Welcome new players to Mead Legends!

If you are new to LARPing you might have many questions about how this works. On this page we hope to address the most frequently asked of these questions. If you still have questions after that please feel free to email registration@meadsa.co.za

How do I become a member?

We don't have a membership structure in place and there is no membership fee. If you want to join the LARPing community, you simply need to register and show up for events.

It is also a good idea to join the Facebook group for up to date event information.

How do weekend events work?

Weekend events run from a Friday evening until Sunday afternoon. The venues will usually have dorms with bunkbeds that you can sleep in. You usually have to provide your own bedding

Catering depends on the venue, but there is usually the option to cater for yourself or take the catering offered by the venue.

For a weekend event, you can either sign up to be a monster for the whole event (what we call a perma-monster) or you can sign up as a player.

Perma-monsters get to play monsters and NPCs (Non Player Characters) for the whole event and will earn 800 Goblin Points (reward points) and 3 build points (for a character of your choice)

Players will be playing their characters for most of the event, but will also have to play some monsters for a few hours over the course of the weekend.

What do I need to bring to an event?

As a perma-monster you need to bring the following:

  • Bedding
  • Food if you are taking self-catering
  • Sunscreen
  • Bug Repellent
  • Confortable clothes
  • Warm clothes if it gets cold
  • A white headband (Available for purchase at the event for R10)
