If there's money to be made, I might be giving it another shot. >.>
I had a pretty good system for making the rings, just putting them together was so mind numbing.

I had a good idea once, like 5 years ago. >.>

Also, as far as the LARP armor goes, think geek used to carry the helm from Gladiator. Sadly they don't seem to anymore. :(

That's a bummer :(

The only thing I can think of now when I think LARPing is the "lightning bolt! lightning bolt! lightning bolt!" video xD

Haha, I can tell. I mean, I can understand the appeal in theory, but in practice, throwing tiny foam bolts at people and yelling "lightning bolt!" just doesn't seem as satisfying as wearing armor and smacking them with a foam sword.

I always thought it'd be more fun to LARP in a post-apocalypse setting.
It would eliminate the silliness of spellcasting.

Plus, you could call yourselves "Preenactors." =P
I don't think he needs to be immortal. I think all he needs to do is to write the right story. Because some stories do live forever.
