What Is LARPing? – Watch more free videos

If you are not a nerd and you still do this, you are wasting your time.

Still, it looks like a lot of fun. It is an investment of time and energy that I refuse to make. It’s like the question of whether I should spend an evening blogging or studying for a midterm. Surely the blogging was quite pleasant or satisfying for a time but I tell you the truth if I studied properly in preparation for a midterm examination I probably would not be awake right now writing this.

I’d almost bet money that this won’t be a source of entertainment for anybody but myself at some point in the farther future, because tomorrow sixty-something people will skim this site out of various accidents and will not actually read this, let alone appreciate it; they probably won’t have watched the video, either.

I don’t feel bad or resentful about this.

I won’t bet that money; I don’t have the money to bet.

LARP stands for Live Action Role Playing and it stands in contrast, definition-wise, to table-top role playing, like Dungeons & Dragons, where the action and adventure and the visuals of all of it exist on imaginary palettes wedged firmly in the players’ heads. Beyond that the specifics of LARPing are beyond my experience and knowledge and they shall remain that way.
