It’s 151 days til College of Wizardry (Cowlarp), and I’m already excited like a kid at Christmas. Over the next 5 months I’ll be bringing you my updates as I prepare for my first ever Larp event.
For those that don’t know Larp stands for Live Action Role Play. This has been on my bucket list for a while now, but with there being nothing local to me I was waiting til something just right came up.
Then last year I saw an advert on Facebook for Cowlarp (College of Wizardry Live Action Role Play). I was so excited about it but couldn’t find anyone to go with, so let my dreams of being a wizard go to the back of my head for a while. Then a few months ago I saw the add again. This time for March 2017. I shared the post on Facebook with no interest again, so thought Screw it! I’m going! Wizards and Larping are not David’s cuppa tea so I bought my ticket for one. I wasn’t missing out just because I had no one to go with.
A bit more on Cowlarp.
College of Wizardry is a four-day Wizard School larp event, where you can act out your dreams of being a student witch or wizard at a beautiful fairytale castle in Poland. Surrounded by around 135 like-minded people, at College of Wizardry you will:
Attend classes as a witch or wizard and learn the magical arts
Be selected to represent one of the five ancient Houses of Czocha Castle
Explore the castle and meet the magical creatures that roam the grounds
Make new friends and form long lasting bonds with like-minded people
Get into discussions, stir up shenanigans, and play games
Perhaps even a little (in-character) romance?
Spend 3 nights at a castle in Poland and have a once-in-a-lifetime adventure
Whilst I have to patiently wait to attend I can start preparing what I need.
- Wand (for spells)
- A ball gown for the ball
- Ink/Pens etc
- Potion Bottles
- Spell ingredients
Can you think of anything else I may need to take to College of Wizardry?
The event I’m attending is now sold out, but there are new dates released over at www.cowlarp.com
