  3. NEW RULES WIKI

    Verified with rules, you are correct, wiki has been updated. Note that there is still a rule regarding 75% coverage in terms of plate can have up to 25% non-plate connective bits and still count as plate for all areas covered.

    Hello there, Here's an excerpt from the garb rules that might help you. Civen characters should draw influence from the Roman Empire between 27 BCE – 610 CE. Vleanoan and Evenandran characters should draw influence from medieval western Europe between 1066 – 1500
  6. Founder's Feast 2020 Items! Just as in previous years, we auction items off in order to fund our Larp and make it bigger and better. As always, these items are subject to change, as there are often clarifications and other stuff that can/will be addressed as the needs arise. We're having both a Traditional Auction (item goes to the highest bidder) and a Chinese Auction (put tickets into a bag, we draw a ticket and the winner gets the item). Please ask any and all questions about the items in the comments below.

    That's neat, I can see the similarities you're talking about with Greeks and Rome. In my mind, I think of the Vlean/ Civen civil war as similar to North and South Korea. At one time, they were one state. There was a costly war, and now it's split in two, with simmering conflict always under the surface. One of the two embraced democracy(Civen/South) and is open for trade and travel, the other theocracy (Vleanoans/north) and is closed off from the outside world as much as possible. The major difference from the Korea example is that both Civen and Vlean are very active outside their borders in the Freelands. It's common to meet a Civenite tradesman or a Vleanoan Septon, both with their own perspective on the merits of their country, and the relative demerits of the opposite. As far as costuming, if you're into a roman/Greek aesthetic and look, playing a Civenite is probably your best bet. Vleanoans wear clothes more like medieval Europe. But don't take only my word for it, Come and give it a try! There are a few Classics majors in our ranks. Maybe NPC your first game, take it all in, and go from there.
  8. Χαιρε!/Hail!

    I've just read the story of Civen, and I could see the similarities between the Roman Civil wars and theirs. would you consider Vleanoa more like Ancient Greece or just another segment of the Roman aesthetic from Civen?
  9. Χαιρε!/Hail!

    Hey! I'm glad you found us because you've come to the right game. Check out our World Book, specifically the Empire of Civen which gets a lot of its inspiration from Greece and Rome http://www.mvgc.net/larp/worldbook.pdf. I also recommend checking out the Learn to Play section of our Rules Wiki which will help you to get a head start on learning to play the game http://www.kingdomsofnovitas.net/wiki/pmwiki.php?n=Rules.Learntoplay. Let me know if you have any questions. Welcome to Novitas!
  10. Χαιρε!/Hail!

    I've been interested in trying out larping ever since I found out how huge it truly was! My inspirations are the Iliad and 300, and I'm a big fan o Greek myth!

    Ok, worn armor has a conflict : it says that 75% coverage gives coverage across the entire part (last paragraph, intro). It later says that worn armor only applies where worn under Armor Points, 2nd paragraph. I think the rule currently is "armor as worn" and we got rid of the 75% coverage rule a while ago. http://www.kingdomsofnovitas.net/wiki/pmwiki.php?n=Rules.Wornarmor

  17. Assassin

    Hello! At Novitas we don't have classes. Character skills are determined by how you spend skill points you acquire when you level up. As we don't have an assassin class (nor any class for that matter) there is no specific garb you need to wear. I've attached a few links to our rules wiki which should help guide you in the right direction.

    Also, is there certain garb i'll need to wear as an assassin for Novitas?
  19. Assassin

    So I've been to Novitas once before in the past but I only NPC'd. I'm working on an assassin main and was wondering how the leveling up works. Is it like Amtgard as far as gaining special abilities for each level, or does Novitas have its own set of rules? Please help. I want to return and be able to play a PC.

  23. Hi there!

    Maggie, as soon as I made this post I went over to the other threads and saw there was no January even for 2020 😓 But, I guess that makes it easier for me to decide what event will be my first! Thank you so much! I’ll be sure to let you know if I have any questions. Which I’m sure I will!
  24. Hi there!

    Hi Brooke! I'm Maggie, Marketing and Player Outreach Marshall at Kingdoms of Novitas. For clarification, we do not have a January event this year. Our February event, however, is Feb 7-8-9. Checking out the Learn to Play section is always a good choice. I also like to recommend the World Book to give you an idea of the world we play in http://www.mvgc.net/larp/worldbook.pdf Let me know if you have any questions about anything. I'm happy to help. Welcome to Novitas!
  25. Hi there!

    Hello! My name is Brooke and I’m new to LARP but I am stupidly excited to throw myself into it. I’m hoping to either attend the January or February event in 2020 and will know which one for certain within the next few days. I’ve been reading through the Learn to Play and the Wiki but I 100% welcome any advice you have newbie coming into their first event :) So yeah, I hope you’re all having a lovely day and, again, I really can’t wait to get started!

    Hi, Nick! I'm Maggie, Novitas' Marketing and Player Outreach Marshal. So glad you'll be spending your birthday with us! Before you first event, I often recommend a little light reading.

It breaks down the lore of the game. http://www.mvgc.net/larp/worldbook.pdf Welcome to Novitas! Let us know if you have any questions and we'll see you soon!
