Guess that is true, this however is not LARP but re-enactment fighting/living. We (I'm one of them) use all steel weapons.

well.. ok.. but by us.. it's still called LARP.. or a branch of it.. it's still Live Action RolePlaying, isn't it? :-)
yeah but I agree, that living history is a higher class than ordinary LARP ;-)

Here it's not considered LARP sine we don't do role playing, we don't have characters we play. We still have war games sometimes with scenario and all, but no characters. Sometimes we act a bit but that is for the audience mainly.

Ah I see..
Well by us, it is considered LARP, because, although we don't have characters in battle either, we act as somebody, who we aren't, so se play some role..

I agree, personally I wouldn't call it LARP, it is so close to (many) of us that is almost more of a lifestyle then play. you are the same person
