Is it okay to ask LARP specific questions?
LARP and Freeform should both be in. I prefer to interpret the tabletop as saying that we aren't talking about business roleplaying, not that some of the RPGs you might see at a gaming con aren't welcome. How about changing the charter from:
Role-playing Games Stack Exchange is for players and gamemasters of tabletop role-playing games.
Role-playing Games Stack Exchange is for players, gamemasters, and writers of tabletop, live-action, or freeform role-playing games.
(see how RPG writers sneak into my proposal)?
Yes, I don't see why not--the demographics of the community would determine whether they get answered and how they are voted. That said, I don't know much about what kind of LARP questions there would be and how out of place they might seem.
I'm not a LARPer; I'm a tabletopper. Still, I don't see a lot of difference between a good tabletop immersion in which everyone is in-character while sitting and a good LARP immersion in which everyone is in-character while standing and moving around. The basic premise behind what the game is meant to be seems to remain the same (of course, I could be wrong since I don't LARP). I think LARP questions should be included. A "LARP" tag will allow people to filter out the questions if they don't want to see them.
I don't want to be an excluder, but the original proposal explicitly states "tabletop, paper-and-pencil role-playing games".
Do we have any LARPers in the community at this point?
If yes, we should accommodate them.
If not, I think we should stick with the proposal. So far, there are no questions about LARPing (please correct me if I'm wrong) and several other users have already speculated in comments and answers that LARP could/should get its own Stack Exchange site. As such I think the silent consensus has been that this site is about tabletop, paper-and-pencil role-playing games.
But again, if there are LARPers in our community already, we should try to accommodate them; I'm not one for blatant, deliberate exclusion.
If you're a LARPer, please see the Are you a LARPer? question.
I know we have at least one other LARPer who's pretty active but hasn't spoken up yet. I'd say go for it, and we'll see what happens.
I'm a Larper and I'm a tabletopper too. I like see both in here. =D
As long as all questions concerning Live Action are tagged as such, I suppose it isn't a problem. But, I don't see much overlap between the technical table-top and dramatic LARP. It falls outside the scope of the proposal.
