At first, my reaction was "Absolutely not!". My basis for this was that I do research and base my actions on what actually happened. However, as the discussion continued (and my coworkers got to ribbing me), I got to thinking - IS reenacting any different from LARPing? Both are based upon creating a story/character and acting like you are in a different time/place.
So I thought I'd put it to you, as an interesting question. Is reenacting LARPing? Why or why not?
