Now that I have used the frame for the majority of its' intended purposes I can give a full review of it. Tomorrow into Friday I will post a blog on using the frames to dye silk. For now, the actual frame. Tap the nails into the frames before adding the legs. This will let the frame sit flush...

Final day of the frame itself. This took a bit longer than I had planned since I had to stop halfway through to go look at vehicles. Hence why it starts outside but ends inside the house. I will suggest gluing outside, but everything else doesn't have to be done outside. What you will need for...

I've been discussing Chivalry and it's practice and ideal with friends of late and thought some of that would be interesting to some of you as our world in Myths is based heavily on the medieval period specifically of Europe and the Near east, though not exclusively. (obviously viewed the the...

By now you probably read my blurb on what animating on photoshop looks like, but there's not much out there on HOW to animate on photoshop. Seriously, when I was starting all I could find was a single video, and that was just a few months ago. So here is a good write up in how you can animate...

Creating a Language

New languages can be a scary cliff to many, and creating one an even more daunting task, but in the end the result is epic gameplay! The biggest hurdle when creating and working with your own language is not so much the creation, but using it afterwards. Going through your dictionary and piecing...

A short, pudgy elf trods into the outskirts of town. She used to know the area well, but she had been gone for a very long time. A lot had changed. The homes had changed hands, many of the faces were unfamiliar to her, and only a few of the familiar faces flashed with scant recognition of her....

Animation is a fickle process, but fun enough to take a break from the normal heraldic blogs. (Don't worry, my choices are still based off the heraldic versions) As some of you know I have been working on various animations, the first being a test: the dragon breathing fire that Artenen added...

Just wanted to toss this out there. Larp chapters constantly watch for phone use during games and even this last game I saw many players endlessly lost in their phones during setup and teardown and a bit in game. I'll be the first to admit that I'm addicted to phones and tech. It's decreased...

Hello everyone, as a new player to Larpcraft I found one of the most appealing draws was the fact that I could choose from the diverse set of skills. It was kind of a daunting task to dig through all of the skills, plus professions, plus racial skills. So I wanted to make an easy to use that...

I've always been fascinated by the steampunk genre of Larp. The few groups that do this type of gameplay seem to really enjoy it and I've always wondered about using it for a LarpCraft system someday. When the American Frontier game set came up, we tossed Steampunk in there so we'd have some...

Running a larp... sure, people can manage that. Running a site is more of a suck, but we do it because we love this community. [ATTACH] I'm not trying to rant but I need to vent a little bit... we have to constantly keep up with security and net regulations and updates and hack patches and mod...

As we wrap up the 2016 year, we embark on some pretty new and exciting things coming down the pipeline. 2016 was a rollercoaster for LarpCraft as we adjust for additional game systems, more online roleplay and the separation of in-game and out of game areas of the site. As the dust continues to...

Augmentation and Cadency By Kim Brunner Augmentations can come in two different ways; first with birthright and second with “honour” meaning the augmentation is awarded by the pope or crown. The first variation is known better by another word: Cadency. Cadency is one exception to the rules of...
