I know half of these people.
Well I thought I did...
On the up side...it's cheaper than Warhammer...
Blood points. Did he say "Eat another jew?" at 1:20? I think I'd enjoy this game.
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.
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.
nevermind I thought white wolf was a very influential LARP person rather than a company
The chart cleaner mentions can be DLed from here:
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.
You missed a really good opportunity to go "fatty fatty fatty fat 2-3-count!"
i'm actually a vampire

Buy some airsoft or something. I think they're missing the 'A' out of their LARPing experience.
I didn't know vampires bloated like ticks
Well, do you know how scrupulous vampires feed on chickens? These guys actually fry their chickens first.

5 stars for outing the sad larpers of poetv
so uh, this is all fun and everything guys but like when are the strippers coming?
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?
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.
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?
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.
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.
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.
.71428 of a star each for each wasted life in the room.
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.
Vampires aren't what they used to be

...actually, that one shows up on POETV with disturbing regularity.
Yes, I've noticed this too.
