Whacking strangers with a stick is not exactly our definition of LARPing.
A 16-year-old was playing free fantasy game League of Legends recently when a strange need overtook him. Apparently, after two days straight of playing the game, the young man abruptly left the Internet cafe where he was playing. His destination? The grassy fields nearby, where he located a stick.
Shortly thereafter, the boy began thwacking random passers by with his newfound weapon, all the while shouting, "for Demacia!"
It is unknown what compelled this strange action, but, fortunately, no one was seriously injured, serious face-palming that occurs when anyone hears this story notwithstanding.
