Thank you for your advice! I was thinking of maybe building one of those large serving boxes with a leather strap that hands around your neck/shoulders, so it has a little more room than a basket, and putting metal tins inside, containing snacks (and other things, like IC paper bags, maybe some snazzy business cards, serving tongs, et cetera) - and then wandering around different camps, selling things and getting some game! (Although I may actually bring a small trundle cart, something I can pull behind me or push in front of me.)
Waiting around before the political meetings sounds like a good idea! I may bring quite a lot with me (I sometimes work at different farmers’ markets during the weekends, and I’m well-used to carrying heavy trays and boxes of food, so no change here!), because my character’s core virtues are Ambition and Prosperity, so I’d like to go just a little overboard (stylishly, obviously). If this works out after quite a few events, I’d quite like to open an IC bakeshop to serve these treats and some cold drinks in summer too!
I really enjoy baking, and I have a few things planned regarding sweet things like brownies, cookies, mini cakes, et cetera, and was interested in seeing what savoury things other people offered. Considering there aren’t as many as I thought, it’ll be a good idea to try and fill that niche! Things like cheese straws and savoury muffins would be a given, maybe some pretzels and rolls - or maybe some different flavours of savoury popcorn, if I packaged them before the game?
Gosh, those cards are absolutely gorgeous! I was thinking of beginning with designing rune cards on Photoshop, and pulling three for a reading, and then perhaps seguing into the dramaturgy/League performance characters later on if it works out.
Another goal my character has in mind is to tour each of the nation camps, gather different recipes that people would be willing to share, and create an IC cookbook of some sort. I have plenty of recipes of my own, that can be cooked at home or when LARPing/camping, and I think it would be really cool to put different recipes from different nations into one book. Imagine a hearty stew or soup from Wintermark on one page and a lavishly elaborate League dish on the next. Thoughts?
