Hi, long time reader, 1st time poster (not true). 2nd full year at Empire coming up - i'll still be a clueless Varushkan Battlemage, but with enthusiasm (rather like a eager puppy, well not a puppy but an older puppy. a dog. Back to the main topic). I LARPed many many years ago - I was a member of the Peckforton Castle set-up (yes, i'm that old), and when it shut down for, er, 'various reasons', I stopped playing LARP.
Years later, I found that my daughter and her boyfriend were taking part in something called 'Empire'. I had not told her about Peckforton Castle, so I guess it must have been genetics! So I invited myself along. And loved it (he says looking at the pile of armour, weapons etc I have collected over the past year or so). So 2nd year coming up, barbarians to kill, tripping over tree branches to be done, falling into muddy ditches to be experienced and losing sight of our banner frequently (well there are lot of green banners) to come. Looking forward to it all!
