How was my weekend?
The Abridged version with pieces missing:
It was at that moment that I vowed to have the best weekend ever and just get down and outright enjoy myself.
And so I did.
There were soooooo many people at Clinton and merchants.
There were so many merchants that I didn’t get a chance to watch the war! (yes I’m moronic that way).
I kept running into people I know at the event, such as Clan Stewart along with…..get this, Keith and Katherine…..at an event…..in garb. That in itself was worth the trip. Then there was Thrasher, and Micheal (although no one I know knows who he is). There was also Amanda, now, this is not the Amanda who is with John, this is little Amanda who I knew long ago when I first joined the Kelowna LARP. She was friends with Sarah for a while. Anyway, I know who I’m talking about and that’s what really matters. Then there was the spice merchant Lord Francesco and his lady. In the end….it was more a matter of who wasn’t there.
The first night I lost my pinky ring. Given it’s nature I decided it was meant to be and left it at that.
Then there were many encampments visited and songs sung.
Afterward I wound up in the tavern where first some guy attempted to steal my tankard but failed miserably, therefore I was granted the gift of beer as I commanded him to fetch me a beer as eye for an eye kind of sacrifice.I ended my night by getting frustrated with some guy who was a clear twinkie gamer talking about his wondrous Vampire who became Caitiff….I’m not going to lie…..I was pretty drunk and I think I called him a power gamer.
But my favourite one-liner from that night was me saying, “Of all the taverns in all the world, I had to meet you, here”
That day I purchased a puzzle block that is much like a three dimensional star of David (like the stuff my Grandfather used to make in his spare time), Dragon’s Blood, and leather bracers (custom made)
The next day I woke up still inebriated, but in decent shape. I hung out in the encampment for most of the day and then picked up my Runes (25 all told, including the unknowable rune)
The evening had me visiting more encampments with more singing and impressing people with my uncanny ability to set myself on fire (no I did not catch on fire luckily, I only retold tales of my fiery past)
My favourite one-liner for that evening was when I said, “Milady, I’m so bitter I make Vermouth look like a fine port”

Having given some highlights, I will endeavour to tell more tales of my adventures in Clinton throughout the week
