TRPG Festival is an event for everyone interested in playing and designing role-playing games, ranging from table-talk RPGs to live-action role-play (larp).
I will give two presentations regarding larp, one at DiGRA 2019 and one at Replaying Japan 2019, both held at Ritsumeikan University in Kyoto.
Article on larp in Japan in the journal Replaying Japan (vol 1., 2019).
Talk about appropriations of anime-style illustrations and settings in English-language TRPGs at the Bristol-Kyoto Workshop “Deterritorialising Visual Theory and Culture through Anglo-Japanese Encounters,” Bristol University, 2016/07/26-27.
Talk on live action role-play and “bleed” (transfer of knowledge and emotions between character and player) at the Kyoto International Manga Museum (2016/06/18).
