So, this weekend saw the senior section (i.e. the ones with no more exams!) of Warwick LARPS attend Maelstrom, a Live Action event which occurs four time a year at various sites around the country.
This was mine and Casp’s second event and everyone else’s (Laura, Dan, BJ and Izzy’s) first, I don’t know how many times Tori and Sacha have been, but I’m jealous! Anyway…
I won’t worry you too much with plot, cos to be honest there’s far too much and you really have to be there to understand the sheer awesomeness of 800 LARP-ers in about 10 different races and variations thereon, three in-character fields and one man walking round in a 15 foot dragon costume!!
Add to that Messangers from the Gods materialising in your gazebo, battles raging outside the door and everyone having about three alterior motives never mind the ones they actually display to those around them and you have an incredible weekend!
The other ace bit is I have no responsibility in the system, and even in this group! I just ditz around learning Sourcery. It’s great.
Six weeks til the next one…
