About the larp
Every Sunday, on a farm somewhere in the countryside, Feria has a special session, where all can relax and think about the one true God, and their place in the new world. Mediation and reflection are a big part of these sessions. All is well, and will be. No-one has any secrets for the others… or do they? And no-one will bring their outside problems to the sect, will they?
Content Warnings: Religion, cult, coercion.
Marcel Oerlemans: Avid larper since 1992, organizer since 1998. Moved from classic fantasy larps, to organizing interactive dramas, and abstract roleplays. Interested in finding/creating new ways of play. Always focused on human interaction. Scenarios, setting, persona, special effects: they’re all means to an end.
|Physical contact||Moderate contact; e.g. hugging, formal partner dancing|
|Romance and intimacy||Romantic themes but no player contact; e.g. discussion of romance, illicit glances|
|Conflict and violence||Shouting and other intimidating actions not involving contact|
|Communication style||Lots of speech|
|Characters||Characters are fully predesigned|
|Narrative control||Players have some influence over story, but there is basically a script or structure that they’re within|
|Transparency||There are predesigned secrets that players will have from each other|
|Representation level||The fictional space is pretty similar to the play space|
|Play culture||Players are individually trying to achieve goals, such that not all can succeed|
