Randomir Atreus of the Emerald Hills
”You are a @#!*% , and must therefore die!”
Randomir first learned about LARP fighting on the web in 2003. Dagorhir was the system he read about, and he thought it sounded awesome, but there were no groups in texas at that time. He tried to start a chapter up with a few friends, but since there were no legal adults, and not enough interested parties involved to sign the charters, the issue was dropped, and they resorted to occasional backyard battles with highly illegal weapons. There were hockey stick scythes, and in particular, an 8 foot long "javelin" which had only a foot of padding towards the end, and only one layer of camp pad on the tip, covered in a mass of duct tape. The greatsword he initially used was made from a closet rod, and wrapped in two camping pads, completely wrapped in duct tape; the thing weighed about 12 pounds, and was terrifying, but too heavy to use effectively, and eventually snapped when someone dodged a blow, and it hit the ground. Luckily no one was hurt, and good times were had by all.
Randomir learned about Amtgard from a news story that covered a Dagorhir event; the story mentioned that there were several other foam sword games, and that Amtgard was played in Texas. The web informed him that there were two groups meeting in a nearby park, so he emailed the Mourningwood Glen contact, and Einon, whose address was listed as the contact for Cuiviëdôr Amarth. There was a rude sounding reply from Mourningwood's contact, but Einon courteously thanked him for his interest, told him that CA was always looking for new members, and gave the meeting times. So in the summer of 2004, with Kakumei in tow, he strode onto the field of foam warfare.
