Solstice of the Drowned 5 Years, 5 Months ago Karma: 8  
To start with thanks to all seems a bit lazy, but thanks to all for being such a tolerant, ebullent, un-put-downable bunch. The atmospheric conditions did not affect the atmosphere of this event at all.

Only my second time player reffing and what a lovely bunch of players too. When I heard I was getting six basics my heart trembled, and then was filled with affection and pride watching you all take to the waters with such courage and vigour. Everybody had nothing but praise for you, even Matt who you hit in the head repeatedly....

Thanks to the rest of the party members, for supporting me throughout the event and accepting my drillsergeant approach to fighting guidance with aplomb.

The high levels, as usual, you took everything in your stride and coped with whatever the refs, monsters and environment threw your way.

Fellow refs and monsters, throwing yourselves into puddles, sodden bracken and assorted dampness with such style and flair, I've not seen as many artistic deaths even on a dry event. your good humour and uplifting spirits helped tremendously.

Fav moments for me were seeing my little shield wall being used so well in the joint fights, and the willingness of otherwise normal people to murder people on command.

Torturing Rufus Thursday (Chioma) with cries of Spork

Schlop

General Duegar humour and dice.

Going after the Broodlord, with the whole low party bricking it cos he was a 'Lord' yet still going for it.

Schlop again.

All the banter around the long table

It was a brilliant time with a brilliant bunch of weirdos, sorry, people... hmmm, maybe I was right the first time.

Another excellent event and thanks to the refs, crew (especially Alex for the great grub and loan of the sword) and fellow players.

Particular thanks to the refs for having the WC groups have to come past the base so we could still get some fights in while not getting drenched and combined with the talky evening bit it worked well.

Despite the way station living up to its name it went really well and I was impressed by all the keen new bods who actually had a fighting line whereas we were running around randomly.

See you all in a few weeks,
Adam.

Thanks to everyone who helped make this dungeon come to life. The refs (Chioma, Paul, Bruce & Alex), the monsters, the cook Alex and his glamorous assistant Jenny...

The weather gods were not on our side this weekend so thanks for not taking us out on an overland on Saturday evening!

Great to see so many keen new faces and a sterling shield wall from the low status group.

A personal highlight was getting to fulfil my true calling and thanks to Adam/Shen Manchu for calling together the group for "an important announcement" which was actually an audience to insult Bruce's High Priest (and not to mention another evil high priest...) with a blue limerick Well if you will make rude comments about a bard...

Thanks also for everyone joining in the well-known "Pathfinder song" on Sunday morning

Well I have to say I really needed last weekend and thank you to everyone who helped take my mind of the shite that is real lifem, I had great fun all weekend (even when suffering on saturday morning )

The traditional "best bits" list:

* New players. . . always nice to see some new faces hope you all had fun and will back to play and monster in the future!
* Bardic revenge. Even the pouring rain can't stop proper bards making up lymerics to mock those who have wronged her.
* Schlop conversations. . . always nice to get an audience and try to keep up with Marks uncanny ability to make up ridiculous rules and crap up on the fly
* Kakarot and the deviant animal schlop
* Gomeric chatting up a "lady" whose wart comments put her right on his wavelength
* Fighting dark spirits and learning to love Spiritual Balance. . always pleasing.
* The Dark Spikky Plotty Corner. It seem like ages since that sort of thing went on. Bravo all plotters.
* The Kiara conspiracy and all the associated plotting. Congratulations Kiara. . remember who you owe favours too hah hah.
* Psi and it's seat related laziness. Worth taking the HQ ability for that alone
* Valens promotion. Well deserved fella.
* Halmaddons Heights and the declaration of crusade, making mercenary offers then going out with the dogs to prep nervously for what we were sure was a fight. I got very wet invoking only to see them leaving as I came back.
* Yorkie Puds!

Lots of good fun was had hopefully by all, looking forward to more entertainment in July. . I am definitely going to need it again the way things are going

I'd just like to thank everyone at the event for making it an incredible introduction to the world of LARPing. This was my first event and I was slightly apprehensive at what to expect but I was completely blown away by every moment of every day. First, the people, all of you were so welcoming, friendly and really easy to get on with that made my jump into this new world a great experience. Alex, our ref was fantastic, absolutely brilliant as a ref and as helping us nooblets get going and a proper nice guy out of game too. The monsters were great sports, even like Alex says, after being poked in the eyes a few times. I have a huge amount of respect for them for the amount of work they put into the weekend to make it as fast paced and engaging as it was. The high levels were great too, showing us the way and giving us a few hints and tips on who to tip our hats to and who to get out of the way of! They were however, a bit scarce when it came to fighting the 'Broodlord' but I'm sure they were off doing some good elsewhere? Keeping the fire going in the waystation maybe? And without forgetting the other people who made the weekend unforgettable. I don't know everyone's name yet but Paul, Bruce and others for their guidance and behind the scenes efforts and the cooks Alex and Jenny who's Yorkshire puddings I'd drive anywhere for!

This is getting a bit long now, so I'll just add that the amount of detail that went into all aspects of the weekend; the story, costumes, role playing (especially by the Goblin King, whoever that was under that nose and make-up needs to start making himself known the the Scott brothers or Mr Jackson!) really made the whole experience. I had no idea how engaged I was going to get and how thirsty I am now for more! Sadly I won't be able to come to another event for a few years but I can guarantee you that when I'm back I will be at the first event I can make.

Quote of the weekend: [lost on the winding roads near the event] "Hey look, that guy's got a beard, [Alex our ref] he must be a wizard, follow him!"

Thanks again all, see you soon.

I'd like to quickly add my thanks too.
* First thanks has to be to Paul, whose huge amounts of behind-the-scenes work made what promised to be a tiring weekend as stress-free as possible knowing that only just back from uni I would have preferred to just monster.
* Bruce and my monster crew, whose experience made my job much simpler.
* To the players, whose upbeat attitude meant the weather didn't ruin it all.

Moment of the weekend:
Completely unnecessarily messing with the newbies' minds as the Goblin King. It would have been easy to fall out of character during our conversation but they all role-played back beautifully and I really look forward to them coming back.

Quote of the weekend:
