Play Roundtable 5: Spirituality and Transformational Role-playing

Moderated by: Jacob Bouvier

 

Featuring: Sarah Lynne Bowman, Alex Roberts, Harrison Greene, Ashleigh La Porta, Clio Yun-su Davis

 

Exploring spirituality and religion in larps can lead to deeply personal and transformative experiences for players who are willing to delve deep. While there are scenarios that pull from real world practices and others that focus on fictional traditions, common elements throughout include ritual work, interactions with deities, utilization of divination tools, spiritual symbology, prayer, and chanting. How can we connect with themes of divinity while approaching them responsibly and with respect?
