The man has a point. Sure, you're not going to go clobbersaurus on each other with real blades, but for costuming purposes, you really can't beat the real deal. Fiberglass can look the part, but there's a tangible difference between fiberglass pauldrons and real metal ones.

Considering that LARP is a matter of immersion, it can play in heavily for people. I know I'd prefer the real deal when it comes to my costumes.

That was my point; not commenting on Euro-vs-American. I'm just saying that the closer to authentic, the better. Not only does it usually look better, but it has a much more realistic feel.

Even if it's not made to historical standards, making it out of actual metal and leather adds a lot to the look and feel of the gear.

"Better than shit" isn't really much of a compliment.

American Medieval LARP never really took off, past the pseudo-mythical "vampire coven" stuff that you read about (speaking of which, CSI had an episode about them folk...funny shit.) You want a good American fantasy LARP, good luck. Best looking one I've found to date it Knight Realms, in New Jersey (knightrealms.com). But being a southern Californian, I can't find anything that isn't pool noodle status.

You mention that Europe has a huge medieval history to call on for this stuff. That is so true; America never really had that sort of history. Now what America DOES have is a rich modern military history. I know this doesn't have much to do with /tg preferences, but there are many Military Simulation Airsoft groups (think: LARP with guns) that stress only the highest level of detail. One of the best is Operation Lion Claws (oplionclaws.com).

So for those of you who like MilSim LARP (like me), check this stuff out.

Most of your low-grade larps require very soft foam for weapons, which can also have no points or edges. They generally suggest putting a length of pvc pipe inside a common pool noodle, then wrapping up the bottom part (for a 'hilt')...and there ya go. A sword.

Believe me, while it is true, that there is some aluminum armor around, quite a lot of it is actually steel.

>>13358745

If I'm not mistaken, that "dick in a tshirt and jeans" is actually a GM. Since those guys have to be instantly recognizable, especially in the big fights, it's actually a good solution IMHO that the don't run around in costumes.

>>13358805

Yes, there are girls in "sexy" armor around. But hey, why not if they like it? Either their characters are so pumped up with magic that they don't need the armor anyway/ they are in a role, where the armor is just for show (fo example for ceremonial reasons) or their characters won't live long and they'll get the hint that sexy armor is stupid on the battlefield.

>> No.13359873

This thread saddens me, not because of the LARPers, but because of the number of people who, while being in love with table top fantasy games, look down upon people for choosing to play those same games in their own way. Honestly, the number of us in these kinds of hobbies is small enough as it is to be trying to alienate people for their way of partaking in them.

The main mistake most fa/tg/uys make is equating LRP to tabletop rpgs.

MORPGS and TTGs have similar traits, but are very different. Same applies to LRP and TTGs.

It can be a great hobby, with the right friends, events and people. But it's not Table Top Roleplay, and liking one doesn't mean you'll like the other.

You know that feeling that you get when you're embarrassed for someone else, because they're doing something utterly ridiculous/retarded/embarrassing? That's the feeling I get when I look at LARPers, to the point where it makes me cringe. It might be part of the reason why some people in this thread are so quick to pile on the hate, assuming they get a similar feeling when they look at LARPers.
