Paddywhack, NZ’s Purveyor of Larp Gear
Paddywhack will have a stall at Chimera on the Friday before the first game. The stall will be in the same room as the convention registration desk. This is a good chance to pick up any latex weapons, bows, leatherworks or other equipment as Ryan will have fresh stock in, along with copies of the new Epic Armoury 2013 catalogue, and the Forgotten Dreams catalogue. Paddywhack will only be set up on the Friday from 6pm to 7:30pm.
Snacks and Drinks
On Chimera weekend, we will have a variety of soft drinks and energy drinks (in sugared and sugarless varieties) as well as various candy and snacks available at a cost of around $1-$2.
