Hey there! American here, not new to LARP, but interested in trying Empire when COVID calms down.
I’m interested in playing Imperial Orcs, Marches, or Dawn.
For the Orcs, I already have a kit for another game that meets the brief (would just need the appropriate mask). Marches/Dawn, I have a kit that would fit for a Beater of the Marches, or a yeofolk of Dawn.
Would anyone be willing to toss in their opinions on how new player friendly those groups are, what they’d be looking for to play interesting stories within those nations, and what I could look into for accommodations when eventually able to make it over,
Also, I have not been able to find rules on what is permissible for combat. I have a medical condition that makes me getting hit in the head a Bad Time For Me, so I was curious about that. Knowing the likelihood of headshots will definitely inform my character choice.
Additionally, I am part of the Empire Facebook group, is this forum or the FB a better place to get info?
Thanks in advance!
