Ithronian Adventures #168 – The wolves and the monster

Tags

, , ,

The Primate of Krygan – head of the Church of Corruption; priest of the Mother of Monsters; strongest of the strong. He has been prowling the county of Eborshire for several years, investigating ways of making creations of his Goddess better – stronger – at the cost of the innocents around him. Catching the attentions of the local adventurers a long campaign has been waged against him and his creations, culminating in a final assault upon the forest in which lay his stronghold. Along the way people have lost much to this monster. And now the adventurers of Ithron intend to destroy him.

Thank you to the referees, organisers, props makers, player and monsters who came to Leedsfest ’16. I thoroughly enjoyed myself seeing the conclusion to this long running plot, and am amazed at how everything fit together and played its part – even the scattered document located on mission 1!

I cannot name all those who attended, and can only give the story from my perspective, but I will tell you the tale of the hunt and the defeat of the Primate of Krygan and his nasty little horde of monsters!

The Mark of a Scribe – a LARP friendly scribal kit, satchel and scroll

Tags

, , , , , , ,

Brigit has developed an interest in scholarly pursuits, and I decided that I should also invest in creating a scribal kit for myself that I can take with me to events. Sadly our system does not allow for much sitting around the camp pursuing scholarly arts (which isn’t a bad thing …) but it does mean that every time I take out my ink I risk a fight kicking off.

However, all complaints aside, I took a scribal kit with me to Springfest and the Leeds Invite and much fun was had. Taking inspiration from the kits and works of Ian the Green, Alexandre Saint Pierre and others in the SCA who share their beautiful works and teachings online; I made for myself a Fools and Heroes friendly kit which is not exactly period but will, in my opinion, still make some beautiful scribal works.

In this walk-through I will show you the contents of my kit, my scribal bag and photographs of the scroll I prepared to give to the Dragons of Cathay.

Ithronian Adventures #167 – Konnish in Ymal

Tags

, , ,

Across the sea lie many lands within the bounds of the great Axirian Empire. But the Empire is under threat – tearing itself apart from the inside and at the fringes enemies of civilisation and the Gods pick at threadbare patches of resistance. Ymal, a country that shares its borders with the desolate region of the Konn, is one such place. Last year a group of adventurers travelled to the country to break the siege upon a city of significance, but the conflict has continued to rage – the battle lines pushed back and broken, until a group of desperate travellers left their homeland early this year and travelled across the continent to Llaminusia where they encountered by chance a group of adventurers.

The time has now come for these adventurers to enact their plan – to take back the Great Library; to take back Ymal.

Thanks Tees Valley for a great pair of player led missions (pity about the weather later in the day …) which had us fighting through our fears to get to the objectives. Hats off to the adventurer runners and all involved – I know I had my heart in my mouth!

The follower of the Lady of Luck – a brief look at Tungdil’s dwarven kit

My OH plays Tungdil Stonehammer (of the clan of the Shattered Axes), a dwarven ex-miner who believes in making your own luck and paying due deference to the bearded Lady of Luck who laughs at him often. Mercenary, Traldan, both blessed and cursed; Tungdil goes through his adventuring life with a smile, a dirty joke (usually about elves) and an axe somewhere about his person.

His kit was inspired by the recent Lord of the Rings and Hobbit films, the work of Marcus Heitz, and taking the path of Tralda in a light hearted, fun loving manner.

I include below a brief overview of some of Tungdil’s kit that I have made.

Ithronian Adventures #166 – The Starfall Company

Adventurers are not the only people out in Ithron looking to make a quick penny or two. Oh no; you have mercenary companies, would be “heroes”, bandits and rogues – not to mention the “anti-venturers” in Mr Niels’ employ. Some times adventurers cross paths with these types; sometimes you can work beside them / tolerate their existence and sometimes you just can’t.

People have to eat, you know? Or at least that’s the argument some would use.
