Ars: And the battle we were headed to was Bellum Aeternus I, a fantasy combat and live-action role-playing (LARP) event hosted by the Darkon Wargaming Club. Nearly 500 participants were set to gather in a Maryland field for a weekend festival of virtual carnage. Darkon’s officers hope that Bellum Aeternus will grow into an annual gaming event that draws fantasy and combat enthusiasts of all kinds from across the country—or at least from across the Mid-Atlantic, the cradle of padded weapon combat gaming.
What a bunch of fucking nerds man. Gathering together dressed in medieval costumes, hitting eachother with foam swords and shit. I guess it’s at least exercise. Better than fat people can say. At least these nerds are getting some fucking sun instead of looking like straight up vampires.
OK, seriously. This game looks pretty fun. Not gonna lie. Would I give up a Saturday for it? Yup, probly would. Would I tell my friends that I did it? Nope, for sure not. Actually fuck it, my friends totes would want to go too. You know what? I may just find out where the next LARP battle is going on. Glen Bernie, MD isn’t too far from where I live. Start my own kingdom bitches. Our flag will be a black flag with a boss white and navy blue dragon on it. Or maybe a sexy naked chick with flames coming out her tits or something.
