Legacies LARP | Print Directions - A Message to Parents/Guardians:

If your 16 or 17 year old is introducing you to Legacies for the first time by showing you this waiver you probably have some questions about what Legacies is. Legacies is a Fantasy themed LARP - essentially a large game of make believe where every participant has agreed on the same setting for their imagination and rules to play by. Our game setting is fantastical, with wizards and warriors, heroes and villians, and a variety of races such as dwarves and goblins. Each player assumes a persona of a character that they have created, and pretends to act out actions as well as social interactions with other players as if they were that character. Legacies does have simulated combat between characters using safe foam weapon props, as well as bird seed packets similar to bean bags. Every event every single foam weapon from every player is checked and verified to be be safe from defect that would noticably impare its safe use. Despite the presence of combat the game is primarily a social experience with the majority of the event composing interactions between characters all living in the same setting. Our setting does have mature themes such as friendship, loss, exploration of imaginary faiths, and morality. The game facilitates exploration of complex real world concepts through imaginary scenarios while maintaining careful seperation from the player's real world beliefs. Legacies strongly reinforces that the content of the game is imaginary and that there is a strong distinction between content such as the various faiths of the imaginary game world and faiths of real life, a distinction that should be maintained in either direction.

While the themes of Legacies can be mature, certain mature behavior is strictly prevented. Alcohol and drugs may never be brought to game, and should a player violate that rule they will be escorted off the game site and prevented from future attendence. Depending on the legality of the substance law enforcement may also be contacted. Similarly, while the social nature of the game has introduced several players to their significant others in real life, sexual intercourse of any form is not allowed at game. Finally, the only weapons that may be brought to game are the verified safe foam and latex prop weapons; any player bringing a real weapon to a game will forced to leave.

If parents/guardians have more questions about the game, as the content here is brief, they are encouraged strongly to explore the Legacies website (http://www.legacieslarp.org) where there is much greater detail, including a rulebook and a description of the imaginary game setting and an introductions for new players which contains content specifically for curious parents.
