A brief introduction

Postby BrianBlass » Fri Oct 29, 2010 6:10 pm

Hello everyone!

My name is Brian and I have been interested in Middle Earth for the better part of a decade. I've done my fair share of LARPing as well in a fantasy setting (I know, I know) and have also been very interested in honing my survival skills. I'm currently working on putting a kit together (a slow process in this economy, especially with a 2 year old at home) but I've already learned a lot just by reading the treasure trove of information in the forums.

I look forward to getting to know everyone and to sharing pics of my progress along the way.

Mae govannen! There's nothing embarrassing about LARP or anything else like that; what we do here is simply, well...different. This isn't the big leagues, or the 'elite' version of the reenactment world. It's just different.

Now, of course, there's plenty of room for us to be biased and say that, of course, this is the BEST of the forms of reenactment out there because it combines realism with historical sources and fantasy all at the same time...but there will always be those who disagree with such an opinion, so I'll stick with different.

Again, welcome aboard! Looking forward to helping you along in any way we can, as well as learning a few things from you!

Welcome to the boards! Most - if not all - of us either do reenact or have reenacted another time period. I tried out Rev War. Ended badly. Then it was Civ War. Also ended badly. I'm just waiting for these folks to get tired of me and run me away from here too. :lol: But seriously, I enjoy the freedom being a ranger gives. It is open to your own interpretation and environment.

Again, welcome. Make yourself at home.

See I told everyone he'd get it eventually! (ducks while running away!) :lol:

Back on topic, Welcome to the forum. As you can see we're a little casual around here. You'll find a lot of great folkes with real interesting ideas who are willing to help you out anyway they can.

:lol: :lol: That's sort of the way it was with the Civ War unit. Since I didn't make a reenactment in Florence, SC. they didn't give me a schedule for the rest of the year. It was becoming a huge money drain anyway.

Thanks Pete, I needed a good laugh.

Yep we're pretty casual. That's part of the "draw" for me.
