My focus is to ensure that the written design and organization of LARP systems offers itself to aid the growth and development of the LARP communities they serve. By developing social guides and encouraging positive behavior, it is my hope that we can help the greater gaming community to overcome the obstacles it places in front of itself. I hope that this community becomes the first step for something better, where we can provide social and safety standards for the LARP community as a whole.
