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.
