Episode 93: Ashley Zdeb & LARP 101

“Apart from the fact that you blocked me from banging a fairy and I’m about to go lose my crown in battle thanks to my army being decimated, yeah, totally good.”

We’ve got a great interview for you this week. We talk to Co-founder and Director of the nationwide LARP Dystopia RisingAshley Zdeb. Ashley helps further our understanding of LARPing by covering some basics of game play and engagement and also some of the exciting stories that are told in game. Dystopia Rising is a post-apocalyptic, zombie filled world unlike any other LARP we’ve heard of before.

We’d love to hear your thoughts about LARPing, especially with zombies involved. Leave us a comment here or on Facebook or Twitter.

Until next time, game on!
Regina & Rhonda

Regina is the founder and lead ambassador of The Geek Embassy. Studying and writing about geeks and geek culture is Regina’s favorite thing to do when she’s not reading student papers, dancing an excessive amount of calories away, or chasing after her daughter. Inclined towards mobile and social gaming online, Regina also loves a good round of 7 Wonders, Qwirkle, Small World, or Lords of Waterdeep. Someday, she hopes to actually take part in a D&D campaign so she can officially “roll” a character and role play her as a devious, highly intelligent mischief maker, which would be nothing like she is in real life.
