Welcome to our staff page. Featured here are the key figures behind the Frontier’s many different events and day to day operation.
In addition to those listed on this page The Frontier LARP also owes a great deal of its success to a dedicated team of Volunteers who have devoted countless amounts of time and energy, affectionately referred to as the Frontiersmen. We also rely on countless other casual volunteers, without whom many of our games wouldn’t work. To all of you who have helped us out over the years; Thank you!
