Epic, epic, epic. Nearly Twelve hours of LARP. I ache so much all over, but oh gods, was it worth it? Hell yeah.
First there was monstering, and it was just like any other Sunday - with some extra epic with what was happening.
Then our mission happening! And FIGHTING ACROSS TWO FIELDS AND THE STRAY against angry farmers and dragonkin. And then Conock's forces appearing and the rest of the party going 'yay!' and me going 'who?' and Taivus going 'Wait don't kill me I'm on your side!' And me getting bopped on the head repeatedly by the people in the party with two-handed weapons and then falling over.
And at the end, even more epic with the mass buffs and getting grouped together with two people who kept running off to opposite sides of the camp and then one of them falling over in the long weeds (I don't think there were nettles. There were thistles, but my legs would have noticed nettles if I'd walked through them - or tried to grapple Jeff through them).
Also, yay holding off one of the monsters by myself while everyone else was off around the other side of the tower (I think) getting buffed. We just kind of looked at each other, snarled, he charged and then backed off when I started hurting him more than he was hurting me. ^_^ And then people with weapons and such came up on both sides and took over, which Claw was annoyed about because she'd actually been enjoying that in a 'See! I am a proper beastkin even if I do live with humans!' kind of way.
Gah. My plot-item got broken at an end of combat when me, Feodor and Orius all had our toughness spells expire at the same time, while standing in more-or-less the same place, and fell in more-or-less the same direction. Orius fell on Feodor, who fell on me, and I fell on the cup. No wonder that hurt so much. The stem fell completely apart as I was running after Jeff, and then I spent ages looking for the bits. T'was very sad. Shall have to try and get it fixed with wood glue and tape OOC, and magecraft IC.
T'was also funny to have someone run up to me and try to bandage my chest after one of the monsters exploded and set me dying. And then someone else heal me for only one point of damage everywhere and wonder why I didn't get up. I said enough words that they were sure I wasn't actually dying, but then I had to use auramancy to let me ignore the horrific wounds enough to move and then fight more.
