This is simply a copy of the letter I've been trying to send and have sent to news stations. Anyone who holds a practice independently in the area, I encourage to join up as a Fighter's Guild chapter, the benefits and the resources would be helpful to all! I will contact all relevant parties!
To whomever it concerns:
I am writing to you on behalf of the Larp Alliance and the Fighter's Guild [of the Larp Alliance]. Last Friday, the Universal film "Role Models" premiered in national theaters, and it highlighted a fictious LARP called LAIRE. LARP is an acronym for Live Action RolePlay.
The pertinence of the Larp Alliance in this letter is the fact that Adrianne Grady of the LARP Alliance was hired onto the movie as technical advisor for the LAIRE portions of the movie and the Larp Alliance is credited at the end of the film under the "Thanks to" portion. Adrianne can be found every Thursday at a neighborhood park in Rancho Cucamonga, CA hosting a fighter practice. We would like you to run a story on LARP Alliance and the Fighter's Guild practices to inform the public and anyone who'd be interested in this kind of hobby that we are a viable resource for them to get involved through. The Fighter's Guild is currently setting up five locations in Socal, two of which are set, Anaheim and Rancho Cucamonga, and we are trying to officially establish Canoga Park, Alhambra and Lake Elsinore. The Guild website is under construction, but should be up by the end of the week. I'll establish pertinent links at the closing of this letter.
We also use a networking site like MySpace.com called Larpspace.com. This is the community hub for Larpers around the country. As the LARP Alliance, we do everything that we can to help promote and support the LARP community in the country, we are just a few days away from establishing a non-profit status as an educational group, since we also collaborate in workshops, and classes, and also providing tools necessary to attend or run LARPs.
Thank you for your time and consideration. Just to keep things clear, I will be sending this letter to other major news stations in the Los Angeles, Inland Empire, and Orange County areas. I hope you will grant us a chance for a proper news story to highlight this immersive and creative hobby!
Head of the Fighter's Guild
Member of the LARP Alliance
