Nick Chakurmanian (right) lunges at fellow Plattsburgh State student Sam McFadden, delivering a crippling blow while defending his realm Sunday afternoon during the first-ever L.A.R.P. (live action role play) event on the field behind Memorial Hall. The objective was to steal the opposing team’s treasure from their castle and hold it for five minutes in order to secure a victory. During battle, a hit to the torso resulted in a “kill” and a blow to a limb made it unusable, while an additional strike to any part killed that player. Fallen warriors could also be resurrected by a mana (magic) user on their team.
