I hope you are all doing well, : )
After many years of bad luck, I finally find myself ready to take the plunge into LARP/Empire.
I’m excited to get stuck in and be part of the community but I have some questions.
First of all, joining the League’s Free Companies is very appealing to me. But what is it like being a mercenary in Anvil? If you are a mercenary, what has your experience been like so far? And are there any other useful insights that people can share?
Also, I love the idea of eventually leading a weird and wacky mercenary unit of my own (think old school Warhammer Fantasy, Dogs of War). Is it common for a Free company to be bizarre or exotic? Or do they generally retain a lot of their League heritage?
I’m eager to learn more and appreciate any help that you can offer, many thanks,
Joe : )
