Since we've not looked at larping as much i was just wondering if anyone knew of any say larping events we could attend at some point in our future ^^

Until further notice, our larping is frolicking about in my forest with sticks xD

I've researched it locally and there doesn't really seem to be anything. I'm sure there some rules we could find on the internet. And wandering around your forest with sticks sounds kinda fun! XP

One thing I know about airsofting: It's Call of Duty LARP.

But yeah, around the woods with sticks an' other stuff sounds like it could be a plan.

I've always seen LARPing as rather childish. But I'd give it a go and see if it can sway my opinion, certainly.

Larping is basically dungeons and dragons but live action and you ARE your character Razz

if you wanna see a good example of LARPing, check the movie 'Role Models'. One of the main characters (played by Mc Lovin from Superbad) plays a game called L.A.I.R, mostly running about and hitting people with foam covered weapons and wearing funny hats/capes but still looks like a laugh.

Role Models is the best movie in history.

An example of how the LARPing will not turn out, especially the incredibly camp Tirion Fordring impression.

AZAROTH, UNIIITTTEEE!

As I was saying irl before, and as came up in the vid with the weird beanbag spells, the magic is difficult. I thought about throwing tubes of glitter around...
I know the idea is that you RP it, but the melee characters get all the fun with LARPing! ><
