What is Fanwar LARP?
In Live Action Role Playing (LARP), players pretend to be someone else, living in a different time or place, and acting out events that might happen in that world.
Many of these games involve battles, and so LARPers use safe, padded props that look like weapons to act out the combat. Unlike in a play where everyone has certain lines to say and the story is set, in LARP, the players each act out a certain person and make their own decisions for that person as the game evolves.
Live Action Role Playing is a combination of sports, drama, and table-top role playing games. It has many forms and settings all over the world, and has been a popular pastime for kids and adults for generations. Every child who plays at pretend has done LARP, although they didn’t know they were doing it. We are not the creators of LARP, but rather, those keeping the tradition of imaginative play alive in our culture.
Our LARP is specifically medieval fantasy based, with swords, spells, and dragons, but many other settings exist with other LARP groups and players. We have created a set of rules to keep everyone playing safely, fairly, and focused. That is what the FanWar LARP Rule Book is for. Our game has been continuously added onto by all the players, so that over time it has stayed fresh and exciting. The game world we use has also been affected by hundreds of players over time, so when you step into our story, you are entering a long history of adventures, mysteries and battles!
All the steps to learning to play the game have been clearly organized for you in this book, from the simplest and most important in the front, to the very complex and rare in the back. The book is broken up into chapters based on how complex of a game you are involved in. Simple battles can be done using just the first Chapters.
More complex stories can be told using character creation rules, and the most complex of adventures can be taken on using the entire set.
Welcome to our game. We love what we do, and hope you enjoy it as well.
Students should arrive at LARP Camp with clothing they can move in, closed-toed shoes that they can run in, a lunch, sunscreen, and a water bottle. Additional suggestions for items may arise at the time of the camp, and campers will be notified as things change.
