I’m completely new to larp and am looking to attend in April.
I am looking to join a group/hall to help guide my first experience.
Welcome to Empire, there’s a tonne of resources online and around. There’s lots of threads here on Empire forums, as well as the Wiki which I’d recommend giving a read through, not all of it, just any relevant areas.
As well as worth mentioning while there are those on here. Your best bet for finding a group for Wintermark, besides finding one infield is to check the Facebook Group for wintermark
or the New Players Group, which always has tonnes of advice:
I’m sure someone can give you more details, but that’s my advice for now, any more questions I’ll be happy to answer.
Hello and Welcome. Just a couple of things to ask first:
1st: " Ninja’d"
2nd: Are you planning on coming up on your own or with others? Do you know anyone who attends already?
Is there a specific reason you want to join Wintermark? The only reason I ask is the majority of new players tend to gravitate there for various reasons and it’s always good to spread new players among the other nations.
sadly i will most probably be coming alone, its why i’m looking for a group to join.
I chose Wintermark as i already have some appropriate costume pieces from party i attended a few years ago (helping reduce the costs); and i suppose really its the nation i felt i could fit in most, as i have read/watched most of its influences and could easily gather an understanding of the culture and the part id like to play in it.
(hope this helps answer your question)
Thats very fair. The facebook group is the best place to look for a group to join, I think there is a few recruitment threads: Recruitment!
this is one but there may be more. Do you have any questions on parts of the game?
It does indeed! I only asked as some answers have been “Because I saw it on youtube” or similar. Which is no bad thing in itself, but it’s always good to make sure new players realise there are other nations out there
Wpuld love to offer our group to newcomers such as ourselves! We would like some info about your character though(Nation, class setup
