A live action role-playing game (LARP) is a form of role-playing game where the participants physically act out their characters’ actions. The players pursue goals within a fictional setting represented by the real world, while interacting with each other in character.
The outcome of player actions may be mediated by game rules, or determined by consensus among players. Event arrangers called gamemasters decide the setting and rules to be used and facilitate play.

Dagorhir Battle Games was first created in the 1977 and since then has grown into a game played all across the nation. The first established LARP in the United states, Dagorhir combines fast-paced full-contact combat simulation with elements of live action role-playing. Dagorhir combines elements of both history and fantasy, allowing fighters to adopt personas from a variety of inspirations. This wide ranging appeal and the simplistic rule-set are the reason for Dagorhir’s nationwide success. There are chapters in almost every major city, with the national event, Ragnarok, drawing 2,000 or more attendees annually. The Far Harad, Houston’s local chapter, has been established since 2008. Our weekly practices normally draw 40 fighters and weekend long camp-outs can bring upwards of 70 people from all across the nation. We love to teach and new people are always welcome to come fight or even just enjoy the show.
LARP will be in Room 371 on the THIRD FLOOR and open until Midnight on Friday and Saturday of the convention.
