Larp report in today's iQ magazin!

On the pages 56-59 of the new, 12th issue of the Večernji list's tech magazine called iQ magazin there's a large article featuring larps written by Danijel Lijović.

I have mentioned this in my recent article, and now it's finally here, in print and available at all local kiosks at the reasonable price of 9,90 kn. Article is available in print, not online (online you'll only find this announcement) so go and buy it, display it, show it to your friends, family and neighbors and save it for your grandchildren.

Featuring a selection of five local larp campaigns (Camarilla Agram, Elder Scrolls Chronicles, Terra Nova, Rajski Vrhovi and Star Wars) and with some exclusive photos taken on Camarilla Agram 5, the article is quite comprehensive. It has a few parts which got overly edited and some typos (like mentioning inversion instead of immersion), but overall it's a very cool article, because the journalist larps with us on Camarilla Agram (which got the most love in the article) instead of simply making a report about something they haven't experienced. (The lesson here being: if you're a journalist, go and larp, it's good for you)

The article has pretty good descriptions of what larping is, many good looking photos from various Croatian larps, and has some helpful advice (and links) for those interested in starting in several larp styles. Overall, I'd say it's one of the best and most comprehensive media portrayals of larp that we had in Croatia, not only in printed media but in any Croatian mass media.

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
