Larp Review: Skoro Rassvet
Foreword : this article is a loose translation of an article that was originally written in French with the French-speaking audience it mind. It establishes comparisons with a sub-genre of historically inspired Larps that have been called “romanesque” in our own gaming culture. Romanesque means literally “that would have its place in a novel”, especially something emotional or very dramatic. As Larp goes, frenchstyle Romanesque larps have focused on character-based stories, 360...

Larp Review: Last Will - Second run
Foreword : this article was originally written in French and intented to present the main features of the game to the french-speaking audience, as well as highlighting what were, in my opinion, the incentive behind painful roleplaying. Some aspects of this article should therefore be read keeping this cultural bias in mind. The second run of the international Larp “Last Will” took place in Stockholm from the 2nd to the 4th of January 2015. This Larp displays modern slaves in a gladiator...

Review - Mad About The Boy - Part 1
Original post: http://www.electro-gn.com/6189-critique-mad-about-the-boy-partie-1 Translation: Leïla Teteau-Surel — Between the 24th to the 30th of June 2013 two sessions of the larp Mad About The Boy were organized in Sweden. A game in which all (except THE boy) the characters are women but which is sometimes run with some men (mixed run).

Larp Review: Just a Little Lovin'
Just a Little Lovin’ is a game designed by two Norwegians, Hanne Grasmo and Tor Kjetil Edland. It was played three times since 2011, and I had the chance to play the third run in Denmark this year. We were about 70 people there, during 5 days. The larp is described on its website (http://just-a-little-lovin.blogspot.fr/) as a larp about friendship, desire and the fear of death. The game takes place in America during the early 80’s, among the gay/lesbian/trans/drag community in New York...

The interactive mixing desk of larp
The mixing desk of larp is a great tool. As said on the Nordic larp wiki, it’s a framework for organizing your thoughts about larp design. We think it’s more than that. When we heard about it last year, we presented it to the french larpers and offered them a tool to play with it.   We had two purposes. The first one was that each organizer who wanted to speak about his/her larp to come, could fill the mixing desk to complete the speech and give to the players a good idea of...
