If they were to get professional teachers in to teach a class what would like to see?

Air brush techniques, weapon or armor construction, prosthetics creation, costume design/construction, etc...?

This is an interesting idea. I'd have to go with makeup experts and costume designers.

Honestly, weapon design is almost completely unique to NERO (and some other larps) so the best teacher at it would probably be someone already playing the game with just a bunch of experience building the weapons.

However I've seen alot of people spend money on costuming and makeup, that if they utilized better could improve both of them without increasing cost. Like, at all.

Costuming, definitely. Problem there is that it takes a lot of time usually to make just one thing.

How to make your own prosthetic would also be cool, we have a few players that do that already.

I would like to see classes on combat for various weapons, especially for new players and npcs, because I have npc'd a couple of times, and I'm starting as a contract npc at my chapter next week, and I'm ok with a sword, sword and board, two weapons, one handed blunt, and I'm great with a staff, but I don't know how to use much else, I have been forced to use a polearm and a spear in the past, and I have no idea how to use them, I also don't know how to use two handed sword or two handed blunt, so fighting classes would be great!

Thanks for the opinion guys.

We are currently running Make-up Airbrush "How to" classes and were thinking of adding a "How to make your own prosthetic" and some costume sewing classes.
