Just like theater!

Prepping for a LARP (at least as a Storyteller) is a LOT like prepping for a theater show!

    I ran a LARP for a couple years and the amount of work can be absolutely monumental; the panicky running around just before game is on point.

    I suspect that there probably are LARPS that involve or at least allow nudity, but I’m not going looking.

    So in pictures, this tells us, that the dog (Mark) is handed over from an old friend to a new owner?
    He literally gets i to new territory. This might become interessting.
    Great story arc so far!

    I get the distinct feeling that Damien swings every which way, and might make Mark blush a good bit more before the night is done.

    Ravenia’s boy toy actually just described EVERY opening night performance I”ve ever done since I got involved in community theater.

    I did burlesque for about 2 or 3 years before my back went out on me… His description of the pre-show bit is really accurate.

  10. Naked LARP is a thing, though. And it’s not a pretty sight… 😉

    Ha, I knew Ravenia would have told Damien all about Mark. 🙂
    I get the impression he is a bit like a male Ravenia.

    yup, i´m totally getting slashy vibes here….mark would be *so* unable to deal when damien with his velvety voice starts flirting with him – not that he would notice right away, oh no, not mr oblivious! i can see them getting along well, maybe hanging out while rav is on a date with dustin, until the day that someone points out that he´s been all but dating the guy for weeks now already. cue EPIC FREAKOUT 😉

    Hmm… I want to watch a little longer, till I get a better grip on Damiens character, but for now i suspect him to like Mark and also Dustin. And i mean Sympathy, not love, at least not at this point.

    Regarding the shippers, I would like to remind you of the little encounter Mark had with Victor before the latter started to play Euphemios. I think that ship is sunken before it even leaves the dock.

    And regarding naked LARP: I never played in a 18+ LARP of that style, but I heard some storys. And from what I heard, I would not recommend it. LARPing with to much deliberate sexuality and open nudity tends to miss the point of LARP, as far is I perceived from what I heard. If someone is into that type of thing, then topless bars and swinger clubs provide what is sought after with the necessary safety measures. May be the better choice.

    I was at a LARP recently. A player was in-character topless. OOC, she just had a tag labeled ‘topless’ on.

    I’m impressed that Ravenia can juggle three romantic relationships, specially now knowing that one of them is a “primary”. Dustin seems like an extremely chill low-maintenance guy, but Mark is a bit less so, and it does seem like he’s not getting enough “get to know you time”. I hope things pick up from now on though.

    Hmm…
    I’m getting flashbacks to a lot of relationships I’ve seen around.

    And in regards to naked LARP? I’ve been in a few. Not in the slightest sexually oriented. They do allow stage/theatre sexual content, but those are required to be performed clothes shielding genitals.
    For obvious reasons. Mostly, it’s hella weird.
