We dispel the myths, discuss the different types of LARP, and explain what to expect. Q&A follows. The panelists are presenting the 'Carnival Arcane' LARP this year, sponsored by Midnight Syndicate. New to LARPing? Aren't sure if you should try it, or even what 'it' is? Have you been avoiding LARPs because you think it's all either vampires or madmen with foam weapons? We will dispel the myths, discuss the very different events that all use the name LARP (from plot-driven to boffer combat), and explain what to expect at a LARP. So bring any questions you may have, and leave ready to take your gaming to the next level! The panelists have over 60 years of combined LARP experience writing, running, and playing, and this year we are presenting the 'Carnival Arcane' LARP, sponsored by Midnight Syndicate.
