LARP, What is it?

LARP stands for Live Action Role Play It is a type of roleplaying game where participants physically act out the actions of their characters. Each player of the game follows their own set of objectives. Interacting with the aims of other players. These games are typically structured around a story. Participants therefore not only interact with each other but with the game itself. This creates a unique shared experience.
