Hi Emily!

I see Phil has already answered quite a lot of your questions, I'd just add that you definitely need to bring a sleeping bag & pillow (doesn't matter what they look like as effectively the sleeping area is an out of character area)

On money, generally I think people pay for events in advance (e.g. via bank transfer or cheque) so you wouldn't need to take anything extra beyond what you'd normally want for travelling somewhere. Also, I've been LARPing with HeroQuest since 2002 and I've never had any money go missing, if that helps put your mind at rest

An old tankard would be just the trick!

On character backgrounds, we do have a special "character ref" - this is a gent named MBT, who can help you come up with something. For your first event you may want to keep things fairly bland and then decide afterwards more about your character's history - but at any rate, it certainly doesn't need to be perfect up-front

On rules - there will be a dedicated player ref with the party almost all the time whose role is to keep track of how injured you are and explain any effects to you that you may be unfamiliar with.

The rules have been rewritten over the last few years to allow mixed-level parties to function together, and I would expect some of the higher level characters to tool a low-ranking character up somewhat (it's a team game).

Other people would be better placed than me to advise on costume etc but I would recommend warm clothing! (I found a fur gillet off ebay for one of my scouting characters, which could also be used in real life. Or if you've more of a budget, nothing wrong with getting a cloak!)

I'm not sure where you're based, but there's a LARP kit fair called "What's your game" in February in Gloucester where you could find inspiration & plenty of costume! www.facebook.com/events/375074232641168/

Hope you have a great time
