|A Fairy named Persia|
Alright boys(and girls), here is somthing I'm toying with.
As larpers we take on a character and we try to act out that character in the RP world. In many Role play games, expectantly games like D&D you have to make a character background first, this is not just a bio such as how you came to be but it also includes notes on your personality and your characters strengths and weaknesses.
This not only serves to give your character more depth but it also serves as a guide line, or a script, for how you want your character to act. When you go on the field you get into character, you talk different, how you see people is different, who you know is different.
Lets give an example from our normal games:
I'm an orc, I go to the tavern and ask for food, the paladin,who it does not behoove to interact with such a...questionable race..as my self, refuses to serve me and tells me to go some where else.
That is role play!
One of the issues for many new larpers is creating their character's prosona. Consider making a character sheet, with bullet points on how you should interact and how you take stances on issues and how your character would handle diffrent situations! This way when you come into a situation you have not met before you just go, WWMCD, what would my character do?
always keep that in mind! don't act how you would act, act like your character!
I'm an orc, I don't really care about money, its just a means to an end, I don't like anyone not of my race and even my fellow orc's I am still constantly trying to out do and gain dominance.
So when I'm playing I have to keep this in mind, these are just some of my characters prosona, I'm not supposed to get along with others and that will make my character an outcast. when you chose your character and your race make sure you think out HOW that will change your interactions and who will be your freinds.
Elves are not just humans with pointie ears, so don't act like it! If your an elve try to play up that character by being ruthless, snide, egotistical and think of all the other races as "lower". you work within the system because you have to but you know your way better than everyone else because your 300 years old and don't give a flip anymore.
If that's not your style, try to be more like a wood elf! be kind and logically empathetic!
Of course these are only two examples of how to play an elf but they are generalizations of the typical Elf, put your own spin on it, but don't just put on pointy ears and act like a normal human mercenary.
alright, good luck and have fun!
