Vampires at UofD, LARPing in the sports section, The Blind GM, and more!

I've got a bunch of articles and items that deserve mention on the blog, but too little time to give each one it's own post. So here are some quick reviews:

'Vampire' clans battle in Purnell Hall - This one is over a month old, and slipped by me somehow, even though it's from my own home state of Delaware. College papers are usually good to the roleplaying hobby, giving an accurate portrayal of the game and players, and this article is no exception. Mention is made of how LARP can help build confidence and social skills in players who need help in one or both.

Live Action Role Play: no blood, all glory - Another college paper covers LARP, this time the Seattle University Spectator covering boffer-style LARPing - in the Sports section, no less!

The Blind GM - I discovered The Blind GM when he followed me on Twitter, and clicked over to his blog to check it out. In it, he discusses the challenges of being a blind roleplayer, including finding PDFs that are accessible to the visually impaired. It's still a new blog (only two posts so far), but I'm hoping it will stick around for a while and enlighten us all even further.

Homeschool RPG Club - Update (from the Kids-RPG discussion group). Bruce Anderson organized an RPG club for homeschooled kids, and ran Savage Worlds sessions for four different groups. This post is a summary of the groups and the sessions he ran for each, and it is overflowing with awesomeness.

Fantasy lives in real-world games - As I was typing all of this up, another great story hit my inbox, this one from the Columbian in Washington, about gamers meeting at the Washougal Community Library to play RPGs and other games.
