I find Empire kind of weird, to be honest.

I'm pretty sure I'm having fun - although probably due to having hoovered up an exciting Imperial position (General of the Red Wind Corsairs). But it's the first LARP in which I've had fun without actually really having a _character_. Yasmina is blatantly just me in a silly dress; if I concentrate I can fetch very slightly divergent thought processes, but we share a lot more of our basic circuitry than most characters I've had fun with in the past.

I think part of that is because I'm so involved in fairly high-powered politics in the game - I keep having to activate all of my problem-solving and organisational abilities, which naturally makes me act a lot more like me than like someone else.

I also feel kind of bad that I've ended up with a lot of my out-of-nation contacts being people I know OC - but I know so many people OC from Maelstrom that I guess it would be difficult for anything else to happen at this stage...

Had some excellent 'remind people orcs are a speaking part' moments monstering the second battle though - particularly the one-on-one in the woods with some guy, where he went to execute me and I told him his people would find no mercy either, and he said "this is my mercy" before smashing my head in :-). Honourable mention to the orc who came up to me with a spear and asked "Can you use this?" after they'd lost an arm; I said "yes I can," we swapped weapons, and I immediately went down to an arrow, with the sorrowful follow-up of "maybe not, then".

Also, bizarre purple digging creatures with a specific hunting pattern, ++ would be hunted through the woods by again...

I would try to go through highlights as I know I always love to be mentioned in them but I am paranoid that someone will go 'but she didn't mention me! she must have not noticed / secretly think I'm rubbish' when it's just that I am totally exhausted and my brain is full!
