Tell us a bit about yourself and what got you into larping
Long time ago in a "small town" I spent my Tuesday nights with a group of dudes that liked to tabletop. Those dudes found NERO NCI and then later NERO Kzoo. MANY years later, after I graduated, I tried out NERO Midwest, wasnt the biggest fan of it. But I gave it a second go when NERO Vanguard opened up, only half an hour away from my home. From there I was hooked.

Kristen Stubblefield is an accomplished podcaster, photographer, creative director, and whiskey enthusiast. Oftentimes you will find her traveling on weekends to either throw circle discs at a metal basket or hit other people in the woods with plumbing supplies.
Kristen works hard to capture the nostalgia of long lost geek fads, while partaking in the hopps from local breweries and reviewing all things pop-culture. She can be found behind the camera when activities include large gatherings of people dressed up in their wedding finery or also cosplaying high-fantasy versions of themselves.
Placing 3rd in America’s Next Top Podcaster, yes it was a real thing, Kristen prides herself on editing and recording her passions. Ms. Stubblefield is also the original export from Springfield, living in and around Chicago for the past 13 years.She is still hoping to be accepted as a native.

What is your favorite larping memory?
Too many to count!
But probably my most recent favorite from the SoMI Plot team. Is the mod that was ran using bluetooth speakers.
Full Moon. Check! Large Group of Adventurers who spent all day uncovering a ghost story. Check! A large creepy tree in the middle of sparce dead woods. Check! Having an out of body experience hearing the whispering noise of a "ghost" GET OUT and physically getting terrified. CHECK!
