Characteristics of 700% larps
- Very few players and many non-player characters. Often 7 times or more as many non-player characters as players - hence the name of the tradition.
- Very little transparency. Players are not allowed to know who is participating as players or npcs, what locations they can visit or where the story of the larp might take them.
- No simulation or replacement rules.
- Aims for a 360º degrees illusion.
- Pervasive. Geographically and socially.
- Railroaded stories
