Medieval Dragon on Antiqued Paper





Have each guest arrive as either their online character they currently have or one that they can make up just for the party.

Do your best to get your hands on some scrap wood (the wood can be weathered or new, depending on your preference or what is available.) Often times we can look on the sides of our own houses to find a few scraps left over from past projects. This wood is perfect for creating great looking signs. You can either nail a few together or let them stand alone (depending on their sizes and your own uses). With black acrylic paint (or a wide, black, permanent marker) write the names of different structures in town (i.e. Livery Stable, Blacksmith, Falconers, Royal Bakery, Cathedral, Abbey, Armory, Leather Worker's Guild (or any crafter's guild for that matter), Butchery, etc.) By placing these strategically around your event, you can easily create a small town (with the help of other mentioned decorations, as well). With these signs posted in the appropriate places, you can give easy directions as to the exact locations for each of the activities. Simple maps can also be created using the names on the signs. These signs can either be mounted into the ground, nailed to trees, or hung with rope to name only a few options. If you can't get your hands on any wood, cardboard from brown boxes would also work.

Have an entertainment center or other such 21st century items that are 'killing' the mood you are trying to set? Swags of fabric (looking for 'market place' or tapestry type patterns.) It's cheap and it also looks great as curtains, table cloths or as simple draping to hide the abovementioned. Check a 'garment district' at your local metropolitan city for the best prices.

Shields can be made easily using sturdy cardboard (either from large boxes or sheets of cardboard found behind large warehouse stores such as Costco). Shields come in a variety of shapes and sizes. Check out some heraldry sites on the Internet and you'll see several to choose from. Once cut out, the easiest way to decorate them is to spray paint them a solid color first. Then, tempura or poster paints can be used to decorate the covers. Construction paper can be cut into shapes and glued on as well (this works better for those larger, solid shapes like stripes and checkered boxes.)

This is a handy trick to create a castle feel indoors when you are able to create stone walls. Either spray paint durable cardboard gray (preferable) or use gray construction paper and cut them into block sizes (about 5" x 10"). Attach these all along the borders of a door jam with electrician tape (won't stick to walls the way masking tape does - leaving behind a gummier residue.) They look great and will greatly minimize your decorating (perfect for low budgets and little time.)

If you want to paint with a faux rock/stone finish (without spending an arm and a leg on those craft store kits) buy a few cans of spray paint instead. Gray, black and white should do the trick (unless you'd like to substitute gray with brown - for caves). With a hobby razor blade, lightly score the nozzle hole of the spray can. This will cause the paint to sputter rather than spray. Make sure the surface is covered first in the gray (or brown), then add some sputtering of the white and black.
