Quote from: Pinky Narfanek on Feb 29, 2008, 07:07:17 AMJust to expand a bit on what others have said:LARP (Live-Action-Role-Playing): These are the people that get dressed up in costume and go about having their game. Sometimes it's in public, sometimes it's not. Some LARPs use fake weapons or "boffer" weapons, others ban them outright. Most (that I've heard of) frown on bothering anyone outside the game while game-related activities are going on.Table-top or Pen-n-Paper RPG: This is more the traditional D&D-style game with a group of folks sitting around in someone's kitchen/basement (to use the common stereotype) going through their game. Dice are common although some games use cards or other methods (sometimes forsaking dice altogether) to determine outcomes. Leading Edge Games originally published an Aliens RPG (as well as a boardgame) back in the late 80s/early 90s.Computer Game RPGs: I think that def defined those pretty well.
