At a recent LARP (Fear of The Dark – Beltane) a interesting question was asked by a very experienced larper. That was – why do more women seem to play NPC roles in games as opposed to player roles?

It was a question based purely on personal experience but it raised an interesting point. Is there a difference in how women choose their roles in a larp as opposed to men?
So we decided the interview the originator of the question (Susan Hathaway), together with the writer and referee of Beltane (Emma-Leigh Knight). It turned into an interesting conversation.
