I am running a barbarian themed social event which is going to include Live Action Role Playing game elements. The event is called "Gathering of the Barbarians", and is going to be held the weekend of September 14th at the site of the Middlefaire Renaissance Festival in Hillsboro, TX [Disclamer: This event, although run by one of the staff of Middlefaire, is not associated with Middlefaire.].
At this weekend long event, there will be a tavern for socializing, drinking, and arm wrestling, and an arena area where there will be a gladiatorial tournament and a combat gauntlet. There will also be a combat area for "random encounters" with a story line behind it. (All combat using the safe foam/latex weaponry used by Live Action Role Playing). Due to the date of the event, it is encouraged for people to attend in a loincloth, although a participant can attend in any style of barbarian-style attire. It is a heavily themed event as well, and participants can come out as any type of barbarian style character, including the traditional loincloth clad barbarian, a viking, a primitive cave dweller, or even fantasy style creatures ranging from orcs and trolls to mythological creatures such as minotaurs and satyrs. The event costs $10 for the weekend for those that simply want to socialize and not do any combat. For those that want to participate in the combat, registration costs $25. We are encouraging people to pre-register for the event (which does not cost anything, just gives us a heads up as to how many people to prepare for) at our registration site, http://gatheringofthebarbarians.eventbrite.com and you can visit our facebook page at facebook.com/gatheringofthebarbarians to read about everything that's going to take place.
Please be aware that this event is for those over the age of 21, due to the probability of alcoholic consumption (and I don't want to spend the entire event making sure there's no underage drinking). No person under the age of 21 will be permitted on site.
