I am larp organizer, originally from Slovakia, but making larps in Czech Republic. I am traveling through the South island and got an idea of contacting some local larpers, because honestly I have no idea how you larp around here. I will be passing through both Dunedin and Christchurch, I am very flexible, so I am sure we would be able to arrange a meeting if there is someone interested.
What kind of stuff have I done?
strepiny.larp.cz/en/index.html - post-apocalyptic. Sci-fi larp, trying to use a lot of technology
howlarp.cz/about/ - a Western larp, based on TV series Hell on Wheels, we had an international run last May
kmeny.larp.cz/kontakt-ohlasy/ - larp “Tribes”, focused on positive storytelling and rituals, unfortunately without English version of website, but there are at least a few pictures there
Plus some small games. If you would like to hear, what’s going on in the Czech Republic (and it is a very interesting scene), I am the guy for you. If you would like to hear more about European larp, I have a decent outlook on things, apart from boffer battles. And if you would like to share what’s going on around here, I would be very happy to listen.
All the best,
Ps: I hope that I haven’t missed “the big scene” by passing Wellington, it is starting to look like it a bit, but maybe you will prove me wrong
