Live-Action Role-Play or LARP groups frequently engage in costumed mock combat using foam weapons based upon or influenced by medieval fantasy or science fiction literature. Unlike medieval societies, which emphasize historical authenticity, LARP groups freely engage in fantasy fiction scenarios and emphasize fun. Mock combat is often the central feature of LARP activities, and participants may be encouraged to develop characters with classes, skill levels and magical abilities (much like the characters of classic role-playing games such as Dungeons & Dragons). Notable LARP groups include Dagorhir, Amtgard and Belegarth.
