So tired here, freshly bathed after I fell asleep on the couch during Star Trek, but a very satisfied girl !
This weekend was Eternica, one of the oldest LARPS in Flanders. I must say, edition XVIII was allright ! Didn’t start too well, tho, since they never handed out the NPC characters in front. I prefer to have my character at least some days beforehand, so I can see to the appropriate clothes. I’m not exactly a standard confection model…
friday I was offered the leading part in one of the main plots that will
go on over several weekends, and after some doubts -it’s gonna be a
lonely part- I said yes. I was playing a really nice and cute gypsy,
stepdaughter in an Elvish gypsy family. I was having these nightmares
about my imprisoned and very scared brother, tho my stepdad kept telling
me I didn’t have a brother, only a real father who was trying to kill
me since my birth. The players just accepted this weird story, even tho
they admitted there had to be something fishy about it.
Then this runemage turned up, a priest from the god of evil/cold/war Kalt, who claimed that he could help me free my brother and reunite us. I trusted this guy, so I agreed on partaking in the ritual. All players thought it was a very bad idea, so did my stepfamily, but I insisted, and the players didn’t do a thing to stop me.
Saturday afternoon, my murderous father turned up, and was easily captured by the players. He told them that he had to kill me cos he kept having this visions sent by his goddess, telling him that I was very bad news. I kept moaning that I didn’t want to die, and the players believed me and killed him. At night they -instigated by my stepdad who didn’t trust the whole thing- tried to kill the runemage before he could start on the rituals, but they failed, so…
He gave me a part of a human sacrifice, and I got into trance and went for my brother, followed by a band of players. My bro was imprisoned in a cave for like 200 years, and was writhing in utmost terror. I went for him, held him, and went for his amulet, all in trance. Then the runemage took that amulet and stabbed it right in my heart ! I cried out, and while I was transforming into a much more selfconcious creature, the priest started to explain what was going on: he had just reunited both parts of the SLUMBER that had been severed ages ago. The players present froze in fear, as my aura became clear: I was the AVATAR of TERROR !!!!
They fled in panic, and I started walking the earth, not powerful yet, only an aura of 3 metres, but feeding on the fear of all who crossed my path… Mwuhahahahaaaaaaaa !!!!
I’ll be growing stronger and become their biggest problem next time. Heh, was a really fun part ! I just lost my voice over it, dunno yet how I’ll teach for like 7 hours tomorrow 🙁
It was really fun… The gypsy got a lover and all too, LOL.
Nice detail also: the LARPweekend before, I had been playing an oversexed demon who finally rapes a fierce warrior, and leaves him with an egg. Since the players then closed the demongate to their realm, I wasn’t there anymore, just the egg, which was being held warm by one of the priests. The warrior fell in one of the fights, and a little bit after that, the priest felt that the egg was about to hatch, so he threw it in the woods, and a couple of minutes after, he heard the voice of a little boy, in the body already of a full grown man, with demon horns, a lot of fighting skills already, but the mind of a five year old: the little son !!! (played by the former dad). I thought this sooooooo cute !!! He calls the priest ‘uncle Nerwyn’, and when he came across one of the other lovers of his mum, he sniffed and said ‘you smell like my mum’, all cute and all.
Hehe, indeed, a great weekend was had. 🙂
