Présentation du jeu
Banbury Tales is a Regency larp inspired by Jane Austen’s books and the hit TV series Bridgerton.
We take on the roles of early 19th century British high society, who meet at the last ball of the season to participate in the marriage market either as matchmakers or marriage candidates. Both young men and young women were expected to enter into marriages that would bring wealth or prestige to their family name.
For the privileged members of English society in Jane Austen’s time, however, courtship was a complicated affair. There were certain decorum rules surrounding courtship that complicated the endeavor and that young ladies and gentlemen had to adhere to at all costs if they wanted to be accepted as potential participants in the high society’s marriage market.
