The Rhode Island Science Fiction Club
Members of the Galactic Council (otherwise known as RISFC members) participated in a LARP (Live Action Role Playing) session for our February meeting. Members were each assigned a character from different parts of the galaxy, with their own personalities, unique traits, and resources. RISFC members were able to role play, which included trading in 'commodities', helping a starving planet, and even a bit of scheming and espionage. Most LARP sessions involve wearing costumes, but since this was an introduction to the game, we settled for name tags. We followed the storyline on why a Race was almost wiped out by a terraforming device (turns out it was delivered to the wrong planet), and yes, there were lots of snacks too. Special thanks to RISFC Board member Dale Miller for putting this thing together; we had an awesome time!
