Two hundredth post!


Two hundred! We're at two hundred posts now! ...wow. 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 your character b…

These 10 Easy Steps Are All You Need To Start Larping!

"How to become a larper? How to start larping? Where do you begin? How to join a larp? How to prepare for your first event? How to gear up? What do I need to know for my first larp?" Etc.

These are all questions that people interested in larp ask all the time. And in over three years of writing this blog and over 350 posts on it, I just remembered I haven't written any decent advice for new and potential players. And that's why it's harder than it seems. Not preparing for your first larp, but writing about it. Different larps can be quite different, and can be even more confusing to existing larpers (used to another style) than to those who never larped before.

However, I decided to do it - and write a comprehensive guide about it, with a catchy Upworthy-style title that's sure to catch the attention, right? After all, it did catch yours. Below you will find a 10-step guide that will answer the most fundamental questions about larping that you might have.

World of Darkness Berlin and Enlightenment in Blood

How do I even start this article? Fair warning: it will be long (TL;DR - best larp experience of my life). It will be emotional. Sometimes rambling, or jumping from one subject to another. It will include both what took part on the con, before it, after it, and some of my own thoughts and reflections on it. And it will not include a lot of photos of the larp itself, because of the photo policy I signed.

Last weekend I took a part in World of Darkness Berlin convention - first of its' type in Europe. Unfortunately, it was in the same time slot as SFeraKon in Zagreb, but when you have an opportunity such as this - well, you don't miss it. The convention, most of it taking place in Mercure hotel MOA Berlin (with several events in other venues), had covered almost every possible expression of World of Darkness, it's licensees and IPs - tabletop role-play, larps, V:TES collectible card game, and more.


Let's be frank - if you're reading my blog, you're probably in f…
