This book is currently an 80-page (+/-) PDF that can only be had from The Bundle of Holding1's American Freeform2 Bundle. Since Lizzie Stark has published some of the information before, in previous form, on her blog, and since she has published at least one more fuller monograph on a similar topic, Leaving Mundania, I will generally assume that this book will rise again in some form or another outside of the Bundle. My review is for the Bundle'd edition, though.

It is clear that Stark has a pass

"American LARP" means many things to many people here in the US and abroad, and as a player and game designer, I find it very hard to divorce myself from all of that noise to just sit down and write.

The most valuable insight in this book in terms of writing and designing games involves the difference between a coordinator and a director. Even tho
