Design Roundtable 15: Modern American Boffer: Evolution Beyond the Tabletop

Moderated by: Nathan Black

 

Featuring: Frisco Cruise, Brodie Atwater, Jeramy Merritt, Samara Hayley Steele

 

While many traditional boffer larp campaigns are still going strong, some designers seek to innovate the form in a more radical fashion. This roundtable will discuss how to create systems for long-term character growth that reduce the problems of indefinite growth, the lack of characterization in mechanics, and the expansion outside of standard combat mechanics (“difference in kind”).
