Yu-Gi-Oh! + LARPing = WTF?!

Okay, I totally don't know what it falls under or if it's even allowed, but this is one of the funniest things I've ever seen, so.... yeah.

Anyways, I'm a LARPer (live-action roleplay, for those who don't know; basically tabletop gaming with improv acting thrown in). I play, in particular, a game called Changeling: The Lost. Basic premise: there are things called the True Fae which live in another realm called Arcadia. These Fae like to kidnap people and change them somehow- anything from making you more beautiful to turning you into a dog. Then, you escaped. Now you're back in the real world, but you're not human anymore, and you have to survive. (It's more fun than it sounds, really, I'm just horrible at explaining things.)

Well, yesterday, we had a session of the game, and a new player showed up. He described his character as being really skinny, with big eyes and hugely spiky red hair. I thought nothing of this until we ended up in combat, where he brought out.... a deck of Duel Monsters cards.

And my brain stopped functioning.

Not only that, but he had found a way, WITHIN THE RULES OF THE GAME, to be able to summon 'monsters' and have them attack things. I'm so not even kidding. It was at once the best and most horrifying thing I had ever seen. Amazingly cracktackular. He has now decided that he is going to teach the other Changelings to duel.

Yeah.... just thought I'd share. :D

EDIT: Oh yeah. He has a motorcycle.
