Attention Fantasy-loving New Englanders! Sidereus wants YOU!

Good afternoon, everyone! I know that I don't post on here very often, but I hope you'll lend me your ears for a bit. Some of you may have heard of the hobby of LARPing, or Live-Action Roleplay. You may also have some negative stereotypes associated with it, enabled by that infamous video with the c...
