This is a fairly late post-event post, but I spent more of today eating and sleeping, like, actually. I woke up at eleven, we went out for lunch, at three there was a post-lunch nap (I fell asleep on the sofa, then was herded upstairs.), and then at half six there was picking up kit and more food and more picking up kit.
I did go to CP, and it was possibly one of my best events. I was time-in for all the time-in time (except for a monstering slot and having to hunt down a dagger which I dropped), and on Friday night was up until half-three boozing (this was possibly not appeciated by the rest of the Jhereg and some of the Al Gaia, given the kinky and sometimes explicit nature of some of the conversation that was going on - we were very drunk).
Also I caused a minor diplomatic incident with MY FACE on Saturday night, which was then escalated further by the Lord General of the Al Gaia (he tried to murder me), and then further again by the rest of the Al Gaia. It can now be described as a MAJOR diplomatic incident, and We Don't Like Them Any More. And the two Irregulars (played by Alex and Max) who led a Vampire into their camp the next morning ran there for help, totally not for petty revenge. (The truth is a combination of the two...)
So, yeah, I'll be going to talk to the Teutonians next event (that is, have a bitching session), because their Dark Elves have been attacked by Lord Hart as well.
I also bought things - a new sword (I've had a new sword every couple of years since I started larping) which is a really nice light bastard sword, and a REALLY PRETTY chain shirt for cheaper than you can get some leather. I will try to thwart the kit-curse by NOT wearing the chain on Sunday. (I'll need to get more used to wearing it while larping before missioning in it, anyway.)
Also, I went scouting! I haven't got to go on a scouting mission before (I am slow and easily tired) but this event I was feeling good on Saturday morning (and possessed a soft skill in the 'if you manage to hide, you're fine for as long as you can stay still, even if the Enemy moves their eyes' area, so I knew I could rest without getting killed), so I went along and was helpful! I used the skill to basically lie in a bush and eavesdrop on everything, and was the only member of the party to encounter something without it seeing me, and also the only one to encounter something else that no-one else saw. So, a good introductory scouting mission for me.
I also got a lot of roleplay with people I didn't really know - taking polearm (so I could actually get into fights) and moving the personality slider from quiet/distainful to snarky/distainful helped a lot. Also I introduced myself to the COMA on Sunday, and the Diplomatic Incident meant that a lot of people were coming up to me to talk, and my opinion had more weight. It was a really good event, and I'm really glad that I went.
