Have you ever wished you were a mighty warrior that could strike down monsters with a single sweep of your sword? How about a cunning sorcerer that can freeze time and turn enemies to dust with a single word? Or perhaps you’ve envisioned yourself as a rebellious rogue that uses stealth to steal from the wicked and blend with the shadows? Whether you want to experience living in a fantasy world or simply wish to hone your acting skills, there is a place nearby that’s perfect for you!

Waypoint West is a Live-Action-Role-Play based game that takes place at Camp Lor-Ray in Muskegon. The creator of the event, Kiel Reid, has created an open world where you can be whoever you would like for an entire weekend. The idea behind Waypoint is that it is a single place connected by a vast series of gateways, all of which lead to different worlds. This gives you free reign on your character creation, whether you want to be based on medieval times or are looking for more steampunk attire.

There is also the choice of being a solo player or joining a team. Teams are created by the players, and their diversity is endless. Among the current teams of Waypoint are a party of half-animals led by a giant panda, a shady group of magic users that worship a dark fire, a non-combat guild of merchants, a crazy bunch of hollering cowboys, and a team of hopelessly broke misfits that call themselves mercenaries.

Waypoint’s most recent event was the Winter Feast, a combined effort with Haven, another LARPing community. The feast took place in a rental hall called Hagar’s Hideaway, where there was a hoard of food, games, and several tournaments. The “tourneys,” as they’re called, were based off of combat skill, bardic entertainment, and puzzle solving. Winners received prizes that included a free LARPing weapon and a massive leather-bound journal. Attendees of the feast also received a free level to put towards their character for future events.

Waypoint’s next event will be the weekend of May 12-14. The first event you attend is completely free of charge, so don’t be afraid to put yourself out there and try it!
