I think we should have a sticky post in the NZLARPS forum that explains what NZLARPS is and why people might like to join.
Here’s a first draft:
The New Zealand Live Action Role Playing society is a non-profit organisation. It was started by kiwi larpers as a way to pool our resources, to help each other out and to promote larp in New Zealand. It has been very successful in gathering a huge quantity of gear for larps to use, assisting people to run larps without having to front up any money themselves, and providing services to larpers around the country. The society also runs this forum, Diatribe, which is an online community for kiwi larpers.
For more information about the society, visit the NZLARPS website.
If you’re into larp, but aren’t a society member yet, we strongly urge you to join. Being a member gives you a say in how the society promotes larp, and the opportunity to run larps with the financial and logistical support of NZLARPS. The annual membership fee is small, and you’ll quickly make it back in discounts.
For instructions on how to join, visit our membership page.
As a member you can vote in annual elections for the national committee, and also for your local committee. We currently have local committees in Auckland and Wellington, and a representative in Hamilton, and more local branches will be opened as we expand. You could even become a local representative for your town, and store local society equipment on behalf of NZLARPS.
In addition to members running larp projects through NZLARPS, a number of individuals and organisations are associated with the society as affiliates. Each affiliate of NZLARPS has a unique arrangement with the society, often offering benefits to society members in exchange for publicity.
For more information about affiliates, visit our affiliates page.
If you wish to contact the society about a matter concerning the society as a whole, your first point of contact is the president of the national committee. For local matters, contact a local committee director or representative.

NZLARPS is a real asset to the New Zealand larping community, and we hope you’re keen to join up!
