Abstract/Description

The ways in which humans tell stories has evolved greatly from the past to the modern day. Oral traditions have evolved into written traditions and with the development of new mediums such as television, film, and radio, has provided even more ways in which to tell stories. Sometimes, these new mediums of storytelling diminish the role of oral traditions, placing more emphasis on the written or visual aspects of the story. Despite the shift in way we tell stories, some communities still rely heavily on oral traditions to build communities and to develop cultures, such as the case with Belegarth, a medieval foam combat society, also considered by many, a Live Action Roleplay.
