So, just wondering, has anyone here ever gone LARPing? I haven't, but it sounds kind of fun.
This one time my cousin, sister and i got all the kids in our townhouse area to have a huge stick fight. Was pretty fun. Closest ive gotten.
Sounds pretty fun. That's pretty hilarious btw.
NERF battles in the woods. =D
I've never had a full-scale nerf battle, but I own a few nerf guns.
I once made a bandoleer out of a belt and some tape. It was epic.
Yknow, 'till someone got it in the eye, parents were alerted and it ended.
Then it's HILARIOUS!
Oooph. I would imagine quite a few kids walked home with awful welts that day. =D
I KNOW! Kids are getting screwed up nowadays!
I used to go to this really redneck school, where we would get this massive hill made out of ice. We used to play this game where the objective was to fling others onto the ice.
Bonus points for headshots. XD
I lived on a farm, which was EPIC. Still do, actually. Man... I just made myself so nostalgic for the days of having my head ground against ice. :P
We used to grab people and send them down this icy slide down the bottom. Then laugh as it slammed into their groins...
It was glorious until it was done to me. :P
Isn't that what you said 4 days ago?
I didn't mention the testicle thing.
Then you should have just said, "...TESTICLES! That is all."
...TESTICLES! That is all.
TESTICLES! That is all.
Man, I need to say that more often!
In the winter, the ploughs at my elementary school built these huge Beaver-dam-height walls of packed snow. Whenever I was deemed socially fit enough to play with the other kids by the one holding popularity at the time, we would have the Super Smash Bros reenactments to end all Super Smash Bros reenactments. Since the object of the game was to try and beat the shit out of the other kids until they were knocked off the pile from either side, actually roleplaying as the characters was secondary, and almost non-existant. The only thing that made you any different from the rest of the mooks was the moves your used (FALCON BACKPUNCH!) and the weapons you used. (Ice Climbers threw ice balls... At your face!) Once Link broke an icicle sword over someone's head, (Actually knocked the poor bastard out!) a permanent end was put to that game... But not before I shoved him off. KIRBY IS AWESOME!
Closest I've ever been was a few years ago, 9-12 years of age, we were the "War Club". Here are the rules:
1. Nobody TALKS about War Club. Just kidding, but it would have been fucking awesome if that were the case.
2. One hit from any weapon will kill you, to respawn, you have to head back to a friendly fort.
3. There are four "forts" (pretty makeshift, but we were able to pretend they were at least WWII bunker quality.) Team 1 has the fort that's furthest away from Team 2's fort, and the other two are conquered and owned by whichever team has the most living members at. If all your forts are taken, you lose.
4. You are only allowed to use fake (toy) weapons that have been tested by the others and deemed "Real enough to know that you were hit, but not enough to really hurt."
5. Scopes are overpowered, if you're going to bring a far-shooting nerf gun, you have to aim it yourself.
6. If someone stealth-kills you, they have to whisper "Stealth kill" to you when they do it. You're not allowed to do a dramatic death scream when you're being stealth-killed. Obviously, you can't stealth-kill very well using ranged weapons, which supposedly represented the loudness of real guns, unless the person you shot was kind enough to make quiet choking noises instead of screaming in fake agony.
I had some good times, lots of war stories and fake PTSD.
That sounds... ...AMAZING!!! I now know what I want to do with my life for the next two months/weeks/days/hours.
The problem is sometimes stealth ops can get so damn proud of themselves that they start sounding like the guy in an action movie who says 'POW!' every time they do a signature uppercut. I assume they were the ones who went on to invent the Spy glitch in TF1.
I noticed a lot of people ban scopes in their Nerf-Gun wars. At least the ones I've read about and occasionally participated in.
I still do this with my friends in Aus. We set up missions, zombie apocalypses and other such things to participate in. Hell, we even remade TTT from GMod.
I wish I had my own personal desert to play in as a kid :(
I wish I could have snow :( lucky Brit... It's nice and cool up there...
One time a kid brought a headcrab plushie... If he hit someone on the head when he threw it at them, or snuck up behind them and put it on their head, they would be "Controlled" and forced to fight for that guy's team. It was glorious!
That is amazing.
Not quite as amazing as the other kid who used Mario Kart shit as actual power-ups. He became the Mushroom Medic with those stuffed mushroom toys, since they were used as lives in other games and you can't really get a good speed boost in real life. Goombas and Bombs were instant death, of course, and if you stepped on one of the (real) banana peels, those would also kill you. (you might be spared, assuming nobody saw you stepping on it, or someone already stepped on it.) Sadly, we never had a Nintendo Vs. Valve war, since the kids were never at the same war together. But that would have been fucking awesome! I can just imagine LARP Demoman and LARP Bowser duking it out in the woods where we fought.
How often did you do this?
Once every week was the average rate, whenever our parents were able to bring us to this friends' house, since he had that epic forest in his yard. (#RuralChildhoodFTW) The rate was increased whenever this friend or his sibling had a birthday and they invited us all. Then he moved out and that rate went to zero.
I haven't been myself, though it seems like it'd be a cool thing to do. I prefer paintballing and airsoft though...
Where I live, we play paintball in three feet of snow. It's pretty awesome.
I've only ever been "paintballing" once. It was one of the best experiences I've ever had outside of video games.
Yeah, it kicks ass, though it sucks when you get shot in the back 50 times in quick succession and not a single damn paintball pops XD that fucking hurts...
I was actually very good at it. I guess it comes from my skill in FPS games... Anyway, I rarely got shot and my team almost always won. Except for when we played against some professionals.
I blamed my team for our losses, considering half of them were first-timing women against pros... It was hell. But really fun.
yeah, I can't wait to go again.
Hate those guys.
I once went to a renactment of D-Day in paintball, with five hundred people. It was chaos. They had fireworks going off, and smoke grenades being thrown.
Basically what Killa said, when I was younger I used to do that a lot. Boffer-swords were the best :D
It's pretty cute to watch my little brother LARP with his friends do it now though.
Paint balling is the closest thing, but my friends and I used to play a game where the "zombies" had to break into the house and kill survivors with nerf swords while the survivors had nerf guns. It was awesome when we got enough people. Especially once the survivors started running out of bullets.
I also played capture the flag in the forest once in a huge forest for like 2 hours where we hid the flag and then used guerilla warfare tactics to win. Eventually after tagging got boring, we decided on a mode where you had to pin both shoulders down for 5 seconds to tag someone.
Seems gay as fuck
And...? Details, fool!
Kinda lost all reason to once I could do it anonymously online.
1. Asuna! great anime choice
2. Yes I have been larping multiple times.
I thought that looked familiar. I just started SAO 4 days ago, so naturally I'm on episode 11.
You still got like 30 episodes (Counting SAO season 2)
I haven't started watching season 2 yet...
Stop while you can, that show is horribru
I thought you liked it?
Everyone's entitled to their opinion. Even if it sucks. Except for you; you're opinion is horrid. JK, JK.
Just wait till they "adopt" that bug.. if you don't feel like punching the screen after watching that I dunno
I hated that part as well. I felt like, through that whole part of the show, they were just trying to make it last a bit longer and throw in some homey romance to attract more viewers. In fact, they did stuff like that a lot throughout the whole show, but never quite that badly.
Thing is that the show has basically become just that and it's laughable. *POSSIBLE SPOILERS* Like seriously, he has a special ability for no fking reason and is even able to force the creator of the fking game to cheat... wtf man? And it's never explained why.
Though the best part is at the final episode of the 2nd arc when he actually gloryphies the maniac who trapped thousands of people in a video game which caused most of them to die.
They explain all that. (Though it is in much more detail in the books). Also he was glorifying him he was just comparing him to the second manic in front of him. You would probably like the second season a bit more because Kirito has some series PTSD from killing players in SAO that he has to deal with. If you like the idea in the first one you would probably like Log Horizon more. Same concept except they can respond and they don't know how to leave.
My friend told me to watch that after sao
I'll check Log Horizon out
Just saw that. That description is acurate.
The only thing I hated about it were the time skips. All the time skips just annoyed the shit out of me.
Yeah, those sucked. There was so much that could've been added in. I felt like we missed part of the "feel" of being in the game because of those skips. Not to mention all the potential story.
I hate to say this but...The books did it better.
That's cause the novels start at level 50 or something and the early things were random volumes, like a flash back
1. Yes, yes it is.
2. Tell me how it went, please.
I had a great time granted it was a club in my highschool. So we had a lot of time of set up and story building then we had a huge war at a local elementry school. I was Braum a half-demon working with the mercinary group everlaid. We fought the assiasn merlake.
We pretty much killed each other techinclly we did because being a half demon I could resurect once and my leader only lost one arm. So there was only two people alive me and our guild leader.
