Two new players for next week 3 Years, 1 Month ago Karma: 0  
Hi people,

Having enjoyed Herofest twice this year as our first LARP experience, Louise & I are coming to try Heroquest next week for something new. Apart from costume - is there anything else we need to think of in advance? I assume we're not camping - but in some kind of bunk house - so I'm hoping sleeping bags is all we need. Any advice for total newbies? How many people are typically participating?

Very excited,
Paul

Hi Paul,

Welcome aboard!

We will be staying in a small and cosy heated building that has two small sleeping rooms. Mattresses are provided but you will need your other sleeping kit - I also recommend ear plugs!!

It is fully catered, as you are probably aware, but you will need your own drinks and snacks (tea/coffee/squash is provided). Cutlery and plates/mugs are available but you will need your own in character drinking tankards for the more refreshing drinks .

No doubt you have probably read up on everything but if you haven't I would recommend reading the following sections of this website as a starter: "Campaign" - "The Valley" / "Inside the Valley Nation" and "Nation Life". "Rules" - "Character Rules" - Basic Rules". Although dont worry too much about rules as I will explain them at the start of the event.

I will be playing as well, but will also be helping out to battleboard.

If you have any more questions ask away.

See you next week.

Bruce

Currently there are 13 players and about 7 monsters - we normally get some of those arriving on Friday, even though the event Time In is by about 9 / 10 pm on the Thursday.

Welcome to HQ
Make sure you both pack some warm under clothes and maybe some spares just in case the weather decides to be wet.
A head torch and some gloves come in handy as does an in character bag for snacks and drinks ( beer ) while out on your travels .

Thanks for your responses so far.

I have another question - what time is best to arrive on Thursday? I have the day off and live just over an hours drive away from the site, so can get there any time really.

Cheers,
Paul

Hard to say, the event starts around 9/10pm usually but people start arriving at various times depending on their travel plans. You can generally assume by 5pm there will be a few people around and Thursday afternoon/early evening is a great time to meet/catch up with folks as they arrive.

Sadly I won't be there until Saturday so hopefully a few others can chime in with their expected arrival times and give you an idea of when there might be a few people to chat to

See you next week

Hi there!
Im playing along with you next week. Im ksndra. Great to have new people. What's your characters?
Again lots of warm underclothes!
Ive checked the forecast for my own packing and its supposed to be cold with a few showers friday and rain Saturday so extra kit is a good idea.
And a pillow. Dont leave the house without one!
Earplugs are a great idea. We have a lot of heavy snorers *looks at mbt ant n tom*
As youre a fester I probably dont need to say but a good pair of sturdy boots and possibly a spare pair.

Myself tom (whos also playing as kyle) and ant (whos monstering) are only in Nottingham so well probs be there around 5ish.

Any questions jus ask anyone well be happy to help.

Welcome

I'm one of the monsters that will be entertaining you

I'm also one of the main crew from Fest so you will have met me along the way playing various munchkins.

Yes it is allot different, the world is the same but allot more intense with the plot being more driven along by your actions.

Look forward to seeing you there and any questions just fire away.

Hi Fay,

I think as we're first timers, we're just a 'basic' character. I'm assuming that we just need to arrive with a name and some kind of back story.

Do we need to decide what character type we are yet?

Will take up your advice on Pillows and extra underclothes. I'm not sure my costume is too waterproof

Cheers,
Paul
