THE WARRIOR'S PATH

Skills, and abilities for Warriors in LARP Adventures

This category is melee focused. Choose to follow this path if you are a warrior at heart. Melee and weapons are the focus and you will natively improve by;

  • Taking part in battles

  • Seeking out Masters in game

  • Practicing with your fellows
     

If you want to be a greater warrior, you simply need to practice to improve. This is one of the few paths where "out of game" practice can strengthen your character, and learn new skills as you progress at monthly events!

Warrior Battle Advantages

  • Shield Proficiency - Warriors can use any type and size shield

  • Weapon Proficiency - Warriors can learn any weapon without restriction from daggers to the largest polearms


Limitations and Restrictions

  • It may be difficult or impossible to use Arcanum or Healing Skills in full armor

  • Clandestine Skills may fail or be impossible fully armed and armored
