    When I think of LARPers I think of the show "Insomniac" and the time he interviewed some down south..It was the saddest thing ever.

        LARP and Risk...LARP and Battleship...LARP and Sorry!

        ...I can see the endless possibilities.


        LARP and Guess Who?

        Seriously, LARPing is actually very common, but it all depends on what you think of LARP as. For one, I'm sure alot of Convention goers see people dressed up in costumes (such as that barbarian barechested guy over there, or the elf gowned girl over there...) but don't think of it as LARP.
        Simliarly, acting and so forth is also LARP. I digress, and must say I'm sure you all as children have LARPed, one way or another.

        And one major LARP everyone commonly enjoys is most certainly not polite to mention on the forums.

          When you put it that way, LARPing is technichally all forms of acting.

          However, i think of it mostly in the game sense. Such as when some idiot in plastic armor runs at you with a whiffle bat with a 3x5 card taped to it that says "Maulslayer, +3 vorpal guardian sword" screaming that he's "flying".

          I prefer my own version of "larp".

          Society for Creative Anachronism

          I guess its a lot like LARP. Only there aren't any friggin fairies, the armor is real, and (while blunt and padded) those are real arrows coming at you.

          I much prefer pulling off the perfect feint-wrap shot to slot my blade across thigh and make them limp for a few days and then brag about my own bruises during the revel afterwords, than spend an hour playing paper-rock-scissors and arguing over who's 3x5 spell card went off first.

          They're laughing at you behind your back.
          They all want to see you die a horrible death.
          They want you to put your pants back on.
          You squint.

            PS:

            Here's a picture of a couple of members of my unit fighting in a small skirmish war. (The guys in the red and black tunics, Alexander and Galen)

            At least if you're gonna be nerds, beat the !#@(% out of each other while you're doing it.

            (yes its full contact bruise-em-up combat)

                Ah, the SCA... how fondly I remember it. Too bad the people I used to go with moved away. Never got to fight, but I always had a blast there.
                Before you is a wraithlike gryphon, the air around him shimmering with bright flares of magic. The scent of gold and alchemy ingrediants permeates from him. Gunk and sap resides within his fur, resulting from a lack of grooming. Occasional scars and ample scabs are the only break from his black, unkept hide. His infested claws are covered in a grey creep that maggots writhe about in. At the end of his elongated tail is a bulk of deformed bone with spikes emerging from it. A layer of creep also covers this deformity. Sharply contrasting the rest of his body are his trimmed wings, carefully preened to be presentable. Upon the ends of these sinewy wings reside a circle of white feathers. Green eyes reside above his straight beak.

                  If it were computers, I would have to say Grendel's Revenge, because I have managed to play it for more than a month (and don't know any others *coughs*)

                  However, if I could vote for a non-PC RPG....I would have to say Kingdom Hearts. I like Final Fantasy, but I love the Kingdom Hearts story-line and the combat system. Plus, I dislike that there's an online Final Fantasy...totally bad idea, cause the game will be ruined by all those no-life-nerds out there who never get out of their chair and have uber-powerful-god-chars. But that's just me ranting *coughs*

                          Very, very much worth the price, for the right audience.

                          That coming from someone who, until GR came along, spent a grand total of about $80/year on all purchases that were not food, clothing, shelter, or education-related.
