LARPSHACK is a group of amazing people interested in playing and promoting live action roleplaying in central North Carolina, with an emphasis on freeform, Nordic-inspired, and short-form parlor larp styles.
This community is being started by friends of Larp House, Kate Hill and Jason Morningstar. If you’re in the area, check ‘em out.
Also, we can’t help but take a little pride in their seemingly derivative name!
The purpose of this survey is to collect information and attitudes concerning documentation of larps, particularly in photo and video form. As larp, particularly Nordic Larp, gains ground as a cultural activity, the desire to document these events becomes more prominent, while the ability to document them is assisted by the ease of photographic devices and a general culture of constant documentation and dissemination of photo and video material. At the same time, many players raise concerns about how the presence of recording devices can affect them as characters and as players, affecting their in-game experience or their real lives after the larp. There are a few smaller parts of the questionnaire, followed by a 50-question section on players’ feelings on larps and photographic documentation. Part of the aim of this survey is to develop a community-led photo and video policy document that can be used by organizers for future projects. Thanks for your participation. All answers are anonymous.
This results will be publicly available, please help the larp community learn more about itself.
