I have been shopping around for gear. Armour, garb, weapons, etc. I totally understand that like any hobby LARP has cost attached to it. I love that myths & legends is immersive and wants the game to be authentic. How does it work for guys like me who are first getting into the game and don't have a few grand to buy all the gear up front? Also I know many of you have been playing for years. How long did it take you to get your kit to where you want it? As a side note I wish I could have recorded and shared my wife's reaction when I told her the overall cost of armor. I didn't have the heart to tell her about weapons, accessories, boots, or garb... Thanks everyone.
