Geek Attack!
Geek Attack!

It would appear that the geeks are not as harmless as previously thought… Maybe the Hunters have a good reason to fear them?

For more speculation, check out this thread in the forums! It’s probably a bit more informative than anything I’d write here, because, well, jeez.. Like -I’M- going to give you guys any straight answers about the plot… yet. 😉

    i think the *geek hunters* need to rethink their point of attack…. and come to think of it… arent they being more geekish than the geeks themselves by attempting to hunt them down like you would in a few games that dont need to be mentioned..?

    Geekness…I guess I’m a were geek but.. hey..I’m old- 52..can we play at this larp..thing? Or is it only for the young and good looking?
    By the way..What does Larp mean?

    Agreed Allie, the geek hunters need to start to think. Assasins with nets isn’t the brightest way to kill geeks. But they are anti geeks, so can they think?

  9. I dunno. I like to think of them as being badly funded Hulk Busters. Hulk Busters with standard fedora/trench uniforms, nets, and the continual inability to remember that Bruce Banner *DOES* turn into that ten foot green monster they keep trying to kill.

    To truly complete this story for me, there need only be the words “GEEK SMASH!”

    I think, however, this bit of story does illustrate the way your typical hunters game ends. “Wait…what do you MEAN the vampire can bench press a station wagon? I thought…I thought he was just like some pretentious club jerk with fangs!”

    To be fair to these particular hunters, they seem to have come across a geek that truly is a threat (if provoked). Most geeks today would be taken down easily because their first reaction would be to log onto their blog and tell everyone that someone was trying to take them down rather than defend themselves. The Anime addicts would yell out any fighting move they were going to do before doing it, thus warning the hunters of what was to come. The roll players would be too busy looking for their dice bags (yes, I know that a good roll player always has their dice bag handy but how many gamers are really organized?). And the LARPers would be too worried about how to get their oufits cleaned to fight.

    Um, I am/was a geek (is there an age limit on geekdom?). When I thought I was being stalked (and I did have one for a while in college.) I tended to duck into a department store, go thru the maze and exit out the side, and then make a beeline to the comic store and safety.

    Later, when I moved to a bigger city, I found out how handy it was to live in an apartment complex that was decidedly gay (and some of those guys have scarier costumes than geeks at a science fiction convention). If I thought I was being followed ,I’d head to the front door of someone who I *knew* was into leather and was scary looking. (Usually though, the guy was a teddy bear. He just looked terrorfying).

    Given that, if I was confronted with a hunter, I’d be outta there. Just don’t corner me, I do have a cane, and I still remember how to yell “+2 normal” while whailing on said ‘hunter’. Willing to bet that cane would hurt a lot worse than any boffer weapon:P

  12. I find it incredibly serendipitous (or perhaps synchronicitous) that this comic story came out days before the new Incredible Hulk movie.

    Which is really good and quite recommended from this fan of the comic-Hulk.

    To quote one critic on the new Hulk movie:

    “…and William Hurt’s moustache is ridiculous. Seriously, they can follow a drop of blood as it falls three stories into an open bottle, but they can’t properly glue on a moustace?”

    hey Clueless. First of all there is no limit on Geek! Geek is eternal. And Larp stands for Live Action Role Playing. In otherwords nerds like me who dress up and play our characters live instead of describing what they do. Conflicts (aka combat) are resolved with some kind of randomizing system like dice or playing paper/rock/scissors or in the case of Boffer LARPS hitting eachother with foam bats and throwing bean bags. Although the Boffer bit I only heard about, never played.

    The latest comic shows the hunter using a pistol and firing a warning shot. Ahhh… the Imperial Stromtrooper School of Marksmanship. If you want to capture a were geek, shouldn’t you shoot him in the leg? Methinks the hunters are just figments of imagination.

    i believe nobody mentioned the obvious possibility… that the Hunters are actually LARP-ers themselves …remember that when our weregeek hero was first introduced to the Vampire LARP scene, all the geeks were “vamped out” and (to us and the hero) seemed pretty real

    I’d be pretty angry if the scuffle wrinkled up the character sheets in my pockets; or if they broke my pocky.

    I think you might be right, Ithilion.

    If think, if there is a special melle fighting style for geeks, it is called “otaku-fu” or soemthing that sounds similar.

  21. KNO3 Says:

    My gaming group has a Siu Lum Pai, Aikido (me), Judo, Tai Quan Do, and three NRA practitioners (some overlap of course). No Otaku-fu here.

    Hm… I’m practising Kendo but dont know a Otaku-fu-ka…
    Perhaps you have to join a secret geek societey to be trained. I bet in includes self defence with d20s and trading cards.
