In this 2 hour workshop, Kevin and Min Kreiner will walk you through writing your very own live action role-playing game (LARP).

Nothing brings people together more than a mystery and a little horror. You can assume a persona, dress up, and play out a scenario with a group of friends whether you’re near or far–what could be more fun! If you’ve ever wanted to be the master pulling the strings behind one of these games, this workshop is for you!

Over the course of this 2-hour workshop game design duo, Min and Kevin of Carcosa Creations will guide you through the process of outlining, writing, and running your own LARP.

LARPing, or Live Action Role Playing games, are a wonderful, flexible method of expression that allows you to explore the things that make us terrified in the dark.

WHAT TO EXPECT

Come and join us on June 5th for a workshop where you can learn the secrets to making a great horror LARP! Not a LARPer? That’s okay! Many of these tips can easily be applied to running a murder mystery, Call of Cthulhu, Dread, and other horror role playing games!

Where: Zoom

Recommended for adults and young adults/teens.

Drawing experience is not necessary–meaningful stories can be told with expressive stick figures and lettering!

Zines are a great way to get started creating stories and experimenting with comics. They allow us to use budget limitations to push the boundaries of what’s possible.

In this workshop, we’ll dig into the basic format of a zine, what a zine is, and use a series of writing prompts to help us plan a short story.

We will work with a period of writing, folding our own zines, sketching out, then drawing, and finally solidifying our story in 6 panels.

Materials needed to participate:
Paper
Scissors
Pen and pencil
