Larp, short for Live Action Roleplaying, literally refers to a kind of roleplaying game played outside. However in our culture it describes a particular kind of cringe that occurs when someone gets too full of themselves and starts playing pretend, acting out the appearance of doing high politics while really only managing to embarrass themselves. Larpers will sit in endless meetings, play dress-up, and award each other ranks. Typhon and similar servers are called 'Nazi larp' because they catered to fans of the German aesthetic.
