Larp documentation

Here you will find articles about larps that I have documented.

I have a short list on incentives for why I am doing larp documentation.

2) Document larps for the good of the community for reference and historical tradition
3) Encouraging others to do the same

The result was an intense 36-hour experience with participants from all over Europe.
