rewatching their first video.
They count SCA nad reenactment as larp. That's one big redflag for me.
Also they say SCA uses real weapons.
Also the "categories" are all over the place. I get it that they didn't want to bore random people with proper definition but these categories are half part made up half part used by just a bunch of people. (For some reason every second US larper want to make new definitions for everything. I will never understand this)
Also totally forgets to mention that there are more than fantasy larps, only example that isn't about fantasy and "swordfight and princess fucking" is murder mistery.
Then you get the random people who got interviewed. If I never larped before I would now have a very strong opinion of NOT wanting to larp if these kind of people are there.
Let's see some of the points they make why they larp:
- I LOVE the darama
- I can wear piercings
- stupid accents
Then they promote larping.org
as a way to find larps. That site was out of date since forever. It was never really relevant.
Also in the very first video when they didn't put anything down on the table they already asking for patreon money.
And this is just the first video...
Now just to be fair some good points:
The video is good quality, technology-wise. Sound is also good. No problem with her speech you can understand what she says and no annoying giggles, mumbling and whatnot. She is obviously put more effort in this than the rest of the attention whores.
So the presentation was good, even great, but the content while not total shit it's still lacking in several points.
I would have said the DIY parts are probably good as I didn't really watch them just skimmed through but then I saw the foam sword DIY video and it's pretty much half assed...
