Live Action Role Play
‘You’ll love it,’ exclaimed Rosalie Pixie. Her engaging smile was infectious.
‘I already do,’ I replied.
With Rosalie’s help (alias Joe – fun-star of ‘& Co’ fame), the Reel Time team found itself on an open, floodlit field. Before us was an amazing sight. A story of epic proportions was unfolding. Baying cries of valour swept a battlefield where opposing sides had banded for an onslaught. Beyond the flames of chivalry, personal creeds and communion stood a solitary figure. A magus with her white garbs almost lost in the mists of time; as were the details upon which her character had been built. Her staff was held high. The eyes of the game masters watched for its fall. Let the games begin. It was an honour to be part of the local LARP community for this week’s episode of Reel Time.
Stylized characters are developed when participants physically act out their characters’ actions while pursuing goals in a fictional setting. Game masters facilitate the play, penalize rule breaking and determine outcomes. Established in the 1970’s and now a universal pheromone LARP events are as varied as the people who play them.
‘They come from all walks of life,’ explained Wind Whisperer, a descendent of the Sioux tribe (a real one). His staff of peace held firm in his hand. ‘All that are welcoming are welcomed.’
