This was an entertaining LARP that we enjoyed participating in. It was well organized and we had our character information well in advance of the event. It was a large group and I did struggle to interact with all of the other characters but the story was good and progressed throughout the event. It was entertaining and the DM was very friendly. Had it been a smaller group, it would have been a more manageable mystery to unravel.

There are a lot of variables involved in a larp that can make or break it. I have attended a few different types and this format seems to work the best. This particular event was a large murder mystery with about 20 suspects. Each suspect had a character information packet, provided ahead of time, that ranged from 20 to 40 pages. The backgrounds seemed like a bit much, but did a fairly good job crafting a tangled web of a he-said-she-said story of clue style mystery, while remaining light hearted and fun. The investigators, rather the rest of the players, received a number of lengthy police bulletins, that were read aloud, full of clues into the investigation. Ultimately, the end goal was to answer who, what, why of which our group of investigators was unable to accomplish. Awards were given out at the end for best costume, best roleplayer, and best one-liner. While we didn't win, we were still able to decipher large parts of the story and, as an investigator, I wrote something like 10 pages of notes during my suspect interviews. My only gripe was that 4 hours was a bit much for this type of event as you can tell as the game went on people started losing steam.
