Theatre Arcanos runs LARPs based on popular fiction franchises, including works by Jim Butcher and Joss Whedon. We do not run our derivative games for gain or as a commercial enterprise, but as a labor of love, and we consider them a sort of fan fiction. We, in fact, spend a fair-sized chunk of money out of our own pockets every time we run one. While we will accept reimbursement for production or travel expenses, or donations of office supplies and props, we do not accept any sort of tips or remuneration for any of our derivative games.
The images used on our site are either free-to-use clip art, images in the public domain, or created by the credited artist for our use. The Theatre Arcanos logo was created by and is copyright Kimmi Allbee, and is used with permission.
The Dresden Files were created by Jim Butcher. He owns all the copyrights, and richly deserves all the money. You should totally send him bucketfuls.
Firefly was created by Joss Whedon, and while we still have not forgiven him for Wash, that doesn’t mean that he does not deserve the credit for creating the ‘Verse.

Our games use non-canonical characters and take place outside of the milieux of the books/program, but both game materials and play may reveal spoilers for the series.
