    As someone considering LARP for the first time, it’s likely you’ll have heaps of questions – I know I certainly did! In fact, 10 years on and I still have heaps of questions (but shush, don’t tell anyone that).

    So with new players in mind, we decided to turn to the Lorien Trust Discussion Group over on Facebook to ask players what their top tips were for first timers, and we got masses of really helpful responses!

    In fact, we got so much input that we thought we’d collate everything together, so here it is, our crowd-sourced list, from actual players, of top tips to help you get the most from your first ever LARP event.

    Why Working Set-Up Is A Great Thing To Do & Why You Should Consider It

    Every Lorien Trust mainline event takes place at beautiful Locko Park in Derby and includes a set piece. Each of the four annual events is hosted by a different faction or the guilds, who are responsible for helping to make it all happen.

    Set pieces are essentially a big theatrical set which help to set the scene of each event and  are enjoyed and used by everyone attending.

    Set pieces can take many months of planning. As well as a plot-lead creative vision for the set piece, actually making it happen takes a variety of different skills as well as a lot of hard work.
