    Yay for finishing the better abs challenge, for going strong and for cool things

    Comment


      Congrats on Better Abs, and good luck for your LARP.

        Grats for better abs ; and hoping the voting goes smoothly, justly , and peacefully. Here in France we are about to have the presidential elections Sunday in 7 days (first round) and then 2 weeks after (second round. Sadly I do not expect it to be peaceful. And in early June we have the legislative elections (parliament) which will be very very important as the parliament is designed the "counterpower" to the president, normally. We will see. wishing the best for Hungary.

              What kind of LARP is it?

              I used to go to a lot of them, have been thinking about finally signing up again for one for a while.

                At home, it wasn't peaceful. My sister and I, who voted for the opposition, got into surprisingly intense conflicts with the rest of the family. My sister can be quite domineering when she argues about politics. But I didn't bring up the topic even once and simply tried to react to what was said to me, and still couldn't avoid the conflicts. I think this was the first time I tried to get away from my hometown as soon as possible.

                The day in the "office", on the other hand, was surprisingly pleasant. It was a relief that we could cooperate harmoniously, and talk and joke around freely despite the fact that some of us were delegated by the opposition, and others by the governing party. There was no attempt or even intent to cheat either, in my committee at least.

                As for the results… FIDESZ won one more term, so they'll rule for 16 consecutive years. I wouldn't mind that (the current opposition is incompetent), but they also got a ⅔ majority… They are now cemented in their rule far too much.

                It's set in the organisers' own original world. The setting and the origin story seems to be mostly inspired by high fantasy works and ancient mythologies, but from what I've seen and heard so far, political schemes and court intrigue are going to be the main focus. I just hope my lack of experience at intentional deception won't lead to my character being quietly put out of the way on the second day already.

                  Sorry for the family conflicts due to politics. Hugs!

                    Thank you, PetiteSheWolf ! I'm sure it'll get settled soon, at least until the next elections.

                      That sounds like a super interesting LARP, always loved the ones with more role play then fighting the most, have fun!

                        Rissa thanks, I hope that I will enjoy it! Their main event is a yearly 10-12 day long LARP in the summer, and in spring they have this smaller one. They promised there would be less rules in spring, I hope that's true.

                        In the meantime, the organising of our summer Tolkien camp is underway, too! Tomorrow we'll discuss which identity each pair of team leaders gets, and then we can begin the best part: building it up!
