Hi there! :-)

Just wanted to write a quick hi and introduce myself. My name is Kate and I am a co-owner of NERO Nexus, a LARP here in the central Illinois area. I'm looking to meet gamers in the area who would be interested in trying the "darker" side of role-playing. We don't do rock, paper, scissors here... if you want to slash someone with your sword, you slash them (or try to) with your sword. Yes, we are a full-combat, fully immersed role-playing game where you ARE your character from Friday night through Sunday morning. Fighter, mage, rogue, human, elf, hobling, we have it all. If this sounds like your cup of tea or if you have any questions send me a message. I look forward to hearing from you soon!

Thanks!
Kate

Wow. And this is legal?

lol, yes it's legal. We use PVC boffer weapons and a point-based damage system, so we're not actually hurting anyone. Spells are incanted and then a packet (of cloth and birdseed) is thrown at the target. If you hit, the spell goes off. If you miss, you lose the spell. Here's an example of a town battle:

You can just call him Thoth :)...
Interested? Not so much now that I find out you don't hurt anyone :-/
My wife would kill me if I added another hobby on top of my already busy life.

So, do you recruit your wizards at baseball fields, then?
