In my 2017 episode Winning the Larp, I looked at the history of larps (live action role plays) and how the larping experience is different and deeply personal for each of the players. But I hadn’t done any larps myself. So this year, I delved deep into larping, where I discovered the thrill of stepping into someone else’s world, and the out-of-body experience of feeling emotions that aren’t yours.
