The 2006 LARP Magazine pilot worked well. The LARP
Magazine offers valuable advertising space that will be seen across the four
corners of the world including America, Canada, the United Kingdom and
Europe. In North America, physical distribution is focused to game stores,
game conventions, LARP Events, and NERO & other LARP and LARP oriented
The Magazine will have a content composition that is about 90% from North
America and 10% from the European market.
Beginning March 2007, the Magazine will be published each quarter, each
receiving 3 months of direct distribution. Previous versions of the Magazine
and the Newsletter are available in the Archives section of the website.
While the value of reaching a large part of a market with one publication is
priceless, we have kept advertising prices low to encourage participation.
Additionally, starting April 01, 2007, the magazine will be carried by
www.Edhellen.com, the largest supplier of foam fighting weapons in the
country. Edhellen Armoury supplies Amtgard, Dagorhir, Belegarth. Edhellen
has also agreed to put a LARP Magazine flier in with every shipment made
throughout the year except where prohibited by other agreements.

LARP Magazine Distribution (Update January 04, 2007)
The 2006 LARP Magazine pilot worked well. The LARP Magazine was first
presented to attendees at the LARPY Awards in May 2006. It was included in
more than 2-dozen celebrity gift bags and distributed to 150 people from 10
different LARP groups from the US and abroad, and given to a half-dozen
Distribution remains focused on the gaming industry in the United States.
The main effort is to place the magazine in front of thousands of game
hobbyists through Game Conventions, Game Store distribution and inclusion
with NERO® LARP and other Live Game Organization paid Memberships.
In 2007, the goal is to distribute 2,000 physical copies of each of the 4
Magazines published. The Magazine’s go-to-print dates are March 15th; June
15th; September 15th; and December 15, 2007. Distribution begins the first
week of the following month.
As of March 01, 2007, the LARP Magazine has a subscription totaling nearly
1,000 people and will distribute 1,000 copies through game conventions,
trade show, game store, and LARP event sales and giveaways.
Game Conventions: NERO® attends the largest game conventions each year,
including GenCon, DragonCon, I-Con, ConnectiCon, Origins, GTS, A-Kon,
WorldCon (America), totaling near 100,000 con-goers in attendance.
Additionally, NERO® Chapters attend a dozen additional Game Conventions
throughout the US and Canada, extending the reach of the Magazine.
Additionally, partner LARP groups and Game Companies will also distribute
copies at their venues.
Game Stores: We have developed relationships with several hundred Game and
Hobby Stores across America and Canada. Several of these stores distributed
20 copies of the Magazine. Our goal is to approach game stores across
America, nearly 5,000, to carry the magazine physically at their location.
LARP Memberships: NERO® includes a 1-year subscription to the LARP Magazine
with the purchase of a 1-year NERO® Membership, and is using the LARP
Magazine as its primary reporting mechanism. This relationship is likely to
increase the subscription total by 500 per year as more NERO Members update
their memberships. We are creating relationships with other Live Game
companies and groups to provide reporting services for their organization
and subscriptions to their members.
We accept and publish articles and accompanying pictures, illustrations, and
artwork submitted by Individuals, Companies and Game Groups in an effort to
expand the knowledge of Live Games.
Free issues are given to all individuals who provide content to the
