Fantasy larp in Greece.

Every now and then I'm struck with a moment of inspiration.

In my post from 3 years ago, detailing the existing organizations in the Balkans, http://basiclarp.blogspot.com/2012/12/all-quiet-on-easterneuropean-front.html

I mentioned the lack of any greek fantasy larp group. Last winter I went on another search with little luck, except for vampire/parlor larps. Needless to say, my opinion was that this was simply unacceptable. About a week went into exploring various DnD, RPG and fantasy sites and groups and the answer was always "No idea, try next doors.".

Finally I decided that we will make our own brand new larp organization. With blackjack! And hookers!

Volunteers and enthusiasts were gathered one by one from various places. Information and devious propaganda was used on industrial scale. Nobody knew where this ride would end, but one thing was certain - we were going places.


One blunder after another and finally, several months later, all the effort gave fruit.

Larp club of Greece was born!
Its still small(about 15 active members in Athens? Individuals in other cities), its very young, it has very little equipment, but its alive and kicking. The very first stage - getting boots on the ground was passed. Now all it takes is to grow, expand and be awesome.

Locals  now drive the project themselves and are putting decent effort.



With some luck, it will grow into a nice big larp community by the end of the summer.


I'd say a job well done. Once I find the time and motivation, I'm taking on Romania.

Bonsoir, and greetings from Canada. I am aware this is an older post, and am unsure whether you even maintain this blog anymore, but I was intrigued by the fact you simply put one together. Obviously not as easy a that, but I was looking to start a post apocalyptic LARP here on the West coast of Canada. I am, however, young and inexperienced. How would you suggest going about it? Note that I don't have any proper rules, so that may be a major roadblock. Anyhow, if you've read this, thanks for your time.
