Ironshod and the dragon by Ironshod Ironshod and the dragon by Ironshod
I am one of those crazy people that does larp. For those of you who don't know, this involves dressing up in medieval/fantasy costume, hitting each other with rubber weapons, camping and general having fun! :)

I went away to a big event that was held here in the UK last weekend, and met a dragon! How cool is that - lol ;)

I don't larp... but I had a teacher who introduced me to IFGS, and I got hooked. I have a half human/half dragon character, lvl 2, and I can't wait to play another game :D

Found a pic! Stumbled on this on Deviant; [link] It's not a very good one, but it's one none-the-less! Trust me, the picture didn't do him justice. I had asked him if I could take him home with me, but he said no... *tear* :,(

this picture of larping reminds me of a sca event a little, though there would not be a fellow dressed up like a dragon. that's what we call our motor vehicles.

Ok, here was me thinking that larping with gambeson, maille & plate was unbearably hot (to the extent that it is not to be repeated - I'd rather rack up extra bruises), but that guy must have been dying!
