We dispel myths, discuss many different kinds of LARPS, & explain what to expect. Q&A session follows. This year, FYI is also running a LARP called "Out of the Darkness."

New to LARPing? Aren't sure if you should try it? Aren't even sure what "it" is? We dispel myths, discuss many different kinds of LARPs (from plot-driven to foam sword combat), and explain what to expect. Bring any questions you may have, and get ready to take your gaming to the next level! FYI has over 60 years of combined LARP experience writing, running, and playing, and this year we’re presenting a LARP called “Out of the Darkness,” inspired by Midnight Syndicate and Hammer Films.
