The second run took place one day before “The Office”, to accustom some new players to our concepts. It was the first time, we did a second run of a Soap-LARP.
Although the same background story and characters were “recycled”, due to the “mode of coincidence”, a whole new experience was created. Like in chaos theory, small changes were enough to alter the whole LARP.
Structured debriefing was introduced to review the emotions and stories that came up, which proved to be more important than we thought;strong feelings were evoked in this LARP, regarding fear, resenting, bullying, depression, hopelessness, love and friendship.
It was an intense experience for many participants.
