  1. Hey guys,

    Thanks for the plug! We appreciate the plug and would like to plug you back.

    We do have weekly and biweekly events to expand our community which, in all of my LARP experience, is one of the strongest. I host these personally although many of our players have had events.

    We've had pool parties, "girls night out", combat practices, weekly movie nights, etc. Our movies do have a theme. We watch only realistic medieval films.

    Lots of fun.

    Who do i give the thank you to?

    Joe Landolfi
