Inspired by the Nordic group by the same name, Larp Women Unite France just celebrated its first year of existence. In this talk, Muriel Algayres will explain how the French group took inspiration from its Nordic counterpart while facing challenges specific to the French-speaking area, to the greater benefit of the larp community at large.
Muriel Algayres is a historian, teacher and game designer from France. She has been creating larp for 15 years, including Dreams of Absinth, Harem Son Saat, and the Belle Epoque trilogy.
