Community embarks on new LARP adventure
SOUTH STORMONT, Ontario – Residents had the opportunity to join the first episode of a live action role-playing game at South Stormont Township on Saturday, Jan. 5.
Shawn Loader, Owner of Exodus LARP Systems, said that he and his wife Sarah had been working on their original LARP script since February of 2018.
“Every (player’s) interaction is meaningful. It progresses and changes the storyline as it builds,” said Loader.
Loader has been involved in the LARP community for about 12 years and believes that Exodus LARP Systems is currently the only LARP organization that exists in Cornwall and SDG.
“I feel for especially the older youth...it’s more meaningful interactions than playing something like a mass, online role-playing game,” said Loader about the benefits of LARPing. “You’re actually interacting with people.”
Loader explained that he works with a lot of skilled individuals, including great sewers and costume designers, people who make prosthetics and props, as well as Blacksmiths.

Players must be 16-years-old and up and pay $40 during the winter months to participate for 8 hours of entertainment.
