With the start of the University term again I didn’t get so much time to write up tutorials – but I have a couple photographed and waiting on my computer!
But I did manage to shoot and write up a quick guide to distressing costume for a post-apocalyptic wasteland game – which coincidentally is where I spent my weekend! The World Went Dark was a fantastic game and I’ve got lots of thoughts to write up in November.
This month Leah talked about if action always has to mean violence, or if other mechanisms can be used to keep players busy and immersed in the game world.
Revisiting an old topic, Leah discussed the kind of paperwork you need for running a LRP game. It’s not an the most enjoyable aspect of running a game, but you really do have to get it right.
And on a more contemplative note, Leah also had a few thoughts about using film and TV when you’re writing LARP games – and her own experiences of running games without seeing their pop-culture inspiration.
Everyone loves to see photographs of LARP events, right? Hopefully seeing events you knew nothing about will inspire you to perhaps book a place the next time it runs!
Beth shot Aedan’s Bargain this month, an Empire player event run by members of the York University SF&F Society.
