About the larp
De Martos family owns an important Pharma lab. They are part of the Spanish high society, an example of social and economical success.
All of them have received a call tonight, Luis de Martos, the father, has suffered a heart attack and he is gravely ill.
Father is a family drama in a world anything is like it seems.
Content Warnings: Emotional or physical violence within the family; abuse.
Esperanza Montero (ES): I am a 41 year old Spanish singer and LGBTQ activist that have a boring real life in sales in startups. I’ve written larps with social content in the context of “larptivism” about abusive relations, LGBT-phobia, feminism, HIV or different love models. I’ve designed and coordinated international larps as Conscience, Blue Flame, Silver Lining, Red Center and No Middle Ground.
|Communication style||Lots of speech|
|Characters||Characters are fully predesigned|
|Narrative control||The shape and direction of the story is entirely, or almost entirely, determined by player choice|
|Transparency||There are predesigned secrets the organizers have from the players, and also that the players will have from each other|
|Representation level||The fictional space looks very unlike the play space, but players will use their imaginations|
|Play culture||The concept of rivalry or cooperation between players doesn’t really apply|
