There is a tremendous amount of fun to be had with larp swords. These foam swords allow players to really wail on their friends and mock enemies, without causing anything in the way of damage. If individuals like dagorhir groups or pitched battles, it is imperative to ensure that you are properly outfitted. If one purchases items that are too cheap, there is a good chance they will break or otherwise decrease the enjoyment that individuals could have. There are a wide array of larping weapons available, and finding the right one will ensure many sessions of fun play. The variation that is possible on these weapons means that players could choose any one of many historically accurate weapons, shields, or armor and really look spiffy. Make sure to find your local dagorhir group and see exactly what their rules are regarding the types of weapons they allow, and what sort of realm one would LARP in. For example, there may be a limitation of weapons based on the century in which the LARP is in, or the overall theme may force players to take up a weapon. Regardless of the specific nuances of your play group, the one thing that I do know is that there are some companies creating solid product lines. Make sure to find one of these companies and get well-stocked; these axes, swords, and the like will last for years if they are properly treated. NeuFutur readers, tell us what you think about foam swords and their ilk; we would love to hear what sort of experiences that you have had with these weapons. I’ve had some of the best times of my life just being the (RPG) crap out of someone with a boffer weapon, and I can ensure that you will as well.
