Your First Time Out
On your first day, you'll be greeted warmly by our members and introduced to the wonderful world of Dagorhir. You won't need to bring anything but yourself; we have extra weapons, and you won't be required to have garb or a persona.

Before you begin fighting, we'll need you (or a parent/guardian, if you're under 18) to sign a release form. You can print one and fill it out ahead of time, fill one out online, or you can pick one up when you get here, but you (or your parent/guardian) must sign it in the presence of an official from Dragonspire. If your parent can't make it to your first practice or event, you may have it notarized. You can find a Notary Public at the local library or school, and most banks will notarize something for free if you have an account with them You can print off a waiver here or fill one out online here.

Once your release form is on file, you can begin. We'll teach you the basic rules and show you the basics of fighting with the Dagorhir equivalent of a shortsword. When you've finished the training, we'll send you out onto the field to experience Dagorhir to the fullest.

Once you have decided to be a regular participant you will need to get your own gear together. We'll give you help if you need it, just ask. By about your fourth parctice you should have your own garb and weapon. At official events here and in other realms garb is required in order to participate.

All participants are expected to have their own equipment, and wear garb while on the field. If you do not have garb, even if you are a vet and just did not bring garb, you will be limited to single blue sword for the day's combats.
