Blood points. Did he say "Eat another jew?" at 1:20? I think I'd enjoy this game.
buttnutt
Yes

It's a well known fact that vampires are horrible anti-semites.

JackDenials
Not really, buttnutt, but Jews have a richer blood.

I was wondering if it was going to be the LARPers I knew, but it's not.
Fun Fact: According to my LARPer Friends the Rock/Paper/Scissors is used because White Wolf wanted to make a combat system that was so stupid people would say "This is stupid! How about we make our own rules that determine wether or not it's a hit." but people actually liked using R/P/S and so now they're stuck with it. Also, there might have been conflicts as to national rules vs. local rules. But it was implied that mainly it was because R/P/S was so stupid they didn't think anyone would actually use it.
Vampire: The Masquerade(or Requim, or whatever it's called now) LARPers are actually pretty cool people. Well, OK, they're not, but they're very strange and fun to hang out with as long as you don't interrupt their precious Game. I'm a proud Table-top roleplayer and this is just too dorky for me, fun to watch with the right people, but way too dorky.

There's an internal nerd heirarchy most people may not be aware of. Slightly below this are the Ren Fair guys who yell 'fireball' at each other. There was a flow chart. I've forgotten where it is.

To be completely fair, even though I've known enough Vampire LARPers to want to tactical nuke them all, a hierarchical system like rock paper scissors is perfect for this kind of thing. Of course, it's still pretty retarded.

Camonk
I've heard there's some groups who prefer... staredowns. LARPing is not quite the stupidest thing I've ever heard of, but only because I live in America.

cognitivedissonance
As a man who has accepted several paychecks for various duties involved in Vampire: The Requiem, they're not ALL stupid. Just the ones who LARP are.

pastorofmuppets
the fuck is "white wolf"

pastorofmuppets
nevermind I thought white wolf was a very influential LARP person rather than a company

The chart cleaner mentions can be DLed from here:

It's amazing.

Fatty, fatty, fatty, fatty, fatty, odd skinny guy off by himself, fatty.
Also, if you haven't already, I highly recommend looking up the issue of "Critical Miss" where the guy tries Vampire LARPing.
baleen

You missed a really good opportunity to go "fatty fatty fatty fat 2-3-count!"

petep
i'm actually a vampire
Doctor Arcane
Buy some airsoft or something. I think they're missing the 'A' out of their LARPing experience.

Based entirely on my limited experience with kids I knew in college who did this, the reason they used finger-guns and whatnot instead of bringing toy guns was mainly because a bunch of goth kids running around a parking lot/church basement/whatever with guns pretty much has to end with the cops showing up.

BRIEF VAMPIRE LARP LJ: I knew some kids who did this. They played in a local museum, which is actually pretty cool.

badideasinaction
Seconding Hooper_X here - mostly it was optics. Actually, I would kind of prefer it this way since I'd prefer people willing to look a little dumb over guys who would inevitably show up better armed than Rambo to try and look cool. Making them point their fingers takes 'em down a notch or four.

Brief Vampire Larp LJ - I did this for a bit. Then I realized I had more interesting and fun weekends in real life than I did in pretend life, and was just roleplaying being bored for much of the time, so I stopped.

Well, do you know how scrupulous vampires feed on chickens? These guys actually fry their chickens first.

Desidiosus
Too much Jewish blood.

I've never done this and I'm going to brag about it.

bongoprophet
pretty much

chumbucket
so uh, this is all fun and everything guys but like when are the strippers coming?
minimalist
Collared shirts? Dress shoes? TIES?

Does... does an entire workplace gather after hours, lock down the office, and do this? What company would do such a thing? Is it some sort of trust-building exercise?
zatojones
I'm gonna guess they're trying for the "refined aristocrat" look they assume a thousand year old vampire would affect, but since they themselves are dumpy and uninspired they end up looking more like generic office workers than the debonair undead. The fatness doesn't help either.

Cleaner82
I assumed they were bored after a wedding reception or something. Don't those dresses that are holding in the hambeasts look a little dressy for work?

minimalist
Zato's most likely right, I was thinking along those lines as well.

Really, though, I was mostly amazed that there isn't a single airbrushed wolf/dragon XXXL t-shirt to be seen, nor anyone dressing like a "wacky, random" Malkavian.

UnderANeonHalo
I get harassed by LARPers at dragon con every year because I'm a huge goth fag and they dig my "look". They seem to be very lonely people, generally speaking.

What is this? Glorious undead parading in finery? Oh, no, wait, it's chubbified IT professionals wearing what they think are good interview clothes.

theSnake
They make the skinny guy stand in the corner.

This is what happens that makes them tell those "hilarious" stories about that time Darkmage totally tripped when he was mid-battle with Etheria Shade. And then they all laugh and jiggle, because that's the greatest thing that's ever happened to any of them ever.

We have a LARP group by my campus and I have to go past them now and then. They're a bunch of the most enormous, most disgusting people I've ever seen, and the SMELL, my god. They must be roleplaying the vampire's fear of water.

Yes, I've noticed this too.
