Evan Speaking to us from the USA) re: The Game Theatre and his own events:
Evan who was sporting his traditional roleplay head band bandanna and en-suite red hunky shirt wanted to talk about Dragon Thrones LARP (Not to be confused with the wrestling!!) and Stuart started with the compliment that Evans company amalgamate three types of LARP . Evan went on to say that he sees what they do as like three circles, the first he stated that there is the traditional Nordic type LARP rule light etc, in the second he says Mega Gaming (interactive) and the third is Game Theatre, improv’. He thinks that the mix of the three brings something new and as a result there is more inclusion. He quoted Derek Anderson who wrote about what Dragon Thrones do.
Stuart also stated that he was fascinated that the Game Theatre also include table top in on their events too which really sounded interesting.
Evan went on to say that they establish real external and character relationships to ensure inclusion and this really works and motivates them. The game then is run in real time with support in many ways to ensure the personal story and the main game becomes immersive in many ways and levels.
Unfortunately Stuarts Geography gotten all messed up as initially when he read Bryn Mawr he thought it was a lot more local than it was….but we set him straight on that!! Evans Bryn Mawr Castle is in the beautiful suburbs of Philadelphia.
Evan also runs other games as well as Dragon Thrones and went on to say about Off Broadway Interactive shows for new players which have been very successful. One he mentioned was “aces and operatives” a 007 style event. At this stage he also mentions “Bothwell School of Witchcraft” and his director Christopher Batarlis.
He then went to say about “ Midnight Millions” based on the “Brewster’s Millions” film which is party LARP. Here you are interacting with actors and is a murder mystery type LARP.
