OT: LARP help

I'm trying to organize a LARP on my college campus. I have never LARPed; I always wanted to, but I'm in a small city and I've never found one in my area. I think I might be able to get a half-dozen or so players on my campus; if so, we could start one together.

However, I know next to nothing about starting up a LARP. I'd like to do an ongoing fantasy game with action as well as personal character interaction. I have almost no clue how to go about that. Do any of you know of resources that might help me? I searched for instruction manuals on Amazon but none are available. http://www.pagga.net/wiki/ is helpful but not terribly instructive as to how an organizer manages the storyline, organizes characters/players, etc. Ideally, I'd like to play a character as well as organize, but I don't know if that's possible.

Basically, I get the concept but I don't know how to implement it and actually plan our first evening of play. This all depends, of course, on getting people interested. I would really appreciate any help (advice, web pages, whatever) you can offer. Thank you in advance!

Mods, if this is too off-topic, please delete it.

Because this is a photo community and I'm trying not to be too OT, here are my latest wings:
