“The events in Globe are an ongoing storyline, set in the lands of Tel Zohar, which is part of the larger NERO world. Elves, dwarves and other races come to the lands to trade or call the land home,” she said. “This summer the market gathers are set in an underground cavern area, as the civil war with the Desert Elves has closed the previous location. Market gathers attract both heroes and villains. Which do you want to be?” Formally known as NERO Central Arizona, the group has met for prior events at Lost Dutchman State Park and in the Verde Valley for live action role playing sanctioned under NERO International.

Founded in 1986, NERO has become the premier LARP organization in North America. In LARP, one becomes the character of their fantasies and, acting out the action, solve the mysteries and defeat adversaries with wit, intel-ligence and/or sword and sorcery.

At NERO events, one uses skills that their char-acter has earned, as well as the skills that the player brings to the game, much like King Arthur, Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter, Super Natural, Twilight, Blood Lines and Renaissance Fairs.

Whether the hero or the villain, their imagination has found a home.
