Protector 2


They year is 2019 and another Protector event will be held in July this year. Last year we made really big changes into the game settings and game area, literally we made a restart. We re-located Zabul´s capital to Sarkani while Khas Konar has been abandoned, also main ISAF base has been re-located to another location a some villages changed their position too. Some succesfull in-game mechanics have been enabled too. Some of participants took over some personal responsibility too and joined the event´s preparations and brought some private enterprises with. With your help we made Protector great again. Now the plan is to apply some minor changes and operation map extension – we manage to rent a new part of surrounding area (NE from Zabul) full of great hilss and denses forests. Its name is Paktika, another province of Afghanistan. Movement (presence) in this newly added are is according some special rules.

Prostor 2

There are many unique parties meeting and interacting each other – local villagers, ISAF soldiers, various agents, afghan police and army, medics, armed rebel groups, news teams and other characters and groups. The result of this mix depends on participants and their story engagement.

What is LARP ?

live action role-playing game (LARP) is a form of role-playing game where the participants physically act out their characters' actions. The players pursue goals within a fictional setting represented by the real world, while interacting with each other in character. The outcome of player actions may be mediated by game rules, or determined by consensus among players. Event arrangers called gamemasters decide the setting and rules to be used and facilitate play.

This year we have incredible 16th installment of this legendary event, the org team is almost the very same with cumulated skills resulting in kind of event you will never forget. Together with Operation Kandahar II. in April and Operation Lizzard X. in May this the Protector is the third event in a row situated in Zabul. Contrary to those two events at Protector the main goals are reconstruction of the country and peacekeeping operations. Still both Kandahar and Lizzard are to have strong influence at Protector´s starting conditions.

As usually you can arrive on site few days prior the event start too so you can take in a „preProtector party“ in the capital Sarakani. And since the event ends on Saturday evening this year you can also take part in after action party. Or in both :-)

We succesfully tested so called Game Marshalls at last Protector, they were overseeing and handling rules violations. They will be present on site this year too for your better gameplay and safety.

Again, all Protector registrations are subjects of authorization proces which is made and controlled by the orgs only.
