Default Traveller LARP?

Has anyone run or played in one of these? If so do you have any advice or observations? INTERCON will be space-themed next year, you see, so I'm tempted to treat 'em to a bit of the Third I mperium.

Years ago I was in one based on a cruise liner somewhere down near Pax Rulin on Imperial border. My gaming group also ran a freeform (the Oz equivalent of a LARP) based in Hitler's bunker in the last three hours of WW2.

My advice is
1. Concentrate on creating good, playable, interesting characters.
2. Give them plenty of "hooks" (i.e. in-game goals) that force them to interact with all the other characters.
3. Create an overall "story arc" and a method of pushing it forward; for example, use multiple referees as NPCs who can drive the plot forward through some pre-planned, set-piece actions.
4. Read Tavonni Repair Bays --> Other Assorted Notes --> Designing Convention Modules on my website. These are a set of dot-points you can follow while prepping the scenario.

Good luck, and let us know how it all goes!

There was an article on Traveller LARP back in the day. But not certain where or when.

Also, I tried putting a little LARP PBP in the Moot a year ago and it didn't go over well.

The best place for a LARP would be at the Traveller convention.
