From The Preface: This is the part of the book where we try to explore the different ways larping is encouraging us to examine and challenge our own, personal and automatic preconceptions and habits. We do not exist in a vacuum, and neither do our larps. How do we perceive the world? How do we perceive ourselves? What might our larps tell about us, and what kinds of repercussions can they have?
In addition to the articles, we wanted the book to reflect other methods of expressing the diverse ways larping might affect us. Therefore, we have included poems submitted by you – both for inspiration and reflection – and we hope that you will enjoy these beautiful contributions as much as we do.
