I used to LARP. Hell, I even wrote an A-paper on the societal impact of LARP, tabletop RPGs, and the SCA on communities, and how it was more constructive to partake of those sorts of entertainment than it was for people to go to a movie. LARPing has been around for hundreds of years, and while today it's summarized as a nerd activity, it's really a classic form of expression.

I'm Mika (aka Ipstenu) and I'm complicated. I've been on the net since the days of dedicated terminals and Novation CAT modems and solved Missionaries and Cannibals (or Goats and Cabbages) before I was six, and blog about WordPress and technical/computer things at Half Elf on Tech.
