In [[SovietRussia Democratic Russia]], LARP is often indistinguishable from historical reconstruction, not that anyone but hardass living-history types (and, more importantly, {{Jerk Jock}}s who are in historical reenactment for the fighting) tries to enforce the distinction much. There is a huge [[SortingAlgorithmOfTropes sliding scale]], from theater RP, where the absolute worst thing that can [[RealLife IRL]] happen to you is a rubber knife [[AssShove somewhere uncomfortable]], to [[https://secure.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/de/wiki/Buhurt buhurt]]-style faintly-story-driven mass violence, broken bones included.

* ''Ravn'', possibly (traditions differ) the oldest LARP community in Norway, began as a small fanbase for MedievalFantasy in UsefulNotes/{{Oslo}} in 1989, and grew immensely over the years, spawning a number of subgroups. The group also spawned their own fantasy setting, ''Ravnariket'' (The Raven Kingdom), rapidly expanding to cover an entire continent with several countries, a complicated backstory and a lot of tribes, conflicting interests and politics. This happened over the years because the game masters involved understood the need for more plot. The different groups involved in the different settings also improvised to make the world more complicated and somewhat crazy at times. From this group sprang the [[Laiv.org]] site, a netbased forum for new ideas and new groups. The different settings, apart from said fantasy world, covers contemporary settings, historical settings, horror, vampire and western.

* In ''TranshumanSpace'' this is how Lunar kids spend their time, since they can easily reform Lunar City's smart buildings into whatever environment is appropriate, and don't have realtime access to the Earth-based Net games.

The system has been running since late 2011.
