Salon du Larp House: Paratopia

PARATOPIA

Fellow Twin Cities larp players, makers, and thinkers,

Please join us for Paratopia: a local larp design nano-festival for those who can’t make it to Metatopia in New Jersey, with 100% less New Jersey!

Many of you beautiful and brilliant people are spilling over with larp ideas, which has resulted in a number of larps in development. At Paratopia you can get the playtesting and feedback you need to bring your project one step closer to completion. And for those of you who aren’t yet developing a larp, let’s talk about that.

The inaugural event in our new series focusing on design and playtesting!

What

Paratopia, a day-long larp development micro-conference

Organized by TLS

When

Saturday, 3 November 2018 from 9am to 6pm

Where

Registration

We are requesting a pay-what-you-want goodwill donation ($10 suggested) to support the work of the nonprofit in appreciation for the use of their space, as well as covering food costs. No one will be turned away if they are unable to make a donation.

Larp House Presents: Beyond Boffers Workshop

The padded foam sword, called a boffer, has an honored place in larp as a safer way to simulate combat with weapons.
