Usually the weapon maker will repair the weapon they made as long as it's not too old.

Not handled any weapons from online only traders and am beyond unaware of who stocks larpinn, so opinion there in non existent- really helpful eh!

However, working with having a Larp and dealing with weapons from a lot of traders has shown me different styles, Usually most people would go with a blokes opinion and obviously many larpers have experience and opinions on different weapon makers.

What sort of sword are you looking for? Like are you most concerned with look, weight, cost, longevity???
As that'll make a difference to where you should shop.

All of this is irrelevant to the sword you've found on larpinn

Hehe cheers sky.
The issue with getting mine repaired is getting hold of alex n getting it to alex, repaired, and back before july. Lol.
I want something thats lightish. Id say no heavier than my flame sword else I jus cant weild it well. Not with my shoulder. Its gotta look nice. Im not a fan of plain swords. There needs to be some kind of intregue.
Moneys always gonna be an issue but im willing to pay that bit extra lol.
The only thing that concerns me with the one ive seen is its only 26 quid...

Got a link? Sounds a bit cheap to me...

I usually go for something a bit plainer, which is as much a RP choice as anything, but I tend to think that the more fancy bits a weapon has, the more things to break it has.

Yes, that is nice. It's a short sword, which goes some way to explaining the price.

Don't take this the wrong way, but for the amount of fighting you're likely to do as Kass, I think it looks like a pretty good option.

I've never really looked at LarpInn before, but there's some nice things one there. Must look more...

I agree with Phil. When I'm playing my sorceror carrying a weapon is a secondary consideration and if I've gotten it out something has probably gone badly wrong.

Thats what I was thinking. I only really use my sword as defence when I dont panic lol or if ive used alot of my slots. Especially as I can do a decent madical damage with my sword when I need to. Or I get really annoyed n think this char (not person the character theyre playing) needs a beating lol xx

Faye,
If you email me thewhitewizardsworkshop at gmail dot com and I will sort out for you. If any of the Gloucester boys are at the next event you are on, if you ask nicely they may be willing to bring it down this way.
