Who we are
Alleged Entertainment is a LARP writing group based in the Boston area. The group formed in 2003 to write the game Snaf University. Since then, Alleged Entertainment has written and run many more LARPs at universities, conventions, and anywhere else we can.
LARP? WTF is that?
LARP stands for Live Action Roleplaying. Think “Dungeons & Dragons” plus improv acting. Instead of telling the GM what their character is doing, players in a LARP actually take on the roles, costumes, and behaviors of their characters. LARPs can run anywhere from an hour to several years.
There are many different styles and genres of LARP. At Alleged Entertainment, we tend to write and run one-shot, theatre-style events. “One-shot” means that the game runs for a fixed period of time (anywhere from 2 hours to 10 days, usually) and is then over. The game can be run more than once, but usually players cannot play in it more than once. “Theatre-style” means that combat and similar actions are abstracted into cards, dice, or other mechanics instead of actually acting them out.
