From the Introduction:
What you have in your hand is all the Larp Factory larpscripts we were able to fit into a book. You also can find supporting material - including game materials such as character sheets and hand outs, as well as video of all the workshop and meta-techniques used - on the supporting website larpsfromthefactory.com.
The Larp Factory games are based on a philosophy that they should be easy to participate in. This means that they are relatively short - between three and eight hours - and that they demand no preparations from the players. This doesn't mean that you can't let your players prepare, but it should be possible to sign up the same day and have an equally good experience. Traditionally, these games have been quite cheap for the participants, as only a few require extensive scenography and props.
Although they are easy to participate in, they are not necessarily easy to run. In the fact box of each larp you can see the level of difficulty, from very easy games that you can run right here right now with the people on hand, to logistically difficult scenarios that require extensive scenography and lighting.
How to use this book
The larpscripts in the book - and the videos - and cheat sheets on the web page are designed to make it as easy as possible for you to run the workshops, games and debriefs.
The larpscripts explain the premise of each game and how to run it. Each script contains an introduction and fact box to help you decide whether this is the right game for you.
The larpscripts are designed to be used in conjunction with the website.
