A sudden end is a technique for ending a larp, in which the game ends instantly on a given signal.
Instead of having a slow landing larps can end using the Sudden End method: At a given time or signal the larp ends abruptly.
Used primarily where you want to end the larp simultaneously for everyone, in order to avoid mixups between people who are still in-larp and people who are off-larp. Usually followed by most participants repeating "game off" or similar to each other.
