The international run of HoW larp will take place between the 7th and the 10th of May 2015 in Stonetown near Humpolec (a town in central Bohemia, approximately 100 km from Prague). The language of the international run will be English. The registration for the game will start on 15 December 2014.
You will be accommodated in authentically styled log cabins and houses in Stonetown, a Western style town. The cabins will be shared by 6 or 8 people according to the characters they play. There are bunk beds with mattresses, but you will need to bring your own blankets (period-authentic or a sleeping bag). You can also bring a sheet – the mattresses are bare. Since the cabins will serve for playing during the day, please cover your sleeping bags and modern backpacks with blankets.
The town is equipped with modern flush toilets, sinks, and showers. All the main buildings are electrified. However, the cabins you will sleep in do not have electricity, so we recommend that you bring your own period-appropriate lamp. Since the town is not heated, please be prepared and equipped for cold weather.
Your meals are included in the booking fee. From Thursday evening to Sunday morning we will ensure 3 meals a day – vegetarian and non-vegetarian. If you have special dietary needs, please let us know.
Please bring a period-appropriate bowl (tin, wooden, ceramic), cup and a spoon.
The food is chosen to fit the setting and add to the atmosphere. Some of the items from the list may sound simple, but they will be prepared with care and there will be enough for everyone so all the players will be well-fed.

Transportation for international players
The larp takes place near Humpolec, a town 100 km South-East of Prague. Transportation will be provided by a bus that will pick you up at an easily accessible spot in Prague at and bring you to the spot. The price for both ways will be around 15 – 20 Euros. The transportation is not covered by the registration fee.
If you’ll be arriving by car, please go to the coordinates 49°31’17.573″N, 15°25’5.700″E (follow signs saying Stonetown). It’s possible to park near to the western town in a designated area.
The booking fee is 145 Euros. It includes the game, a unique Hell on Wheels T-shirt, a badge, food and accommodation in Western cabins. Please transfer the payment to our account by 3 February 2015. The payment details will be specified later on.
Since every cancellation before the game means a risk that we won’t be able to find a replacement for full price, we decided to set these rules for payment returns: If you cancel before the end of February, we will return 75% of the booking fee. Before the end of March we will return 50% and from April we cannot guarantee we will be able to give you money back. However, we’re very much hoping that we won’t need to apply these rules.
