  • A Mage and Changeling LARP near Barcelona Spain

    Hey everybody,

    I’m a German guy living in Barcelona. We dispose of a land house nearby with quite some land surrounding it. I am working as a therapist and I have always been intrigued by the cathartic effect of theatre. I also remember a boy scout camp when I was little, where we organized a fairy forest game in the woods with different stations where dressed up friends prepared challenges for the different groups passing by. Finally we all gathered in a torch lid clearing and had meal together. That memory is very magical to me. I also was introduced to PnP on a boy scout hike, so landscape and imagination have always been for me in a way interwoven.
    In my opinion the World of Darkness Systems are a great achievement that not only brings a literary dimension to RPGs but they also open up spaces of shared imagination that are grounded in existential human experience. I am especially interested in Changeling and Mage with their themes of trauma, abuse, escapism on one hand and in the case of Mage of platonic philosophy and creativity.
    I would love to hear from you, if you are interested in organizing with me a LARP event on our land centering around those systems.
    I think that we could provide a really fun experience and it would be so nice to get to know you people to bounce ideas back and forth with.

      Dude, thanks for your approval. At least you're living in the same country. I think it's viable to plan the whole thing via Skype and then meet a few days before the LARP at our place to prepare everything. I do think Rpgs in themselves are therapeutic because they give room for communication and self-expression. I also think that in the worst case a therapeutic rpg could be as unattractive as an educational video game. I want the whole experience to be about having fun, but maybe for that it also has to be gripping and meaningful.
