The third chamber larp mini festival – The Strings

This is a fragment of an article from old blog. It was modified during the transformation of this website.

I’ve spend this weekend taking pictures at a larp festival in Prague. The name suggests its size – it’s small, but it has a big potential. I even dare to say that they’re preparing the future, because it’s mostly about beta testing and player performance and their feedback is what is shaping the future of these chamber larps.

I personally was pretty surprised. It’s true that some of them need a bit of fine tuning, but still from the point of view of a visitor – it wasn’t bad. Ok, from photography point of view, it was sometimes too static, sitting around the table all of the time and just talking, but that’s for me as a photographer, players can have different opinions.

The Strings – This is the world where everyone is a puppet. Everyone hangs on strings that influence his whole life. How does dying feel, how does an ordinary meeting look, when your strings can become tangled? Last moment of life of the city’s figurehead are witnessed by his family, according to the plan, but also a few city representatives came uninvited. Everyone wants a piece of her power and property. Who will be the one who will get her place and estate?
