Sarah Scarer Smith is a professional Face & Body Artist who spends hours re-creating superheroes, comic book villains, manga characters and many other characters and images on the skin of dedicated models to bring fiction into life.
Obsessed with swords and swordplay since childhood, JP discovered Historical European Martial Arts (HEMA) in 2010 and finally realised his dream of learning how to hit other people with big swords. Safely. Ish.
Specialising in Liechtenauer longsword, with forays into Fiore, occasional thrusts into polearms and sideswipes into sword & buckler, wrestling, and dagger, he started his own HEMA club in Plymouth, while still attending the well-established “Iron Door Collective” in Exeter, UK.
Now seeking to start a new HEMA club in Gibraltar or the surrounding area, he is looking forward to the opportunity of showing the local community and comic-con guests an overview of historical fencing, with demonstrations and hands-on workshops for those interested in picking up a sword.
This is a outdoor game in which players meet and get briefed by Rebel officers that took part in many secret operations against Empire across all generations of Star Wars movies(check guests list above).
Mission is simple:
Players have to find secret code cards and collect special numbers. Problem is that the city is under Storm Troopers control. Players have to avoid contact by all means and safely get back to headquarters. It is a type of treasure hunt game with extra twist.
Winners of the game will be invited to celebrate the victory in O’Reilly’s on the 6th of May (Saturday 8pm) with our special Star Wars guests.
Tickets are £20 available in the shop or via the following Main Street stores: Euphoria, Music Corner & Vijay’s
