TOPIC: I want to play

I want to play 5 Years, 10 Months ago Karma: 0  
Hello, I want to do Live action role-play, but I am in-experienced and do not have spare money.
Should I try monstering?
What advice can you give me?

depends the magic of playing is a lot of fun.

But monstering also will give you points for your character when you eventually play. but it also gives you an idea of how the system works and how each thing works. its great fun.

it will give you experience and a good time.

ok, so if I were to monster the next event how do I do so?

(also I imagine being at the event will allow me to meet people who can give me further advice)

you've created an account and expressed an interest, first step over

In my opinion monstering is the best thing to do for someone who is just starting out. It will give you an insight into the rules, regulations, do's and do nots, how to fight safely and you also get the advice from lots of experienced sources with which will happily trade you said advice for beer.

The next event is the Blood and Ruin event....
Found here ---> www.heroquest-larp.co.uk/larp-events/eve...;month=01&day=26

click on it and it will take you to a new page, half way down said page is a sign up to monster button, McClick away on that and make sure that it takes you to a page that corresponds to the Blood and Ruin details, its not labelled as such and your looking for the "January special" link.
Theres a drop down menu which you should change from play to monster then click "book now".
You will be taken to a new page which gives you some more details and .....from memory....it will ask you if you want house catering (£30 for a 4 dayer but i could be mistaken) or if you are self catering. Self catering is free and i know from personal experience that there is a cooker there with 4 hobs and a grill (as i am also a pauper) My advice on that front is buy easy food like cans and such, there is a fridge that works and tea/coffee is provided.
Sorry, got sidetracked...after the cuisine option i think it will ask you to confirm, again if i am wrong im sure someone will point it out.
Hope some of this helps and fingers crossed i will see you on the Thursday evening.
If in doubt, ask. We don't bite. (Alex does but you can ask jed about that at a later date...)

Thanks for answering but, my question is not how do I join but, How do I be/roleplay a monster at the next event.
What will I need in terms of costume and things like that?

literally as its a four day event, you will want enough spare clothing for you to change,

glove (preferably black)
Sleeping kit. (ie. Sleeping bag pillow and stuff)
Torch
drinking vessel
Snacks and drinks
A positive attitude
decent boots. i cannot stress enough decent boots white trainers look crap and wont give your ankles any support decent boots hiking boots will support them.

its a great laugh monster kit is supplied as is weaponry.

equipment like costume and weapons is sorted

its just improvised acting. most the time your just doing the monstering fighting or been one of the guys in the background and sometimes in the front playing a role. its just a way to learn the system. the players are the ones who do the real work remembering how many times they been hit power used mana used

you get a set no and all u have to do is remember that. but a referee will go through it with you. monsters have it easy.

Monsters have it easy?

speak for yourself mike, we die on average at least 10-15 times an event....it's ok for you lot with yer spells and flashy zappy shizzle...we're supposed to take a kicking each and every fight.
Now take it back, or do i have to teach you how to duel again?

10- 15 times ah we usually do die 40-50 times an event depending on what monster playing. ah easy.

everyone takes a kicking, but players have to remember what we got hit by.

Monsters just lose hits and dont worry about it keep fighting and die well.

ANOTHER DUEL.... I'm there... swords, rapiers, pistols or sword and shield combo lol. he he loved the last duel.

I'm not too familiar with the rules but, I am slightly surprised to hear that players can die so many times. Is there some sort of revival system.

I'm used to playing multi-player Minecraft on Hardcore mode (one life and a ban on death).

Anyways, I will check my schedule to see if can attend.
