Prospective Gain!

Post by frost240 » 2012-10-11

Hi all! Just wanted to introduce myself here and maybe just maybe i can convince someone to extend a helping hand. My name is Paul, and i am 25 years old. Ingame name currently under thought... I will be living in Silver Spring, MD next month and hope i can dive into this new world. Dont know what my work hours will be at this time. I havent done anything like this before, but i am eager to learn. Not sure on how things are done. Just dont know where to start. Will be doing more research on character names, and details. Hope to see you all sometime! Thanks!

I wouldn't set anything in stone until you figure out what you like. Lots of concepts don't work out. I would advise some forum creeping then attending an event. Make your rounds with the different units, ask questions, go fight.

Thanks for the advice! I will be reading the rulebook front to back and look at each class abilities.

Also, are there anyone around here that makes clothing? If not, then i will have to look into getting a sewing mechine and such. Maybe that can be a great hobby for the wife to do, she also wants to get into this.

There are people who make clothing here. Ask any of the costume marshals (myself included) and we can either guide you to someone who can do it, give you places to purchase already made clothing online, or even make it for you. Most of us can sew and know others who can as well.

A costume marshal should always be in the check-in line with a paper and pen asking you for country symbols and requirements, checking that you have your class requirements (new people don't need to worry about that part), and inspecting your garb. There may be more than one of us, but always at least one.

The key thing is to ask, which you are doing already. There should be enough people there willing to help you out. I generally bring some extra garb myself because someone in my country might need it, and I know others do the same. The price usually is that you fight for us that event.

Love to see you at Darkon but for regular events using similar rules try ORCS LARP.
