Why are LARPs "dying", anyway? On one hand, I suspect it has something to do with LARPs being out of view of a large number of con-goers. I know a lot of people never step foot inside of the Hilton during the weekend. Even of those who do make it to the Hilton, few people see anyone playing LARPs unless they are already interested in LARPs to begin with (they have no reason to go to the 4th floor). LARPs used to be in middle of all the con chaos and there were always tons of players when that was the case.
On the other hand, maybe LARPing has just run its course on a larger scale. I've heard rumors of local vampire chapters dying out in places that used to have a strong player base.
Either way, I hope HMG pulls some of their usual genius and gets things rolling in a big way again.
