Great Edrejan Fayre 2015: Highs & Lows

It’s traditional after doing a LARP event to post highs and low points of the event, normally these are posted on Facebook but I thought ‘hey, since i’ve got this new kiss-ass website why not put them on there instead?’

I couldn’t come up with any good reason why not so here we go; as always i’ll start with the lows so that I can end on a high note.

Lows

  • Despite feeling more awake and energetic due to the controlled lowering of my epilepsy medications a combination of the hot weather and tiredness still left me flagging by the end of the day.
  • There never seems to be enough time to get around to doing everything that you want to do.
  • There was a lot of waiting around in the monster room whenever we went down to monster.
  • Watching someone spit their dummy because they shouted out a weapons call and the monster (surrounded by about five people hitting him with weapons) obviously didn’t hear them; by the time I tapped the monster on the should and said ‘You’ve been halted’ the person had stormed off.
  • At one point trying to get back to our faction camp and failing five times because each time I got called away by something, thankfully Alex bought me a sandwich so I actually managed to eat something.

Highs

  • Escaping with Excalibur as a demon high mage.
  • The pig men outside the Tesseract and watching as a combination of redcaps and beastkin leapt on them screaming about bacon – go Team NomNom 🙂
  • Really enjoying the Unicorns as a faction, great friendly bunch.
  • Enjoying being a diplomat, a different game and very interesting.
  • Being told more about redcap history.
  • Lord Oberron’s arrival and the scene surrounding the swearing in of the two new fey princes.
  • Lots of entertaining and different monster roles.
  • The refs making good use of limited monsters in the final fight and trusting the monster crew not to take the p*ss with the abilities we were given.

Overall i’m very much looking forward to the next event, planning on stocking up on coffee/energy drinks in an attempt to keep me going throughout.
