First Lesson is a solo LARP about being near or in the water. You play a creature of the sea (selkie, mermaid, or siren) whose divestment from their home and preternatural form is the starting point of the game. Playing near or in the bodies of water specified in the game (the sea, a community pool, a hot bath with Epsom salt) are essential to the immersive experience. First Lesson calls to mind feelings of cleansing, baptism, and letting all things return to the sea.  

Tone: cleansing, healing, reflective

This is a rare and intriguing solo larp that gets its power from using your imagination while playing in actual bodies of water. Could be renewing or haunting, depending on how you play it. A novel set of prompts for playing pretend alone.
