Wandering Ronin is a Live Action Role Play (LARP) group created in 2012. Various players from a number of different LARPs and fighting groups came together to form a new rulebook that is based upon the most common Boffer-combat rules. This game is based more upon the role playing and achievement aspects of LARPs than the political.
The RuleBook Commitee met for nearly 7 months to come up with the first edition of the Rules of Play. In the initial draft, all magic and monster classes are left out, to be included after a series of playtesting is concluded (much the same way the other classes were tested before adding them).
The purpose of Wandering Ronin is to gather with friends and family on a pre-determined day, don your fighting gear and garb, and engage in simulated medival combat using foam weapons. Remember: if you aren't having fun, you aren't doing it right.
