There's loads of them! Felt like around fifteen. I guess they might not all stay, but still, it feels like a nice way to start the year. Some of them even did a bit of monstering, and did a pretty good job of it, too (drunken soldiers for the win). We only seem to have one guy who's decided "I'm going to play a really dodgy bastard" which is nice, too.
I'm thinking of getting a "story blog" kind of affair going on aberddu.co.uk, as a place for players to write stories about last night/the last plot arc they were involved in/anything that amused them at larp. It wouldn't be IC, as such, but would be written from whatever perspective each player decides, as a way of permanently preserving the inevitable stories that arise from each session. I'd welcome opinions and feedback on that.
