    live action role play, you dress up like your d&d character, with your d&d croonies and play "cowboys and indians" with eachother.

Some LARPers will go so far as to pretend to have magic powers.

    For example.

    Someone was making fun of a video of LARPers and I simply noted that they participate in all the same behaviour LARPers do.
