Episodes

In this podcast we feature our local storyteller, CW Fox (also known as Paul Howell), who talks about all the different ways to get involved with the story of a LARP game. Great advice for players who are stuck in trying to get more involved with story arcs in LARP OR for Storytellers who run into problems getting their players more involved into story.

Our Local Storyteller, CW Fox (also known as Paul Howell), is now posting some of his advice on his storytelling resource website http://www.cwfox.com

Want to play a magnetic force of personality that draws several people to you? Or are you a bit shy in socializing and have no clue how to become a leader among people or an influence that gets the attention of others? 

In this episode, our largest podcast with six people at the table, we talk about how to play a high charisma character with people and storytellers that have experiences playing these types of characters in a LARP and practical tips on creating charisma when portraying your own character. 

Also covered in this podcast, the "Dark Future" mod in Twin Mask where newer players have the opportunity to experience leadership when the current leadership in the game falls drastically out of power in an alternative timeline/dream vision. 

Our guests:
Paul Howell, Head of Story for Twin Mask

For our 10th episode, Cyn and Omega initiate Kai with taking a LARP Quiz together. We take the first LARP quiz listed in Google without knowing anything about the quiz.

We also decide on a word that prompts us to drink while taking this quiz... in retrospect, we should pick another word than the word we have picked.

If you want to take the quiz along with us, you can find here at: http://www.playbuzz.com/willemijnk10/what-kind-of-larper-are-you

Cyn, Kai and Omega sit with Kristaan Barrick of the podcast, Chimichanga Suoperstar, who has never LARPed before and we sit down and go through the character creation process and make superheroes (or supervillains) together for his first LARP! We also discuss if places and events like Wasteland (which Kai and Kristaan attended), Labyrinth of Jareth and Hogwarts in Universal Studios are considered LARPs.

We are using the alpha rules provided by SuperLARP for the character creation, which is in its beta phase. A copy of those rules can be found here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/130929130849119/

In this podcast, we ask a new LARPer who started LARPing three months ago about her experiences from how she first started and what she enjoys about it. Later, Omega gives her and co-host Cyn a LARP vocabulary quiz on commonly used abbreviations like "IC/OOC" to more obscure and specific terminology like "FOIG", "Inigo Montoya" (as applied to a LARP) and "Brazilian LARP rules".

Joining Cynthia Marie and Ryan Omega is none other than Cynthia's sister, Lex, who joined in a new vampire LARP. As a new LARPer, she shares her experiences of her first time LARPing and how it's like to roleplay with your real-life sister as another character at game.

In this podcast, we cover how to play the role of the antagonist (aka the bad guys) and the special responsibilities that player has if they go after other players but want to maintain an enjoyable roleplaying experience at a LARP.

We also cover how playing an antagonist relates to the concept of bleed, where in-character emotions transfer into real-life and what to do to accommodate those emotions to keep player relationships healthy.

Joining us for this podcast is our special guest, Tobias McCurry, is a costumer, prop maker and entertainer out of Seattle who is best known for his works on "Steampunk'd" as a maker. Tobias specializes in genres from Steampunk and Post-Apocalyptic, creating immersive works involving costuming, prop weapons and more...

And also joining us is our new co-host, Kai Norman of Kommissar Props, and we are looking forward to having him join us on our many podcast adventures going forward!

There are many relationships fostered as a result of roleplay, prominently in-character but also extend beyond gaming. Dating is not uncommon in the LARP world and many even get married in Real-Life as a result of having met their mate in game.

Cynthia Marie and Ryan Omega cover attraction, dating and the crossover of feelings from in-character to real-life in this podcast. With our guests who run a LARP, we also cover how those relationships are managed at events.

Joining us are our special guests, John and Angela Basset, a married couple who met doing LARP years ago. John is also the creator of the LARP, Twin Mask, and Angela is the Head of Logistics for that same LARP.
