Odyssey LRP [Recruiting Post]

Postby Tom_Duggan » Thu Feb 25, 2010 12:58 pm

GROUP: The Sons of Marduk

ALLEGIANCE: Persia

HOMELAND: Babylonia, in The Core Kingdoms of Persia

KING: Shah Cyrus, Child of the Sun, Beacon of Marduk, Shah-an-Shah of all Persia

CONCEPT: A Persian king, the chosen of Marduk, has come to the Annual with his family, harem, viziers, advisor's, servants and his immortals champions to seek greater glory in the eyes of both the Gods and the Shah-an-Shah.

We are primarily a royal persian court dedicated to following the traditions of the Yazata Marduk. Madruk is the Lord of cities, civilization, war and strife. Marduk is an enthusiastic yazata - he loves to fight, brawl, drink and live large and he expects the same of his heroes.

We aim to be the embodiment of Persian civilisation, with a heavy focus on quests, arena combat and the worship of Marduk.

Shah Cyrus, now Shah-an-Shah Cyrus the Golden, has been declared by the Council of Shahs and the True Gods to be the King of Kings of Persia !

CHARACTER ROLES: Any character which you think might fit into a mythic court !

AVAILABILITY: Plenty of places and roles still available in the group ! Please get in touch for more details.

ODYSSEY 2013 PERSIAN UPDATE

Woe to the Thousand Nations, for Bahadur, King of Kings, is fallen and Persia teeters on the brink of civil conflict.

Bahadur was succeeded as Shah-an-Shah by Cyrus of Babylon [OC: Me :-) ] long believed to have been the candidate Darius intended for the role. However, his first Annual was not to be without incident either.

Shah-an-Shah Cyrus the Golden declares that the ways of the Old Gods are the only acceptable ways of Persian worship, and orders the temples and holy places of Zoroaster cast down and destroyed. Dark rumour whispers that Shah Hadib of the Azad was murdered in cold blood – under a flag of truce and a promise of safe-conduct – for daring to question this religious extremism. Now the Satrapies of the far north and east where Zoroastrianism was strongest arm for war and fewer than half the Shahs answer Cyrus’ demand to attend and offer fealty.

What is to become of the Thousand Nations? Can Shah-an-Shah Cyrus exert his will over gods and men as his predecessors Darius and Xerxes did?

We are still recruiting for the 2013 season ! Please get in touch if you're interested in joining up.

EDIT: UPDATE: 2013 events and dates are

- The Balance of the World - 14-Jun-13
- The Touch of Death - 9-Aug-13

Don't forget, if you are a new player you can get a new player discount. The only restriction is that this discount is only available for bookings made before the event begins. The new player discount is not available for anyone paying on the gate at an event. My unique recruitment code is valid for use by anyone who is booking for their first Odyssey event. It can be used by players who are new to Profound Decisions or by players who have only played Maelstrom previously.

My unique recruitment code is 1585.4113

If your interested please let me know and join our facebook group !

As an update:

The Sons of Marduk have been declared the top starting warband for Persia, which itself is the largest stating nation for the event !

The game is this weekend, but it's still not too late to come along and get involved - you can even simply turn up and pay on the gate if you like :-)

Please consider it, as I think it's going to be an awesome event !

As predicted, it WAS an awesome event, some photos that give you a real feel for the event and the atmosphere of the arena combat can be seen here:

Tom, I'm tempted by August event. Can't manage the June dates unfortunately.

Only barrier I can see is getting a reasonable costume together. I don't have a great deal of kit.

Would be great to see some more of the Cumbrian people going! Come on folks!

Hi Ryan,

It would be great to have you along if you could make it. I know a couple of the other LRP'ers are thinking about it.

I know your good at kit making so I thought you might be interested in the following links about making Persian style LRP kit (esp. leather-scale cultural armour for immortals) so you can get a costume together:

http://tutorials.abbott.me.uk/odyssey/persia

http://tutorials.abbott.me.uk/home/leather-scale-armour

The group colours are purple, gold, black and red.

Tom, do you have a PDF of the rules? They have been taken down from the site, I guess due to some revisions, but I'd still like to have a broad idea of what to expect.

Also, it would be good to have a chat about characters at some point.

I have to say after reading the info you sent me, this game looks very fun indeed.

I'd highly recommend people to have a look.

In essence it looks like the events are meetings where different cultures compete for the right to control lands and their resources. Lots of challenges and intrigue. Looks like it would be a lot of fun.

I would love to go too, unfortunately I am unemployed at the moment so we really can't afford to go. :(

But I am going to another event later in the year :)

Oh, so sorry to hear you are looking for work. Horrible feeling. I'll keep my fingers crossed for you.

And maybe things will turn around soon and you and Andrew could come too. It would be great to go with some familiar faces.

I'm still interested in this. Worried about having a decent costume, though. and a tent!

I'm thinking of making a tent, could be a interesting project.

Anyways, just promise me you guys will still be Persians by August ;)

Oh, and anyone else considering it? Go on, go on, go on....

Not me, sorry. I think Steve H is probably your best bet for leather working advice.

No need to worry about in-character tents, we have several group tents being used to build our Odyssey encampment.

Only a week and a half till the event :D :D :D

It will have to be the August one for me as I'm off to a wedding in a few days.

I hope it goes great, though! Slaughter those Romans!

Oh, if I had an IC tent could I use it? Just my plans are getting a bit advanced so might just continue.

Also, Andrew and Liz, I hope you can make it too!

You certainly could - more IC tents are always useful !

Right, seems ive talked myself in going to the third session in August with some freinds from wales.(this means i cant really tag along to their kit making sessions and what not).
Basically i need help from someone with experience of the event.
What do i need? (the entire list please)
Where can i locally source cloth and other essentials for making the kit.

Most importantly:
Where can i buy a cheap yet somewhat good quality safe thrusting spear?

A Pre-Emptive thankyou for your help!

Liz is a good person to ask about buying material for costume locally, as she has been doing a fair bit of it recently for various LRP events.

I.e. the basics needed for a weekend in a field.
