Documentary to Watch- Darkon

While most of us have heard of LARPING(Live Action Role Playing) and have engaged in it at some point in our life( don't tell me you never dressed up for Halloween) it is hard to imagine the logistics of making it a large part of your life. For all your LARPing questions and concerns is the film Darkon, a voyage into a role playing community. Relatively normal people with 9-5 jobs, spend their weekends as a Paladin or a dark elf casting magic missile at the nearest public park. This doc is excellent in its depth of explanation and shows how the motivations of people's characters in the game effect their real life relationships. Absolutely fascinating, check it out!
