What are the facilities like?
Excellent! Hot showers, clean bogs, plenty of water and a massive site. All praise to Huntley Wood!
Tell us anything else you would like to about Your Game World, and How Your Events Work
Heathen LRP is set in Anglo-Saxon Britain, at the time of the great Heathen Army. This was, for those who haven’t read/seen Bernard Cornwell’s excellent Last Kingdom series, when a huge organised raid swept through the Kingdoms of East Anglia, Northumbria, Mercia and Wessex, forcing King Alfred to flee to Somerset.
But it’s also a world in which religion and magic are real – we’ve taken the scribes at their word so when they claim they saw a dragon, there really was a dragon. The Pagan beliefs haven’t died out, so there’s tension between God, the Saxon Gods under Woden and the Viking’s alien gods under Odin.
New players don’t need to know anything about the period at all, and kit is pretty easy – a tunic and trousers will get you 90% of the way there
