Larp is blowing UP y’all. Two new webseries have arrived. Realm of LARP is a reality series released via the Nerdist YouTube channel, and will launch next week. In the meantime, they’ve got a teaser that explains what larp is:
In larp news locally (NJ-CT-PA), the sci-fi game Doomsday — run by several of the wonderful people who helped me produce a Cthulhu larp for my book — kicked off its campaign.
And in other roleplaying news, Jason Morningstar of Bully Pulpit Games, creator of Fiasco, my favorite RPG, has a Kickstarter up for his new game Durance, a game about a dystopian future penal colony.
Finally, y’all can catch me at Wyrd Con in Costa Mesa, CA this week at a variety of events. I’m giving a talk on US larp as metaphor for American national values, and running a couple jeepform games and an Ars Amandi workshop. Of course, there will be copies of Leaving Mundania available too.
