Massive thanks to everyone who has contributed! I think we could never have made characters this good without your help!
Una has now been built on the PD website, and we’ve finished the costumes! (for now)
Una now has skills (Endurance, Chirugeon, Physick; and sheild if our homemade sheilds get through weapons check), her resource is now a herb garden; and her armour is most likely going to count as medium - you can see in the photos below her wearing leather and chain-mail.
Quick question: Apothecary sounds amazing! The GFs main concern with the physick skill set is that you can’t heal yourself - but the ability to make potions that you can sell and take yourself that have the same effects as herbs (or better) sound amazing! What is being an apothecary like in the game?
(here are some photos of her looking beautiful and me looking squinty in yesterdays summer sun)
The shields are here. Mine is on the left and hers is on the right. They are foam over MDF with a sheet glued onto them, painted with wilko cheep paints.
On the front there is about 7mm of foam in front of the mdf- and 10cm between the bottom edge and the point. They are painted with cheep wilko paints. If i get some time to make a stencil - i’ll make a nice dawnish yellow sun (would this one be about right?) for the upper right quadrant.
My last mission is to sort out camping for us. Currently our friendship group is two beds short - this is in part my fault on insisting on being dawn. How much of a faux pas would it be if Una slept with our Wintermark friends? (they have one spare bed) If that wouldn’t be terrible I’m going to look around for a cheep one man tent that i can use in the OC area.
Are there any other pieces of advice you think we should have before the event?
