A day in the park with Stormwrath

It's 100 degrees Fahrenheit in Riverside Park, Wichita, Kansas, but that doesn't deter Eric Simoncic and Andrew Walker, members of Stormwrath, the local chapter of the Midwest Dagorhir Union, who spent the hot day practicing with foam weapons. Kelsey Ryan of the Wichita Eagle has the story.

Every Saturday, the group gathers in the park for battles and LARPing (live action role playing). “I like the fighting. I started getting good, and I liked getting good,” said Eric Simoncic. “It’s something to grow at, and you’re constantly going to grow. You’ll hit a peak, but you’ll never be perfect. There’s always something to learn.”
