Most LARPs reach a point where one or more of the PCs, either by luck, purposeful effort, or being in the wrong place at the right time, becomes a leader in the In Game (IG) community. Eventually Plot may want to solidify that position and reward a Player with position in the setting’s nobility. This is a great opportunity for unique role-play and the possible source of substantial conflict. With proper Plot effort, PC nobles can be a huge resource but there is also the potential for that Player to abuse their position within the game. This blog however isn’t about Plot and the PC noble, instead it’s about my experiences playing a PC noble and my suggestions to others in similar positions.
