I have looked around the forum and wiki but I have some pretty specific questions that I couldn’t find answers too (maybe I didn’t know where to look).
I should probably explain my situation first to give some context. I’m currently living in Portugal (where there are no Larp events) and I have decided I wanna go for it and fly to Empire as my first event (in June). But duo to this some problems have arrived. And these are (some) of them!
1 - Is it possible to rent or borrow a tent that isn’t massive? I’m most likely going alone and paying so much for a huge tent isn’t viable. I can’t bring a tent on the airplane with me so I don’t really have a plan.
2 - Again duo to the flight (and cost) I can’t make/bring armor with me. Is there any way I could borrow or rent some at the event? The same goes for weapon and maybe a shield. I’m not planing to be in the front lines but I also don’t want my character to die in 2 hits. (I’m thinking of becoming a physick)
3 - Are people carpooling from places? I’ll be flying to Birmingham and, though the train is a great option, I have quite a bit of anxiety so finding my way around a foreign city… Having people to meet up with and chat with before the event is probably not a bad idea to calm myself down.
The rest will be pretty much questions about the event itself
4 - Is it possible to use the campfires I have seen in pictures to make food or make tea? I’m used to camping so I know how to boil water over an open flame but I’m not sure what the rules are.
5 - Wanting to play a physick I had some doubts about physical representation. Can I use glass bottles for potions (I couldn’t find plastic)? Do potions need to be drinkable? If I give someone the physical representation how will I get it back?
6 - How much do potions (and items) actually cost in game?
7 - What kind of make-up is allowed IC? I was thinking of maybe using golden eye-shadow (Freeborn) and maybe nail polish but I’m not sure if that’s appropriate.
8 - Is it allowed to bring a pocket knife? Just for sharpening a stick for example (I wanted to bring marshmallows and I would need a sharp stick )
9 - How do I join a group IC? I may have a friend with me but its not probable and being alone at an event this big seems horrible.
I may end up with more questions later on (I am quite an over planner) but thats all I could think of for now! I’m so sorry for the many questions! And even more if some have been answered before.
