LASCIVIO EST RES

The Live Adventures Company invites you to join some of the biggest stars in film and television (and thousands of fans who worship them), as they honor the best Live Action Role Playing (LARP) participants in the world, at the 1st ANNUAL LARPY AWARDS. The LARPY AWARDS will be held at the legendary Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles, California on Saturday, April 29th, 2006.

Created by The Live Adventures Company President Joseph Valenti and writer-producer David Ballard, the LARPY AWARDS, aka the LARPIES, were created to honor the world’s best LARPers and to celebrate the Sci-Fi and fantasy films, TV series, videogames, card games and books that inspire all of us to make the world a better place through the power of creativity and imagination.

LARP events most often take place over a weekend at campground-like facilities that are decorated like movie sets to resemble a medieval city or other fantasy world. Writers act as the “Game Masters” who’ve created storylines with mysteries to be solved and tasks to be completed. They provide the direction for “Event Actors” who interact with the LARPers, guiding them through the storyline and giving them hints and clues to the mysteries.  Hundreds (and sometimes thousands) of participants come dressed in homemade costumes, bearing foam-rubber weapons based on parameters set forth in the game rules, to play what is essentially a “real-life” videogame, TV show or movie.  Most LARP organizations, Sci Fi, Anime and Costume Play (Cosplay) conventions have an internal award program that recognizes the “best-of” among the event attendees.

The LARPIES will present awards to recognize the “best-of” in the LARP and Cosplay communities, in the following categories:  Best Solo Action Sequence, Best Group Action Sequence, Best Costume, Best Makeup, Best Creature and/or Monster, Best Prop, Best Weapon, Best Set Design, Funniest LARP Scenario, Best-Looking Male LARPer, Best-Looking Female LARPer, Favorite Major Label Band and Favorite Unsigned LARP-related Band.

William Shatner

 

This year we are expecting over 10,000 attendees, most of whom will come dressed in their finest costumes.  There will be a LARP “mini-convention” before the show, and a red carpet greeting ceremony for the invited celebrity hosts, including GEORGE LUCAS, PETER JACKSON, JACK BLACK, JESSICA ALBA, ELIJAH WOOD, WILLIAM SHATNER, LEONARD NIMOY and SCARLET JOHANSSON, as well as other cast members from such hit films and TV series as STAR WARS, LORD OF THE RINGS, THE MATRIX, STAR TREK, HERCULES, XENA and many more.
