A Community That LARPs
Our world has changed a lot in the 25+ years since the original World of Darkness materials were created. Likewise, gaming within a multi-city LARP environment has also evolved. The Hidden Parlor was founded in 2015 and through our shared experiences in the LARP community, we came up with our three guiding principles:
Dedication to a dynamic, immersive setting that empowers local chapters
We believe in striking a balance between organizational consistency and local creativity. Our global setting guides provide wide boundaries on what we consider to be acceptable so that each game is able to define themselves while remaining within the scope of the World of Darkness.
Emphasizing the in-person aspect of LARP
We believe that an online-focused, 24/7 game places undue stress on both storytellers who have to oversee and facilitate emailbased scenes, as well as players who feel they need to participate in the “online game” in order to be involved. We want online-based in-character interactions to be the exception, not the rule.
Developing a Community based on shared interests, mutual respect and volunteerism
We believe in building a community where everyone feels that they are able to contribute. The Hidden Parlor is a volunteer-run organization and couldn’t exist without countless hours of work from dedicated members. Our members shape and mold who we are perceived as an organization and community.
