New LARPer with some questions 2 Years, 10 Months ago Karma: 1  
Hi all,

Great to be with you finally. I'm totally new to LARP but will be coming to April's event the Time of Reckoning. I know they've probably been answered a hundred times over but I just have a few questions:

- When do I arrive for the even that starts on a Thursday? Like at what time? I'd love to come early and meet people and get some advice for starting out but I don't want to be alone at the sit obviously.
- What equipment is 100% necessary? I have a couple of outfits (I got into LARP through starting leathercraft as a hobby and making costumes) and an old tankard that needs a bit of cleaning. I have access to a sleeping bag and pillows if needed. I will be arriving by car so I can bring stuff with me. Can my sleeping bag be modern or does everything have to be in-character?
- I have never done the in-character thing except for drama class back in the GCSE day (some 5 years ago now) and am a bit worried about having to stay in-character, especially backstory. I've read all of the rules and the info on the setting but I don't know it well enough to really give myself a good backstory, which is irking me.
- How much money should I bring with me? Do I even need any money? I don't want to bring too much given that it's effectively camping.
- All of this stuff about skills and points and stats has me confused. I know the concept from online games etc but are you meant to keep it in your head all of the time? What about the combat? Won't I be a bit outclassed by everybody else who is a much higher level?
- I want to be a scout-type class, though I would not be averse to being a warrior. Anybody have any advice on costuming, play-style, etc?

These are my questions for now, I'm sorry there's loads but I'm excited and just a bit confused!

- Emily (Or, in-game, Riss. Which do I use??)
