I have had a lot going on since that last post, I had to quit a larp, I lost my job, just, some general chaos. -BUT- Some very exciting things happened today, and I needed to write this bonus post to talk about the new Make Believe Discord server!

Packing for Divine Intervention LARP: Part Two:
Costuming and Personal Effects
Part of a series in which I pack my kit for DI Larp. I pack a little heavy for this game, you will not have to pack this much in general for your standard weekend long boffer event.
This category could essentially be called: the only category that is really essential to actually play the game. One does not need to bring the food that I mentioned before, or the set dressing for their cabin that I will mention in the next post, to actually play the game.

When I came to realize that this spring marks my official ten years of LARP-iversary, I did a lot of thinking about how I have changed as a LARPer, the various experiences I have had, and where my future lies in the community.
