We’re Sinking Ship Creations, a company that exists to empower storytellers through the promotion of live-action role play (LARP) as an American art form
What is larp?
According to Collins’ English Dictionary, LARP is:
a type of role-playing game in which each participant assumes a particular character and acts out various scenarios at events which last for a predetermined time
II. Verb (intransitive)
to participate in such an event
…but of course, it’s so much more than that. When you attend a larp, you don’t just experience the story...you help to tell it. Authors and orchestrators provide the setting and the overall narrative (be it besieging a castle in France or saving a sinking Soviet submarine), but your decisions determine what happens next. Will your character be a hero or a villain? A leader or a follower? Young or old? Wise or naive? Will they align with a group or be an outsider? Every choice you make changes the experience for you and those around you.
Everyone who larps is a storyteller - we want you to tell your story. Larp lets you live in the narratives you create, experiencing perspectives that would otherwise be impossible to encounter, and building empathy for fellow peoples.
Whether you choose to enjoy one of our designs, require assistance producing your own, or merely want to learn more about larp, we offer professional quality support while reducing costs and barriers to entry. We seek nothing less than a world where larping is as common as reading a book, and we’ll work to overcome barriers presented by income, injustice, and lack of opportunity to promote this medium to all.
