Darkon: The Movie

Ok, this is definitely on my must see list. Here's the synopsis according to South by Southwest:

"Everybody wants to be a hero. This documentary takes a good look into the bizarre and fascinating world of Darkon. Darkon is a full-contact medieval fantasy wargaming group, active in the Baltimore/Washington area since 1985. Every other Sunday, between 150 and 300 members gather in costume and armor to fight unchoreographed mock battles with padded weaponry. For most, it is much more than a game." (link)

Check out the trailer:

Sweet. I'm like a kid in a candy store. Except the store is the internet, and the candy is a juice crew of overweight nerds with swords.

(thanks Gabe!)
