This Months Show
Special Guest for this Show: Gideon Lawrence
We kicked off by going straight into an interview with Gideon of Wyvernstales Stories & Histories. Our first order of business was to congratulate him on a successful Kickstarter campaign. Before moving to talk about what Wyvernstales is (hint think storytelling, and bespoke larp), and the relationship this has to his ongoing club game Forest Argent. Gideon is doing an awful in and for the hobby and this combined with his outreach beyond the confines of active larpers made this a chat we were looking forward to,
Abusive Behaviour in LARP
Recent events that have torn part the images of a great many public figures in light of allegations of misconduct was the inspiration hear. The thought was if this is reported at a larp event what should be done. However the discussion widened. We needed to figure out as well if feeling uncomfortable about something was also something was also a problem. This turned into a longer than planned discussion. It turns out that the LARPBook show team hold varying views on this. Gideon had some very salient points and also our chatroom made some vital contributions. Perhaps the biggest conclusion we drew was that above all people must feel physically and emotionally safe at a larp. I thank everyone for their contributions.
