    Well, A for trying, Mark. Unfortunately I’m not sure things are going to go as effortlessly as I think you were imagining them to.

    OK. Not cool. You are in an ic area and you do not exist. It is bad enough when other paying members do this but you are literally breaking immersion. This shatters any sense of suspending disbelief and is just rude. Ravenia has obviously hasn’t briefed this dude on proper etiquette or he just does not care; either way this is exactly why LARP is not a spectator sport.

    Don’t panic, dear. It’s pretty clearly a part of your costume for the current event going on, not automatically a lifestyle thing.

    Well, there’s the first impression gone to hell. *sigh*
    This is probably why LARPs shouldn’t have spectators.

    A bit off topic, but will the comic-select archive be updated soon? I’ve wanted to go back to some of the more recent previous comics, but the latest item to be added to it is the first part of chapter 6 of Chronicle 2.

    I don’t think they’re in character yet. Dustin isn’t wearing his mask and I’m pretty sure the “he” Mark is talking about is Riptooth.

    I should note that the game hasn’t officially started yet – Dustin’s not fully in costume, and most people are just standing around chatting. It’s not unusual, at least for games that I’ve played in, for people to come and observe the first little bit of the game to see if they’d be interested in playing.

    Fear, temporarily dismissed, and then immediately realized.

    That said, is it just me or has Ravenia not done a good job with checking Mark’s comfort zones with this whole deal? IIRC, he was initially completely confused by her flirting because he didn’t know she was in a poly relationship, thinking she was trying to cheat on Dustin. And since then he’s been weirded out every step of the way…

    Sure, part of that is that he tries to pretend he’s cool with things he’s not, but he’s not exactly subtle with his discomfort.

    To be fair, I’ve picked up a couple partners who dug my LARP or Cosplay gear…

    And I’ve absolutely had things make it from LARPs into the rest of my life for me and other partners. It’s how one of my FWBs discovered she loved having a collar, from a VtM game…

    But it’s not a lifestyle thing or whatever, it can just look good too!
