Friday night I got to stretch out of my rp'ing comfort zone a little bit. I played in [livejournal.com profile] wired_lizard's Escaflowne LARP, and had a character who was basically a penitent war criminal. There were more shades of gray than that, of course, because he still loooooooved him some mad science, to the point of having a (very very unexpressed) academic-crush on the designers of the bomb that wiped out 75% of his nation's army, but at heart it was a night of exploring big issues like guilt, and patriotism, and how much less attractive people, even sparkly people played by [livejournal.com profile] big_jewfro with long blond hair, get when they shout at you a lot and hit you in the head.

It helped, of course, that my character sheet was *really* well-written...not only that, but each of the characters had a pouch provided by the GMs for their items and bluesheets and character sheets, and the bluesheets even came with a MAP of all the territories we were discussing! It was pretty amazing.
