What does LARP stand for?

Live action role-playing

LARP stands for Live Action Role-Playing and it’s a type of role-playing game that people play in real life. People get together, dress up in costumes and pretend to be characters from a fantasy world.

Imagine a group of friends dressing up and acting as characters from a story that they’ve all agreed upon. It’s a bit like an improv class, where everyone has their own character and they have to react to what others are doing in the story.

These LARP groups can be small, with just a few people, or they can be massive, with hundreds or even thousands of people. The story they’re acting out can take a few hours, or it might go on for days.

So, when someone is talking about LARP or larping, they’re talking about dressing up and acting out a fantasy story with a group of people. It’s a fun way to spend time with friends and escape into a different world for a little while.
