Live Action Role Play, or LARP, can encompass anything you can think of. It could revolve around reality or fantasy, or blend both together.
Sometime around the year 2000 we went to our first game at Labyrinthe and since then we have both played and monstered in a variety of systems and genres ranging from low fantasy to Science Fiction / Conspiracy.
For those not used to it, LARP is role-playing with a difference. Instead of verbally describing your actions (while sitting at a table) you physically do it... If you can't role-play what you want to do, and the system doesn't have a way round this, then it doesn't happen.
That's not to say that imagination isn't important. In fact there are still many things in role-playing that can't be replicated in real life easily.... Magic for example. So there are certain rules in place, and a little imagination is still required, but for most systems you will still have to do what your character would. For example spell casters must learn verbals and sometimes gestures, and in combat whilst rules can change how much people are effected by your damage, if you can't hit someone with your sword they don't get damaged... it's that simple.
Seaxe & Sorcery have in the past been involved in a number of commercial systems, outside of our own games, including:

Seaxe and Sorcery is an Essex based Live Action Role Play (LARP) group that has table-top role play at its heart. If you want to escape the mundane life of reality come and save Albion (again!) alongside the other heroes of Essex. Whether you fancy being an Elf, Orc, Goblin, Human or Dwarf you are welcome and quite probably invaluable!
Seaxe and Sorcery runs as a non-profit organisation so we can keep our prices very low. We are also extremely family-orientated and children of all ages are welcome (children under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a responsible adult, and is their responsibility during the events). Food is included in the price and the site has a toilet and shower block for our use.
If jumping in to the LARP is too scarey for you try our Monday night table top role play sessions in East Tilbury. The emphasis here is on imagination and interaction. Your first night is free and you do not need to bring anything to have a try!
There's just one last thing to say: Welcome to the world of Seaxe and Sorcery - have a look around and join the forum to ask questions!
