I think I've made more costumes for NERO than anything else...
Its a live action RPG kind of like D&D... I'm hooked. I have some pics in my costumes list of it.
So, let me know if you play too!

I tried it once ,but I am sca so I hit too hard, so I decided to bag it.For me to train for that as well would throw me off my sca fighting, so I decided it was better to do one then suck at both.

I can't wait to go to my first NERO game! My friend's been wanting me to go for a while now!
I'm a LARP-er in a college based group called AOKP(artorian order of the knights of pendragon), but I haven't done any by the NERO rule system.
I'm not terribly fond of any sort of point system while LARP-ing, I guess. My group does more of a "level" thing, where accomplishing certain things gives you the ability to use more weapons, hold regency positions...and other such "extras". Your character depends a lot on how well tou can act and fight. So there's nothing ridiculous happening like a little weakling being the best fighter, just because he brought enough snacks and volunteered enough to gain enough hit points. I guess we play it more like improv theatre with a number of long ongoing stories going on all the time, and not as a strict rule based LARP.
Anyway, I love it. We are more forgiving with accuracy and stuff too - there's a pictue of my knighting sword in my gallery. It looks like a dead fish(though I'm the only one with anything that ridiculous - everyone else has pretty respectable looking ductapey weapons).
