OK I know this is a bit of an unusual request. After having gone to Gen Con with my children and having a wonderful time there, two of my girls wanted to dress up during the convention as the Gloranthan PCs. They got to play the quick star rules at Gen Con as Vasana and Yanionth. It went over really well for them and the People at Chaosium were great and made it a neat experience for them. It was a fun experience for me as well! Greg Stafford was a old family friend that had given me a copy of RuneQuest back in the 1978 - 79 timeframe. It's was fun for me to explain how role-playing got started in our family. I can honestly say my kids had more fun at Gen Con than Disney World! I asked my daughter why and she said: "Because I get to be myself and imagine fun things, and nobody mocks me or bullies me for having an imagination!" So, naturally, Gen Con will become a tradition for us. Now, on to my main question...my youngest daughter really wants a Gloranthan themed birthday party. I'm talking she said she wanted Glorathan food, coins, swords (foam of course) a dungeon adventure like the larp dungeons at Gen Con and more. The coins I can 3-D print for her. The rest of the stuff I'm not quite sure if I'm thinking of getting some Renaissance actors or groups you can hire for parties and giving them enough information to make it more Glorathan. I have until May to pull this off, but any ideas would be very helpful as I've never done anything like this before. She is eager to have her entire grade attend, and I'd love to make her birthday party a huge success for all to remember forever. The more ideas the better.
