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 November 2016 in Pomfret Ct. It was my first MJ event, and this was my first PEL. This one starts off a little on the plain side, but as I write more PEL’s they continue to get more interesting.
This past Mythical Journey’s event included an interesting personal incident. Townsfolk blamed Gayland for murder and ordered him held without trial under threat of death. After unwarranted (literally) confinement, and a bit of torture, the situation felt like something that would happen to a villein. Or maybe a plot from an Elise Peters book (the wonderful Brother Cadfael series). I chose to have Gayland react to the situation in a way that seemed fitting for a low class bonded farmer. Someone used to being ruled by arbitrary whims of those of higher social status. It made a whole new spin on the character.
Hey, I’m in a video. It’s a short, personal trailer for Mythical Journey’s Spring 2017. We’re finding out what Eluvian has been up to over the winter. Previously our characters encountered The Professor, a known Necromancer. Supposedly he’s been brought to justice.

While attending the New England LARP Conference (NELCO), I was able to see Claus Raasted presentation on Larp Tourism. Simply put larp tourism is traveling to another country to attend a larp you wouldn’t normally go it, using your vacation dollars. This actually changes the mindset of the amount someone is willing to spend. Spending a few thousand dollars on a vacation is much more reasonable then the idea of spending a few thousand dollars to attend one larp event. Spending a few thousand dollars for room, board and battles on a grand scale seems really reasonable.
