I’ve been thinking of joining the LARP scene for some time now, and have finally found the courage to get started with the prep-work so I can come along! I’ve never LARPed before, but have done RP and acting/improvisation jobs over the years thats pretty close to it. Also, as someone that is going to be going alone, I guess this post is also about reassuring myself I’ll be welcome, as I’m generally daunted by all of this but really want to get stuck in!
Surfing through the Wiki, The Brass Coast really caught my attention as it’s gorgeous costuming and Middle-Eastern feel really drew me into the nation, so I’m really just wondering what your nation is actually like, and would like to hear from the players as they are the ones who hold the true experiences and knowledge , and just to know whether you would have a place for me!
I’m set on playing a Cambion (Always had a thing about Magical characters, especially ones with horns!) and would love to get into the magic game to be a battle mage or maybe even a ritualist; I’ve not really decided. I have a theatre background so love performance and story-telling, which is another draw to rituals and magic as I’ve heard they are rather spectacular when done well.
The character creation also seems really daunting, as well as names (How do you people come up with such fancy Spanish names!?) so I’m just generally acquiring for some insight into the nation, general tips for playing a Brass Coast character as well as whether this nation would be right for me
Sorry for such a long post!
