A few months ago we took a private lesson with Jacob at Guard Up who was very knowledgeable in fighting with many types of weapons of that era. After a one hour class Alexander was armed with new knowledge with how to make the weapon fighting as realistic as possible for Legacy of Svarog.
Yesterday we had the pleasure of returning to Guard Up! in Burlington, MA to show them what their Medieval sword fighting lesson has done for Legacy of Svarog. While the school was closed for upgrades we brought the Arena build we are bringing to Boston FIG this weekend and they were the first to give it a try. Needless to say they were quite happy with the realism that most games ignore in their combat.
While there we also purchased a Noble Sword by Epic Armory. A latex and foam LARP sword, hand made in Denmark. The sword will be given away as a prize at Boston FIG to the player who completes our demo in the fastest time.
Guard Up! was also very generous to give us 40 passes for a free week of sword fighting classes as well as some buddy night passes for a player a friend to give away to players who complete the demo or are just all around awesome at Boston FIG.
Hope to see you there!
