Larp Review: Bus Stop
Bus Stop is a small game about the encounter of people who are going to become friends. It is a feel good game for 3 to 5 players, and it lasts less than two hours with the workshops. You can play it in a small room, or even in the street. This larp is really easy to organize and play. The different scenes are simple, the characters are just sketched and you don’t have to expect a complex story. This game is focused on simple relationships in a small group of friends, and the pleasure to...

Larp Review: House M.D.
Translation : Leïla Teteau-Surel Season 1 With role-playing games you can be whoever you want. Or at least that’s what you’ve been told. But there is one evident truth : you will never be credible playing a barbarian if you only weigh 35 kilos. In particular, for certain professions eg a doctor’s role, it will be difficult to simply pretend. A doctor has an operation room, assistants around, a scanner. At least he needs a paperboard, don’t you think? But above all a...

Original post : http://www.electro-gn.com/474-critiquejediknight2-4 Translation : David Brosselin and Bruno Cailloux   The association Wargs wrote and organized three Larps in the Star Wars universe. The Jedi Knight series, 1, 2 and 3, who will soon have a younger sibling since episode 4 is in preparation. Before you sink into confusion, please note that these Larps are not consecutive. As a matter of fact, they have no common characters, the position in the Star Wars timeline is different...
