LARP
#31
I also engage in a form of LARPing, I suppose.
There's no elves or magic, or anything involving fantasy like that.
But it's a role that you get into.
I try to take part as much as I can in my local chapter of the SCA
Society for Creative Anacronism.
It's soooo much fun.
And when I go I take part in the fencing. But this is freakin' awesome fencing.
There's no silly white suits and helmets. We're in doublets and period garb and no helmets, swashbuckling basically.
And I have a tendency to win ;D
Awesome fun!
I encourage anyone to look up their local chapter and see what fun they can take part in.
It's like a Renaissance festival on crack o.o

A warning to those who LARP, and are intruiged by the SCA; they hit much harder; they don't use boffer, but rattan (bamboo) and you need real armor. Your helm is suddenly going to weigh about 12 pounds. And you'll need it!

A warning from personal experience to Scadians going LARP; they don't like it when you whack them upside the head!

What realm are you, Genekitty? I am/was Malagentia until my second job cut into my time.

Realm?
It was the Kingdom of Ansteorra, under The Barony of Bryn Gwlad.
Aka..
Austin, Tx :P

And I don't think anyone like being hit upside the head :P
But I stay away from the big bastard sword fights and stick to fencing. :D
And archery.
Tis fun ^0^

I have LARP:ed twice in my life so far (In Sweden, where I live, but it took place near Västerås and I live in Stockholm) and it was two parts of the same story line (they have 2 sessions of the story each year, one in the spring and one in the fall). It's medieval themed, takes place in the woods where there are 2 rival human nations fighting for control of 2 cities seperated by a very long road with a huge forest in between. In the forests you have major orc forts/camps and elves and drows and tons of that stuff.
It was freakin' awesome, what I was fascinated by the most is how everyone can affect the story line as you RP, and it's not -only- based on pre-arranged events.
First time I just played a simple robber with some friends, hiding next to a road and robbing people all day (the LARP is a 5-day-event), the 2nd time we wanted to try something else, so we were 10 people, sort of like an independent mini-army serving whichever nation pays most. But we changed rolls during the night, the first and the last night we and some other people were undeads who basically came there as the first day let all the newcomers get some bofferin' done, get a feel for some fighting (it was arranged, and we were supposed to lose) and the last night it was just a boffer-fest so everyone could get that last piece of war-feeling out before heading home the next day (also arranged, and undeads supposed to lose).
One day I accedently bumped into a guy I knew IRL and I joined him one evening as an orc. And I think that if I manage to have enough cash for a full set of orc gear, I will prolly be orc next fall as well. :))
