As a newbie...

Post by russiasan » 2012-04-17

I'm considering getting into the LARPing way of life. And have done the foam fighting thing in the past with pool-noodles on sticks. During that time, I found myself most effective with a one-hand weapon and shield combo. So (in the round-about method I have chosen to ask my question) Would I be allowed to use a buckler during my first few events?

As long as the sheild (what ever type it is) is made to our specs then yes - as a new player (1st 5 events) you just can not use armor / two handed weapons / or a bow.

A'ight. Cool. It's a shame that I just realized you guys are apparently on the east-coast, otherwise I'd be eager to start preparations now.

yes we are on the east coast

I might sugest you do a search locally using google with key words

LARP - MEDIVAL - DAGORHIR - FIGHTING - HISTORICAL

ect ... that would at least lead you to a group in your area - good luck

I just got done watching the Darkon documentary. Im concerned with a few things. How do the shots work? I do Belegarth so I know the generals of foam fighting I seen alot of people not taking shots and its kind of irritating.

The Darkon documentary is and was not a normal event it was staged therefore do not worry about what was or was not a real shot.

Feel free to come out - people take there hits.. the hits will be explained clearly - and any people that do not take their hits we have a system in place to take care of that.

Thats reassuring because the Documentary made people who play Darkon look like lunatics. And are you only on the East Coast?

We have different classes of armor as well, so a guy in plate will take more shots than someone in leather.
