This is my first post here on the forums. (Well… anywhere Larp related really) and I just wanted to introduce myself and the group.
I’m a 15th century re-enactor and have been for enough years to surprise myself when I think back on how long ago I attended my first event.
Over the last couple of years I’ve oft pondered what Larp would be like. So… this year and probably with thanks to the lockdown and all that extra time not going out doing other things like medieval events, I’ve found thoughts turning to Larp as a new area of interest.
Que the power of google and YouTube and lo there did I see Empire.
I discussed it with another local medieval household (they’ve all gone league, but there’s no helping some people)
And with my own reenactment household. We have decided to join with the seemingly wonderfully free … freeborn. Something completely at odds with our usual style of hobby.
So, here we are. Looking towards our first event (possibly September, atleast for a few of us)
Costume ideas n purchases have been thrown around n made. Some still pondering.
Almost all of YouTube’s empire content exhausted, wiki read top to bottom, historical influences compared n cross referenced n such (that’ll be the historians in us) and the important things chosen like a family symbol, the communal lay out (15th century wise we have a couple of awnings and a big n small fire pit… these things are important y’know)
Though we are still working on our Syrah!
With no more gilding on the lilly is like to introduce the family muhajim I Guerra
We’ll be only around 6 strong. All experienced on a reenactment battlefield. Please bare with us as we explore all the character options n sort ourselves out.
In the mean time however… HI!!
