Two weekends of Larp

The last 2 weekends have been spend larping with Ascendancy.

The 1st weekend was spent running up and down Shining Cliffs steep hills at the end of a very hot humid week and so was very draining.

Having officially handed in my player status and joined the referee team full time meant I could play certain characters to their full potential which was great.

This event was small group event, a precursor to next event and introduced 3 new players with starting characters to larp, but also contained several very experience players with powerful characters, no healers which made it difficult to balance, but it turned out OK, they all survived and had a good time.

This is the crew for the event doing what we do best wait for the players.

The 2nd weekend was at Murton Park, less running around, but a very open plot which gave the players chance to go in many directions and the crew chance to drop bits of personal plot in here and there, the event ended earlier than expected when the players jumped the refs with a group side plot they all decided to go on that ultimately ended with in character choices that split the player base into 3, each group with legitimate claim to their own morale high ground.

DaveP did a excellent job with makeup at the weekend, I didn't get many photos since I was very busy but here's a couple of spirit Totems Dave created.



Having finished early we still only managed to get back to my house for five where pizza was consumed.
