I’ve been asked many times on how to craft an In-character book. I am not someone with the tenancy to write a book, but over the years I managed to fill over a hundred pages with Elrian’s thoughts, stories and songs. So, if you are looking to start your own in-character diary, or spellbook, or… Continue reading How to: In-character books
Elrian met some Fairies and she remembers their faces- in her diary.
I made another book, this time for the guards of the main gate. The elven camp on the Epic Empire Larp has always had a book of the guard, with a guard shift plan, pictures of all the camp’s inhabitants and notes on events at the gate. The first one is full now, after several… Continue reading The Book of the Guard
I made this leather bound journal for a Larp event this year. while manythings are still really improvised I learned a lot on how book covers are constructed. I used an ordinary artist journal for the book, as well as cardboard and thin leather. The motiv was inspired by an art nouveau ceramic tile.
“A promise that must not be broken.“ This is yet another page in the diary of my elven larp character, Elrian. It’s based on a scene that occurred on the Epic Empires 2015.

I took the translation by Ryszard Derdzinski from elvish.org and the melody my father made years ago. The second one is a compilation from all… Continue reading Elrian’s Diary: Sindarin Songs
I started Elrian’s Diary in summer 2011, continuously documenting my Larp character’s adventures. After four years and 70 pages it is now halfway complete. Here is the working process of a recent page. After sketching the content of the page – which I often do while in-character – I rewrite the text and outline the illustration in… Continue reading Elrian’s diary – about Lairon Tirithion
Elrian’s diary is a project I started two years ago, and its original purpose was to collect plot information the character acquired during role play conventions. But after while I started to put in personal stuff that went through my characters head. Its purpose is now to collect both information about plot (which will be… Continue reading Elrian’s Diary
