LARP It Yourself

About the System

LIY Banner copy.png

LARP It Yourself is a DIY gaming system designed to allow you to play any type of game you want by providing a basic game system that will work whether you want to LARP, sit around a table, or play online. Here you’ll find instructions on how to make a basic character as well as how to make various Powers and Equipment that may exist in your game world.

But what is a LARP? A LARP is a Live Action Role Playing game where instead of sitting around a table like in most games, you act out your character’s actions and wear costumes in a manner similar to improvisational theater!

As easy as a single 6 sided die

Most role playing game systems require full sets of dice, or multiples of the same type. Even then, many systems use special dice that you won't have just laying around unless you're already in to role playing games.

By using a single 6 sided die, we've created a system that even those new to gaming can pick up and play with little investment, using the same dice that come with many board games that you may already own!

Designed with Live Action in mind

Many game systems only exist to be played one way, and typically that's sitting around a table.

Live Action Role Playing games (LARPs) are becoming more popular, and unfortunately many existing game systems don't support it. Anywhere, any way, you can generate a random number between 1 and 6, you'll be able to play. Whether that's a dice app on your smart phone, a deck of playing cards, or carrying dice on your person, you'll be able to play.

You create the rules

Using our unique Power Creation system, you can play any kind of game you want whether it's Science Fiction, Fantasy, or Horror!
