Awakened cover
Awakened: Seeing the Unseen is a Conspiratorial Horror/Survival LARP game created by Mykal Lakim and published by Dark Phoenix Publishing. Awakened is published using both the L.I.F.E system and the Infinte System as a part of the Wastelands of Damnation roleplaying series. Awakened builds upon the Mortal Corebook allowing players to experience a unique lineage. Playing Awakened allows players to peek past the veil at the world of the supernatural without truly belonging.  


Awakened is a game of self discovery. As you learn the rules and play with your friends you will be tested both morally and mentally as you step into the shoes of an Awakened and begin your journey on The Lonely Road. Play with a few friends or play with dozens, we're sure Awakened will entertain and inspire you and your friends for endless nights of fun.

Game SystemEdit

Awakened: Seeing the Unseen is played using the L.I.F.E. System (Live-Action In Fantasy Environment). In addition to the games' rules the most important thing to memorize are the mechanics, based on the numerical value of four. The game can be played with a 12 sided dice or the traditional method of Throwing Chops (Rock, Paper, Scissors) making gameplay simple and easy to understand. In December 2012, Dark Phoenix Publishing announced the release of a Tabletop variant as well as another LARP varant known as Infinity which would simplify the mechanics of the game to appease gamers who felt number crunching was too difficult. 

Awakened in DamnationEdit

In the world of Damnation, supernatural creatures are everywhere. Their reach is limitless, they literally infect every aspect of the world from the heights of Paradise to the lower depths of Hell. From the Abyss stretching across the realms, the supernatural exist within the world of Damnation.

Awakened are humans who possess a supernatural ancestor somewhere within their lineage. This ancestor could be a vampire, werewolf or even a Fallen. The exact nature of the lineage may be hidden in the shadows, unknown to the Awakened. Like the Dhampir, Awakened have no actual society and are often picked up by others within the supernatural community when they come across the radar.
