Hello glorious creatures :3
I suppose I am here for the LARP element, so I will expand on this:
I am one of the people who established Fantasy LARP in Athens 5 years ago, and since then I have been organizing, participating, travelling and presenting LARP in a vast amount of places and conditions. My biggest project is “LARP Project: Athens”, which I co-organize, but currently I am focused on “Kult: Divinity Lost, Athens”, a new community project, based on an occult-noir RPG, that features a world-wide mythology, a “reality layering” (re-magificating things/places/people that appear common), and a custom flexible system for urban events. (after a month, we locked the community at 35 people, and we have organized two seances, a by-the-sea event next to an abandoned church and five demos, it has been a productive month :3 )
I generally enjoy White Wolf’s/Paradox/Onyx Path games. I love what they are doing with reality, and how they take exhausted subjects and revivify them in a way that can produce an amazing amount of stories. Specifically, I love Changeling: the Lost (for it’s storytelling potential), Dark Ages Fae (for it’s storytelling potential), Wraith: The Oblivion (for not shying against such a deep subject, and providing an amazing result), most Vampires - Requiem and Masquerade - (for teaching you how to see yourself as a part of human history), and Mage: The Awakening (for being such an amazing work of art).
I like charged locales. I am a firm believer that each place holds it’s own energies/even personality. It’s what the Latins called “Genius Loci”. They are, generally, everywhere but if I had to pick one, I would choose “Dimos Sxistou” (Αρχαίος Δήμος Σχιστού), a hidden valley in the middle of Athens.
Nice meeting you all ^^
