Epic Empires 2015 – Moritz Jendral

The first part of Moritz Jendral’s photos from last year’s Epic Empires is online. He is an awesome photographer and the characters at Epic Empires are gorgeous.

You can look at them here, in his Portfolio.

The Book of the Guard

I made another book, this time for the guards of the main gate. The elven camp on the Epic Empire Larp has always had a book of the guard, with a guard shift plan, pictures of all the camp’s inhabitants and notes on events at the gate. The first one is full now, after several years of use and so I made a replacement.

Wôn Iseul-Sung

There was this article about broken crown, a Larp I attended to. It has some really great pictures taken by Moritz Jendral, an there is even one of my character, Wôn Iseul-Sung.

I really like how it does not only represent Wôn really well, but also Makrabar culture in itself.

Calligraphy Practice

There is this beautiful way to write English in a writing system suitable for an East Asian character. It’s called square word Calligraphy.

I practiced a bit before the larp, but writing this is actually easier than it looks, so I was able to get into it very quickly.

During the larp I still used a reference and I need quite some time to write a sentence. But it’s so much fun. I definitely want to use it more often

Broken Crown IV was my most spontaneous Larp so far. I decided to attend about two weeks before the Larp and made a new Character in that period of Time. It worked out better than I’d hoped. And I need to wear coloured contact lenses more often.

The character’s costume is mostly inspired by Joseon hanbok with a few parts I borrowed from my Chinese-inspired character  and some general improvised stuff.

Thanks to Lena for taking the photo.
