Fellow larpers I need your help.

I’m looking for help/feedback/suggestions with regards to near future/sci fi/dystopian/post apocalypse larp

Firstly have you ever been interested or played this type of larp?
what would draw you/ what drew you to this type of larp:
Cool original setting?
Familiar TV or film franchise setting (stargate/firefly etc)?
Familiar TTG game setting (40k/cyberpunk etc) ?
Familiar videogame setting (S.T.A.L.K.E.R /Metro?
Rules heavy or rules light and RP it out (within reason)
Cool ranged combat (nerf/laser guns/ call system)?
Cool melee combat (chainsaws/ powerswords/ cricket bat with nails in it) high calls/ no calls?
One off events or ongoing system?
One day events or weekend event? If weekend events how many per year ?
Cost?
Travelling distance?
Costume requirements?
Cool props & puzzles to play with?
Anything I have missed?

Thank you for any help with this

Mike

Depends what you want in your antagonists. If you want opportunity to be weird and wonderful, then some world ending event like the total nuclear annihilation of fallout gives you carte blanche for all kinds of crazy monsters and effects. If people are the main antagonists, then Cyberpunk next year (or 2020 as it used to be called) is a pretty cool aesthetic.

But there are already fallout systems out there...
