A teacher who works at a school I just had placement at has emailed me the following:
"[Mentor teacher] has passed on your email to me as I’m just about to kick off a BoxWars class at school and am keen to run it like a LARP event with students designing and making their own costume/weapons from cardboard. At this stage I’m keen for the class to come up with a genre and them work to create their own avatar’s, with race and classes etc, but still exploring ideas for how the system might play out in general.
I’m making contact as I’ve no experience with LARP and wondered whether you might have some suggestions/ advice that might help (for example wondering if there is a generic game play that would be easy for a beginner like me!)"
I have zero functional knowledge about LARP of this type, but I know a lot of you do! Any advice for this dude would be greatly appreciated, and I’ll pass it on to him via email. The kids in question will likely be years 7-10 and I doubt there would be more than 10 of them at maximum.
