What is LARP?

LARP or Live Action Role Playing Games are a form of collective storytelling in which participants physically portray alternative personas or characters. Unlike acting, the story's outcome is generally not firmly fixed; alternative endings, novel solutions and even failure are possible.


What is Altera?

Altera Awakens is a fantasy "boffer" LARP set on a fictional continent named called Altera. Altera is roughly equivalent to Earth's late Middle Ages. While many aspects of its civilization and cultures are reminiscent of Earth, there are also many important differences.
