Well, that's disappointing. Now I suppose I'm stuck with Plan B, which involves kidnapping people like Matt Pennington and Ryan Paddy and chaining them to radiators in my basement so that I can have substantive discussions about LARP design whenever I like.
Or at least I could do that, if I had some radiators.
The thing is, I haven't larped in ages now, but am still keenly interested in the hobby, and would love to have somewhere that talks about the hobby as a whole so I can keep up to date with what's new, and maybe be tempted to join a larp in the future. (Pagga very nearly persuaded me to join Maelstrom, I only didn't cos I couldn't find anyone else interested at the time)
As for conversations about LARP it's mainly across various FB groups and on people's own walls. I'd love a decently moderated discussion forum of some kind but that requires people to mod the damn thing, which is a somewhat thankless task.
