20 years of Turku

Apparently the Turku larp manifesto was 20 years old yesterday:

(Also check out the player’s “vow of chastity”, which sets out how they think people should actually play larps).

So, what do people think of it now?

It was a good prompt for me to move back towards more ‘truly’ living my characters - I’ve done too much ‘game management’ recently while playing, and reduced my immersion (and possibly that of those around me) by having things in my head like “what does (x) want as a player? Am I involving everyone?” This has lessened my own enjoyment more than it’s probably added to the game for other people.
I want to go back towards trusting the game, letting go, and living the roles.
