The brave warriors of the Silverdain wargaming club have valiantly invited the Geeks to crash an upcoming battle!
It's all the fun of tabletop gaming, but with actual hitting!
Meetup Details: We will meet in Westover Park in Harrisonburg (near the pool). If anyone gets to the park and can't find the group, feel free to text me at (540) 383-5914.
Costumes: Newbies are granted leniency for the first several battles so costumes aren't strictly necessary for this meeting. But, while you could do battle in Muggle clothing, this is also an opportunity to rock the sword fighting garb. Do you have a chain mail tunic? A battle worthy kilt? Leather armor? Then this is the place to show it off!
Weapons: There will be loaner weapons available for newbies. If you bring your own homemade weapon, it must meet certain safety specifications outlined in the rulebook (link below). For example, it can't actually be sharp or able to give someone a concussion. All weapons must have a stiff non-metal core and be padded with a semi-hard closed cell foam. An example of this type of foam would be the blue camping rolls they sell at Wal-Mart. This also has the advantage of being cheap and easy to cut up. If you have any questions about what is allowable, the fellows at Silverdain would be glad to clarify any questions. All the hits are real, so we want to play as safely as possible.
Characters: You get to pick your character. Be thinking of an awesome backstory! The type of character you choose (Mage, Fighter, Ranger, Monk, Assassin, etc.) determines your unique skills and the type of weapon you carry. At a minimum, come prepared with an epic battle name.
