Empire last weekend, HMS this weekend. HMS being one of the local systems I attend. And local I mean in anouther county. but good friend good company and a good system. So no time to do anything! I have to go up to London for work this afternoon, and we need to be on site early on friday because my boyfriend has been promoted to ref and needs to be at the morning ref meetings. So I must get everything sorted today and tommorrow! So here’s a list for myself so I don’t forget anything!
silly frilly shirt
try not to forget new cloak
frilly black coat, extra warmths!
white gloves (get them washed from last time, doh!)
elf ears (where did I put those…?)
Pop down town and get new ‘spell book’
and sleeping bag
find tent (probably should look today… where did I put that?)
scabbard (idk where it fell off…)
clean out car….
clean boots! (Juniper would never be seen in such muddy boots!)
Humm… I don’t think I need anything else… need to pack light, transferring two other people after all. In my lil Yaris! What fun!
As some might know if you’re part of the uk Larp Scene a new fest LARP had its first event last weekend, and I went. I won’t say much, as I wouldn’t want to land myself in trouble later, but let me say it was my first fest system and I have mixed feelings. I enjoyed the epic battle, I loved the tent town with the Ic areas. I thought they really should have had a larger IC area though. Me and my crew couldn’t set up in the IC area because there was no room and we felt very left out from the main events. It’s hard to try and be a hall when your stuck out by the ‘wagons’, not wanting to leave because it’s too friggen cold. For anyone interested who went to the event, it was I who started trying to create the order of healers in the mages conclave. I have no idea if anything went with that. because I couldn’t be assed to leave my camp monday morning. It was a freaking freezing weekend, the walk was too long and we had many tents to get down so we could go home and be warm. But if you know, send me a message, I am curious if anything became of my attempt to create that. I paid good mana to ensure that it would get mentioned to the other grand masters! but yes… had to really try hard to get involved at Empire, which I found hard. I find it difficult to get into small LARP crowds because i’m shy, and doing it on a massive scale… well I am impressed at how determined I got to try and make my new order. makes me almost want to go back to see it pay off… Almost. Maybe in better weather… and maybe at an event that doesn’t clash with anything else.
But yes… um… wont say much more. there was many dissapointing things about Empire, which I can only hope doesn’t repeat itself next event for them. Or it would be more than embarrising.
anouther call for UK LARPs! big or small, if you run it, your friend runs it, or if it’s this really awesome one you goto. I have a current list of 63 LARPS, there must be more in this country. Why do I want all these LARPs…? Well, you’ll find out by june ;)
Like and share, help me find the LARP’s!
These last few months I have been suffering from a terrible addiction. And that addiction would be magic the gathering. I blaim my friends who first bought some random magic cards from their local game shop, and started up my boyfriends old addiction of the game, and now I too am suffering from it.
Now I find myself surfing the net looking for good card combinations as well as cards which could improve my current prize decks. Fortunetly I feel I have probably made my ultimet deck with the arrivel of Gatecrasher, as my new deck is pretty much 80% gatecrash cards. And what a monster of a deck it is. My first made by me deck was an artifact deck, it was terrible and my boyfriend improved it into being quite playable. My second was born from buying a deck builder boxset and having too many angels from it. I made a fairly competent angel deck, and over decemeber and january I improved it, making it a slow but dangerous deck. But this deck, it is big and it is dangerous. Check it out: http://www.mtgvault.com/ladymew/decks/simics-true-power/
Though that isn’t the finished deck. It started out with 60 cards, went up to 66 as it is currently and I’m going to make it larger with 80 cards. Yes an unweildy 80 card deck. But what do i get for those extra cards? Why 4 evolution vats and 4 gyre sages. with an addition 6 lands so that the mana isn’t imbalanced. Not sure why I worry about that seeing the sages will provide all the mana I could ever want or need. In theory this deck should iniliate all, even on a poor draw where I don’t get any biomancer or ivy or ooze flux, the three golden cards of the deck.The deck was the basic simic realsed deck, but now it’s this beautiful thing of destruction with the potensity to create monsters of utterly ridiculous sizes.
I’m already squirming with excitement for the next exspantion for any simic cards which could possibly make my deck even more deadly. But then I would have to start taking cards out of course… but it might be worth it…
URGH this dman addiction. I’m not sure I could possibily out do myself with this deck. It’ll probably be my most powerful deck. I know it has elements that other players probably wouldn’t like. such as a lack of spells which might save your monsters from doom for a round. but this deck isn’t about saving monsters. It’s about making the biggest damn creatures you’ve ever seen. With the inclusion of the evolution vats this deck could potentially get more silly than it already is! Yes~ I’m so proud of it. And I just had to share ^^
I have a bunch of DoTA2 keys sitting in my steam inbox… I don’t really want them to be lying around when they could be giving someone some joy. If you’d like a DoTA2 key just message me your e-mail or steam ID and I’ll send you one. If I run out of keys then people will just have to wait until steam sends more. they send more all the time. =3=
please don’t respond to this message with your details. unless you like making unexpected new friends from unknown places. :P
Today I finally achieved Lv 25 on DoTA2. It was a least played match, everyone having to pick heroes they’d played the least. I haven’t played every hero yet, and I’ve only played maybe 100 games. So it was hard picking. swishing the heroes back and forth until I finally landed on a hero I had played once before and failed miserably at. Riki the assassin. Well the point of least played was to play heroes you don’t know and may be uncomfortable with. So Riki it was.
We had a rather carry intelect heavy team. bounty hunter, troll, the ghost lady, and someone I don’t even rememebr seeing on the map. xP. They were up top most the game, so what do I care? I laned bottom, the opposing heroes being Tiny and silencer. They had quite a few good tanks on the other team, pudge was center and centuar was up top with Slakar.
It started off slow, I was being timid. I had known riki players who had gone all game without being killed, and I was trying to emulate those played by being careful. I hit level 6 and through caution to the wind, me and ghosty went on the assault, I pounced in behind silencer and tiny and together we started to kill them. Once the kill ball started rolling Iw as unstoppable. Leveling up way faster than my team mates and I ran across the board no longer caring about the bottom lane. Taking out centuar, pudge, whoever. it didn’t matter. The other team didn’t invest in dust or the gem, it was their own fault that I wiped them out over and over again, now and then them getting the better of me. Until I noticed that holy crap I had gone over the 20’s and everyone was still near 15. I had two ultimet items and my treads, already saving for the one that gives +25 on agility. I could kill any of the tanks in seconds once I jumped behind them and did. I was an unstoppable monster and they still hadn’t bought their gem or smoke. It was ridiculous. And then I noticed how few towers we had taken down and we were over the 30 minute mark. the hell? So I went on killing, and our towers fell. I didn’t care I could handel the others. I reached 25 and was the master on the feild of battle. I think I must have had over 150 agility. I know it was something utterly ridiculous.
And yet the match still went on. “this is ridiculous. lets just finish this.” i finally pleaded to my team mates. I hadn’t been trying to take towers. just keep control on the enemy heroes. tower pushing was everyone elses job. I was the assassin after all. But ah well. We got there in the end. I was ludicrisly over fed, with all the best items I could afford. I should have perhaps gotten a few more damage items. but what did those matter once i’d popped up behind someone? >:) A very good game. Riki may be my faverite hero now… well… I still love you Troll.
