Guest Post: Brains, Brawn, and a Positive Envrionment Builds Powerful LARP Women

Kristin Brumley portrays her experiences, and the rise of the woman LARPer. 

I started college as a computer science major. I was literally the only woman student in the department, and beyond the first 101 level class I was the only woman in my major classes. At the time I was also a guild leader in vanilla WoW, a Magic: The Gathering player, and a World of Darkness tabletop player. I considered myself to be an avid gamer, and in almost all my activities I was predominantly surrounded by men. It wasn’t until I started LARPing in 2009 that I found a geeky hobby where women not only flourished—they were the people leading the group.

Out of all the geeky things I’m into, LARPing is—to me—one of the most woman-friendly.  Let’s face it. Women tend to be better at social situations and being social is essential to a LARP.  Women own LARP chapters, run games, write plotlines, play leading PCs (player-characters) and NPCs (non-player characters), exist in abundant numbers, and are some of the leading advocates for quality games in the world. The truth is, women LARPers are the leaders of LARP.  Just look at such women as LARP GirlStephanie TwilleyTaversia, and Sarah Bowman.

LARP women are a dangerous mix of high intelligence, creativity, and the willingness to live adventurously. While there are many women in other geek cultures who can boast brains—we LARPers have a regular lesson in confidence and crushing our self-doubt. We boast brains, brawn, and an environment that allows us to thrive. My own personal experience as a woman LARPer has been extremely positive. As a woman LARPer I have run games.

I’ve been a staff member and I’ve been invited to work on new game systems. I’ve played memorable characters. Larping.org hosts my own vlog about LARPing. I’ve started my own fictional webseries about LARPers called Basic Adventuring 101, which is the only LARP series out there produced, written and starring women LARPers, and it has just launched its second Kickstarter. These are not opportunities I readily had in MTG or WoW, and most of these came about because I have proven myself to be a hardworking and talented member of the LARP community. No one questions whether or not I’m good at LARP, and especially not because I’m a woman.

I showed up all alone to my very first LARP event and I was greeted by a group of people who wanted me to be involved—not because of my gender, but because this is a hobby filled with people who are passionate about sharing what they love.  And not only this, but I felt safe.  I was faced with goblins and monsters and thieves, but out-of-game I didn’t feel threatened or uncomfortable.  It was a good environment.  One where I felt in control.

That isn’t to say I’ve never felt unsafe at a LARP since then.  I have to be honest.  I’ve known women who have been raped at events.  There was one instance while I was at Conquest last year when I felt like the in-game and out-of-game lines had blurred and I was no longer certain if the obscene gestures and lewd, drunken words weren’t dangerously close to becoming actions. I’ve had creepy guys follow me around.  I’ve had guys fawn over me and go out of their way to give me magic items and protect me as though I couldn’t do it myself. Disrespecting and harming women, regardless of it being physical or emotional or sexual, is unacceptable. But I would still say that despite these rare instances, LARPing has given me the power to create characters that won’t stand for it.

Kristin—the real-life person—would not have handled those vulgar men at Conquest well. Iris—the character I was playing—could. Iris has seen and survived awful things, and when those men in Germany started harassing a younger, much smaller woman, Iris looked them in the eyes and didn’t allow them to make her feel small.  She removed herself and the other endangered woman from the situation in a way that was powerful and uncompromising.

I can’t say that if that happened in an everyday situation that I could do it without somehow channeling that part of myself. It’s a part of me that I only discovered because I LARP. I am 100% positive that LARP has changed me for the better. It has allowed me to experiment and to discover myself, and it’s become an essential social activity that helps me to fight my own depression and anxiety.

I’ve met some of my best friends and I’ve strengthened relationships through LARPing.  It’s helped me to become physically stronger and healthier than I’ve ever been in my adult life. And in the end, I hope that I can serve as an example for other women who are looking for a geeky hobby that will accept them with open arms.

We are breeding a whole new type of woman here: we are breeding the LARP woman. Hear us roar.

GUEST POST: Where do you begin?

So you have decided that you want to LARP, you want to take the plunge into the unknowing world of LARPing – but WHERE do you start?

 Our guest post writer Stephanie shares all….

My tips for getting started LARPing in 5 easy steps:

  • Join a community

Find your local LARP community and get involved. You can do this by either doing some online research to find a local group, or even try the local game shop!

Getting involved with the community getting to know the people before playing will make you feel much more comfortable playing with them and role playing will likely be a lot easier.

  • Find the game for you

There are an infinite number of different kinds of LARPs, so you can always find one that suits your fancy. If you are still a bit uneasy about the idea of role play with strangers, have no fear!

Luckily the cousin of LARP, Battle games, requires no role play and you can still dress up and have amazing battles!

  •  Learn the lore and in game rules

Before you can make a character and successfully interact in the world, it is best to learn a bit about the lore and the in game world. This will make creating your character much easier, because you can draw from the lore and in­game world history in order to come up with your own character’s history and story. Be sure to follow all game rules and safety regulations.

  • Create your character

For many people this is as simple as naming your character and deciding on their look. To have a well rounded character you should think of who they are, what they have done, and what they hope to accomplish in their lives. This will help you both create a backstory, and realize their motivations when role playing.  There are countless tutorials and tips online for creating your own cheap and amazing costume! Some popular ways to collect clothing and props is thrift shopping.

  • LARP and Have fun!

Now you are ready to LARP and have amazing adventures! Make sure not to forget that everyone is playing a character, so don’t take things that other characters say or do personally.

Remember not to take yourself too seriously, because LARP is a hobby and something to be enjoyed, not stressed over. Good luck  and safe LARPing!

 

WATCH: Have Mountainear just made larping cool?

Brand new London band Mountainear ooze cool. But the video for their debut single, Down the Line, features a down-and-out larper trying to navigate life in the capital.

Did Mountainear just make larping cool? I met Louise from the band, and larper Will, to find out.

AUDIO: LARPing Characters

 

Since embarking on our LARP adventure, the London Larpist team have met plenty of characters.

We’ve found that the most exciting part of LARPing is choosing a character to play. Here are some of our acquaintances describing their outfits and players.

DATA: So which LARP genre is the most popular?

The most exciting thing about LARP is that players have the potential to be whoever, or whatever they want! There are little or no limitations as to which character someone can choose. From elves to priests and goblins to ghosts, mostly anything goes.

But are most characters set due to graphical location and system genre? London Larpist has been researching and working hard to determine the most popular LARP genres and their location in the country. We also had a quick look into the most active event organisers just in case any on you London LARPers decided to venture out of the capital.

By LarpEvents.co.uk

By LarpEvents.co.uk

The map above shows popular LARP areas with Stoke-on-Trent appearing to have a very high LARP population. London looks sparse, but remember, not all systems are on this map. A small amount of personal research will enable you to locate your nearest system.

Systems throughout the country have different themes and genres. The pie chart below clearly shows how the High Fantasy LARP genre is the most popular.

Data from LarpEvents.co.uk

Data from LarpEvents.co.uk

Our results show that High Fantasy has by far the most events, with the most participants. This genre includes many of the favourite characters including both elves and goblins. But why is High Fantasy ahead of the rest? Popular television programmes and films such as Game of Thrones and Lord of The Rings appear to have influenced LARPers in the UK. BBC’s The One Show recently devoted a whole show to High Fantasy LARP, encouraging the audience to send in pictures of their costumes.

Modern LARP is second most popular and involves re-enacting modern battles with today’s weapons and clothing. Sci-Fi Larp is also moderately popular with characters similar to the cast of Star Trek and Star Wars.

POLL: A third of Londoners would consider larping

The methodology may be the kind which makes pollsters wake up in a cold sweat. But the results of the Larpist‘s poll on larping attitudes in the capital are in, and it’s official: 37 per cent of respondents would consider larping.

And – just saying – 20 per cent of non-larpers would find their partner’s revelation of secret larping to be a turn-on.

Read on, larpists…

Data collected via SurveyMonkey across two weeks in April 2014.

Actions speak louder than words…or do they?

Craig is a “published author of ‘macabre gothic fantasy’, and word-wrangling Steampunk uber-geek.” While he certainly writes a lot, he’s still yet to put his words to action….
“I still haven’t larped yet….”
I still haven’t Larped yet. I know, that sounds crazy when I’m writing an article for London Larpist. But my Larp cherry is still very much in tact. And that’s kind of the point. You see, I’m working on a new book called “How NOT to Larp”, and it’s the story of how I pop that aforementioned cherry on the field of battle.
Why that title? Because I’m expecting to be very bad at it. While the idea of Larp rocks my world to its very core (and I can’t wait to try on my larp clothes for the first time, swing my sword, utter a battlecry) I’m pretty sure I’m going to die with a complete lack of dignity and heroism. Orcs shall taste man-flesh and it shall be mine. Hopefully, it’ll be amusing enough that people will enjoy reading the story of a newbie from birth to an inevitably-swift death.
Before we even get to that part, there’s the learning to sword-fight, making my own armour, designing my character (Kish, of Cantiarch’s Hold whose enthusiasm is hindered by his ineptitude….so, basically me, then), and those parts I’m absolutely LOVING! Especially the armour making. My study is now a panorama of leather scraps and glistening tools. The ring of the hammer and muttered expletives as I cut/stab/hammer/burn/dye myself into a trip to A+E are heard far and wide!
And the closer I get to my first event (Empire on the 23rd of May), the more I can taste the fresh air, smell the sweat of my fellow warriors. Hopefully I’ll see some of you there.
Please spare a herb or two for the author bleeding out at your feet.

DATA: Online larpers prefer the good guys

Over 100 million people have played World of Warcraft, creating more than 500 million in-game characters over a period of ten years, according to recent data released by game developer Blizzard.

The stat-porn inspired the Larpist to do a bit of data-mining of its own – into the Warcraft-playing preferences of our European brethren.

Here in the world of live-action roleplay it’s easy to scoff at the troglodytes of the online roleplaying world. Why have dwarven cotton when you can have elvish silk, eh?

But really we’re not that different. Both larping and Warcraft involve assuming the identity of a fantasy character to take part in a game. And data collected from European Warcraft players over the past 30 days suggests that, despite the anonymity of online, people prefer to play as the good guys (the Alliance) rather than the bad eggs (the Horde).

All data courtesy of WarcraftRealms.com.

This data snapshot, taken from EU players over the past thirty days, confirms the trend published by Blizzard showing all-time Warcraft stats: players prefer the Alliance by 52% to the Horde’s 47%.

So why, given all the anonymity and potential for chaos that online anonymity affords players, do they continue to pick noble characters over evil ones? Is the desire to do justice preferred among larpers too?

Lizzie Stark, author of Leaving Mundania: Inside the Transformative World of Live Action Role Playing Games, tells the Larpist that it’s “because people are basically good.”

And, with a flourish of class, she quotes Mary Wollstonecraft: “No man chooses evil because it is evil; he only mistakes it for the happiness, the good he seeks.”
