Alex – LARPing since 1998 – was interviewed at NELCO 2013 and asked 3 questions:
1. How do you define and describe LARP?
2. Is LARP a game or art?
3. What makes a good LARP character?
Here are Alex’s off-the-cuff answers, including the difference between acting and Roleplaying, and how lessons from theater and literature can help make an engaging LARP character.
This is part 5 of 12 for the NELCO 2013 “In the Chair” series – one on one interviews with LARP players and creators. Their compiled answers, question by question are available from the original NELCO 2013 Series post, along with a list of the other LARPer interviews from NELCO 2013
