This is simply a copy of the letter I've been trying to send and have sent to news stations. Anyone who holds a practice independently in the area, I encourage to join up as a Fighter's Guild chapter, the benefits and the resources would be helpful to all! I will contact all relevant parties!
To whomever it concerns:
I am writing to you on behalf of the Larp Alliance and the Fighter's Guild [of the Larp Alliance]. Last Friday, the Universal film "Role Models" premiered in national theaters, and it highlighted a fictious LARP called LAIRE. LARP is an acronym for Live Action RolePlay.
The pertinence of the Larp Alliance in this letter is the fact that Adrianne Grady of the LARP Alliance was hired onto the movie as technical advisor for the LAIRE portions of the movie and the Larp Alliance is credited at the end of the film under the "Thanks to" portion. Adrianne can be found every Thursday at a neighborhood park in Rancho Cucamonga, CA hosting a fighter practice. We would like you to run a story on LARP Alliance and the Fighter's Guild practices to inform the public and anyone who'd be interested in this kind of hobby that we are a viable resource for them to get involved through. The Fighter's Guild is currently setting up five locations in Socal, two of which are set, Anaheim and Rancho Cucamonga, and we are trying to officially establish Canoga Park, Alhambra and Lake Elsinore. The Guild website is under construction, but should be up by the end of the week. I'll establish pertinent links at the closing of this letter.
We also use a networking site like MySpace.com called Larpspace.com. This is the community hub for Larpers around the country. As the LARP Alliance, we do everything that we can to help promote and support the LARP community in the country, we are just a few days away from establishing a non-profit status as an educational group, since we also collaborate in workshops, and classes, and also providing tools necessary to attend or run LARPs.
Thank you for your time and consideration. Just to keep things clear, I will be sending this letter to other major news stations in the Los Angeles, Inland Empire, and Orange County areas. I hope you will grant us a chance for a proper news story to highlight this immersive and creative hobby!

The Fighter's Guild would like to send its support for the NPC effort to ApocaLARP from Friday Evening into Sunday Morning. The actual game will be all day Saturday, but set up will be Friday night and tear down Sunday morning.
Anyone who wishes to come NPC is recommended to join the Larp Bus on Friday night because the actual game site has VERY limited parking (8 vehicle spaces). Rick McCoy will be driving the NPCs to the game Friday evening, dropping them off, and picking them up Sunday morning.
This game is done in a near future setting, requiring no period garb, but I do suggest you bring anything survivalist (camo, drab outdoor clothing, zombie stuff). This is a big time zombie game.
Bring camping supplies (tent, sleeping bag, what not), and maybe a camp stove if you've got one, we're still in fire season.
We will be helping with some amenities if you're joining us on the bus!
If you wish to sign up for staff (NPC), it's a $5 prepay before 10/8 here:

Otherwise, you can cough over $10 on game day.

Realms Of Conflict will be holding their game this weekend from the 12th to the 14th. They will have an influx of about 70 players and not enough NPCs to back the numbers. The Fighter's Guild is making a call-to-arms for all NPCs who wish to rally this thing and make it work. THIS IS A LAST MINUTE ALERT!!! There was no forewarning about this, I just found this out two hours ago.
The influx is the result of NeroWest's hiatus and closing for this season. A lot of those players will be jumping into RoC. My participation is yet to be determined, I have a lot on my plate this weekend, but who thinks they can rally up numbers Northward?

The Fighter's Guild is proud to announce that all 20 seats for two vehicles have been filled for this road trip to Realms Of Conflict.
I want to thank everyone for their consideration and especially everyone who jumped on board to make this trip happen.
The purpose of this effort is to port SoCal players to one of NorCal's premiere combat larps, Realms of Conflict (originally Adventures Unlimited). Although the effort is largely an NPC supplement, SoCalers are also given the option of PCing for the game if they choose to.
An effort like this is most exciting, and I would like it to serve as an example and a reminder to any other LARPs in California the kind of manpower and resources the Fighter's Guild could provide to pretty much any game you run. If you would like to see more numbers at your combat LARPs, please contact the Fighter's Guild and we can work out an arrangement to help resource and promote your game.
Also, players looking for some fighting action and combat LARP, this is a good resource to get your feet wet and start develop the skills and acquiring the tools necessary to jump right in!

A return to Realms of Conflict!!
We'll be bussing it up together under the banner of the Fighter's Guild and the Larp Alliance.
Realms of Conflict is a Northern California Combat LARP that has been instrumental in the formation of many SoCal LARPS. It's fast-paced and intense with a high player-character mortality risk.
Our goal is to get up there with a troop of NPCs to supplement their numbers and bring a good game to the players.
We have a 15 passenger Van to fill up, and if we're over capacity, we can add 1 or 2 additional vehicles to the bunch.
If there are any medical issues that we need to be concerned about (i.e., diabetes, severe allergies, epilepsy, HIV, etc.), please understand that this a highly active and close quarters game, and if you have anything that may be contagious to others, or you have a problem with coming in contact with any particular food or matter, PLEASE, let me, Rick or Adrianne know so that we may better prepare the trip and look out for everyone's safety and to address these concerns.
Contributions toward gas would be appreciated, but are not necessarily required. We need to cover a gas cost of about $160.
ALSO, on a more personal contribution, we're in fact buying Rick's time off work. Without this personal contribution, Rick would not be able to come up North at all with us, and without him, we would also be losing Adrianne and the 15 passenger van, and loads of weapons, costuming, props and armor. The personal contribution would be a total of $300 split in any number of ways depending on who wishes to contribute, for example, if four of us were to pony up a contribution, we would each be paying $75 toward that total. Please bare in mind that this contribution is in addition to the gas cost as a separate effort. We ask those only those who can really put forth and who really would like to see Rick and Adrianne participate, as they bring a lot of life, love and comeraderie to the game.
You can message me directly or contact Rick or Adrianne for more information. Thank you!
