Who owns the ideas we come up with for larps? I’m not talking about intellectual property, but “the court of the community”. How much can you be inspired? How much is ok to copy? This is what I spend 12 minutes rambling about today
Some reflections on what to do with a cancelled larp, based on what we’re doing with my cancelled larp project “Sweet Home Alabama”.

Trains are wonderful larp locations. Why don’t we use them more?
In this short talk, I rant about how easy it is to fall into the trap of “Could it better?” instead of just getting things done.
More and more of us are working with larp professionally, yet we don’t have a conference for larp professionals. That’s why we’re making one!

One of the most interesting ressources available online, the Nordic Larp Talks (www.nordiclarptalks.org) are a collection of short talks on larp by international experts. Damn interesting, and 100% free!
During A Week in Norway, I recorded this short podcast on the importance of social events (while attending one, it must be said). The background cast includes both Germans, French(wo)men and Norwegians.
