Once the snow is gone, you can see warriors in medieval outfits battling it out on Mount Royal every weekend.

Now some of these LARPers (live action role players) are taking it to a whole new level.

They've produced a web series called, LARPs: The Series. And it chronicles not just world of role playing, but the people behind those roles.

As writer and actor Jon Verrall says, "It's kind of like Friends or Seinfeld, with LARPing." 

U.S. website Geek and Sundry has re-released the show's first season — bumping its viewership up from 200,000 to 1 million.

But the group doesn't plan to stop there.

They've started a crowdfunding campaign they hope will help them produce even better shows — and reach even bigger audiences.
