Gerrit Reininghaus is a live action designer from Germany with strong links to Guatemala. His works tackle opportunities and challenges of online live action play. He is also writing story games to organize his thoughts and experiences: from tuk tuk racing to the joy of putting on makeup together. Gerrit has won two Golden Cobras for LAOG designs, and a FRED for promotion of the German of the larp scene to a wider audience.
This article presents a categorization of LAOGs - depending on how they make use of the communication channels in place. It identifies three different forms: The Diegetic Call, The Invisible Call, and The Metaphorical Call.
