LARPing is a great way to get exercise, build friendships, and improve social and communication skills including problem-solving and the art of negotiation.
You’ll use creativity, imagination, and strategy for story writing, world-building, and character creation and development (including costume and prop design and construction).
Students will work together to create a world, build a storyline, and create characters complete with a backstory and costume. The class will end with a LARP in which students will act as characters who advance the storyline and to which friends, family, and PHS members will be invited.
$10 supplies fee covers basic costume and prop construction materials such as glue, tape, thread, pins, etc.
Students will want to source materials for costumes and props to enhance their own characters and the world we build together.
Students will spend some time at home working on fleshing out their characters and the storylines and hunting for materials to build costumes and props as well finishing work on those.
The storyline will be built out via Google Docs which students may choose to work on individually or together outside of class.
Our final LARP will happen in the Fellowship Hall on the last day of class.
