Experiment Success

Today I tried a variant in my LARP running style...Basically running the LARP as a live action tabletop session. Normally I'd set up an ecosystem of play, and let the players make deals with one another, or throw twists into the session to keep everyone on their toes; but this time I basically split the group into two halves, with one group running PCs who ran through a linear quest of 8 scenes while the other half played NPCs for them... then after lunch switched everyone around.

For a group of a dozen players, this worked well and I'll certainly do it again.

I don't think the game should regularly shift to this format, but for one off special events, it makes a nice change of pace.
