Yes, absolutely SHOCKED.
I don't see how you and this should be a surprise.
You said it yourself: these things attract all the weirdo's and misfits. What's next? ex-convicts and pimps and crack heads at bus stations?
Bah! Edit: Douglas said it better.
I learned early on, Douglas is a one man wrecking machine!
Getting into it was seamless. I had always grown up loving comic books, fantasy, and sci-fi, and I have always daydreamed about being in that kind of setting.
I honestly cant understand why it isn't more popular. If you strip away the costumes and setting, the fighting is extremely fun and great exercise. I've played soccer and other sports growing up, and nothing even comes close to the competitive nature or complexity of fighting with fake swords.
You're probably right. I was young and never saw that kind of abusive nature in anyone before.
What would be more humiliating, admitting to rape or LARPing?
Well, sorta funny.
I would be more humiliated admitting to be an SF'er
I dunno...if it weren't for many of the people that do it, it sounds a fucking blast. I could see a giant foam sword fight with my friends being fun (like medieval paintball)...maybe HBO will drive people to it with game of thrones.
same with things like dungeons and dragons...I've had a lot of fun playing in a couple of games and would love to play again, but that would first require me to find a game that has both a really good storyteller running the game and not a bunch of weirdos playing. The times I played in the past were always connected through some other pursuit so we were all cool with each other and we just happened to have someone who could run a game--trying to find people to play in a random game sounds like a recipe for weirdo disaster.
lol, there is some truth there. it could be fun, but the crowd it draws is clearly suspect to say the least.
Gfs friends dad is a sex offender. Kind of funny because he grew a big mustache for movember and he has really rapey blood shot eyes all the time and he looked just like fritzl. Didn't do anything nearly as disgusting as the man in the article did though.
Fritzl was just misunderstood...
It happens a lot to Austrian people.
How old is the man that you are squiring for?
I can't believe that this threak is real. I just can't. No way.
There's actually a sport for that. Fencing is awesome, and no roleplaying required. Lots of nerds at the lower levels, but the better people are good athletes.
sorry, not to highjack, but the whole idea of role playing strikes me as wierd. you want to hit people with a sword, fence. you want to wear tights? be a tranny. I just don't get the whole thing.
