First off, a big thank you to all the people who have:

A - offered to help run events recently! Its been really nice to play for a bit!

B - Helped with events! Costumes! Kit! etc. Its been really nice that everyone has come together.

C - Voted for us at the LARP awards! Its nice to be nominated!

Next event is the first Saturday of the month in Southampton... its looking a little low on numbers!

If your coming let us know in the event ASAP and we will make a decision next Wednesday.

Hello wonderful people!

We has a great day on Saturday and it was really good to get out as a player for once.Sam did a fantastic job as a GM (as well as his team, right up to and including the Wall Golumn!)

I am looking forward however to running the next Exeter day event! Going to Crusade, going to find some heathens!

Also, we are coming up quick on the March Event! I am looking forward to it and we have such plans!

Fully of Sann goodness!

What is your favourite Sann moment or thing?

Hello wonderful people!

The new year has been great to us, we have a fantastic event coming up with Sam running and the crusaders are out in force!

Our last Exeter day event we stalked the players with a giant monster made by some of our members and our events are expanding crew all the time.

March is coming up soon, and I, for one, am really looking forward to what this amazing community can create.

My only request is that we get our wishes for the February Exexter day event plot in asap.

See you all on the flip side!

Bit late doing this, but its time for the round up, so: happy new year!

We have had our first event of the year and it was a cracker!

The Exeter event is coming up in the next couple of weeks and I am really looking forward to a fantastic day.

In addition we are looking at some changes in the club running up to the March weekend event:

1 - We are looking at having a selection of deputy refs, they are being talked to at the moment, they will keep an eye on hits, make sure that rituals are done propery, be there to check for rules etc. I will be getting in touch with them asap.

2 - We should be looking at changing the host for the website as the current one is not updating as well as it should, so if anyone has any suggestions of things they would like to see: let me know.

Hope your all having a great one and I look forward to seeing you all again!

Hey folks,

I'm looking at the wednesdays to go and this might be the last time I get to say it so:

Have a fantastic season of goodwill. Eat well. Love lots. Enjoy.

The first events are up for next year, we have March coming up VERY soon now.

Lots going on in the background with costuming making and plot creation.

We intend to make 2018 the very best year so far!

I hope I see you soon at events, and look forward to the new refs, new players, new crew all making their mark as we steadily grow and get better!

Old or new you have been phenominal and I look forward to an even better year next year! Get booking people!

Your Friendly Neighbourhood Ref.

Welp, Seasons Greetings folks!

This is probably the last update I'll be able to do before the last event of 2017.

A day out in the woods, attemping to get the situation surrounding the Automaton Missy sorted out in Loria. 

Any more crew, gratefully received, and then we are heading of to the Arcade Exeter to enjoy a mixed system tavern night!

It has been a fantastic year, we have amended the system to balance the game to make it more dangerous.

.... which happened somewhat.

Old names have fallen, new characters have feared for their lives. The system feels dangerous and somewhere that you must be careful and work together.

We have also worked hard to up the levels of costume and props. The large battered stones that have shown magic circles, the floating ghosts that drifted accross the fields etc. etc.

I look forward to next years events with great joy, and all your company, new or old.

I'll see you on saturday, or in 2018 people!

Whats been your favourite memory of 2017?

So, we are now careering towards the last day events of 2017.

This Saturday we have the excellent Southampton Day event, which will be a series of small plots that the players can pick and choose, as ever: having more crew would be great.

Then we have the third Saturday of the Month, Exeters finally event of the year, which is for Milly and Dr. Wesson. For that I appear to be the only crew, so crew would be FANTASTIC.

After which we are at the Exeter Arcade for the HalfWay Inn, a large social event for multiple LARP groups. I will be performing as StoryTeller and there will be lots of folk from many worlds to chat to.

I hope we will see you there!

This weeks question:

What would you update about your costume if you had the chance?

See you soon folks!

Good day and salutations!

First of all a huge thank you to Ryan for running the game on Saturday, it was a glorious (and bloody) day. Two deaths, a lot of fallout and a lot of fun!

The December events are creeping up on us fast, for the Southampton event we would love some more crew. 

By the way, after the event do we fancy getting a yule drink? Last one before the end of the year?

Exeter, a special for the eminent Dr. Wesson and Nurse Missy, we could do with more crew!

Additionally, after the event, there is a tavern night at the Exeter Arcade, it would be great if we could all make it along!

Very lastly: March is coming soon! Both players and crew would be great! Its Sann! Its a wedding! You know its gonna be great!

See you soon ya gloriousbwonders!

Good Day You Glorious Folk!

Thank you for joining us for this weeks round up.

This weekend of course is James Embletons first crack at reffing, if you are coming and you haven't told him: do the thing!

Then on the third saturday, Ryan will be running his first day event. We could use both players and crew!

March is coming swiftly! Get booking people!

There is one thing that I would like to address: when getting feedback from one of our crew, it was pointed out that one of the reasons that people don't crew is that it is felt that certain players don't take their hits.

Crew vollunteer their time and energy to make sure that people are having the best game possible, if they feel that they are waisting their time by not threatening the party in combats, or being ignored etc. then they will not vollunteer that time.

Crew must have a good time as well, entertaining the players, selling blows, adding patheos etc. Or they will not vollunteer and the games will fall apart.

So... if you find yourself ALWAYS standing on your own in EVERY combat, perhaps you might start to question if you are taking your hits properly.

Sorry for the heavy comments, they are details on the backdrop of some AWESOME events. So I am well pleased with how things are going!

See you soon you wonderful people!

Well, this has been an interesting few weeks.

The last two events we have run have been absolute stompers, so thank you to everyone who has been involved!

The changes to the rules have really changed the pace and danger levels of the game, making it far more gritty. The stakes higher, the chance of death also.

This November I am taking a step back and letting some new talent take the floor (a change is as good as a rest and it will be nice to play!), so if you are free to crew or play Ryan or Jame's day events this month coming: please do! Its going to be fantastic!

Very soon now we are coming to the end of the year and heading towards the first of our 2018 weekenders. This is the time to book on, to be part of the build process or make sure that your storycard is front and centre.

To those that have already purchased membership or gone even further to get the £150: thank you, we will do our best to blow your socks off in the coming months. I look forward to receiving peoples bookings in the next few months!

Your all amazing and in the next few months I look forward to being a player among you for a while!

Thanks again people!
