Splendid! Playground Magazine, the Nordic larp magazine that I’ve discussed a couple of times in the past and notoriously difficult to acquire, has been made available in a digital format at HP MagCloud. I picked up all four copies I didn’t yet have. I haven’t yet had time to actually read them, but a quick browse reveals a number of interesting things I have to read in greater depth. There’s one about Kapo, which I may actually end up using as an essay source; one called “10 Ways to Manipulate Your Players”; an article about Nordic Larp; an interview of Zak S; “How Bleed Is Ruining Larp”; “Table-Talk and 8th-Grade-itis”, which is about the roleplaying scene in Japan; and a dozen other things. It’s fascinating, and it’s finally properly available. Thanks to Juhana Pettersson for the heads-up.
