Short for 'physical representation', a physrep is another word to describe a prop. However, unlike a simple prop such as a belt pouch (which is intended to be a belt pouch in-game as well as out), a physrep usually represents something more than the prop itself. For instance, a gauzy veil can be used as a physrep to indicate that the person wearing it is portraying a ghost. In this case, they are interpreted In Character not as wearing a veil, but as being spooky and ethereal.
