We just saw a doco about freeforming / LARPing called Monster Camp. Maybe it was my skewed perspective as an intermittent monster for Yseda, but it seemed very unfocused (not just the camera work). It was really hard to work out what this game they were playing was actually about. There was some sort of mention of sexual politics within character races, and boss monster encounters, but the only actual story mentioned was killing spiders to make sausages. (I think I did that in the Ghostlands this week.)

They were more concerned with the people than the game, and most of them came across as a rather sad bunch. World of Warcraft did not escape lightly either. I don't think it was malicious, and may indeed be entirely accurate, it was just hard to tell.
