Panel Description

Live Action Role-Playing, or LARP, is a unique way to experience a game. Rather than sit around a table, huge groups of players get together and physically act out the story. It’s a combination of roleplay and improvisational theater. LARPs can be theatrical, parlor-style games focused on fictional politics (such as Vampire: the Masquerade), or dusty ‘boffer’ events in which players swing foam swords at each other (like Amgtgard or SOLAR). In Sweden and other parts of Europe, art LARPs aim to deliver tailored, emotionally-charged experiences. Some games have global reach, others are more locally focused. This panel aims to tell prospective new players how to prepare for their first LARP, and give prospective game runners advice in starting up their own troupes.

Come and see Rachel Judd, Ev Schauer, and Jill Barndt during PMX weekend, November 21 & 22.

Panel Details

The panel will be streamed live on Twitch on Sunday, November, 22, 2020 at 2PM. Questions will be accepted during the live stream through chat.
