Welcome to our media and activity page!
Here you will find pictures of the Last Hope LARP group in various conventions we have attended and articles we have been featured in.
=== 2016 ===
In April of 2016, Last Hope LARP was the focus of a LARP documentary filmed and edited by Dylan Riley for a college project.
Please note that this documentary was filmed during our weekly combat practice at a local park; modern garb and modern items are not restricted at practices but at our monthly events they are not allowed; events are full immersion, take place at private locations (not the middle of town), and we enforce minimum standards for garb and modern items.
Last Hope LARP attended the Midwinter Gaming Convention in Milwaukee, WI in January of 2016. Our room and some combat was featured in the Fox 6 Live broadcast along with a writeup on their page and an interview led by Matt Edwardson, one of our Heralds.
