I’m a thirtysomething dad and IT professional living in the Austin, TX area. I started gaming way back in the day, 1982, with the TSR space opera game Star Frontiers. Since then I've been an avid roleplayer. I went to 5 Gen Cons, was a regional Triad for the RPGA's Living Greyhawk campaign, helped start a gaming club (the FORGE) in Memphis, TN, et cetera.

I GM and play a variety of RPGs; currently Pathfinder is in heavy rotation as well as various non-D&D-based games.

Every LARP group has some kind of standard, so this is an unlimited-list question.

comment Are there any generally accepted standards for larp weapons?
I think this is a fair question, as long as you are fine with the answer of "there's not one single set of standards, there's a bunch of them which vary by LARP organization, country, etc." If you're looking for a list of standards, that'd be off-topic. Your comments on other answers seem to indicate you have further requirements as to what would make a good answer that you don't state in the question; I think clarifying those would help people not see this as a list question.

comment Was Chaosium's founder first to buy a copy of D&D?
After discussing with Brian I think it's probably a worse thing to do to fundamentally alter this question and invalidate all the answers than to historical-lock it and free you up to ask something else related that's on topic.

Having said that, the OP needs to perhaps give some more parameters for what they'd want out of a homebrew rule for this case.

1. Please do not answer in comments. 2. Homebrew answers are fine when appropriate, see meta.rpg.stackexchange.com/questions/5153/… for guidance.

comment How would you judge the alignment of this action and the possible repercussions?
This is both unclear (which system? D&D alignments? You say Desna so I'm guessing Pathfinder) and purely opinion-based - everyone's personal take on what's LE vs CG vs whatever is completely different and also not super relevant. Is the problem that your DM is dinging you for this? Is the problem that you're not sure if your action is congruent with CG (where I would argue that alignment should describe your character's personality, not be some weird guideline you follow)?

comment How best to progressively reveal the layout of a location to players?
It's gotten one more answer since reopening and it seems like a good one. I'm not sure why everyone's getting wrapped around the axle of this question as it's just like any other "how do I" GM technique question. Add a meta Q if you really think it merits more unpacking.
