  4. New to LARP

    All you need to do is show up! All the paperwork we have on site. The only exception would be if you'd like to bring in a PC your first event and would like to submit their backstory. Normally I'd recommend NPCing the whole time your first event just so you get a hang of things, but if you feel like you're ready to jump in you totally can.
  5. New to LARP

    Thanks Maggie, I've read about 50% of the rules so far. I'll check out the World Book next. Thanks. Funny enough I'm camping in the Adirondacks this weekend - but I think I'm about 90 minutes farther north. If i can escape the family for awhile I'll venture down - otherwise I'm planning on being at the August event. Is there anything I need to do before coming to the Aug event - email someone/ forms. ect. I think I've got the gear I need (I've been reading through the forums to make sure my garb is ok).
  6. New to LARP

    Hi Beth! I'm Maggie. I'm the Marketing and Player Outreach Marshal at Kingdoms of Novitas. Conveniently, our rules wiki has a quick, Learn to Play section http://www.kingdomsofnovitas.net/wiki/pmwiki.php?n=Rules.Learntoplay. That is a pretty good rundown of the rules complete with links for anything you'd need elaboration on. I also recommend reading the World Book which details the lore of our little world. http://www.mvgc.net/larp/worldbook.pdf Our next event is technically next weekend. It's an out of character camp out called the Junebilee (I know it's in July) which you're absolutely welcome to attend http://kingdomsofnovitas.net/junebilee/. The next regular event is in August. Hope to see you there! If you have any questions about anything, definitely let me know. Welcome to Novitas!
  7. Catapults and other stuff

    Thanks for having us, Rob!
  8. New to LARP

    I'm Beth. New to LARP but not rpg. I've been playing D&D, AIM, ect for years - now taking the leap to LARP. I already own the costumes (from Ren Faires and cons), so I just need to learn the rules of Novitas. Looking forward to my first event!
  9. 2018 Junebilee FF Auction Items

    I was going to suggest something similar along the lines of "It has to be witnessed by a constable, elder, or staff and documented." That way you can still RP it fine for the most part and still police it relatively fine.
  10. Catapults and other stuff

    Most of our staff will be in at 9ish but don't anticipate getting to work projects 'til after lunch (noonish)
  11. Catapults and other stuff

    Rob - Tiff and I will come out Saturday. What time are you planning on getting going? (We're coming from Albany, so timing!!
  12. 2018 Junebilee FF Auction Items

    The poison lasts on the blade until it gets used then is gone. You cannot have multiple blade poisons on it. If you cast the spell mage blade on it it'll be a mageblade for the event. You still need to follow the rules for mage blade, 1 minute to land a legal hit with your spackets through it. Goblin iron and poisons cannot share a physical application with silver and elven steel. (Can't craft together and can't apply alchemy)
  13. Catapults and other stuff

    Thanks guys. I will check this later tonight then. See yu tomorrow.
  14. 2018 Junebilee FF Auction Items

    How does the Moldable Mace work with blade poisons? Does the poison's duration change from ten minutes to the entire event? Do you get infinite charges or just one? Same two questions for spells channeled through the mageblade. Also can the weapon be both goblin iron and elven steel at the same time?
  15. 2018 Junebilee FF Auction Items

    I swear I'm not. I expected you to answer it that way, but figured it was worth verifying before someone tried to get tricky with that.
  16. 2018 Junebilee FF Auction Items

    These items will be auctioned in AN order, not necessarily this order. I can't say until it's auction time
  17. 2018 Junebilee FF Auction Items

    Ryan: 1. Spells of the Well Some kind of refillable journal, refillable every junebilee 2. Piscean Extradition Step 1: owner puts the big item in a place, and carries the small item Step 2: Owner throws a spacket for "BANISH SPECIAL" Step 3: normal protections work Step 4: if success, caster explains to the target where to go Step 5: target goes to the other item and boops back into existence next to an unmoveable feb feast item Step 6: ??? Step 7: Profit 3. Peacekeeper's Fetters The effect is always on if you are wearing the shackles Likewise, when you take the shackles off the effects turn off 4. Alchemist's Phial Dump a bottle of potion/alchemy in at Sign-in, it refills every convergence No you can not pour it into another bottle The original thing is gone forever 6. Scepter of Spellblast If you hold the stick, you can throw like spellburst. Period 10. Gambler's Blade You roll a die, look up on the table. get a benefit You roll a second die, look that up on the table, get a benefit If you roll the same bonus twice, you only get one benefit, stop all dice rolls All benefits from this will stack, so you could get 2 immunities, but you could also have a magic/elvenSteel sword that doesn't do much of anything but let you downcall 11. Moldable Mace Are you just trying to be difficult? 1 spellstore on the weapon means you can use it to store 1 spell at a time, but after you cast the stored spell, you can store another spell. One spell at a time, you can't stack spellstores. Think sequential not parallel 13. Pendent of Independence Stacks means you can have two immunities. Banish is movement impairing, but leylines/dissipate are not, and someone else's Sanctuary is also not movement impairing 15. Necklace of the Six Reap Spirit is necromancy Only magic has schools, so creeping rot/ruin *damage* are not necromancy Dissipate is a nature spell Dispel is an enchantment spell This effect is non-dispellable but expires at convergence. 16. Reckless Necklace Spell effects don't end just because your character dies. If you're wearing this and get final rested, you're still not lootable. (But you're kinda screwed anyway) If you loan this to another character and they don't give it back to you by the end of the event, it is as though it was stolen. (See above RE: Reaping) If you aren't wearing the necklace, you are lootable If you loan this out and they aren't wearing it, it can be stolen 17. Wraithlord's Rapier There are no exceptions, only ever 1 pierce. 18. Boots of the Minotaur Even if the damage call is something otherwise impossible like "4 magic pierce slay strike disease curse minivan" you can wave your horns at that and take 1 point of normal body damage instead 19. Ring of Luck Literally anything short of a GM punishment 20. Book of Rituals Book is a single "item". Rituals are non-removable and repeatable with some limits 21. Unity All three items have the Feb Feast quality, but there is a single "Owner" All buffs means all buffs, including Magic, Alchemy, Rituals, etc. 23. Ring of Wizardy Choose a school at Traditional Feb Feast reset time. (This Auction)
  18. Catapults and other stuff

    My wife and I will be there for sure Saturday into Sunday. And we can bring food!
  19. Catapults and other stuff

    I have made a post to get an idea of numbers, I'm guessing at least 3 as many as 10. I plan on attending as long as work permits it.
  20. 2018 Junebilee FF Auction Items

    PSA: Please be aware that we have not procured props for most of these items. It took longer than expected to find a day and time when the four of us who figure these out could all meet up for two hours. I will work directly with the winners to get them props that are within our budget and aesthetically pleasing for them. I'd like to do that in the week immediately after Junebilee, so if you win something, do some shopping, look for something you like, and send me some links. If you're stuck, I can probably give you some suggestions or ideas where to look. Additionally, a bunch of these things I'll likely just make for youse myself (the books, the jewelry, the bracers, basically anything I can produce in my shop I'm happy to do so for you) so that's another option if you'd prefer. I'm pretty okay at the craftings. I'll remind everyone of this right before the auction.

  22. 2018 Junebilee FF Auction Items

    one more set of questions: Item 10) Does until you get two benefits mean that if you roll doubles (such as 5 for Elven steel twice) you roll again until you have something other than Elven Steel? If so what happens if you roll up a Silver + Elven Steel blade, do those count as redundant? What about Poison Immunity/ Primal Form/ Mind Blank which can't coexist? Would a possible solution to not being able to police this item be that you roll it up at Logistics when you check in, and those are it's stats for the weekend instead of per convergence?
  23. Catapults and other stuff

    Amy, Yes, probably Harden off the parking lot. I can put folks up there Sat night and Sun if need be. If more than 5 or 6 people coming, I need to know to adjust for food. Rob
  24. 2018 Junebilee FF Auction Items

    Will these items be auctioned in any specific order?
  25. 2018 Junebilee FF Auction Items

    A few questions (sorry for being that guy): Item 1) Does ripping the page out of the book mean that the item is done once all the pages are ripped out? Is this a finite use feb feast item? Item 2) If used offensively how do they know they get teleported? Or where to? Does grounding prevent this effect? Leylines doesn't work with things in your hands, what happens to the things in the hands of someone offensively forced to leylines? Is the emplaced object lootable? Item 4) Can you change the potion in it? I guess specifically does it refill the last potion placed in it at convergence? This is named the "Alchemist's Phial" can you put alchemicals in it or just potions? Item 11) I cast spell store on the weapon then a spell into the spell store, when I use the spell, it's the spell store that stays not the subsequent spell right (ie I can/need to now store a new spell into this because it's still a spellstoring blade, it doesn't keep the memory of the spell that got stored to then be cast infinitely)? Item 13) Mind blank stacks as in you get to have two immunity spells when you have this? Is banish a movement impairing effect? Item 15) The bearer chooses necromancy, are they immune to a medium who can no incant reap spirit (does this count as necromancy)? How about a monster that does that? The creeping rot spell isn't magic by design, is it prevented by this necklace? Same question for ruin. If the bearer chooses nature are they able to dissipate themselves or are they immune to that too? If you choose enchantment that would make you immune to dispel magic or does that spell target the spells on you? Is this effect itself dispelable? Item 16) Is there any risk in loaning this feb feast item to others (it can't be stolen from that person after all)? If a character is permanently killed does this effect continue to apply? Item 19) Is damage an effect that could be ignored with this? If yes, were you to get hit for say 4 disease, do you ignore the entire hit when you use this or one part (the 4 damage OR the disease)? If no same question with a Poison Stun tag bag. Item 21) if three people wanted to go in on this item as a group, would all 3 rings have the feb feast properties for the winners? Does all buffs include things like drinking beneficial alchemical items?
