Lore Master & Guardian
I started LARPing because I found that throughout my youth I have enjoyed many different styles of roleplaying games such as Dungeons & Dragons, The Elder Scrolls, and also had a passion for Acting. Participating in LARP game me an additional outlet with which to pursue this passion and expand on my acting and roleplaying skills. I have since participated in multiple different LARP systems and have also participated in Bicolline with “The Voyage North“& The Warsong LARP: Brisbane, and look forward to doing so again in the near future.
I decided to create The Obsidian Chronicles: El-Rah because I wanted to develop a system that focused heavily on the roleplay element of Live Action Roleplay but still allow for players to get involved in combat when required. I wanted to create a place where people from all walks of life can feel included and have a fun and immersive roleplay experience and make new friends in the process.
Lore Master & Guardian
I’ve been a lifelong fan of RPG’s both video games and in tabletop form. I am an experienced DM who runs weekly D&D games at my university and have a passion especially for medieval fantasy drawings my stories from many different sources. I jumped at the opportunity to join a LARP group and have enjoyed every second of it.
I am excited to be a part of this bold new adventure with The Obsidian Chronicles LARP and have enjoyed helping to write the current lore. I look forward to adding my stories to the world of El-Rah so that everyone can have the wonderful role playing experiences that I have come to thoroughly enjoy.
Long live Mosath, Embodiment of Death. Harbinger of Destruction!
Lore Master and Guardian
I have always had an interest for theatre, ever since I started performing at the age of 10. Alongside that, I have also been an avid gamer and hobbyist. When I discovered LARP, I felt like I had found my perfect passion. I enjoy what LARP can do to people’s lives through the fun of combat, costuming and roleplay. I believe that people are just starting to see the benefits of LARP and we are only just beginning to scratch the surface of it all.
Players don’t have to be great actors or fighters to be great LARPers, just have a good attitude and a willingness to give it a go!
I’m excited to be a part of The Obsidian Chronicles LARP team but I’m SUPER excited to see you on the field and share with you the new and exciting world of El-Rah!
Growing up, I loved all things fantasy: reading, writing, movies, even discussing with other fantasy fans. Shortly thereafter I was introduced to fantasy games, which combined my favourite genre & my love of gaming. Skyrim, Magic: The Gathering & of course, Dungeons & Dragons were standouts. A few years later, when I was introduced to LARP. I instantly became enthralled with the idea of playing your character so completely. I love watching characters stories unfold as characters form close friendships & bitter rivalries. LARP has helped me personally as well, I have made many friends and has helped me to overcome shyness.
I want to do the best I can to help make LARP as fun & enjoyable as possible, & to keep those stories & experiences alive. I look forward to helping out with The Obsidian Chronicles & I hope that more people will come to enjoy LARPing in the same way I did.
For as long as I can remember, I’ve been obsessed with all things medieval and fantasy. Swords, dragons and saving princesses from castles were my go-to as a kid. I remember growing up if I wasn’t obsessing over Zelda, I was obsessing over Lord of the Rings, and if it wasn’t Lord of the Rings, I was obsessing over Harry Potter. From my passion for all things medieval and fantasy, I eventually took to archery and D&D, but my passion wasn’t fully realised until I stumbled upon the local LARP group. I immediately fell in love with LARP, and finally being able to live out my wildest fantasies as gallant knight or a mysterious mage – I knew that it was definitely my scene.
Cut to less than two years later and looking back on all the friends I’ve made (both in and out of game), and the worlds we’ve created and explored, I can happily say that LARP is one of the best things that’s happened to me in all my life.
After becoming enthralled with the fantasy genre I was constantly in search for new experiences within the fantasy world. This eventually led me into the world of dungeons and dragons, a game I still enjoy to this day. I host two weekly campaign at the local tabletop game store. Although I only discovered LARPing two years ago, after only a few session I fell in love with the atmosphere and wished to see the culture grow and prosper. I eagerly stepped up my involvement and shortly after was ask to help with the design of quests and plot lines.
Although my time involved with LARP Systems has been small it has helped me to gain new friends and become a much more confident person and I look forward to seeing the growth of The Obsidian Chronicles and eventually the social acceptance of LARP and similar games.
