About Martin (LarpForge)

Martin, alias LazyLarper, is a LARPer from Denmark. He is the most un-lazy larper we've ever met and is the host/producer of the webshow LarpForge. He started LARPing at the age of 12, loves to make his own weapons, costumes, etc. which comes through in his show!

In this episode of LarpForge the LazyLarper is talking about how to make a character and what to think about when creating a character. What is the essence of character creation? What makes up the character?  And who is he/she?

No matter what system or game you are playing in, you always need a character/role.

Things to take into consideration when making your character:

What he/she is:

  • What do I want to play? (personal motivation, no limits)
  • What can I play? (limits of the setting/rules etc.)
  • What can I pull off? (costume, acting, personal limits etc.)

Now that we have the “frame”/skeleton/cardboard cutout of the character, it is time to put some meat on the bones.

Who he/she is:

  • Behaviors (polite/rude, accent, gets-car-sick, etc.)
  • Habits (rolls his eye, swears, subconscious movement, etc.)
  • Background story (reasons for behaviors, how they grew up, reasons for profession, etc.)

I think what makes the core of the character is defining: who the character is. It’s what takes the character and gives them an identity, making a character into a person.

When this “person” then interacts with other characters, they create an immersive environment. This is what creates role-playing, which is what we want, is it not?
