Additional Information: HistoryAlive! is a Historical Role-Playing Game.  It is a mix of improv theatre, an audio book and a guided tour.

During a session, an actor named “Game Master” narrates a story based on a key Historical event. They introduce historical context (important dates, etc) through music, maps, engravings and photos to allow the event to take place in your imagination. But as a participant, or Player, you also become a major part of the event that is taking place!

You will play a non-magical character (doctor, soldier, etc) and your guide-storyteller embodies other characters who interact with you. While meeting new protagonists, you will also learn centuries-old ways of working, feasting, and living through these inhabitants of History.
