I've LARPed. Was in the Netherlands, so it was pretty different from what I always see on the internet.
>Proper safety-certified weapons cost a small fortune but tend to look pretty kickass, they also take up more time in keeping maintained than actually being used for LARP
>Costumes range from "This guy just quickly grabbed some shit, use your imagination" to "This asshole had way too much time on his hands and way too much skill with a sewing machine". Can either get expensive or time-consuming craft wise.
>There's a 'balance' between combat and RP. Heavy quotation marks. Sometimes it feels like combat is severely lacking, sometimes you wish the GM crew would think of something more original than fucking skeleton waves every 15 minutes

The GM crew tend to be assholes, imagine the normal flaws a DM could have in D&D and apply that to LARP. Characters have been fucked over for bullshit reasons. Playing an NPC one game made me realise just how fucking dirty and underhanded it gets in the GM crew's discussion bunker.

It's fucking expensive, takes up your entire weekend and forces you into shitty lodging with shitty food that you'll no doubt pay way too much for. (It's usually something really fucking cheap, 'cause fuck proper catering!) You spend a weekend trudging through some awful fucking forest in your LARP gear. Fuck your life if you have an uncomfortable costume. Plate armour? Bitch, please! And those stains will never go out of your robes unless you got laundry magic, wizard. And if some shitty skeleton kills you, guess where you're going to lay down.

Also NEVER play anything that requires any form of 'ingredients' that need to be collected. You'll ALWAYS be fucked over in the end, never worth taking.

Go outdoors walking if you love nature that much, and play tabletop games or MMOs if you're that addicted to fantasy gaming. But LARP was just a regrettable experience for me.

I larped with OWbN (one world by night) which was a big Larp community before Minds Eye Theatre became the sanctioned organization. It was still a big community by the time I got into it. I had fun, but I got a lot of gripes with it. It's kind of like a sad, awkward need parade run by people that were never popular in the slightest bit as teens and have finally found an outlet for all their social agresstion and posturing. Its like bizzarro prom night, unpopular awkward people are social giants that have lowbies kissing their butts, kinda gnarly girls are sexual goddesses doted on by a harem of thirsty neckbeards, old goths make fun of all of the shinanigens around them while failing to see the hypocrisy of taking part, cats marrying dogs.

Over all, though, if you like tabletop (the tribe I am from) it is some interesting anthropology. I did it for about a year, became pretend important myself and then quit. I prefer tabletop for sure, because the actual "game" aspect is pretty weak. Most of the time it's like the world least exciting, worst acted vampire movie. But sometimes it'd be fun, and some of the people had good acting/role play chops and you'd be able to have some cool character moments. Bright spots shining in a fog of mediocrity.

Oh, and as free advice to anyone that wants to get into it: this is probably fairly obvious, but these cliques tend to get fairly insestious, so I'd avoid getting physical with anyone involved. They probably have a dramatic and storied sexual history with like two other people in the troupe and you'd just be going down a dangerous road of crazy if you try to dip your pen in that ink. I avoided that shit in my time Larping and my experience was all the better for it.

As a student practicing HEMA I am not allowed to LARP, I'd be disqualified for pretty much any method of striking. Historical European martial arts and the German Fechtbuchs focus on proper spear play, fencing, hand to hand, and wrestling amongst other great bits of knowledge. All of which would have me immediately disqualified if I tried to implement these tactics as there isn't much I'd be able to utilize without heavy physical contact such as thrusting or stabbing motions.

The rules in LARP prevent me from being able to wear my own suit of armor or utilize my training. I would have to "earn" the ability to wear the armor I paid for, and after several months of larping I could maybe wear my pauldrons and cuirass but still not my full set. Most of larping really sucks, but there are some good ones. I've seen some plastic lightsaber and Nerf gun battles themed after starwars where the "Sith" larp team will wear black hoodies and such to represent their faction and oppose the other normally clad folks representing Rebels and Jedi. They love to battle until their little plastic light sabers break.

The coolest I hear is in Europe where they have post apocalyptic themed LARP battles that utilize paintball guns and masks. You make your own fallout raider armor and go nuts with paintball guns playing in teams. Mock firefights in Mad Max raider gear would be more fun than getting banned because I decided to parry and thrust with a foam sword. The only other "larpers" like that I see often are the Military bros who show up in full gear to do airsoft or paintball as teams in the Desert and those can get pretty heated... No pun intended.

The LARP itself was fucking awful, by the way. Horrible location, character got fucked over hard because of Plot Crew neglect and I quit the event early. Haven't ever bothered LARPing again, the only way I'd try again involves a complicated plan that honestly doesn't feel like it'd be worth the time, money & effort.

That stupid idea is still in the back of my mind, but there's no way it'd be worth the money to try and craft all my LARP gear myself. LARP is only worth it if the organizers aren't complete cunts, and quite frankly I'm not convinced that any of them are normal in the head.

Things I've learned from the LARP events I went to.

  • Always carry at least one one-handed weapon. "But I want to play a pacifist/non-combat cha-" No. Regardless of what you want to play, the storytelling crew tends to be unoriginal and can't think of many challenges that aren't frustrating puzzles or combat. Unless you're a cripple/fogey and completely unfit to fight, you're going to end up in a fight at least once.
  • If you play an alchemist/trader/scholar, always have a back-up plan and prepare to get screwed out of resources. Once again, always carry a weapon for emergencies. Swords are cheap, your fun isn't.
  • Group up! Never go alone, always have at least one buddy with you. Distrust the game crew if you're a player. The game crew just wants to entertain themselves by fucking with the characters' comfort and safety. If your character isn't a hot shot focus of the main story, you're not safe.
  • Preparation is key. Depending on the location and duration of the event, you might want to just pack as if you're going camping. I'm talking the 'outdoors shower in a bag with tent and pillow/blanket' kind. Hell, I'm going to be a kind soul next time and carry extra emergency gear for other people.
  • Dress in-game like you're going camping as well. Waterproof, easy to clean, easy to get in and out of, good for all types of weather. You're going to hate yourself if you have to drag your ass through a rainy forest in plate armour. A good in-game backpack or an outfit with inside pockets will serve you well.
  • A churchwarden pipe with cheap brown weed will make an inconspicuous way to get high at an event where you should really get high to have fun.

Also a word of advice: Sites like Wish tend to sell all kinds of useful stuff for outfits and accessories. I've cobbled together a quick outfit, didn't cost me more than €80. I've got doubts about the sword though, I'm pretty sure it's not LARP-approved but if it IS it's only 10 for a proper weapon compared to those jackass LARP vendors trying to rip you off with 60 for a single sword.

I still need to buy things like a proper tent and a mobile power generator, but those are long-term investments.

I've looked into making LARP weapons that don't look like absolute shit, and it's pretty much a hobby on its own. (Perfect because there's quite some silent periods in between LARP games.)

Let's say you just joined a LARP and you need a weapon. What's your preferred choice? Any fancy models you've seen online that you'd want to see in real life foam/latex?

Blacksmithing is just forging steel. Artifice is making objects infused with magic that can serve all kinds of purpose and generally replace modern technology in a high fantasy setting.

Eberron's Artificer from D&D is the closest example I can give.

Magitek is essentially the answer to all problems in high fantasy. If magic is scarce or hard to learn then it explains a lot. If there's some sort of dark age then sure. But if the spells your average L1 D&D character had were commonplace it'd solve issues. There has to be some reason like the bad guys misuing magic, the new high age just started, magic is feared or summons demons or something for a society not to become like modern society once you have access to even mid level magic. If a L5 druid can increase the output of a farming town hugely by themselves, and cure illness, information will be easily passed and replcated too so it is going to resemble modern society quickly. Which is admittedly how Eberron works, or Ravnica or even to a much lesser extent Sigil. It's what Terry Pratchett did to Ankh Morpork.

If I can find a cheap party tent I might even organize a Hearthstone Fireside Gathering at the LARP itself. There'd be something amazing about having a bunch of people dressed like knights, wizards & rogues play a card game from another universe on their phones/PCs.

On the contrary, in LARP there are plenty of people (or dragged-along spouses) who take up the healer role to either A) actually do shit without needing a foam weapon or B) feel important as everyone who learns of their skills flocks to them like hungry pigeons to stale bread.

But potions? Too complicated for the organisers/GMs to keep track off for common use so they're put behind a wall of tasks you have to do and impossibly hard to find/get ingredients.

That said, there are a thousand reasons why I fucking loathe LARP and that's one of them.

I used to back in college. Mostly New World of Darkness. We got one of the academic buildings all to ourselves one evening a week. I miss those days.

Battlegames/Bofferlarps liek Dagorhir get a bad rap for being "stick jockeys" and for having weapons that don't look super realistic, but the combat is so much better than any traditional LARP. The combat is nowhere near as restrictive, and you don't have any lame spells to deal with (depending on the game)
I hated LARP after realizing I couldn't thrust, shield bash, or grapple and had to pretend to get frozen by douchebags throwing sandbags. You're also encouraged to swing forcefully, no tap fighting allowed.
I thought I'd miss the roleplay, because events are mostly just several largescale battles, but frankly the roleplay was boring and shitty anyways.
My biggest problem is that most participants are lazy and have shitty garb, with no serious attempt to improve or understand actual historical clothing, but it was the exact same thing at every other larp anyways.
