Live Action Role-Playing is like role-playing, but people actually dress up and do the role-playing instead of rolling dice or typing.

LARPers are often known to write genre fiction, have a slightly off-kilter sense of style, and often are Theatre majors. You do not have to be a member of LARC (Live-Action Roleplaying Club) to be a LARPer, but it helps.

Mariko Toyoji has suggested that Model UN is a form of LARP called WARP (World Action Role-Playing).

Making fun of LARPers[edit]

For some reason, Knox thinks it's OK to make fun of LARPers. Even some professors take pokes at the community. This phenomenon should be studied. What makes a supposedly kind and accepting community turn into a bunch of jerks when it come to a large group of students role-playing in their own space on their own time?
