What we want from LARPs

Many things come to mind about what anyone would want from a LARP game and what they expect.  Some see it as the same as sitting at a table with friends over a TTRPG, and the social outlet of gaming that so many of us really love.  Some see LARPs as a Cosplay outlet to me more than just dressed up but really become the character they are dressed as.  Some use it to let the darker side bleed through in a safe and controlled setting where the character is the twisted or troubled soul and not the player.  In our World of Darkness games in most cases, you are the monster like a Vampire, and it is your choice what kind of monster you really are.  I will say we do have some limits as to how far one can go and somewhat a hold on what one should be able to say as this is to the best of our ability a safe place.

We are looking to have a good time regardless of what the LARP is or the setting, so I find it is best to try to make people happy with what they play, and I over the past 30 years have had the most joy in making others smile and have a good time.  I admit that few would have fun playing the kinds of characters I play to make that happen, but I feel that with the support of my group of Storytellers and repeat players, the stories we run are fun and welcome.  The Group that is AtSSG, are like-minded but we are not all the same, and it is that mashup of peoples that I find make the best kind of story for all.  While we are starting our fresh thanks to Covid-19, all of those on my team have many years of gaming and LARPing experience on multiple platforms and styles.

With time we plan to expand the who and what we are as AtSSG, and look forward to including all the best of the last 30 years of LARP and reenactment experience to bring you a game you want to play in over and over again.
