If LARP could best be characterized as "dressing up in capes and talking in funny accents," then I wonder if a WoW LARP couldn't be made to work. The obvious question is what you would do with your time. Even vampire LARPs tend to degenerate into a fang-filled dungeon romp, with very little difference from your average raid finder experience. With that in mind, couldn't a WoW LARP work even better, focused on the adventure, monster-killing, and odd faction aggression?
The WoW pen-and-paper roleplay games never really seemed to blaze new territory, but maybe that was the mistake. Maybe what we needed was live action, a chance to get out in the sun and talk in funny accents. What do you think, noble readers? Could a WoW LARP work?
