LARP 101

Welcome to the exciting world of live action role-playing or LARP. LARPing combines the creativity of improvisational theater with the the structure of a tabletop role-playing game.

You will take on the role of a character and instead of describing your actions, you will act them out using the game rules provided in the rulebook. As your character you will need to fight, make choices, socialize, and explore within the game world to survive. Through your character you will be a part of a story created collectively by everyone at the game. We encourage players new and old to get into character and dive headfirst into the world of Spite.

For a very general but more detailed overview of LARP, we would like to direct you to Wikipedia entry on LARP and the 100+ articles, movies, and websites it references. One of our favorite documentaries on the hobby is Treasure Trapped.
