Hey All!

Shadow Realms' store of boffer weapons is not great right now, unfortunately. It's at the point where there sometimes aren't enough claw boffers for all NPCs, or else weapons aren't available to be rented to new players. I think it's high time for a boffer drive day.

Here's what I'm proposing:

We arrive with materials and go to town making weapons. I will be there as a Weapon Safety Marshall to pass or fail boffers and also to supervise construction. We'll make weapons for a few hours, and then, for everyone who produces at least one safety-approved boffer weapon will be eligible to enter a sparring contest. The top contenders will receive fantastic prizes furnished by me. Prizes are yet to be finalized, but might include admission to your next Shadow Realms event being paid for, or else discounts on admission to private LARP events I put on through my own company.

Everyone who attends and creates boffers will receive Grab Bags equal to the product they produce, not time put in. Also, you must restrict your boffer creations to the weapons that Plot needs. I will be getting that list from them soon.

Just so you're aware, I have already received the support of the Plot Team to run this boffer weapon drive as proposed above. The major thing that I lack here is a place to host the boffer drive day. While I cannot promise Grab Bags for offering to host, I can promise a fantastic time and an offer to help clean up at the end of the event.

What do you think, folks?

If I can reach the location, I will definitely come out! I like making boffers, and it would be a good chance to OOG hang out

I am also up for joining in! I have a decent bit of pvc pipe that I can pitch in, as well as open cell foam. I'll see exactly what stock I have and can possibly share if someone is in need.

Oh heck yes! I'm completely down for this, I hope it lands on a day I have/can get off work. I love making boffers.

I'm in!
I can also offer my place in Hamilton if we need it, but it's a small apartment, so somewhere bigger/more central is a better idea. But as a last resort, it's available.

If it's nice out, we could do it at a park? Make a picnic out of it?

Provided I'm free I'm totally down for this. I've got a fair amount of boffer supplies hanging around including pipe, foam, and many colours of tape.

The tournament would definitely happen in a park, but the boffer construction part couldn't, because the wind would blow all of the waste from the projects everywhere.

Not if we have garbage bags with us, I wouldn't think.

No matter how clean you try to be with these projects, they're still a mass of clutter, and it only takes a second for the wind to take garbage with it. It's a fact of boffer-making.
