Addtional Details for each year's event will be posted on the Forums - please visit there for updates!
Sign in will begin at 4pm. Please plan to arrive on or slightly after that time. We wish to begin the game at 5pm, and we plan to close registration at 6pm. If you absolutely have to arrive after 6pm, send James an email to make sign-in arrangements. The ball will end at midnight.
Try to car pool if possible. Park very close together to maximize on space. If you begin to park along the driveway, than only park on one side, whichever side people are parked on. Do not park on the opposite side of other cars along the road, causing the road to be tightened too much. At any point in time a fire truck needs to have access to the main building.
All of the KR policies extend to this event as they would to any other one-day in-game event. Anyone found to be breaking any policies will be punished to the same degree as of at a full weekend event. In particular this reminder is being especially made in regards to alcohol. If you arrive intoxicated you will be turned away at the door.
To reduce on waiting time, and maximize on play time, we strongly encourage you to dress-up prior to arriving at the hall. If you cannot, than their will be bathrooms in which you can dress.
The KR make-up kit will not be available. Plan your make-up needs ahead of time. You should attempt to do your make-up outside or in your car. Bring a mirror with you if you will need it. If you must do make-up in the bathroom, than bring a towel and lay it on the sink and be positive that you are not leaving behind makeup evidence.
Although Knight Realms will be preparing and providing food for a feast, we are going under the mindset that the more food the more of grand feast it may seem. So to that end, we are encouraging you to bring a dish to the Ball. This is not required, but doing so will get you extra service and in some cases build.
We are offering 500 SP for every cold dish or dessert, with no upper limit, and 1 build for a large Crockpot full of hot food with a maximum of one build per person.
Please check on the Forums before planning to bring food - a topic to discuss who is bringing what will be present, so that we may be organized and duplicates are not brought.
I will be bringing our mugs and chalices although their will not be a facility for cleaning them. Therefore when you get your first drink, you will get a tag to attach to your mug that you can write your name on. Reuse your mug/chalice throughout the night. If you have your own In-Game mug or cup, you are highly encouraged to bring it.
I might be bringing the metal plates. If I do, than on either side of the feasting table will be a garbage bag/can and a Tupperware container. Empty your plate off into the trash bag, throw the plastic utensils and napkins in the trash bag and place the plate in the Tupperware container. I will also have a stack of paper plates set out so that a few hours after the feast is done if anyone wants to nibble at leftovers they can.
Be respectful to the structure, and the place both inside and out. If the weather is good and we wander outside, be careful not to step on any flowers or anything. If the night turns out as great as I think it will, than we will want to make this a regular thing, but we will need to make sure we all conduct ourselves in a manner in which we would get happily invited back. If you see her consider thanking her for her hospitality near the end of the night.
Cost to NPC at the Ball will be the reduced price of $20. You will get all the build for PCing, you get to self teach or learn skills just as a PC would. Every NPC who lets us know that they are coming by two weeks prior to the event will have a NPC role hand crafted for them by plot. Please send an email to James to let him know if you are coming to NPC.
We are not allowed to perform combat of any kind in the building. In the unlikely event that it would make sense for your character to be removed by guards, we will simply have to story tell, and say that it happens without possibility of resistance. So don’t do anything that would result in us having to do that please!
Due to the nature of the Black Keep, Attuned weapons are able to be kept apart from their owners while there, and held by the guards. (This is to help enforce the out of game mechanic that we are not supposed to have weapons.)
Commodity cards will not be handed out or accepted for build. Wild Mage spells and envelopes will not be handed out. You will be allowed to perform creating skills such as creating scrolls, smithing, alchemy, manuscripts, etc., provided the resources you need (such as a forge or altar) are present.
You can play two characters. After you have paid in full for the first character your second character and any additional build for it would be 1/2 price.
First Character + all build: $35 +$10 +$10 +$10 = $65
Second Character + all build: $15 + $5 + $5 + $5 = $30
Any additional characters equals the same as the second character.
Any character that you pay for can get the full benefits of the ball in regards to skill teaching and build gained.
