Viola keeps these bone dice in her pouch at all times. You never know when you might need to kill some time, make some coin, or roll to solve a dispute.

The dice are from @makeyourownmedieval and I was given them for “winning” the Skill at Arms at Abbey Medieval Festival… and they’re fab!

Here are a few dice games you can play at events (or at home in iso) with 2+ people:

– 42

– Farkle

– Fightin’ Dice

– Left-Right-Centre – Liars Dice

They’re all somewhat similar, but still a lot of fun! I found most of these online/in sub-Redits and then cleaned them up to make them more reader friendly, so if they look familiar, thank you for sharing so that I can also pass them on!

Feel free to share them!

Character: Gwendolyn Bishop

Larp: Blackpowder and Bloodlines (game 3)

In games 1&2 of Blackpowder and Bloodlines I played my preist charcter, Genevieve Gillroy. This year I decided I wanted to experience different aspects that this larp had to offer as it will only we played over a 5 year story arc, with 1 game per year.

After a lot of planning, deliberation and changing of ideas, I came out with Gwendolyn.

Her outfit is pretty much completely made by me, including the layers underneath that you can’t see. The entire outfit consists of:

A white cotton chemise, white stockings, handmade stays, two pockets, a bum roll, a cotton underskirt, a grey linen skirt, a grey/brown coat (lined with linen), very slightly tea-dyed apron and wool arm warmers. My cute hat is from Mytholon.

Would you like a post showing all the different layers?

A few weeks ago at Swordcraft I ran with The Blades of the North, a Norse inspired warband. I finally got a good chance to pick up my bow and arrows again as well as play around with a Calimacil Dane Axe. Needless to say, it was a LOT of fun.

I made the blue dress and dark blue hood in a bit of a rush, but the rest of the outfit is made up of some awesome stuff from Mytholon:

This past weekend I spent my time with a company of wonderful 15th century reenactors called the Company of the Phoenix, who are a group of incredibly friendly, funny and passionate people. Through their generosity, I got to learn so much from them and experience my love for all things medieval in a whole new way. I am just so, so greatful for the experience that I have had and want to thank the wonderful owners of Make Your Own Medieval for their kindness and generosity.

Here I am wearing my brand new handmade hood by The Crowned Heart, hanging out outside of our encampment.
