Announcement from James Last event we found the ovens were still left on when we went into the kitchen on Tuesday after the event.  For the April 2024 event with the exception of breakfast provided by Chelsea the stoves, range, and ovens in the main inn kitchen are off limits to all players for the duration of the event.  If you planned on using them to make food please find alternative plans for this event.  Please note this does not include the refrigerators which are still available for storing food. We will update you if this ban continues. The Officers From the Adventurer’s Guild With the main kitchen being closed. The stove in the adventurers guild will have a sign in and out sheets for people using it. You will need to bring your own cooking implements and be responsible for cleaning up the area after use. The kitchen will be closed at 2am Friday night, open at 9am Saturday morning and close again at 2am Saturday night  and will not be available on Sunday. Community Reminder Remember your Ok check in systems and that it is ok to step away from more intense scenes. Thank you for your continued use of the Discords OOG check-in system as well! Logistics Reminders Gathering: To gather materials, a player is encouraged to take a small group of friends (or go solo!) and engage on an expedition to find materials. There are no required locations for gathering but we would love for players to pick appropriate areas for what they are gathering! Roleplay! The roleplay time to gather is 30 seconds per individual component. At the end of the roleplay time, each player can return to logistics and inform the marshal at the window how long they were gathering for and what type they gathered. Borrowing from Logistics: If you borrowed a weapon from logistics you are required to speak to the Logistics Marshal on duty. They will make on your card and sign off on your borrowing. You must return your borrowed items to Logistics By 1pm on Sunday as that is when the last logistics shift ends. The Logistics Marshal on duty must sign off that the item was returned. Safety Reminders Expect the camp to be particularly muddy due to the rainy weather slated from Wednesday to Friday so be sure to dress appropriately to better keep warm and dry. Ticks are becoming active again so be sure to take precautions via bug spray and regular tick checks, remember that they can be very small so check carefully. Cards Announcements Card Team will be available to help new players during check-in from 6p-9p in the bar. Be respectful of our card team's personal needs and do not make requests of them before this time. As a note, the purpose of this check-in time is primarily to help new players (and those returning after a long hiatus). If you are a regular player, please try to get in touch with a member of Card Team before the event to handle any issues. Read your card notes. This is the primary way for our teams to contact you and tell you important things. You are responsible for reading these notes and knowing what is in them. Please try to get your cleanup signed off and turn your cards into the card box within a reasonable amount of time after lay-off. I know we're all tired on Sunday and want to hang out with friends, but Card Team is also tired and cannot leave until your cards are turned in. All signatures on cards (bank transactions, lessons, signoffs, etc) must have the player's initials AND card number, without exception. Please try to write legibly on your cards! If we can't read it, it doesn't get added. Lore Reminder Lucian will be having Open Office Hours from 10 am to Noon Saturday and 9 am to 11 am Sunday. Please use this time to ask him questions about Restricted Race Applications,  Backstories,  lineages/lairs/vanity titles, Exalted roleplay and similar. Do not make requests of him regarding these things during active gameplay. Exalted Rules Announcements If you have successfully performed Ritual of Time Stop, please make a note on your card of your success chance and ritual failure result, as this determines the success of rituals you use Time Stop to do. If you can’t provide this information, you will be assumed to have performed the ritual with your minimum chance of success, and have rolled an exact number to not fail it (which may negatively impact your ability to use Time Stop to perform rituals). If you have the Legendary Passive of any class with rituals, including Sorcerer, all rituals learned in order to qualify for that legendary are a base chance of 80%. The ritual Expel from Lair may not be performed at all in a room larger than 20 x 20 feet, particularly this applies to public spaces including the Main and Bar Room of the Inn, as well as the Main Room of the Adventurer's Guild. The rooms upstairs in the Inn, or Side rooms in the Adventurer’s Guild may benefit from the ritual. Additionally, any space outdoors of 20 x 20 feet may benefit from this.

  • March 2024 Online Announcements

    Schedule: Earliest Arrival is noon. Check in begins at 6pm. Card Support in the Inn is 6-9pm.

New player training will be at 7:30pm, Friday night in the barn and a new player tour mod will be at 11am Saturday.  New players, make sure to read the handout given to you at new player training! It has a lot of useful information for beginners. There will be a workshop on Component Gathering RP at 9pm on Friday in the Inn. Look for Nick C. and Peaches! Saturday Camp Cleanup: If you are leaving before lay off or want to get your camp cleanup done early, meet Alice at the Inn Kitchen between 6 and 6:30pm on Saturday for a mid-game assignment. Gathering System To collect components you must complete 30 seconds of roleplay per component collected  up to a total of 30 components per gathering (15 mind of rp). We ask that you roleplay what you're gathering! For example - for floral maybe you're collecting flowers or twigs from a nearby bush.  For mineral perhaps you're collecting and breaking open rocks for specific minerals,  etc. We ask that you have fun with it while we work on a more complete system! General Reminders When you have a question, please look on our website and in our rulebook before either posting to the Q&A on Discord or directly messaging Team Leads or Marshals. We appreciate this courtesy and respect for everyone’s boundaries and energy outside of KR. Reminders from the Atmosphere Team this month! Stay in character.

We have noticed a severe uptick in this with the new exalted rules. Please be mindful of your trash. Safety Reminders Reminder we will be using a new waiver this event so be sure to read it thoroughly during check in. Temps will no longer be taken as well. We have noticed an uptick of players getting hit in the head among other less desirable places so please be sure to mind your swings. Finally, despite spring being around the corner it’s slated to rain on Saturday with temps getting below freezing into the evening, be sure to bring appropriate garb and be mindful of ice. Please remember to dress warmly when arriving for check in - in case the line stretches out the door, as is sometimes the case! Cards Announcements Card Team will be available to help new players during check-in from 6p-9p in the bar. Be respectful of card team and do not ask them card questions before this time.

For example demonic traits for a Zakol. These were either outlined on the world anvil page, in your application or as part of the conversation when approval was being processed. If an atmosphere or lore team marshal asks you to adjust your costuming or roleplay please treat them respectfully and do it to your best ability. If something feels in error please reach out Lucian.

General Reminders When you have a question, please look on our website and in our rulebook before either posting to the Q&A on Discord or directly messaging Team Leads or Marshals. We appreciate this courtesy and respect for everyone’s boundaries and energy outside of KR. Personal Abilities Note from Drew Hey everyone, A little while ago I sent out emails to everyone who submitted for a Personal Ability stating if it was approved, denied, or if we needed additional comments from you so please check your emails and reply-all back if needed. Secondly as a reminder if you have a personal ability that is approved you need to follow the RP Guidelines & have considered how your character would accomplish the Achievements associated with those skills. If you need guidance or help please reach out to anyone on Rules Design for assistance. If you are approved for an ability you are able to use it this month even if it's not yet on your card. Mara will try to have cards updated but it is week of the event and there is a chance not every card will be fully noted. Lore Team: If you have purchased a Lineage, Lair or Vanity title from the banquet and not yet submitted this form yet please consider doing so if you know what you want! If you don't you can wait but I look at them on a rolling basis so I will not seek you out to make sure you submit it! https://forms.gle/REMLAZZ8uMzKJFnZ6 Exalted Reminders: We are happy to announce that we have finished the first round of approving players who have legendaries to teach exalted lists! On friday please check your card to see if you are interested in knowing if you can teach. Players with these approvals may teach exalted lists notated in the card note. Some of the notes have exceptions to skills you cannot teach. In most instances these skills require a exalted team member to assist in marshaling. If you have any questions please reach out to an exalted Team Member. We would like to remind everyone that while using the ritual: Selendrial's Transformation that you may only select a non-exalted ability. This includes exalted passive skills. Certain NPCs card may not specify whether or not a passive skill is exalted, which if the passive skill is not present in the Base Rulebook must be approved by Rules Design. Specifically, the passive of Werewolf (Lycan Regeneration) is deemed to be Exalted due to the it's similarity to the Exalted Class of the same name. Any other similar passive abilities, such as Troll Regeneration, should also be treated as Exalted. Players with these rituals may select another non-exalted skill from the monster in question for the remainder of the duration of Selendrial's Transformation. If anyone has questions about this, please PM Tim P. Additionally, please remember that you need to at least partially match the costuming of the creature you are deriving an ability from. Atmosphere Reminders -Roleplay your combat and sell your blows. It makes combat more fun for everyone. -Please stay in character. If for some reason you need to go out of game, please do so away from other players as to not impact their immersion and gameplay. Please do not interrupt a scene for an OOG comment unless its necessary. - Please do not openly use your phone. We get that there are times when you may need to check the time or check a rule, but please try to do these checks with your phone under a table or away from other players. We have noticed a severe uptick in this with the new exalted rules. - Please be mindful of your trash. Rules Reminders Friendly rules reminders: You can only have 1 augment of the same type active at any time unless a skill states you may have more than 1. If you have latent defenses cast on you only 1 of each specific skill can be on you at a time. Consumables that are given as a latent require them to be given to you prior to calling as a defense and you can only have 1 of each per latent rules Please check your consumable recipes some of them have secondary means of activating as defenses if you have talent slots. Worn armor does not automatically repair between fights if you want to keep using armor please get it repaired. Rests require you to stay in the same area for 30mins or have wanderlust. You only regain 10 skills. Movement skills do not require a hold please exit combat with you weapon straight up You cannot be immune to an attack while using the skill intercept Safety Reminders The weather is looking quite wet leading up to the event weekend in conjunction with snow melt so please plan on camp being quite muddy. Be sure to do your best to keep dry and pack extra socks! Remember atmospheric requirements are secondary to protection from the IRL environment, if you have concerns feel free to reach out to either myself or the Atmosphere Team. If you ever need a Safety Team Member and one is not present, there is always a member on call. Either go to logistics where the on call list is posted and call them on their phone. Or ask any Marshal with access to the Marshal Chat in Discord to check the threaded on call list. Reminder, if you feel someone is having an obvious and serious medical emergency, do not hesitate to call 911 and activate an emergency response. Card Reminders Please read your card notes! This is the primary way for our teams to contact you and tell you important things, so be sure to read them every month. Your character card being approved does NOT mean your backstory has been approved! Lore Team will leave a separate note on your card when they have reviewed and approved your backstory. We encourage you to take photos of your card(s) after an event before turning them in! If there is an issue, it helps both you and us resolve it in a timely manner. Remember that all rituals must be noted on a character card, whether your own or the target's (if you cast a ritual upon another character). Use the lined space on the back of the character card. If you use an invokable ritual, you are responsible for crossing it out or otherwise denoting it as used. Content Reminders Please check the Discord for casting calls. We would love to give NPC roles to new people and have fresh faces. If you're interested in getting into more combat oriented NPC roles, talk to one of the CR Leads and we can brief you on the best way to get more exposure and coordinate with other teams. We love having different people cast across our plots and it gives the world vibrancy when we don't have one person as multiple characters. It is our pleasure to announce that we have officially opened up the New Submissions for Personal Plot six months early! We still have a few people to clear from the backlog, but we have already started to pull people from the New Submissions list and we are excited to run these epic tales for you folks. If you submitted an application for a personal plot, stay tuned! Once we clear most of the submissions from this last round for personal plot, we will re-open the application. We thank you for your patience. Logistics Hey everyone! Just a few friendly reminders from your Logistics team. When you are in line for check-in please remember to be conscious of your volume while inside the actual building. Please continue to talk with your friends and have a good time while you're waiting but also remember that the Logistics marshals checking people in need to be able to communicate effectively with the other players at the desk. Please remember that you walk in the right door, check in with the marshals and go out the makeup room door on the other side (Please do not go back out the entrance). There is an expectation of not only the check-in marshals but the players as well to remain courteous when interacting with one another. I know check-in can be a stressful time but lets all remember that we're all people and deserve the same level of respect and kindness that you should show to anyone in public. We're all here to have fun and enjoy the weekend, lets make sure we start it off right! You may only sign yourself up for NPC shifts. Please do not try and sign up your group of friends. Check-in is first come first serve, please remember you may not get your shift of choice, come with a back up plan just in case your shift is already taken. Thank you so much for working with us as we settle in for this new year and get back to it!

Please do not interrupt a scene for an OOG comment unless its necessary. Please do not openly use your phone. We get that there are times when you may need to check the time or check a rule, but please try to do these checks with your phone under a table or away from other players. We have noticed a severe uptick in this with the new exalted rules. Please be mindful of your trash. A reminder regarding spirits: If you see someone in a blue headband and have chosen for your character to be able to see spirits, your character sees a glowing blue ball of light. It is not possible to tell who the spirit belongs to until you have started the process of resurrecting them. Safety Reminders Just a reminder that players are encouraged to travel together at night, there have been coyote encounters on camp recently. If you see or hear large animals (coyotes/bears), please notify any staff member and those you come across who might not be aware. Players must avoid areas with active large animal activity. If large animals ever approach you or others with aggressive intent do not run away or turn you back to it! Stand your ground, wave your arms, and yell with a loud and authoritative tone until they leave. The vast majority of animals you may encounter in camp will run away from such a display. Additionally, we had some confusion last month with some players believing they heard wolves in the camp. Please know that this is not possible as wild wolves are not present in NJ and have not been for a long time. Also please note that we consider “Coywolves” or Eastern Coyotes as Coyotes and will treat them as such when reacting to them on camp. We are entering the Winter Season, please ensure you are taking precautions to ensure you’re staying warm and hydrated. Keep dry and ensure you’re wearing proper garb made from wool or other blends. Please avoid cotton when possible as it holds moisture to your body making you colder. Statehouses are always open to those that need to warm up. Keep an eye on yourself and on your fellow players. Feel free to reach out to a Safety Marshal if you need additional advice regarding cold weather Larping. Card Team Reminders -If you are a Patreon subscriber, please make sure your Patreon billing info remains up to date! -Please read your card notes! This is one of the primary ways for our teams to communicate with you. -Your character card being approved does NOT mean your backstory has been approved!

  • Rules Advisory for November 2023

    Rules Advisory for November 2023! There will be a few mechanics too look out for, and to be extra clear, I will not be going in depth about them at Opening Ceremonies because I want to get the event started quickly. So please make sure to read and ask any questions ahead of time! For starters, there will be a fungus among us! MECHANIC #1: PUTRICORDYCEPTIS This is a disease that infects the host with a fungal growth that will slowly take over their body and turn them into an undead creature. While infected, the character’s body total cannot be detected by any means, nor are they aware of how injured they are. (ex. Even a severed arm they will not acknowledge and try to act as if its still there.) When the character drops, they immediately go into the critical stage of their death count. After that has expired, they rise up again, gain 50 Armor and the following ability: Infectious Rot - Once the character loses all Armor, they explode infecting the nearest living target with spores. The target then becomes infected with Putricordyceptis. This is an auto-hit Disease and may be defended as such. Every time the character dies in this way, the cycle repeats until the infection is cured. This cannot be removed through normal Disease cures. Any means that can cure it will trigger Infections Rot. RESURRECTION Any character who is resurrected by another Undead PC will gain the same template as the resurrector. Fallow may raise a PC as any of the templates. Sacred Resurrection is unaffected by this. Characters with Animate Dead may choose to resurrect a PC as the type of Undead they are, or as a Wraith, Skeleton, or Zombie. ALL undead raised by Fallow or any undead raised by those who have become undead because of Fallow have the following commands they must follow: You may not intentionally destroy yourself to free you from undeath. You must follow any command given by Fallow himself. Stats for the Undead Templates will be available in logistics and are only to be used this month for any PCs raised as Undead. Any PCs turned undead *WILL NOT* be undone by plot at the end of the event and will persist beyond November. It is entirely on you how long you remain in this state and how you overcome it. Setting the Tone and Expectations We have been memeing pretty nonstop for the last few weeks about Fallow and that is absolutely wonderful. I've loved every bit of it! But I want to encourage that the memeing stops at Lay-on. While it is a light-hearted villain in a sense, like a saturday morning cartoon, there is still very real danger coming and I don't want that to be cut short by an out of place joke. I promise you, the event will be all the more fun if you buy in to the story unfolding, even when it gets a little absurd. My goal is to aim for a little absurdity and a lot of horror. Secondly, I want to make it very clear from the start, I do not intend to pull punches or drive the plot in any one direction. You can lose, and it can have a very lasting effect. I have planned for these scenarios and they have the chance to be just as fun as winning in their own way. We're telling a story together, I'm just setting the stage! So please, go in ready to buy in, and have just as much fun winning or losing!
