    A friend of mine has just told me that she's going larping, which then sparked a "who's the bigger nerd" debate, with me of course insisting its me although I am mortified as I've never done this so she's bested me there!

    This being an IT related forum potentially packed full of nerds and geeks I wondered, have you ever been larping before? If so, what was the theme and what did you make of it?
    I'm not sold on the idea although I'll try anything once, OK most things, OK a small few things I've researched heavily on the net first.

    Haven't done LARPing in the medieval sense (but have friends who're into it). However, I used to play a lot of Airsoft with all participants dressed up as soldiers or in SWAT gear, and shooting each other with realistic looking weapons that could fire 10-20 small plastic pellets a second for that lovely little stinging sensations XD
