E1 will be my first event as well, however, as I’m going with a group of friends, (D&D group, there are 8+ of us when we’re all together!), we’ve started our own striding/Banner.
If all goes to plan, we will be there from the Thursday, and I’m sure the others won’t mind me inviting you to come RP with us. Again, costume isn’t finalised, but look for the mismatched group in cloaks. Feel free to PM me if your interested, and I’ll let you know closer to the event what we actually are going to look like!
P.s. Sorry for resurrecting a zombie!
