FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Is this game only for women?

​No. The primary focus of the game is the role of the WAAF but there will be places available for RAF pilots.

Can men play WAAF?

Our only gender restriction is on characters - WAAF must be female characters and RAF must be male characters.

Can I play if I’ve played before?

We are happy to see returning players. The core elements of the game haven’t changed, but we have enhanced some aspects based on feedback from the last two runs.

Are we camping?

There are no bunks available on site. You can camp In Game or Off Game. There is limited space for indoor roll-mats in the crew room - if you desperately want one of these, rather than camping, please contact us at at wingandaprayerlarp@gmail.com. Alternatively you can take a room at a nearby hotel, WAAF were often billeted with local families near the base, travelling in for their shifts.

There are no showers on site.

What's the food situation?

All meals on Friday and Saturday will be In Character, which means rationing is in effect! The menu is vegan friendly. You'll get a chance to make us aware of any additional dietary requirements before we decide on the menu.

There will be period-appropriate cakes and biscuits available at any time in the Mess, along with tea and coffee. Both cow’s milk and rice/oat milk is provided.

If you wish to bring additional snacks, drinks or any alcohol, you are welcome to do so. We ask that only period-appropriate food and drink be brought into in-game areas. And remember that being drunk on duty is a serious offence!

Can I crew instead of playing?

No. We have a very small crew to run this game, all of whom have already been selected for specific roles. But thanks for the offer!

Is the game 24-hour Time In?

There will be no Time Out call on Friday night, but nor will any plot events be scheduled between 00:00 and 07:00 on Saturday.

What time does it finish?

We aim to call Time Out at around 23:00 on Saturday, but this is flexible depending on how exhausted the players are.

How accessible is the game?

The site itself is fully accessible by wheelchair. There are no stairs, and a disabled toilet is available. We will also have an Off Game space available for ​those who need to take a break.

Any and all modern mobility aids, assistive technology etc. required will be entirely acceptable and should be regarded as OOC by all players.

We will attempt to make sure that all accessibility needs are catered for wherever possible. Please do get in touch if you have any questions or would like to check the game’s suitability.

Please note, however, that WAAF characters will frequently be put in high pressure situations and will constantly need to handle numbers when on shift. These factors are fundamental to the game and cannot be avoided.
