I am going back to LARP. It wasn’t something I thought I would ever do so I am a little surprised at my enthusiasm for it. I stopped around three years ago as I thought someone suffering from violent voices actually running about wielding weapons wasn’t a good idea. The system had grown stale in my eyes as well and so I thought moving on from it was for the best.
Then a friend of mine set up a post apocalyptic system that sounded much more interesting. I haven’t been yet as I have resisted going, however the more I think about it, the more I want to go. It was sold to me as ‘Fall-out’ meets X-Files and today I have been deciding what I am going to play.
I decided to go for a scientist. I want to be able to create augmetic limbs not unlike a tech-priest from 40K. I have no idea whether this is possible or if it will work but I will neevr find out sitting about at home.
Going presents a couple of problems for me. One is gathering the relevent bits of gear to make myself look half decent when I go. A labcoat and microscope is high on my list, and I managed to pick up a kid’s science kit at a car boot sale today as well. The second is my level (or lack therof of) fitness. I have been wanting to shape up for a while and it seems this will be the reason to do so. I’ve been going on walks daily, gradually increasing the distance, and I have been eating a lot healthier too.
I am looking forward to giving it a go at the end of October as it looks like a lot of fun. I can only give it a try after all! If anyone else is interested in going along, the website is here:
