The LARP Club is a small but growing recreational club based around the hobby of Live Action Role Play, or “LARP”. Much like a video game, LARP involves Cadets creating characters that they feel they can embody, designing and making a costume for that character and then stepping into that character’s role in a situation designed by the club’s president.
Characters range from knights to barbarians, each with unique abilities and traits. Cadets then have to either solve puzzles or combat enemies with safety-tested foam and latex weaponry to complete their challenges, all while staying in character – like improvisational acting set in a fantasy setting.
When not playing their characters, members can be seen either maintaining club property, discussing future investments for club equipment, creating new plots for their characters or playing board games and fantasy based card games.
