LARPs

LARPs, or Live Action Role-Playing Games, take your role-playing experience to the next level. Instead of sitting at tables and rolling dice, the game takes place all around you. LARPing combines traditional RPGs with elements of improvisational acting, where often you are given a character and told to “be them.” How you do that is up to you.

Because of the unique nature of LARPs, there are certain rules that must be followed for everyone to have a good time:

LARP Central is located between the entrances to California Salons 2 and 3. This area contains the complete set of rules mentioned above, as well as the current schedule, posted player lists, LARP flyers, LARP Lending Library, and any other pertinent announcements.

During the dance you’ll be able to hang with your friends, pick arguments with your frenemies, and moon over your crush, just like any other high school dance. But when your music is playing, you become the most powerful being on the dance floor-and maybe the entire gymnasium! At the end of the night, one of you will be elected Dance Monarch and enact a powerful ritual that can permanently change the world.

In Sign we will work together to develop our own sign language through play. This game is based on the history of Nicaraguan Sign Language. Nicaragua in the 1970s had no official form of sign language. In 1977, something happened. Fifty deaf children from across the country were brought together to a school in Managua. Without a shared language to express themselves, the children did something remarkable—they created one. In Sign, we follow a story inspired by that journey.
