I’ve been speaking to a few people in my existing LARP social circle and have come up with a character concept. I was wondering if I could throw the idea to the forums to see if people have any advice as I flesh it out a little more?
PERSONAL RP PREF: I’m generally up for most RPing (exception is romance). However, i don’t find politics interesting enough for it to be all that I do.
ROLE: the role I want the character to fill is a support role. Specifically having my character as a utility character. Think bard in DnD, a healer/buffer/debuffer. Initially I accept I’ll have to spec a squishy healer (may or may-not combat first event). But want to RP the character getting more martial over time. Getting sword and shield skills, or more offensive magics.
IDEA: I like the idea of a wintermark Kallavesi Draughir icewalker. I like the look of the stormcrows, they look epic! Would there be a way I can take some of the stormcrow looks into a Kallavesi icewalker (Which i know is a rarity already). Or even something else that suits my combat support/utility role better? I love the premise of using the spirits and animal aspects as a source/inspiration of magical evocation. I would role play calling upon them by casting seeds, giving the land blood and water, being nice to animals etc etc. The idea that if you do not give nature what it needs, it will take it without prejudice (which if i have read correctly, is quite Draughir).
BACKGROUND: In short. As a Draughir child was abandoned in the Kallavasi marshes, found and raised by the Thane and his magic circle. He grew up, now wonders from village to village healing people in exchange for bed, board and a little coin. Currently just looking to learn and get by.
As i may attend the july event (pending kit acquisition), and my existing larp kit is rarther modern/scifi (a full black swat kit seems to be out of place at empire. To my dismay ) So I need to get minimal kit, in a single payday. Any recommendations on cheap kit that fits the bill? I have a bag that could fit in and some wristwraps, but that’s about it.
Thanks for reading this far
