While I’ve never actually gone LARPing myself, I have met my fair share of LARPers in my day. And if there’s one thing I’ve learned about them, it’s that they are very very cool. You can’t just walk up to a group of LARPers and gain immediate acceptance into their group. No sireeee. This “crew” is harder to break into than the Crips and Bloods combined. You have to earn their respect by fighting ogres and not-so-mythical Centaurs made out of papier mache and coat hanger wire. Or you could bring a box of Ho-Hos to one of their uber cool war gatherings and that will do the trick, too.
And, I know this one is old, but I am physically unable to not include this video in any post I make about LARPing. Please forgive me.
