John, Gunnar and I all drove 10 hours to Kansas for a Heroic Interactive Theatre Event! Interactive theatre is also known as LARPing, or Live Action Role Playing.

John is a veteran over at Heroic, but Gunnar and I were total Newbs. Overall we had a really fun weekend. We even got to meet amazingly talented fantasy author Jim Butcher who had some pretty badass home-made armor himself. In fact, pretty much everyone over at the Central Chapter was fun to hang out with and dressed to kill--monsters, that is.
John camped out in his hammock tent, while Gunnar and I shared our discounted REI tent in the sweltering summer heat. It was actually the first time I had ever been camping in a tent, and I loved it!

I went as a wood elf, John was a bear-kin, and Gunnar was gnome. I have to admit that the rules were a little overwhelming and the other players being about a hundred levels above me made it a little overwhelming at times.

I'm definitely up for trying it again, but not really willing to drive 10 hours for it ever again. Unless John asks really nicely.
