Here’s a simple equation to help illustrate our point:

Geeks+cardboard weapons+delusions of grandeur+pent-up frustrations=“Hey, look, EMTs!”

For the record, this doesn’t apply for all geeks, but never is there ever not that one guy or gal in a LARPing session who takes things way too seriously and way too far. We’re not saying you can’t pretend to be Zorbelex, Dark Son of the Blood King, just—for everyone else's sake—don’t blur those lines between reality and fantasy... please?
