it was borne out of a very simple idea. LARPs traditionally existed in bubbles. Players only knew about a small number of larps
LARPBook was build to break those bubbles by shining a light on all the variations of larp.
We don’t really support any particular style of play (although all the team have their personal favourites). Our aim is instead to work with the larping community to show off the diversity of larp around the world.
We do this via this website; a YouTube Channel and social media.
