It can take a lot of people to run a LRP event. We often end up with a core team of about 10, monster crew of 20-30 and 30-55 players, and we do cap our monster numbers. We’re beginning to look at monster roles that don’t involve people being on site.…

Story
Introduction
I spend most of my free time involved in LRP in one way or another. I part own and run Mandala Studios in Coventry and have been running games through them for 5 or 6 years. I also crew Empire LRP. I have catered a variety of events and banquets and the events I run are a mix of genres (SciFi, Fantasy and stupid - next year I'm running a dinosaur event).
