Into the Maelstrom
Aieeee! I've just signed up for an Easter weekend of LARP with Maelstrom. Do you have any idea how long it is since I did any serious live roleplay? Not to mention on a camping weekend?
But I've heard great things about Maelstrom. Those who go become wildly enthusiastic about it. Unlike the alternative big events in the UK, it doesn't centre around an inevitable battle. It's adult-only. The advanced rules/serious background are only discovered by experience. Its feel is Renaissance onward rather than Medieval, with tons of added wierdy stuff. There will be tricorn hats and people with animal heads (Black Lace would not aprove!) and blackpowder pistols. And, no doubt, mud.
Does this count as my midlife crisis?
