Character play

What does the stuff mean that is written on the character sheet? Explain, especially to first-timers, how the character descriptions provide a framework but should not be seen as a corset. If needed, practice scenes in which participants first act as themselves, then try to act as their character. Possible scenes:

  • Job interview
  • Buying coffee in a hurry
  • MORE??

25 min


Briefly explain how the Attitudes work: A first guide to how they can put themselves in their characters’ shoes. Something can happen in the game that makes an optimistic character hesitate and vice versa. They can think of Attitudes as a safety net: If they don’t know exactly how to react in a situation, they can at least act aggressively or cautiously.

Ask everyone to read their secret missions or goals and think about how they would theoretically approach them. If there are questions, ask the players to talk to you individually.

1 x positiv, 1 x neutral, 1 x negativ über Karten… Das fand bei dem Exploria 1920er Larp Anwendung: Man hat ne Karte gezogen und hat sich dann paarweise eine Hintergrundgeschichte dazu ausgedacht (z.B. ihr kennt euch seit Schultagen oder so).

  1. Bei den Schlüsselszenen ist eigentlich noch viel Zeit für die Terraner*innen, da es da nicht so viel für sie zu proben gibt. Den Beziehungsworkshop dahin verlegen?
