Just beyond the next dune on the Eastern horizon rises the gleaming city of Al-Ashtara, renowned for its exotic wares and exquisite tastes. There are whispers; however, that the Caliphate might be starting to unravel - a fact which has not escaped the notice of those who wish to take advantage of the weakening rule. Friend and foe alike cast their eyes towards the night skies, looking to read their destinies in the stars...and perhaps find the means to change their own fate.
Enter a world where allegiances shift like the desert sands; where the schemes are as intricate as the silks; and in the bustling marketplace, the only thing more elusive than the sweet smell of incense on the desert breeze is the band of thieves slipping between the merchants' stalls. The Stars of Al-Ashtara illuminate the enchantment, mystery, and danger that await you in an Arabian bazaar-where everyone has a secret.
Stars of Al-Ashtara is a traditional theater-styled larp of dark intrigue, high romance, politics, secrets, wonder, danger, and more that brings together larger-than-life characters of all walks of life. This larp is inspired by both the historical time period and as many of the plots from the 1001 Nights stories as we could fit in.

I AM BATMAN.
Apart from that, I write and run many LARPS with Brian Richburg under our Lovers & Madmen name - you've probably seen us in the Friday night lineup for most of the past decade. My games have included: Kingsword, Thicker than Water (with Kristen Patten), Venezia, Devil to Pay, Mayfair in the Colonies, Stars of Al-Ashtara, Redemption, and Elanthia.
As a player, both IC and OOC, I am a villain. Just kidding, I'm totally nice. Please trust me in our next game together.
