Oh, Oregon Chapter is the local Alliance LARP group. There's also a Seattle Chapter, a SF Chapter, etc. Each is a self-contained game space that is considered to be on different continents or islands in the same overarching World. So the lore is the same Nationally. But the Chapters run different stories. It's like how Pathfinder is a game system with a bunch of agreed on races, but each gaming group runs a different story that doesn't affect other gaming groups' stories. ^_^
Yeah! It's pretty freaking awesome fun! I can't wait to get back to it when the world stops ending! We've been keeping people invested with online RP, but I want the Live Action part of LARP back, darn it!
