Being a big fan of D&D, LARP-ing has always been a serious curiosity of mine. I hope someday to actually try it for real as it’s become quite popular over the years. However what is the real reason why it’s gotten so much attention? To me it’s apparent that it’s an easy thing to poke fun at.

Take a look for yourself.
This video now gets me all stoked like watching Lord of the Rings. But what can I say, I’m a sucker for fantasy adventure stories, especially when they involve medieval funk grooves. Who is this “Chris Dane Owens”? I did a little research and this is what I found out. Continue reading
