Larp Howitzer by Noctiped Larp Howitzer by Noctiped
A project made by me and three friends for the larp Krigshjärta 5 summer 2011. I helped build it, but didn't actually use it ingame.
Everything except the wheels are built from scratch.

Made for blank firing only, but creates a very powerful sound bang. Loaded with gunpowder, and a modern powder fuse.

Turned out to be heavy, but not impossible to move around.

Efter sommarens lajv känns det av någon anledning som om många kommer tänka som du nästa gång... =P

Well, it is pretty close visually, but the guild, as it is called, is a organization that fights for free trading, and their culture of agreements, contracts and money. Visually inspired by 16th century german soldiers(landsknechts), but with a lot of steampunk influences, as airships, toic smoke grenades, long-range rifles and so on.

Going through favs I come across this again, and have a few questions, if you don't mind:

1. Do you have a smoke effect for any of the guns and such, to show firing?

2. Where all do you hold this, I see you're from Sweden, but is there anything going on in the U.S. ?

Well, black powder comes with its own smoke effect. =P
Every shot uses about 5-10 grams of powder. We use no projectile though, people have to
take the hit themselves.

I have absolutely no idea. There may be some reenactment associations that uses cannons, but I am
fairly sure that there is no larp that allows it in the U.S.
You could come here and play with us though. There is space in the fiction for english-speaking people. =)
