LARPs The Series - A New Webseries

I found new webseries that I really enjoyed.. it's called LARPs The Series, I saw the "pilot" episode 0 a few weeks back and though it had potential but then I got sidetracked and it fell off my radar. Until today when I saw a tweet about a new episode and check it out again.. they are already on episode 3 so I had the pleasure of watching episode 0 again along with episodes 1, 2 and 3.

Wait a minute I'm getting ahead of myself.. maybe some of you don't know what LARPing is.. well here's a quick description of what it is and what the series is about. In a LARP, or live action-roleplaying game, players assume the identity of their chosen character and physically perform their actions (as opposed to simply describing them as in D&D). LARPs: The Series follows a group of friends and their journey through both their imaginary and real lives.

This series is being released on Felicia Day's Geek and Sundry channel on YouTube. And new episodes come out every Friday.

There's only been a few episodes but here are my thoughts on those episodes. Let's start with the techie stuff.. the way it's shot is fantastic, I don't know what camera they are using but man does it look good. The costume look great and the weapons are fantastic. I'm enjoying the characters for the most part and the story has been good so far. I mean each episode is only 5 minutes long so we've seen just over 15 minutes of this series. That would be my one and only complaint, that the episodes are to short I want to see more.

This series gives me the same vibe that The Guild did when I first watched it. Only time will tell if this series will hold a place in my heart like The Guild, but for now I'm just enjoying the ride.

You can check out the series by going to their website HERE or head over to You Tube and watch episodes, which I would strongly suggest you do.. just follow the LINK.
