My only real experience with playing Vampire was a Dark Ages LARP, where the guy running it was a good friend who told me, "Hey, I need some guys I trust to play the high powered NPCs". I agreed and got handed a character sheet labeled "Lancelot".

Yeah, that sounds about like most Vampire LARPs. GMs and their buddies running demigods, the little people playing by the rules. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/wink.gif)

Every Vampire game I've ever heard of was a LARP. Didn't anyone play it around a freaking table?


I only ever played it around a table.

Well, two car chases in London. One ended up with my character's BMW totaled, an Assamite flung through the windshield of his car and passenger side door, hitting my character and tossing her out along with the driver side door. Then we had a scuffle on the road, my character shot the Assamite's eyes out and got hit by acid barf while escaping (Assamite wasn't too thrilled about being temporarily blinded), luckily most of it landed on the leather jacket which I promptly ditched.
During another one, I had to drive the Prince's Mercedes as a decoy. Blue Oni's character (who can't shoot) managed to stop the pursuing car with a shotgun (a slug to the radiator works wonders (IMG:style_emoticons/default/nyahnyah.gif) ).
Then there was the incident where I tried to run over a demon using a dump truck. I never expected that the truck would flip through the air and land wheels-up on a fountain.
And bailing out of the tenth floor of Warsaw Marriott Hotel, then making a run for it into the tunnels under Central Station. Yes, there was a Nosferatu hideout there, as to be expected.

That can't be LARPed. But it's epic.

I think it's pretty hilarious that most of the vampires look all chic and artsy. Goddamn, if I were a vampire who was 100 years old, I think I'd have better things to do than go through the trouble to look like an affluent clubbing 20-something.


Vampires are as vain as everyone else (or even moreso), and if you have the means... (IMG:style_emoticons/default/smile.gif)

Besides, it is a useful way to keep the bloodflow steady. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/wink.gif)

Bye
Thanee

"Ahh, dammit, I got syphillis in my bloodflow again! I thought we were through with that crap in the 70s!"

EDIT:

Or, since you're actually centuries old,

"Zounds! 'Tis the French disease, I taste it distinctly, in the blood of this, this...'clubber'!"

Of course, most importantly, it was a way for White Wolf to appeal to their chosen demographic, and make their gamers feel like trendy club-hopping cool kids, instead of just another bunch of gamers.

The game is worth playing through on a Malkavian at least once for the really amusing work they put into the crazy. Like the TV news broadcaster talking to YOU and having a conversation with a stop sign. NO YOU STOP!
