Three years

When I ran When Angels Fall in March, I talked about it theoretically being the three-year anniversary of No Rest as it was 2 years and 11 months after the first game we ran at Conpulsion. On the way home from In the Footsteps of Giants today, we realised that it was exactly three years on from our first actual event – In for a Throne.

Rob’s spoken personally about how the ride it’s been over the last three years since we gambled on this working out. After three years and a lot of personal investiture, we’ve learned a lot. One of those things is that we couldn’t do it without our players and crew.

We started running this, and we didn’t know how it was going to go or if it was going to work, but we got ourselves 21 players and 12 crew for our first field event and went for it. Cue the rollercoaster as we’ve gone bigger and better to the point that we have more people who want to attend our games than we can actually fit on site – even when people are travelling 500 miles to come and play.[1]I would drive 500 miles, and I would drive 100 more; just to be the one who drove a thousand miles to play this LARP of yours” – sometimes I get very silly…

It’s been great, and I want it to keep getting better. Thank you all for supporting us and playing in our world.
