Hey there. ^^

So, I stumbled upon you guys by chance but I have to say I would /lovelovelove/ to get into something like this. I've always been into literary role plays and such, but have never been able to really find LARP groups. Anyway... I really have no idea where to begin with jumping into this but I'm awfully excited to.

haahaahaa! I know the feeling! I was exactly the same as you just a mere 2 months ago!

The best way to jump in would be to come to Desert Breeze park (Durango and Twain) this saturday around noon and come chat to us, and our guests (we are being invaded! Death to all Invaders! - Until the fighting ends...) and prepare to have a giggle!
They are all nice - well... We do have one lil troll who is kinda scary - but you could run faster than him so you should be ok.
Come meet us all, find out more, watch, join in, have fun!

Oh - and fun is what it is - see you saturday I hope Very Happy

Gods no!
Join in - have fun - there are (as far as I can unofficially say) two main rules - play safe and have fun!
We have a handful of ladies who fight (I am one of them...) and one of them is a very good instructor - Izmiranna Peregrine. If you do want to fight saturday, I would suggest getting a few tips from her first as she is rather good at getting the best out of you. She was the first one to teach me how to hold a sword and shield in a way that made sense to me (the others were guys and it never felt comfortable or really easy) and that made it turn from daunting to delightful!
I would be willing to show you what I know but it wouldnt fit on the back of a postage stamp yet... lolz

Oh - and if you are wanting to fight, wear sensible clothes - It gets hotter and hotter so lightweight, durable clothes that you can move in easily are best - no jeans - they are far too hot!

Apart from that bring enthusiasm Wink

We have loaners and will teach you the rules, and have you sign a waiver and then we'll throw you at the wolves, or the Orcs or the Trolls or the lions, whatever is on the field.

Just one thing, we are not a LARP per se. Our Roleplay is only in backstory. We fight full contact, its more of a sport. If you are looking for a LARP talk to Ares if he's presen, or Taco. Ares runs an AMTGUARD group and they do Roleplay (magic weapons, hit points, etc) They do fight, but its with a slightly different rule set and mentality. Or talk to Knubbs, or Wolf who also play NERO which is also a LARP. Like Amt, they have more roleplay but their fighting is more touch based kind of like Rolemodels.

We fight dude. Thats what we do.

Fer'sure. I'll keep that in mind. I just like learning, I don't have a gender preference on teachers-- just as long as they push me. But, I'm definitely up to fight on the first time I go. I look forward to meeting you all. ^^ Thank you, for the warm welcome, Prysm.

And my apologies, Konrad. LARP was the first thing that came to mind to call it-- I actually prefer action and sport in this sense. So, backstory stuff is quite dandy to me. Screw touch based, you guys are more what I'm looking for. Heh.

WooHoo!
Another girlie fighter! And Izzy would push you - so would anyone tho. I mentioned her cos women do fight differently to men (centre of gravity and all that science stuff) but I have both male n female instructors - just people I get on with and who know me enuff to knock me out of habits...

As for the warm welcome - you are welcome - you will get a warm welcome from all - I just got there first Razz
cheers

Kits may be available today, but as a noob to a noob, can I suggest you play for 2-3 weeks first to get a feel of the different weapons (we have loaners so you can try em out no problem) before you decide to buy. Only reason I say this is, what if you buy a kit for a 28' sword - but find that a short sword is more your thing? Or that you are an ace with an axe? Or that you wanna be a pike man?

I waited 6 weeks before deciding what I want and am getting a dagger and a sword (28" counterbalanced) and I know for a fact that my money invested wont go to waste on a weapon that isnt suited to me.

Come out, have fun n try different things.



See you on the field of battle!

Well, I'm a little miffed. I was all ready to come out today, even got some new pants to move in. Work's calling me in though and I couldn't say no since I'm trying to impress them so I can be transferred to the gaming department. Is it alright for newbies to come check out that Black Lions practice on Wednesday?
