Called the last prospective Larp sites in Laurel that I have on my list. And the best deal looks to be the Laurel VFD, which is just over $100 an hour. Now, we're looking at 5-6 hours per game, which is adding up.
All this mess of trying to track down a larp sites (I have some reasonable standards, I feel) is inclining me, more and more, to just run a table-top game instead. I've been waffling on this for, oh, six months or more now. I think tomorrow or Thursday I will write up a pro and con of larp vs. table-top, and solicit some opinions here. LJ is nothing if not a good place to dredge up opinions.
