Ithronian Adventures #134: Crawling in the dark

Tags

, , ,

Automata sightings on the lands of Baron Pendrake-Strom have been increasing in number the last few weeks. Men fashioned of metal; sculpted from stone; carven from wood; that have gone from standing still in the woodlands to gathering in some number at points across the county. Where have they come from? What threat do they pose?

And so the Baron sends word to the adventurers of the county to help answer these questions.

Ithronian Adventures #133: The spirit of the Sharnwood

Tags

, , ,

Adventurers from far and wide were invited by Lady Katerine De La Ray, Warden of East Derwentshire, to travel to the area for the celebrations of the completion of the King’s new road between the town of Ashfield and the halfling settlement of the Shire on the edge of the mighty Sharwood. With such an occasion it seemed unlikely that anything could threaten the festivities.

How mistaken could they be …

Thank you to those who planned, organised, ran, crewed, made props, cooked, first aided and turned up for Springfest. Without all the hard work, story telling and wild hijinks the event would not have been as fun as it was! If you turned up and have not been named (or named incorrectly) below, please comment below or send a message to wolfish dot written dot author at g mail dot com.

Previously I wrote a little on the inspirations for my currently knightly character in the LARP system Fools and Heroes, Dame Ravenna Corvidae, and mentioned a few other items I had in mind to make to continue to develop her knightly kit.

See below for how I made my Black Order Livery Collar, a crocheted snood/hair net and the additional items for Dame Ravenna Corvidae.

Tags

There are dark places in Berwickshire – places lost to the light of the seven, places filled with terrible nightmarish creatures and fear. Then there are places of good – places that act as a beacon for the lost and displaced in the world’s dangers, places where the followers of the seven do good things.

Here are tales of two such places …

Dressing Appropriately – LARP Kit for summer

Tags

, , , ,

The year has turned back towards summer and whilst you may no longer need to wear lots of layers and adventure bundled in cloaks and scarfs, preparations should be made to ensure your kit is appropriate for the season. As I’ve said before, I know most LARPers are perfectly sensible, however as the days grow warmer people start to do silly things and end up in some sort of discomfort.

This is my personal outlook on summer kit and summer preparations.
