The potential use of artificial intelligence (AI) in the design of live-action role-playing games (larps) presents a new frontier for this kind of creation processes, even among analog games. To explore the possibilities, we developed Project Dark.IA: The Insurrection of the Captives (Torrebejano 2023), a science fiction larp created mainly through artificial and automated means by ChatGPT and Midjourney. The analysis of this design process shows that, currently, AI is not capable of creating a larp in a coherent and unassisted manner, although some of its resources –in addition to other technological tools, that will be explained– can be truly useful and efficient both creatively and non-diegetically.
