The Geek Initiative regularly creates and produces LARPs (live action role playing games) online and in person. We strive for physical and emotional safety, consent, inclusion, and immersion. We produce streamed games (using Google Hangouts and Twitch), salon LARPs best suited for conventions or home play, and have a blockbuster LARP in development.
We’re committed to a transparent LARP development process, often developing LARPs on stream and soliciting feedback via Facebook posts and Google surveys. We feel that this is especially important to ensure inclusion and to develop LARPs people wish to play – not simply ones we want to make.
Our primary LARP designer is Tara M. Clapper, TGI’s founder and publisher. Having grown The Geek Initiative as a community for women in geek culture for more than five years, Tara now focuses on developing games, LARP community discussion, and RPGs for publication and sale.
