Masks have traditionally been used in a number of different ritual and theatric forms. In larp, masks can be used as a simple but powerful part of a costume - or as an integral part of the game design.

Larps with masks as a central part of their game design

  • Persona (2005) - Danish convention larp that premiered at Fastaval 2005, which used masks as diegetic tool in a utopian setting where the characters played archetypical members of society.
  • Sort sol (2012) - Blackbox game from Blackbox CPH, which used non-diegetic masks to indicate players changing from human roles to the roles of animal gods in pairs (fox, rat, mouse, bear and pig)
