LARP ideas and theory.

Hi, All. This is an invitation to join a new list for discussing LARP ideas and theories.

Here is my idea; I want to share ideas about LARPing, about what you can do with the medium, about how to write fantastic games that are very powerful experiences. I’m interested in some specific subjects, but the list is going to be open to everyone to discuss quality LARPing.

Some example topics I’d like to cover include;

* Stealing techniques from actors, screenwriters, costumiers, and effects people.
* Scandinavian-style LRP
* Creating player-led games
* Immersion in LRP
* Theories of System design
* LRP as a form of art
* Improvisation in LRP
* LRP as a creative outlet
* Systemless and freeform LRP
* Plot-seeding in large games
* LRP and storytelling
* Running high-quality small games (<50 players)

If you're interested, please give me a shout with your email address and I'll get you on to the list.

      • s’right. I noticed you mentioned a Maz in a post about manchester – is that Maz Wilberforce (thaniel shore in Maelstrom, part of ‘the family’ at CP?

      • Nope – it’s Maz Worthington (nee Teasdale) who I used to share a house with. Sadly, she doesn’t LRP any more.
        I know Alex who’s hosting your list on his server, though ๐Ÿ˜‰

      • Cool! I met Alex at the first maelstrom – he’s also in The Loom. A man with fine taste in wigs. ๐Ÿ˜‰

      • Oh! Thinking about it – is the Maz you mentioned the lass who had the gorgeous Dracoscion kit at Maelstrom? If so, I do know her, but not very well – chatted to her a couple of times at SoS and once at UMIST beer festival.
        Writing documentation at work. Brain has ceased working…

      • I was playing Leaves, a newly Awakened Dryad.
        I was completely independent – not with any group at all. Spent most of my time with the other dryads, Freeport, Forever’s Trading, Clan Anaguma and whoever happened to be in the bar
