Anyone here larp-ed before? How did it go? How dressed up were you?

Visiting a medieval faire makes me want to try a LARPG

Nah, for that i prefer HEMA, that way i actually learn how to fight with swords and such and not just hit people with nerf sticks.

Or you can take the middleground.


Ive only ever heard bad things about larps. Like theres usually a group of friends who are the main characters and if you get in you are usually just given the job of being a goblin or some shit and everyone will get pissy if you actually kill anyone.



holy shit anon dont murder people its just fighting for fun



Oh. I guess that would explain it.



There's a huge sunk cost element to some of these LARP events. You definitely get cliques of people who have been going for years, building up their characters and becoming King Shit of Fuck Mountain. Even if you have every reason to kill off someone else's character, they'll still be salty about it. Not Dark Dungeons "NOT BLACKLEAF NOOOOO!!" salty, but still.. Then again, people who LARP purely for social reasons and attach intense emotional investment into their characters tend to be fags, and the kind of LARPs that reward and foster that high school popular kids clique bullshit tend to be prissy pseudo-goth Vampire/World of Darkness shit, anyways. So, fuck those people.



Broken bones and scars are pretty common in HEMA. It's why they stress actual martial arts training and legit gear, and not just boffer dicksword tap-tagging fights. But no one who does HEMA seriously will be socially pissy or hostile over some bumps and bruises.


Played in one a few years back. It was actually a lot of fun, with more of an emphasis on fighting and team tactics than magic. Most of us were too poor for anything more than a shield and a sword. a couple people went balls deep and bought armor, or made chainmail. There was just enough diversity to the weapons to keep things interesting each melee, and a few archers to make sure everyone's heads were on a swivel. It was mostly broken into nations/factions, so you'd either group up with one of them, or you'd stick it out as a nomad. Plenty of events and different games to keep things interesting, with lots of locations to pick where you wanted a battle or event to happen. I don't regret the time I spent doing it. We had a few camping trips as well, where there's a general big overarching story going on, but plenty of time to break off, and screw with other camps. It was fun. I don't regret it. We didn't really have any drama tho, so your mileage may vary.


If you want to LARP, do slav LARP.

It's like hitting your friends with a metal pipe covered in foam. Except there's no foam and you're all drunk.

I LARP, I do fantasy and post-apocalyptic. Pic related. I've been doing it for over 10 years at this point, it's great and I love it.

That being said, I live in Germany, and German LARP (European LARP in general it seems) is far superior than what I've seen from America.

So.. best LARP is a no/low-magic campaign?



Yes. Because a guy throwing around hacky sacks while yelling "fireball" doesn't do much to help with immersion.

Everything else at least looks more or less like the "real" thing, but good luck doing that with magic. Maybe if you specifically set out to create a system with magic that's easily recreatable with modern technology. Like yelling "Light" and then turning on a flashlight hidden in your robe.



Depends on how much effort you put into magic. I've seen people using everything from a mix of steam and LEDs to actual pyrotechnics.



This, the stories about the Russian LARP group were pretty awesome, sadly I lost the link to them.



That would be in the "How to Elves well" thread, if you can find the archive.



Found it thanks. https://pastebin.com/QEnqsDFA

What could go wrong....


I euro-larped once when I was 15. Got my green-skin fetish from sharing camp with a pair of qt girls playing forest sprites.

One of them got caught and LARP fairy-onaholed by orks. That would never happen nowadays.



>LARP fairy ona-holed by orks

How far did the "larp" go, anon?



They took her to camp, tied her to a tree for a few hours, then let her go after the boss did the OOC sign and said "we've gangraped you by the way."

Sorry to disappoint.

I'll just assume that you are trying to get someone else trolled. No human being who uses the internet longer than half a year would be dumb enough to post pictures of himself here.



You dont show up at a LARP without being ok with the idea of people taking pictures

if anyone has any questions about Danish LARPing then I'm open to hear 'em

agreed - but in a lot of LARPs its a moot point, since you're usually not allowed to hit people in the head for safety reasons


Go touch yourself with sand-paper.


While that looks nice, then it just screams "I had daddy's creditcard for a few months, look what I bought"

Nah, LARPing is great fun. Pull of epic pincer manouvers - replicate Shaka Xulu's Bull Horn strategy with a combined greenskin charge of a goblin shield wall and orcs for the flankers. Great fun!

Even if its just a few hundred people, then when you're in the thick of it... oh boy that shit is amazing. You never know if there'll be a monster out, or if you'll run into two maidens with but one chalice.

Lots of fun to be had indeed :)



>, since you're usually not allowed to hit people in the head for safety reasons

Until VR larp happens then everyone rapid stabs everyone else in the head.

lol what a fag


I LARP everyday that I'm not depressed, does that count?



It was pretty fun, but then you come home, sleep on it, and realise you weren't the only one LARPing, but that there were some really autistic people there too. And that they tend to be in the same photos. And that you will be associated with them and that the cunt who took the photos tagged you in all of them on kikebook. Then you gulp and start preparing excuses for when your coworkers start asking you why is there a guy in a medieval-like fursuit standing next to you

Full-face helmets are your best accessory then.



>the boss did the OOC sign and said "we've gangraped you by the way."

So that happened frequently enough that the group had to organise a standard 'you just got gangraped' signal that everyone knew?



So do I. I use the advance alcoholism rules for it.


File: 9cff748ec2520bb⋯.jpg (36.96 KB, 289x384, 289:384, laius.jpg)


Have you never used an out of character sign before? Its just something stupid (like holding your pinky up or crossing your fingers or something) to let people know that what your saying doing is out of character (because you spend most of it in character in some games).

The gangraped sign is very different and involved shoving as many fists as you can into a paper sack until it breaks.

Speaking from experience?



Goblin slayer's helmet is 6/10 at best



But the fact that he wears one at all makes him leagues better than your average fantasy anime here.



Most people would not think of coming up with an OOC sign for gangrape, because when would you ever need that?



For gangrapes, duh.



How often are people getting gangraped at your LARPs that you need a specific sign for it?



I think the better question is what kind of shitty LARP you're in that doesn't have gangbangs at every meetup?



Ones without actual orcs, apparently.

Flashlight...I wounder how many flashes you could get out of the superbright highbeams if you happened to have a car battery and a headlight hidden in your robe. probably would add to the immersion when your robes caught on fire too.
