Hello Emily, welcome to the boards.

As these are out of character forums then you real name is good
I'll have a go at answering your questions.
- Arrival on a Thursday is up to you. folks will often be on site from around 5-6pm onwards though we don't tend to start until 9pm-ish.
- The event is at Consall which is a Scout camp so you will need sleeping bag and pillows. Modern day stuff in the sleeping areas is fine. There is a list of suggested kit somewhere on the site
- We do stay in character for the whole event (except for battle boards after combat). Don't worry about back story, have a rough idea what you want so you can chat in vague terms if asked. It's not often that someone asks you background details in character as a new player. However there are plenty of people that can help you with this before the event.
- You don't need money on the event assuming you have already paid.
- Yes the rules can get a bit mathsy but there are short timeouts called battle boards where things are recorded and it's the battle-boarders job to sort that out/ do the math... you just try and remember what happened to you. As for skills starting characters have guild assistance (effectively spells etc that are cast even things out with higher level characters).
- You play the type of character you want, choose a base race template (orc, elf or human..note these don't have to be you race just racial type i.e. a dwarf is normally based on the ord template [strong and tough, poor at magic]). Scout types tend to be the ones who go ahead of the party to give folks warning. I can't really suggest costume or play style as that is up to you. (I have a scout characters who is a cowardly 1/2 orc that is generally a waste of space).

Anyway feel free to ask questions here and I am sure folks will help. (there is also a Heroquest Facebook group).
