The Lions Command Structure are here to help all our players both in and out of character to enjoy the world of Curious Pastimes (CP). Out Of Character (OOC), here are some of the things Lions Command are responsible for:
- Getting the faction kit (tents, gate, banner walls, tankards, etc) to and from the events.
- Setting up and taking down the Lions camp.
- Liaising with the CP Game Team (refs, monsters, world plot) and CP Event Team (OOC logistics, safety and campsite liaisons).
- Refereeing the game and answering player questions in the Lions camp (ably assisted by our excellent Lions Faction Refs).
- Administering faction funds.
- Arranging banquet and faction events.
- Herding cats.
- Ensuring the Lions camp and player experience is as excellent as possible!
In Character (IC), Lions Command are the leaders of the land of Albion and the commanders of that nation's armies and can help with any important issues. The current Lions Command set up is as follows:
Matthew Bradford 'Milkybar'
Matt's been playing this game for well over ten years and even met his beautiful wife in the tavern at an event. He considers having a famous song written about one of his characters his greatest LARP achievement. Good for unrealistic ideas and being a thoroughly lovely chap.
Lord Quentyn is a powerful noble exiled from his home in Albion.
Andy Chatwin 'Bleeder'
Drew has been a member of the Lions for so many years, it’s hard to remember a time when he wasn't there organising us in some way. He personally built half the camp, including the array of thrones! Good for logistics, building stuff from anything and being awesome.
Knight Commander Leofric is the war leader of the Lions, often commanding them and their allies in battle.
The Command Team couldn’t run the faction without help and support and for that we have an excellent crew of “faction refs” who assist by:
- Running faction monster slots.
- Contributing to plot ideas.
- Refereeing the game and answering player questions in the Lions camp.
- Generally pitching in whenever Faction Command need help.
Our current Faction Referees are:
