I'm not a LARPer, but I owe Darren a great dea (and he's more than just a pizza guy). Here's the link to his first Kickstarter.http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1832603818/champions-live-action
Did Cryptic say "yes" to this project?
If they do Dark Champions, they only need Hero Games' permission.
Also, they could just change the name of it so they don't have to tread on IP. That's what Cryptic did initially with City of Heroes.
Anyway, I for one would love such a game... if there were any LARP groups within a reasonable difference. Nearest one is an hour away. Provided the GMs aren't complete and total O-Rings, it's gotta be better than CO.
Nearly half way to the target pledge goal, with 18 days to go. Looks very promising.
