Two hundredth post!

Two hundred! We're at two hundred posts now! The second hundred posts had gone much faster than the first - first took 14 months, second only six and a half.

A list of top posts ever has changed somewhat:
1. Drachenfest 2012
2. A hundredth post!
3. Interview with the Larp Girl: Kaza Marie Ayersman, Avegost larp
4. ConQuest of Mythodea 2012
5. Smrt japanskog cara - Death of the Japanese Emperor

6. Terra Nova: Zimograd - how it was
7. Crolarp 2012 review
8. Tragači zore review
9. Fallout larp 2012 review
10. Immersion in larp

Croatian scene had grown and developed in that time - larp is getting into media a lot recently. Yesterday I was at a discussion in Booksa by the Croatian SF author, Aleksandar Žiljak - the guest was Ana Rajner, and many people were exposed to larp. I gave an interview to the Croatian national radio (together with some other larpers who were present) that should be on air somewhere March 12th (I guess I'll find out the details in the meanwhile). That's together with the TV special that will also get played, and the first Croatian larp convention PoRtaL in two days (by the way, program and sign-ups are up) which will also have media coverage.

The media has picked up on larp, and people are getting interested about what's possible - are we on a treshold of the explosion of larp population in Croatia and new interest in larp? Or is it already happening?

We'll know. Soon.

And now dear readers, like I did a hundred posts ago I'm gonna ask you for some feedback on this blog. Tell me what you like about it, what you don't, what you enjoy reading about and what would you enjoy reading about even more. Drop in to say hi.

The 15 rules of larp

The following 15 rules (warning: strong language) were written some years ago in Great Britain, and have been pretty much generally accepted on the British larp scene. Especially popular is rule 7 - widely known by its number and commonly considered to be the most imortant rule of all (and I agree). Even the biggest British larp forum has taken Rule7 as its name. The rules have been originally created by the Drunken Monkeys and edited by Rick Wynne who added some extra stuff in the explanations to make them more understandable to international audience (it still contains some British larp lingo though), more work-safe and to throw in his two cents. (copy of the original wording is available here ) 1. Don’t play a mighty warrior; play a warrior and be mighty. Don’t label your character. As soon as you say that you are the best swordsman in the land someone will come along and kick your ass. Just get into the mindset of the person and role-play it out. 2. No one cares about you

Mind's Eye Theatre: Werewolf The Apocalypse rulebook review

Available on DriveThruRPG Just under three years ago I wrote a review for  Mind’s Eye Theatre: Vampire the Masquerade rulebook . It was the first book published by By Nights Studio, and a year later I reviewed one of its supplements - Storyteller Secrets . Now, after a long period of work, after the success of their kickstarter campaign, By Night Studios finally released the full version of the new larp rules for Werewolf the Apocalypse setting. This was preceded by various alpha, beta, gamma, delta and omega slices - each containing a different playtest version of the rules, slowly released from September last year until July this year. First impressions were that the artwork is very cool, and that the book is HUGE. Numbering at 762 pages, that's over 200 pages more than Vampire the Masquerade. But before I start going in-depth, I'd like to mention that this blog's readers come from various backgrounds - and I'll adjust my review accordingly. I assume I'

Larps in EU

Today Croatia has acceeded into the European Union as its 28th state. EU has loads of diverse and different larp scenes and cultures in them. Some of them are local, some are national, some encompass all speakers of a certain language, some are regional, and some are world-famous. Here's a short window into a couple of EU larps and larp scenes, carefully selected and profiled by the criteria of "those I actually visited myself" and "those who bothered to answer my survey on facebook on a short notice", with a dash of "this is like elementary culture you should know". So this is not a full list - not even close - and not even the fully representative one, despite it being the largest post on this blog ever. Even keeping track of the Croatian scene is quite a job and there are still many language barriers around. But hopefully you'll find plenty of new and interesting material here. If you want your larp represented - whether it's battle
