  1. I started working on putting together my first set of pc garb and was just curious on what peoples thoughts were as I have never really done anything like this before and while I have noticed some things I will want to change there very well might be things I didn't think of or notice. heres a quick list of my personal thoughts about what I plan to change: new cloak, this current cloak is sorta like a blanket cloak thought its a little small in size, it is semi effective at keeping me warm right now in October but I feel like once It gets colder it will not be very effective, it is also not very water resistant so for those reasons I plan to get a better cloak that is water resistant and larger for improved warmth and just general comfort in the winter months and I can use this during the warmer time of the year. pants, the pants are very thin cotton fabric which while not bad at the moment in the current weather I feel like when it gets colder the wind will cut right through them so I plan to get some higher quality faux leather pants that not only provide a bit more warmth but also will help to keep water out. boots, they are not visible in the picture but I am currently using a cheap pair of leather work boots I found, and while they look ok, I definitely want to get something that is more at home in the setting and just looks better with the costume overall pouches! I plan to get a few pouches to go on my belt for things such as coin, color flags for effects, ect as well as a shoulder bag to carry other things such as my feast kit and hygiene stuff in.
  2. took a few years but I am back!

    was planning to attend my first event a few years back but was not yet above the age of 18 so I ended up having to wait, then ended up forgetting all about it once I did hit that age, but now I am 19 (and quite embarrassed by my old post wording lmao) and have been putting together my first set of garb and what not for the past few weeks and hopefully should be able to attend the December event so long as I get the go ahead to get that weekend off from work. just figured I would say hi again! (though I do plan to create a new character rather than play the one I had planned out back when I was younger as I have matured when it comes to character creation buy quite a bit and don't really like the over the top edgy rogue esc character I made back then lol. though I think that is going to wait until after my first event as I want to get a hang for the rules themselves as a npc before branching into pc play)
  3. bottle holder?

    alright thanks
  4. bottle holder?

    the suggested beginner kit includes a drink for the weekend such as a bottle of water, would this and a few bottles of tea or something that are kept in my encampment (wherever that may be at the time, not quite sure, but basically just with my other ooc stuff) out of sight to prevent breaking immersion, and then have one on my in this: https://www.medievalcollectibles.com/product/laced-bottle-holder/ to help make it look more like it belongs there and not break immersion work? I could swap it out for another one each shift if I run out. I figured I could have it around my belt with the rest of my pouches. just wanted to make sure it would be allowed.
  5. Hello! I am hoping to attend my first event

    alright great, given a bit of a head start that I will have now I will also be able to spare some more time to save to get stuff for both my pc and npc outfits, instead of having a month to try and get enough stuff.
  6. Hello! I am hoping to attend my first event

    can't wait until February lol, that way events will be going on again and I will be 18, would I still be able to use the character I made (glim) then?
  7. Hello! I am hoping to attend my first event

    I have decided that it would probably be a better idea to wait until I'm 18 due to the fact that my mom is not interested and I could tell by how little intrest she was taking in character creation i tried to get her to work out a character with me that would fit with mine and make sense in the plot as to why we were always together but she and i quote said this "oh I'm just your mother who understood all you did and why you left so i came looking for you" she wouldn't come up with any plot hooks or anything deeper to her character, plus the mother part went against my background almost entirely since I ran away in the first place because I didn't want to live the life of a theocracy soldier and my parents were so strict and proud vleans that they would not allow me to forsake my lineage to become something otherwise. But other than that her non-interest I feel would show up in game and break the immersion, but its just a little over a year until I'll be 18 so that's fine, and it will give me more time to get a more high quality set of gear.
  8. Hello! I am hoping to attend my first event

    Thank you, and alright, I had read the age requirement policy I just miss read it (though i didn't read the forum post about it just what it says on the website so I will do that right after I post this.) I don't think she would mind much, for all I know she might end up liking the pc stuff too. I also read through a lot of the rules, lore, and world book stuff since I made the post to get inspiration for my characters backstory as well as the general setting of the game itself to get a better sense of how to roleplay my character. I will make sure to talk to dave when I get a chance also. this looks like it will be really fun and thank you again.
  9. Hey, my name is avery and I am looking to get into larp, I have never done larp before but I have done tabe top roleplaying such as dnd and fate before as well as done sword dueling for fun with friends so I know some of the concepts, I have looked at the rules and built a character (which still needs to get approved of course, though I did want to clarify if there was somewhere for me to get into contact with someone to get it approved or if I get it approved at my first event) I do not yet have gear but I plan on attending my first event in October so I have plenty of time to get some simple adventurer and npc clothing as well as a sword. There is another thing, I am only 16 but it says that a person above 15 but under 18 can still go so long as a parent, sibling, or legal guardian over the age of 21 goes, I don't have any siblings older than me but I think I may have convinced my mom to do it, she doesn't seem interested in the combat stuff though so I was wondering if it would be a good idea for her to just volunteer as a non combatant npc for all 4 shifts or maybe just for her 2 mandatory shifts and do production skills to gain coin from within town as a bit of a merchant if that was possible and allowed. I apologize if I have misread the rules and stuff in any way. But I look forward to hopefully getting to play this coming October!
