Tags

, , ,

Once more adventurers of Berwickshire are called to travel the wild ways of the county, to brave perils and face dangers, to see to the safety of the county or to line their own pockets with gold. Two hirings investigating missing scouts call for the attention of brave heroes – one to the wild mountains north of Dun Mhurdo, one to the ancient city in the elven lands.

Ithronian Adventures #140: Edinburgh Day Site

Tags

, , ,

On a glorious summer day adventurers from Newcroft headed north into Lirron to take in the sights and add their metal to a pair of hirings out of the great city on the eastern side of the country.

Thank you Edinburgh for having us along and for running missions in the suprising Scottish sunshine (I did not pack for rain, honest …). Hopefully another northern invasion will occur soon-ish.

If you know someone was present but has been missed off the list or incorrectly named, please contact me on wolfish[dot]written[dot]author[at]gmail[dot]com.

Across Ithron there have been appearances of strange men shaped of metal and stone who move with an unknown will. The Thane’s advisor McTavish calls for brave adventurers to put an end to the workings of the Mithrans and their automata in Berwickshire, by entering the tunnel network at the village of Southington aka Ember. These strange tunnels have not been mapped by Berwickshire Scouts. Who knows what lies beneath? Continue reading

Recipe for Inspiration Soup – preparing a new LARP character

Tags

, ,

Recently I lost my knight character and started a new one. This one had be prepared for a while, but only because I have begun to think ahead and consider the costume kit I want to prepare. I like going to the larger events with the way “in” for a replacement character if things don’t quite go according to plan.

The process I go through for each of my recent characters – Miriam, Wren, Ravenna and Brigit – is similar though each have their own “recipe” as to how they came together. The full inspiration of Brigit will be detailed at a future point when I am settled in her character and have a few more pieces of kit to show off, but I would like to share the origins of my character’s “inspiration soup”.

Bumps, bruises and bites – tending your own hurts at fests

Tags

, , , , , , , , , , , ,

I like to travel prepared for going larping (as you have probably gathered over the past year of updates) and usually carry a small first aid kit (or two depending on the circumstances) to larger events. As a member of the volunteer first aiders I will tend to the hurts and ouchies that come my way – however you should speak to some of my closer friends about my treatment of their self-inflicted hangover. Buckets of water might have been threatened …

I prefer to look after myself unless I have no option, so most of the times I will raid my personal first aid kit to tend to cuts, bumps, bruises, bites and blisters before taking my ouchies to a first aider for a second opinion. With the larger events upcoming and people taking to the field for their summer of fun, I thought I might offer my thoughts on what most people should have amongst their ooc gear in their tents so that they can tend to the smaller bumps and hurts themselves.
