the fun.
In game 3, the existence of the supernatural was revealed in Paris. We are updating the rulebook to reflect anything new you may see in combat, new skills that player characters can pursue and new effects to be aware of in game.
We will be keeping the rules in the same spirit in which they start: minimal, non-disruptive, and as close to What You See Is What You Get as possible.
The rules are presented in a Rules Addendum pdf, available for download below.
