Together they were responsible for making Brazilian larpers more acquainted with Nordic larp and its themes, starting to discuss Brazilian larp and integrating and bringing larp groups into communication as never seen before in Brazil. Since 2011, the scene has been growing, strengthening and diversifying more and more.
Brazilian Larps in englishWe translated two larpscripts to English for the Knutpunkt 2014 Conference, in Sweden. They are "Listen at the Maximum Volume" - about a ex-band members' reunion to decide if the group should restart their carreer - and Bitter Cofee, a sensitive game about affections and farewells with kinesthetic features.
The author of both is Luiz Prado, one of the most actives larpwriters in Brazil, who participates in many groups and initiatives.
LISTEN AT THE MAXIMUM VOLUME
Listen at the Maximum Volume was one of the greatest bands of all time. You sold million of albums, filled up stadiums all around the world, had your picture on the cover of thousands of magazines and became millionaires. But all of this is gone. Fifteen years ago something happened, the band split up, and your life has never been the same again.
Now after a long time, you have finally agreed to talk about what happened and to see if the time has come for a second chance.
Listen at the Maximum Volume is a live-action roleplaying game for 3-7 people about split ups, sorrows, regrets, frustrations, guilty, vanity and nostalgia. The participants are members of a band that are meeting again fifteen years after its end, in a reunion that will bring out repressed anger and past joy, and give rise to expectations, grudges and the opportunity to forgive and retry.
