    Greetings, I am into Medieval times , knights and swordplay. I enjoy the idea of a knights code of honour and especially enjoy testing myself on the field of battle.

    I like vast, complex worlds with a large variety of cultures, peoples and languages into which characters are placed for their adventures.

    My reason for asking the question is to find out if anyone does anything in relation to what your interests are.
    For example, I am into Medieval times. I train twice a week ( with Medieval weaponry ) and run a web site http://larpwa.webs.com/ in order to find others with similiar interests so that we can hold Medieval themed events and engage in combat.

    Fantasy interests/ actions may be RPG gaming , costuming, collections, i dont know what people might do to bring their interests to reality. I just know that since i have been actively engaging in my interests that i am really happy, fit, and wish to find other outlets to heighten the experience.

    well i like both postapocalyptic themes as well as medieval worlds, but the only ways i've seen them affect my real world life at all is in my love of gardening, martial arts classes, knowledge of the nooks and crannies of nearby trails and study of medieval weaponry & armour.. aside from that, i don't really attend rennaisance fairs or play LARP's very often.

    I'm mostly into high fantasy with a random tendencies to write stuff based on that interest. That plus I'm a sucker for storylines behind every game that catches my interest. BlazBlue Continuum Shift ftw. :)

    Fantasy worlds for me come out in two areas:

    1) Fiction, of course--who can enter a piece of work like Lord of the Rings and have any doubt as to its reality?

    2) Music. Certain kinds of music take me to places where landscapes open, morph and fade away. They cannot be pinned down the way the world of a fantasy book can, yet they are absolutely fulfilling while they last.

    I like to create entire worlds with their own languages, cultures, religions and political organizations. but they never really make it into books or stories.

    Viking and heroic fantasy. Until a year ago I was part of a group which gave Living History Exhibitions with Viking battle skirmish reenactments. Work means I no longer have time for that now sadly, but I retain the interest.
    Heroic fantasy, and I unashamedly admit that if someone could throw me in at the deep end of an actual realm like the books I cut my teeth on so very long ago as a child, I`d be quite happy.

    I love high fantasy; different worlds, different races, magic etc and a like medieval times too.
    But I don't do anything to bring it to reality :( it stays all in my imagination.
    I tried to write a story once, but unfortunatly writting isn't really one of my strongest traits so it never went as far as one chapter ._."

    I love the dialog aspect... seeing how characters interact and what the language is like.

    I like a little of everything, but in roleplay realm I usually stick to Dungeons and Dragons, the REAL dungeons and dragons, not that 3rd-4th edition sillyness! Eberron is just stupid beyond orc brains.
