In 2010, before going to Knudepunkt, before going to Solmukohta, before starting this blog, and even before reading Leaving Mundania, I talked to the French audience of Les GNiales about my experience larping in the USA (mostly Vampire) and Switzerland (all kinds).

My first foray into English-language larp documentation (aka bragging about my larp scene in an international setting) was a talk about larp in Switzerland at Knudepunkt 2011.
