New to Larping

Hello everyone


My names Nicole, im 21 and from London, Ontario,and ive heard alot about underworld larping from my boyfriend and a few friends. So i thought after hearing so much about it i'd give it a try. Because of current situations i cant join the live action part just yet. So im hoping to start out on here as a forums character until such a time i can join a game. Im really excited to get to learn more about this and meet new people. And hopefully one day soon join a game.

Ive never actually done anything like this before, but ive seen a bit of how its played. Thier was a convention here in london a month or so back for a zombie larp. They had a bit of a chance for new people to see how the game was played. At the time i had no interest, but hearing so much about it and hearing from new people. I finally broke and thought to give it a try.

I look forward to getting to learn more about underworld larp and meeting new people. Though my character gemma is based on myself. I tend to be on the shy side, and im still learning. Im still doing research and trying to learn more. So forgive me for any newb questions that may seem dumb, or if i do something i wasnt suppose to. I'll probably have a ton of questions ahead, and am already appreciating the ones that have been answered

So hope to get to meet and know some people, make a few friends and cant wait to truly get started ^^

Nice to meet you Luna, i guess one of the things is trying to understand CP. Like what it goes towards, and how it affects the character depending on where its placed. I was just looking over the Basic Character Template, and just want to understand it correctly. before going about trying to figure out how set things up for my character

Character points are used to buy specific skills that you want you character to have. Say you wanted your character to be a medic, or a warrior, you would buy skills that gave you the ability to heal people, or lop their arm off. It really depends on what direction you want to go with your character.

When you are making a character you would choose the Race and Class, and then you would buy skills. Each game you attend will earn you a blanket (a blanket is a lump sum of CP) that you can spend on your character. 

Take a look a at Chapters 3 and 4 in the Core Rulebook In Chapter 3 you can view the skills that you can buy with your specific class, and in Chapter 4 you can view all of the skills that are purchasable with CP.

What do you mean you have more time than me?! Do you know what I do all day? I sit at a computer making things for Ralinwood. Tongue

But seriously, Brennus is a good guy. He has good advice.

hahaha xD Well my boyfriend and a friend have given me help building my character. Thank you sierra for explaining it, i'll have to have a more thorough look through the rule book. With my character being a gargylen i went about picking a blacksmith. Since i read that normal ways of healing have no affect on the race. I will definitely reread that rule book, and if i have any questions about something i may not understand. i'll be sure to ask to get a clear understanding Smile

Well that''s not really true.. The others are played by players who started in Jericho,, yes,, but the characters have only been to Ralinwood.. However with that said,, 2 of the 3 others won''t be coming back with those characters I believe and the other can''t make it to too many events I''m told.. You will be the second person to Start in Ralinwood with a Garg though!! Big Grin
