Live action role playing
Imagine jumping into your favourite historical or fictional setting and becoming part of the story as it unfolds. Unlike watching a film or reading a book, you have a chance to shape the outcome of the story in amazing ways. Achieve your character's goals, defeat your enemies and help create a living fictional world.
If that sounds like fun then live action role playing (larp) is the hobby for you.
Larp has everything: from fantastic costumes and dramatic intrigue, to tricky problem solving and action-packed fights, all wrapped up in a dynamic, creative community. Similar to theatre or improv, participants react to the actions of other players, often with startling or humorous results. Larping is an all-inclusive activity where new participants are welcomed and helped every step of the way.
What is NZLARPS?
The New Zealand Live Action Role Playing Society Inc is a non-profit organisation that supports larp in New Zealand.
If you're new to larp in New Zealand, then a good place to start your reading is our guide to kiwi larp. It has details of all the active larps we know about, with photos to show what the larps look like in play.
Become a member: Being a member gives you discounts on all the society's larps, and some affiliates also offer discounts to members. You pay a small fee and send us your contact details to join. Visit the Membership page and get hooked up with some larping goodness.
Run a project: We want to give you support and lend you money and equipment to help run your dream larp. Go to the Projects page to read about running projects with the society.
Become an affiliate: Does your organisation have something to do with larp? Go to the Affiliates page to see what sort of mutual benefits we can offer each other.
Annual General Meetings for each of the regional branches and the National AGM were held in September 2012. The new committee members can be viewed on the Contact Us page.
Thanks to a $5000 grant from the Lion Foundation we have purchased an enclosed trailor, for getting all our gear to events.
The society has also purchased an A4 laser printer that can print duplex A5 booklets. We are offering cheap printing as a service to all projects and affiliates. For the moment only black & white printing is available, but colour will be available later.
