Project: Onsallas Outpost Laws Calligraphy

Since coordinating the editing of the upcoming Guest post by a super-awesome incognito guest blogger has proved harder than originally anticipated, I figured I would share a quick project I’m working on for Last Hope Larp. It was decided fairly recently that Pack Longfang would implement a set of laws for Onsallas Outpost and Longfang Territory.

They were discussed with a small committee of Pack Members, then I wrote a draft. From there they were subjected to a discussion by the full Pack (and a few changes were made, and the relationships between the various clauses were tested, in between a few jokes). By this point I already have a mental vision for how to display them. In accordance, I’m the one who ended up spending three and a half hours hand writing the entire thing in Chancery Hand calligraphy.

The fact that it’s my first calligraphy project does show, but on the whole, I think the imperfections add to the job suiting itself to being on Longfang territory. The final mounting and finishing will accomplish the rest of the look (it’s going to be pretty rustic looking when it’s finished, but be more readable than posting it on leather or fabric, and be a longer lasting piece all told). I’ll post about it again once the project is finished (I plan to debut the prop at the May 3 day event that is upcoming.
