Treasure Trapped is finally going to be available for your home viewing pleasure. If you’ve lived under a rock, or are new to the larp community (welcome!), then this film is a must see and a perfect stocking stuffer for the larper on your list.

Here at Larping.org we’ve been covering this film from it’s infancy in a Kickstarter campaign, to it’s World Wide Crazy Ass Viral success shooting the College of Wizardry Documentary, to finally showing the film in Seattle and meeting their team in person, we’ve been along for the ride the whole time (yes I know that’s a run-on sentence).

I’ve watched the entire film at least three times, and skimmed past clips of it lots more than that (thanks press screener!) and I can’t get enough of it. I already bought my copy and can’t wait to get some more swag, and my hands on a shiny new dvd of the film. Sorry family, we’re having a very larpy Christmas Day when I gift this to one of you…

As of the writing of this post they only have $2,000+, and that’s despicable, because this film is amazing and you should all own a copy. Like in the future other larpers will judge you, in a fun non-asshole way, on whether you proudly display this as one of the last DVDs you ever bought.  Let’s blow the success of this film sky high and help them get over $10,000 in the last few days of the campaign.

Go here and get yourself a copy asap! https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/cosmicjoke/treasure-trapped-on-dvd-and-bluray

After a year of theatrical touring, the indie LARP documentary is coming to home viewing!

Returning once again to the platform that launched the film three years ago, Manchester’s Cosmic Joke are running a Kickstarter campaign for pre­orders of the Treasure Trapped DVD

and BluRay.

For those that don’t know, Treasure Trapped is a documentary that explores the curious hobby of Live Action Role Play, a film that saw three British filmmakers on a whirlwind ride around Europe discovering what happens when you take pretending to a whole new level. Critics have described the film as ‘an amusing experience that informs and educates’ and ‘ a solid offering that does LARP proud.’ The filmmakers themselves have described the film as ‘beyond impressive considering we made it!’

The film was successfully funded through Kickstarter back in December 2012 and released two years later in December 2014. Throughout 2015, the filmmakers took the film on tour, screening for cinema audiences and LARP groups alike in over 5 countries with highlights including an appearance at San Diego Comic Con and playing to a sold out audience in London’s favourite indie cinema, Genesis.

Due to popular demand, the film is now making its way to DVD and BluRay for home viewing. Running until December 4th, either version can be pre­ordered through Kickstarter as well as loads of extra merch. Both releases will be filled with unseen special features and more of the crazy LARP shenanigans that have won fans over in the last year’s theatrical tour. Running for a limited time, this might be the only chance to get your hands on the film, so if you’ve seen it and loved it or missed out at the cinema, get pre­ordering a copy now!

Happy Halloween! Today we decided to have some fun by smashing some pumpkins back behind the studio. We didn’t have an awesome hammer to use, so we used an axe… which really isn’t as fun as a hammer! For that reasons, we’re doing out “Top 4 Halloween Hammers” list to give you an idea of the awesome LARP hammers on the market right now!


#4 The Hammer of Fili the Dwarf

Kili's Hammer

“Fili was born into the royal line of Durin and raised under the stern guardianship of his uncle, Thorin Oakenshield. Along with his brother Kili, Fili is one of the youngest in The Company of Dwarfs. He has never traveled far, nor ever seen the fabled Dwarf City of Erebor.  A skilled fighter, Fili sets off on the adventure ahead with little idea of the challenges and dangers that lie before him.”

This hammer is made by Wicked Replica’s from New Zealand. These guys have done a number of movie themed weapons. They are quite hard, but a fantastic fit for your Dwarven LARP Character!

Now this is cool! Questionably one of the coolest ways I’ve seen spells physically represented. These spell representations are amazing, and from what we hear, fly great! Deviant Art user Shovennae created these for a LARP, and we couldn’t help but promote the idea! Be sure to leave a positive comments on Shovennae’s original post HERE!раскруткасайтсайт […]

“The Executive Producer of The Lord of the Rings has joined forces with the creators and producers of The Amazing Race to conjure a land of magic and malevolence, where mythical creatures lurk in the woods. For 12 lucky souls, a fantastic world will come alive in a unique competition series where players will engage in epic challenges.”


Over the last two years LARPing.org has been aware of countless attempts to bring LARP to TV, and in some cases have worked with the research teams behind those attempts to better educate and shed light on what Live Action Role Playing is. “The Quest” is one we posted about last summer, and after nearly a year of waiting we have a chance to see what ABC had in mind.



It’s rare to see a reality TV series in which the genre has producer with tried and true track record for success. In this case we have producers from both “The Lord of the Rings” trilogy as well as “The Amazing Race”, both with years of experience in their respective fields.

Things we see that we like:

  • Beautiful Set Design
    Holy cow! Talk about some fantastic sets. They have obviously taken the time to setup shots the highlight the setting of the “Game”, and the projected mood of the scene.
  • Fantastic Makeup
    At one point we see a witch, few monsters, and (what I imagine is) a few baddies. All of them with impeccable makeup!
  • Unscripted (We hope)
    Reality TV is made on the cutting room floor, but from what we can tell neither camp developing this show has a history of twisting plots and creating unrealistic drama or tension between characters. We hope this is the case here!
  • Attention to Detail
    In many cases shows like this run with a very tight budget, it’s good to see they haven’t completely jumped the shark and put anyone in David Bowie’s wardrobe… yet.
  • Mark Ordesky
    If you’re unfamiliar with Ordesky, you must be living under a rock. That is all.


Sadly, this type of show is risky. Very risky. Without properly developing a narrative and making it clear enough for the audience, Non-LARPers will become confused by the In and Out of character progression of the show. This may be too much for some even with that clear narrative defined.

Things we see that we worry about:

  • “LARP” Never Mentioned
    This is truly a double edged sword. Some will immediately be interested in the show with that “keyword” included in its marketing, while others will completely sign it off. Of course we’d like to see it in there, but we can understand why it isn’t. Allow the viewer to make the decision!
  • Casting and Characters
    From what we can tell, there are a wide variety of players engaged in this game but all seem to fall into the Hollywood tropes of tall strong men and pretty ladies. Again, we completely understand why these exist, but we can’t help but wish there wasn’t at least “one small skinny dude with a D&D tattoo on his butt” totally in awe at what he’s doing and captured up in the moment. Heck, maybe there is and we just haven’t seen him yet! The average Joe is often missing in these shows.
  • RP or Acting by a Script?
    At this point we can’t tell how much RP will be involved, but from snippets we can tell there is a certain level of scripted conversation in place. Hopefully that stays to a minimum between players, and leaves players the chance to explore the game more naturally.

Information about the show is limited. All sentiments are purely anecdotal. We hope to offer more in the coming weeks.
