LARP (Live Action Role Play) w. Alex Perl

Ep. 92

Alex Perl is here to explain what Live Action Role Playing, or LARPing, is!

We discuss how one could get into LARPing, what sessions look like, and what goes into character development. We talk about how the (Edmonton) LARPing community addresses issues of access and expectations. Alex explains what makes for effective storytelling in a LARP and how playing to uplift can be a key for success.

Be sure to check out Chronicle LARP’s end-of-May event if you’re Alberta local, otherwise be sure to find your local LARP crew and see what they have going on!

48 – Dungeon Mastering w. Brayden Scobie

Fellow Collective Legacy member Brayden Scobie joins us to talk about his time as a Dungeon Master for games like D&D/Pathfinder.

We talk about what got us into fantasy, role-playing, and table-top games; we discuss the mechanics of a D&D session from the player and the DM’s point of view; we explore how Brayden manages collective storytelling, while also maintaining a rewarding gaming experience.

If you’d like to hear more from Brayden make sure to listen to the Fanimorphs: The Dork-Bajir Chronicles podcast, or visit him in the real world at Hexagon Cafe for some IRL DM’ing.
