LARPBook Show Episode 61: Tooth Out

LARPBook Show Episode 61: Tooth Out

In this episode I’m absent following a tooth extraction. Of course the team take some time out of the show to have plenty fun with the idea of a mouth numbed Rob unable to talk or drink. (the swines!).

The team take quite a bit of time talking about their findings and experiences at this years What’s Your Game Kit Fair. Luke is having his eyes opened to larp beyond fantasy. There is  a lot of reminiscing about the fair, and the main thrust is that it is incredible and very highly recommended.

A larping group in the US have bought some new property. Do you want to know more: http://www.wiscnews.com/juneaucountystartimes/news/local/article_bfe7389d-f09b-5d80-8ae8-b8f82734bcf8.html. The team love stories about larping groups gaining property. It’s a great sign of the hobby maturing and growing that many larpers are now buying and running their own.

We also learn that Luke allegedly thinks that Gary Gygax is an incarnation of pure evil (sounds legit).

Which allows for a neat little segue into the terrors that guys have faced at the hands of D&D DM’s over the years.

And then

We also take a look at an article in Wired which looks at some ‘Hardcore’ ie – very well equipped larpers. If you’d like to know more take a look at this gallery: https://www.wired.com/story/photo-gallery-larping/

A special mention must go to the chat room who were just great for this episode. Thank you.

What’s Your Game  – Interview with Myke Slater

What’s Your Game – Interview with Myke Slater

Myke Slater has been around UK larp for a very long time; there is a fair chance that if you have never me him in person that you know someone or know of someone who has known Mike for ages. He’s been around major larp systems and he’s also a cartoonist. When Luke noticed him at What’s Your Game then he just had to go for an interview.

One of Mykes trademarks is introducing images of goblins into pictures where you might not expect to find them.

Oh and that sword on his back. That’s not a katana – that’s just his umbrella.

 

Whats Your Game – Interview with Daniella and Steve

Whats Your Game – Interview with Daniella and Steve

Daniella and Steven thought that they were out for a quiet bit of shopping for larp gear in costume. That is until Luke spotted them and decided that it would be a great opportunity to talk to some larpers about how they were using What’s Your Game.

It turn out the both were players in Age of Aether. A steam punk larp set during a 2nd Martian invasion. We’ll put a link to it at the bottom of this page.

Interestingly they seemed to get that most British of accessories, a larp safe sausage roll.

Whats Your Game – Interview with Enys Coggles

Green Cloaks has burst onto the UK larp scene and expanded incredibly quickly. It’s rise has been swift so you may be wondering what it is. If so then look no further as we had a chance to talk to Enys Coggles the larps creator at the What’s Your Game kit fair.

Also expect to learn more this year as the larp book team will be going to Green Cloaks Events.

He writes the Akurite Empire series. Also he wants to bring publishing to larp.
