Simulation/ LARP

 

Live Action Role Play is a narrative game in which the players pursue their characters’ goals within a fictional setting presented by the real world. Content is thus conveyed as embodied knowledge and stored as a personal memory. This way LARP is like a real-life laboratory for thought experiments in temporary realities.
