In the latest enterprise, Harry Potter fans have the opportunity to attend a different wizardry school early next year.
Rather than creating an exact replica of Hogwarts, organisers decided to invent a new school based on the famous wizarding school at the Polish castle of Czocha. In November, a Polish company Liveform and Rollespilsfabrikken staged their first Live Action Role Play event based on the Harry Potter book series and movie franchise with around 190 participants from 11 countries.
The four day event costs approximately £220 (US$ 345.700) which includes food and accommodation. You are also provided with a wizard robe, a study book and a house tie during your stay and these can be purchased if you’d like to keep them as souvenirs.
Right. What would I do with similar circumstances—with a popular series of novels, and the public clamoring for more?
What about allowing fans to experience a vision? Unfortunately, by whispering advice to another being (in this scenario it would be an automaton within a controlled room) the participant's suggestions could work for good or evil. That might bring out the worst in humankind. But what about grading each player, like a gamer? Those who suggest evil actions could go to the lowest level, and rise until they reach the highest rank. Edgar Cayce, the renown psychic healer from the 40s, suggested heaven is divided into different planes in just such a way.
