Everybody is different and like different things, I know we all LARP but what else are the Wolves phys reps' interested in?

Me? I play WoW, write books, practice martial arts (one day I might even get them right), shoot the French (otherwise known as Napoleonic Reinactment as a 2nd battalion 95th Rifleman) and generally act as a terrible burden to my long suffering other half, Yvonne.

What do you guys do for giggles and to make your lives interesting?


(And yes, work -is- slow today...)

As regards things i love away from Larp i am just a big kid at heart and love my Scalextric and Nintendo Wii. I am also studying for a HNC in Mechanical Engineering as an intro to a distance degree in Mech.Eng. I read a manga novella series called Priest. I play poker. I like going to the gym (not that you can tell!). I also attempt to play bass guitar and saxophone when i get time away from the thing that occupies most of my free time, a screaming toddler called Grace. Rather boringly i am a parents liaison at her nursery and am involved with the local neighbourhood watch. I love to watch rugby and used to play. I love to cook and entertain mostly for my long suffering wife, Caroline.

Other than L.A.R.P. Well lets see. I read a lot of Science Fiction , Science Fantasy and Fantasy books. Some times I would sit and just paint model figures (mostly for table top games). I play most table RPGs. The ones I like are Cyber Punk, all versions of Judge Dredd and anything to do with Star Trek. But the RPG I like the most is Point Blank. If I am not doing any of these I am usually on the Legend of the Green Dragon Addiction web site. I have a collection of DVDs (mostly action, SF, F and manga) which I will hope to get round to seeing at some stage. I am reading the Guardians of the Flame series by Joel Rosenberg. Have read books1-4 and have book 5. But have found out that there are 10 books in the series. I also like to walk, yes I know that as a postman I should be sick of that, but I think when I am just walking doing nothing. I won’t go out after 20:00 hrs. I don’t drink nor do I smoke but that still does not mean I have money. The last thing I really like to set the alarm clock really early get up have some food then got back to bed.

I like going out socialising with my mates whenever possible and like music and movies....If im not doing any of the above im on the internet socialising.

Typical student - I love going out and drinking stupid amounts and falling over, lying around on my arse watching tv shows when I should be studying.
Doing an Honours degree in Biblical and Theological Studies at Trinity College in Dublin, in my 3rd year, trying to figure out what to do my dissertation on next year and how to get more experience to get into the masters I want. Despite this degree I am not religious at all really!
Love to read, will tear through most books - fantasy, crime, military history, politics, religious stuff
Play bass in an alternative//grunge band that's on a bit of a hiatus due to the 3 of us all of studying/working in different areas of the UK and Ireland. check us out if you like www.myspace.com/infidelityrocks
Following from that I love music, will listen to most things, but my big loves are punk, grunge, stoner rock...also love my metal, bit of rap, jazz, blues, reggae, dub, pretty much anything like I said!
Do a bit of shooting at my college rifle club and also some pistol shooting at home.
Love computer games as well, will play pretty much anything you set infront of me, PC or console.

Grimlock,

If you love Bernard Cornwell might I recommend Simon Scarrow, he's a roman lecturer but his writing style is good and in a similar vein. Also best wishes on your impending nupitals (sp?) and trip to ... erm yeah.

Let me think... outside of LARP, and apart from working for the Government (and when I have time) I write (sorry, another budding author here!) I'm a bit of a cinema buff and enjoy most things, from lunacy like 'Zombieland' and 'Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou' through silly blockbusters like 'Transformers' to top notch stuff like 'Hurt Locker' and 'The Interpreter'. However I can't stand rom-coms and their ilk, ergo I've never seen a film starring Jennifer Aniston. I don't watch much TV, if I do I mostly catch the comedy stuff like Mock the Week and Shooting Stars (#'Lovin' you, is easy 'cause your boobs are new'#). I like motorsport, F1 (even though there are cheats and it can be a bit borin') and the tin-tops like BTCC, Ginetta Juniors, Ginetta G-50s, Renault Clio Cup, and I go to Croft, nr Darlo, or Oulton Park (if I can) to watch them swap paint and knock off each other's door mirrors. Football and Cricket don't really rock my boat, I go for the US sports, Gridiron, baseball, basketball and ice hockey. Even some of the US oval racing's quite interesting. I like horse-sports such as eventing and showjumping and I've been known to get on a horse and ride about a bit, so much so that I even have a Horse Owners' Certificate somewhere and I did a Prelim dressage once and came sixth out of a field of 12. I've finally got my hands on a Hyundai Coupe (wot I've wanted for several years) and I do like driving fast cars, once being fortunate enough to blast around a track in a Porsche 996, a Ferrari 355, a Jaguar XK8R, a Lotus Exige and a Noble M-12. I quite an accomplished cook, stir-frys, curries or Italian usually, but I also like to griddle a good piece of rump steak or venison haunch. Monday nights are usually my table-top RP nights, D&D v3 at the mo'. I'm a Pisces, I have a Virgo girlfriend (opposites definitely attract!!!), and two ginger kittens (well cats really), Ozymandias and Boris, although Boris currently has a broken foot and is feeling very sorry for himself. Fortunately he is very well insured. I'm also going to have to learn to garden as ours is getting out of control.

So I'm pretty boring really... :lol:

That.Sounds.So.Awesome!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I want to do it too!!!!! :D

Um what can i say, well apart from LARP'in i'm a 3rd year acting student, in my last year now. Looking to get into the acting profession doing Shakespeare and Musical Theatre once ive finished which should be fun :) I work as a lifeguard for my uni pool and have taken to swimming a good few miles per week as im on one of those fitness drives at the moment. Losing weight already so getting gd results early on :D

On a relaxation front im a big DVD whore lol. I love watching television series like House, My Name is Earl, Scrubs, Futurama and Sci-Fi series like Stargate (I have all ten seasons of SG1 and all five seasons of Atlantis), X-Files and Farscape. Add to that im a HUGE trekkie or trekker which ever you think is more appropriate lol. I'd have to say that Deep Space Nine is my all time fave Star Trek! Jadzia Dax...hubba hubba hubba :D

I'm a massive Anime fan and have an extensive collection. My faves are Bleach, Ghost in the Shell, Tenchi Muyo, Trigun, R.O.D (Read or Die), Outlaw Star and dare i say i have all four seasons of Digimon (copies but still entertaining lol). As well as my DVD love affair (lmao) im also a keen reader. I like my sci-fi books, especially Games Workshops books from the Black Library. Some of my favourites are the Gaunts Ghost Series of books, the Ultramarines books, The Eisenhorn Series and the Gotrek and Felix series.

I also love my fantasy books, obviously Lord of the Rings is one of them as well as The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss (You must read this book! I recommend it highly!). I also read the Halo books that accompany the Games and i have a real love of Psychological Thrillers, mainly by Jonathon Kellerman (again definately a great read if you like these sorta novells). Other authors im a fan of are Tom Clancy, Ian Rankin, Terry Brooks, J.K.Rowling and the man himself Shakespeare :D (A playwright yes but still an author lol) And i like the Narnia books too :D

I'm a singer (as most of you know) and like to do barbershop (i have a group at uni at the moment but we've not met up yet lol). As well as this i'm a grade five pianist and claranetist (as well as Bass Clarinetist) and grade five theory. I try to do a little composing in my spare time (which is usually not often lol) but unfortunately my major problem is that i don't get it down on sheet form and im rubbish at lyrics :( I want to write songs for the faction but i just can't do it :(

And to add to all of this (lol) im love my consol games. I have a PS2 and a PS3 and love such games as Marvell Ultimate Alliance 2, Little Big Planet, The Final Fantasy Films (7,8,9,10 and 12) and Kingdom Hearts 1 and 2 (i want more of this awesome serires) :D

Well i think ive given you everything i can think of. Oh yeh i like to go on long walks and have done some rock climbing too (only one session but my mates going to take me out again soon!)...well thats it :P

Richie, if you like I can let you know when the next 2nd 95th event is and you can come and have a look if you like. The people are great and the atmosphere relaxed, not to mention the thrill of firing one of the rifles!

Although I'd steer clear of both the 1st and third 95th ...
