Dragging Aidan after her, the pair found themselves in Meadhampstead once again. What will they face this time?

Ithronian Adventures

So, based on my hastily posted blog a couple of weeks ago, you might have guessed that Newcastle branch hosted a fest this year. Set out in the wilds of Northumberland we took advantage of our surroundings to run a dwarf inspired plot. We hope that all those who attended enjoyed themselves and enjoyed the story we ran.

I would like to offer my thanks again to all members of the team who wrote missions, wrote froth, organised and did all the admin, built props, put together costumes, crewed, first aided, cooked, cleaned, set up tents, put down tents, and generally made the fest work unseen and hidden from view. You’re all awesome and words can not sum up the feeling of pride I have that we pulled this off.

But you’re not here to read about my love and admiration for the crew, you’re here for a write up of the event. So let me tell you the tale of the dwarven hold of Dun Chevin, of how it fell, and how it was reclaimed.

Ithronian Adventures

The city of Old Kirk Leigh has been a ruined ghost town for 200 years. It was a place where the Gods’ light did not shine, where spirits and troubled souls linger trapped in that place. The Earl, Sir Crispin Falcon, summoned adventurers to help investigate and recapture the old city.

Thank you to Leeds for organising, writing, refereeing, set dressing and prop making and all the things that are needed to run Leedfest ’18. You are all super hard working and deserve a rest after the event you ran. Thank you for an enjoyable immersive event!

As always I am unable to name all those who attended the event, or give the whole story, but I will spin you the tale of the adventurers and their journey into that ruined city.

Over hills, and over plains…

This was intended to be the write up of Leedsfest but it turns out that running your own fest sort of takes over your life and your house…

Surprise! We are all currently out in a field in the middle of nowhere, busily setting up for time in for this weekend’s event. Hopefully there will be a few photos of kit in action to show you, and a few tales to tell when we get back.

Enjoy your weekend of LARP wherever you are.

A gown with a garland of roses

Prior to attending our first big event of the year, I decided it was time to spruce up Lady Judith’s wardrobe with a new gown and to do a little stash busting at the same time. I had a bolt of lovely silky material in a deep purple colour that was just too nice to leave rolled up unused. And so I turned this bolt of cloth into a gown that is proving another staple of the Lady-Knight’s regular attire.
