An expanding catalogue of websites for larp
Larp uses the web. Websites are part of getting information about events. Buying our equipment and keeping in touch. So much so that it’s getting hard to remember what larp was like before we all got on the Internet.
The websites category is for when we put specific attention on a website. We put links in our articles for sure. But these pages are all about shining a light on a particular site.
Use this part of LARPBook to help you find resources on the Internet.
Also if you happen to know of something that may be useful; then please send it to us. We’re always on the lookout for new things.

LARP is a new hobby. Although playing roles goes back to time immemorial what we know of as being a Larp is realistically not much more than 30 years old. This means that not many groups have achieved big anniversary milestones, much less thought of good ways to mark...read more

I first encountered Tested.com through a YouTube suggestion. In fact for a very long time I only watched the videos. I'd just pick one that sounded interesting and let it play. Over time I've realised that is more to offer than as a generic geek culture / maker...read more

This all started a few weeks back when a good friend tried to embarrass me on facebook by finding old scribe covers that I happened to be on. After a good chuckle it led me to root out of the cupboard my copies of the 1990’s LRP magazine and have a nostalgic browse....read more
