Lost Colonies is a fantasy live-combat campaign in Maryland. It uses an original live combat system, but also includes safety techniques typically associated with consent-based play like lookdown, and typically runs events at the YMCA campground at Sabillasville, MD, but events have happened in both Virginia and Maryland.
The game's story takes place in the original to the game fictional land of Torakand, which is set in an original subcreated world. While the game focuses on fantasy colonialism and exploration, game rules prohibit duplicating the crimes of real-world colonialism within the game, and the land the game is set in is specified to have been uninhabited at the time of the colony's founding. Play is largely focused on player vs environment exploration and adventure.
