Getting Involved in the Exciting World of LARP

Maps and Immersion
I have always found maps beautiful. The colors, the lines, the stark contrast between land and sea, the strange shapes of the earth . . . but in a greater sense, knowing that what's represented are mi...

The plot surrounding her and her fan club is slow-moving, padded by...
