My name is Anne Slot and I am a second year student at the Fontys in Eindhoven.

Very often during my study it is about communicating a message. Your target audience is very important. For the course 'research' I have to do research on a group of people with the same interest/passion in order to map out what this group of people have in common. I chose larp myself.

You would help me a lot if you would answer my main question:
When and how did you become interested in larp?

Thank you very much!
 
Screw it.
I was a young man in the late 90s who was playing dnd. One of the folks i was playing regularly with talked about his experience playing minds eye theater. I was interested in the mechanics and dnd was starting to bore me so i checked it out. Had fun and played for a while.

Hello Anne! Great topic and it'll be unique to most.

I heard from one of my D&D buddies about this thing called NERO in 1993. I lived in DFW (Texas) and decided to go out to their first event and observe. (Jan 1994), I played my first event in February with my team of 4. The system was easy to understand and we were all beginners so it was a simple transition.

I just recently started. I joined LARP after playing D&D for about 20 years with a group of friends. My now wife started with an ex of hers, but loved it and kept at it after they ended their relationship. This season was the first that we could play together so we went out in July to give it a go.

Hi Anne.

In 2013 a friend of mine told me about a new game that was supposed to be coming to the area I lived in at the time called Dystopia Rising. It sounded like a blast, and I quickly made a character and read into it learning as much as I could. In 2014 the game had failed to start up in my area. So I looked around for other larps and found one in Minnesota, a 4 hour drive from where I lived at the time. So I drove up to a game in February in Minnesota for my first taste and have been playing ever since.
