As Craig eluded to in his note, there had been a first foray from Malvern to try Heroquest and LARP for the first time.
I think we first heard about the club through an article in GM Magazine (featuring Ian Smith as his archer scout on the cover).
We were Russ Charles, Rich Sherwood, (Ian - a friend from school) and me. We were mostly 14 years old, but Ian was 15. We travelled up to the Hawkestone site in my mums old Vauxhall Viva (2-3 hrs each way - mum driving). We planned to monster 8 hours for the day and then come home. We met the HQ guys including Rick (at the time) Jackson at the classic service station meet up. We then waited and waited. The start was so delayed that we only played for 3 hours before it was time to come home.
I wouldn’t have missed it for anything – The whole thing was so different to ‘real life’ and also felt a bit anarchic (in a good way - Debs was telling us how she’d made her armour from road signs).
I can still remember snippits from that first fight (some bandits). It was just so exhilarating to be swinging a weapon and fighting guys up to twice our age. We didn’t have many hits and I got butchered pretty quickly by this guy doing triple in each hand. I remember looking round from the floor to see the rest of us were mostly down, except for Rich who was swinging the classic old ‘brick on a stick’ and keeping them off for a minute more…
As an extra thing we took a dictaphone and recorded our first thoughts to it all. We thought everything we said was extraordinarily amusing at the time and replayed it over and over when we got home. Sadly lost now – probably a good thing.
