Look me up. I am in the Omega Company encampment. We are way out in the middle of nowhere (E29). Be warned. We have a "rude" camp. I will give you any assistance I can easily give.
Drachenwald (my kingdom) usually fights for the East, so I will probably have the same color tape you have.
If you do not wish to accept assistance from outside your kingdom during time of war, look up Master Feral von Halstern, and tell him I sent you. He is always looking for more honorable, fearsome fighters for the East Realm.
And bring several pairs of good, sensible shoes. Fashion and period be damned. Foot problems at war suck bad.
I will visit. I am camping with house Ironmaiden and will be fighting with Malagentia. Feel free to come visit, we are in the bog. Or else I may see you on the field.
Thank you for the offer of assistance. I hope I don't need it but it is very kind of you.
Good advise about the shoes. I will bring real shoes to fight in and pretty ones to walk around in. If worse comes to worst I will wear real shoes with my dresses. The good thing about my dresses is that they are pretty and people look at them rather than my feet.
I would also make the suggestion that you commit the following four rules to memory. I have been attending Pennsic since 23, though I missed 27. I found these rules to be helpful.
We do a "virgin" walk on the first saturday of war week. We walk from my camp past security to EMT point (the first aid station) then to the troll, then to the camp store and ATM, then to one of the two coffee houses, and then back home. The idea is to get the new folks familliar with their surroundings, and able to get around.
Along the way, all the actives in the company carry bags of beers, and I ask the new folks to call the four rules back to me. If they get it wrong, they don't get a beer.
The rules are as follows. The call and response part is in bold
1) All that stuff in the pennsic book about good footwear, sunscreen, hydration, adequate nutrition and good sanitation, They mean that Sh*T. They aren't blowing smoke.
2) If you aren't having fun, you're doing it wrong. If you are doing it wrong, step back and fix the problem.
3) You always have the right to say no. This applies to everything. Drinking, going on a town run, drugs, birthday spankings, fighting in battles, camp chores, sex, going to court, everything. Sometimes saying no has consequences, such as catching flak for not doing your share of camp chores, but you have the right to refuse anyway.
4) Everything the minstrel says is true. Really. Honest. You believe me, don't you?
You are welcome to come on the walk, as is any other first timer over 21.
Yes, whatever the Minstrel says is true . Honest. No sarcasm here. However I will keep in mind what one of my professors said "what is true for you may not be true for another. Find your own personal truth."
Thanks for the invite. I may take you up on it, I just need to figure my schedule out. So many people are like "come here" and I am like "yay, sounds like fun" that I don't actually know what I am doing.
