Or Purkish weddings throw you!
This PEL is more of an in game story of the event, and less a recounting for the event holders of what happened to the players. Although hopefully it for-fills both entertainment and practical purposes. This Post Event Letter was written for the Mythical Journeys event that took place in May 2017 in Pomfret Ct.

This Post Event Letter was written for the Mythical Journeys event that took place in April 2017 in Pomfret Ct. Still writing things like a long list, but hopefully it’s getting more interesting.

The recent Dagohir event on the Boston Common inspired me to go to one of their practices for the first time. Now my definition of battle game needs to include full contact. Try a battle game before you’re old and injured. Like in your early 20’s. There is plenty of time later in your larping career to try lower impact campaign style larps.

Someone used to being ruled by arbitrary whims of those of higher social status. It made a whole new spin on the character.

If you haven’t heard of it yet, Mythical Journey’s is a fantasy campaign larp based in Pomfret Connecticut, USA. The game has been running for 20 ish years, and the same company also runs the Connecticut Renaissance Faire. Without sounding too much like Ad copy, the game is definitely worth checking out if you’re in the New England area. As a new player I found the character creation process a little tricky. The rules are a hybrid of hit point and hit location larps, which means it’s familiar, but just tricky enough for me to make newb mistakes. Here’s what came out of some simple
