The Live Adventures Company has operated Live Adventure™ events at campgrounds and game conventions since 1989. With nearly 50 franchises across North America operating more than 225 weekend-long events in 2005, we are the premier Live Action Role Playing (LARP) company in the world today.
Live Adventure™ events most often take place at campground-like facilities that are decorated like movie sets to look like a fantasy medieval city. Writers (also called “Game Masters”) create mysteries that must be solved, and storylines with tasks to be completed.
Event Actors lead each storyline while interacting with the players, giving them hints and clues to the mysteries. Players create a fantasy character based on LARP game rules, dress up in medieval clothing, and interact with other players and the Event Actors. They take it upon themselves to complete the quests and tasks presented by putting the hints and clues together, thus getting a chance to become the Hero or Heroine for the weekend.
The LARPY Award categories are based on videos submitted by members of the LARP community, with categories including Best Props, Best Costumes, Best Make-up, Best Set Design, Best-Looking Male and Female LARPers, Favorite Major Label Band and Favorite Unsigned LARP-related Band. (A photo gallery of current LARPY entries is also available for viewing on the www.larpyawards.com website.)
The LARPIES will take place on May 2007 at the Venue to be Announced in Los Angeles, CA, and will feature as presenters upcoming and veteran actors who have become known for their distinctive roles in sci fi and fantasy films and support of the LARP and Cosplay industry..
Please feel free to call or e-mail me directly to arrange an interview, or for more information about becoming a corporate sponsor of LARPIES.
