So I have read, played, and designed a number of LARPs. In all of this exploration of the LARP space there are certain elements that keep on coming up no matter what style, genera, or rules.
For someone designing a LARP or running a LARP an understanding of these elements is critical to obtaining the style of game you and your players desire.

My plan is to post the first article tomorrow, and then do an article a week after that. So I’ll see you tomorrow.
