    Correct me if I`m wrong, but isn`t LARPing basically just playing like children in playgrounds? Sure, it`s probably a bit more complex, but it seems that nerds need to live out their childhoods in adulthood, because they spent all their time working when they were children... I blame the parents!

    This is not larp. At least not serious larp. This is the kind of pooty american larp. REAL larp looks like THIS.


    And to cleanse the mightiest doubts in the rest of you... larp can also look like this.

    Forget badly taped cardboard. There`s some real action in larp.

    Why should you? A good convention always is a fair mixture of tavern fun and battle. As the tavern part usually includes large amounts of honey wine, there are always some dancers to be looked at.

    So is LARPing anything like the battle re-enactment societies we see in the UK - you know, the one`s that re-enact things like the battle of Hastings and things like that? Or is LARPing strictly D`n`D and WoW stuff? Basically is it historical or just a geeky game?

    Larp is Larp, Reenactment is Reenactment. Read Wikipedia. Larp is neither D`n`D nor WoW. There usually are local groups that play their own land/race/culture and that go to conventions (for a weekend or so) and meet with other players. You play whatever you like. Depending on the organisation that leads the convention there is a story with battles, riddles etc. to solve. The players may engage in plot, or not. There are different genres in the larp scene including middle age, fantasy, futuristic settings and vampires.

    I once heard of a convention that went wrong pretty badly. It was a vampire con settled in a present time universe and the players were running around with gun imitations. Too bad the neighbours weren`t informed and got kinda panicky. The police showed up and one of the players thought they were related to the play telling them he had "boots of speed" so they could`t catch him.

    Yes, it`s a joke. Real LARPing is complex and involves knowing how to use real weapons.

    It`s better than sitting around playing WoW for hours on end.

    This was obviously making fun of LARPing, but to be honest, the real thing doesn`t look half bad. It`s not as bad as sitting indoors playing games like World of Warcraft all day.

    Oh, don`t even get me started on LARPs.. I suppose they`re harmless as long as those playing can separate fiction from reality. Kinda hard to do when your house is full of armor, foam swords, duct tape, skulls, dragons, banners, chains and all kinds of other useless stuff. People quit their damn jobs to go to camping events to play more LARPs... SCA, Amtgard, FRS to name a few.. The list goes on and on.. Might as well go jogging.

    Eww... she looks disgusting with fur growing on more than half her breasts. Mating with her could be considered bestiality. She really is very hairy.

    Right, because staring at a collection of colored dots on a screen while pretending you`re a super-soldier is *so* much more manly and cool...

    Just because you`re a good little sheep and only play your games because it`s become socially acceptable doesn`t make it any better. Ten years ago, videogaming was as nerdy as can be. Your hobby is no better than someone else`s. Piss off.

    Interesting that so many people on here come to the defence of the LARPers but if anything to do with, say, the Furries is posted everyone comes down on them like a ton of bricks.

    I`m just saying.

    Oh and on that front im neither of the above, I`m firmly in the group of saddos who sit behind a computer screen all day pretending to be a level 56 rogue. Feel free to mock me.
