  1. New Coinage

  2. New Coinage

    No numbers on the coins, please. That's a very modern concept. Sorry to keep moving goalposts and adding new parameters. I have no idea what we're looking for - or not looking for - until I see it.
  3. ID magic in mobile form

    Is this still working?
  4. New Coinage

    If it was easy I'd have done it myself. :D
  5. New Coinage

    Why would the elves not use elven script on their own coins?
  6. New Coinage

    These should be recognizably from our world, rather than cool-looking generic art. We've also never put in Evenandran exotics before...
  7. New Coinage

    It's time for new coins. This time we're buying 500 new exotics from www.fantasycoin.com. I've been haggling with them for a couple days, and I have them down to a reasonable cost for 30mm "gold" coins and setup costs. These are slightly bigger than our current coppers. But, we need art! Circular shape, 30mm diameter, 300 DPI. Coins have two sides, but you can submit as many individual images as you'd like. Each honest attempt gets you 5 XP (I am the sole arbiter of an honest attempt). Post submissions in this thread. Show me what you got, and the Marshals will pick the best two sides. Each winner gets 10 XP plus I'll give you one of the first coins we get. Entries due at 11:59 PM on January 1st. GOGOGOGOGOGOGOGOGOGOGOGOGOGOGOGOGOGOGOGOGOO!
  8. Player Initiated Plots (PIPs)

    Hey Plotters, this has been pushed to February, due to RL stuff needing Hannah in December.
  9. Hi, I run Operations. OPs is so many things. OPs is where new working groups are born, and where we retire working groups to when it's apparent the job isn't actually big enough to warrant a Marshal of it's own. I have subgroups for Buildings & Grounds, Medical, IT Services, and Inn Operations. B&G is who takes care of stuff like trail lights, curtains and lights (soon!) in the Inns, heaters, coordinating help days with the BSA, marking unsafe areas of the camp, fixing toilets and other appliances, firewood... all that sorta stuff. The list is damned near endless. My Second in charge of this is John Spencer (http://www.kingdomsofnovitas.net/forums/index.php?/profile/602-john-spencer-aka-flint/) Medical is people who keep the first aid supplies stocked, and are trained to provide first aid and medical assistance. This is everyone from someone with a Red Cross CPR certification to EMTs to actual medical doctors and nurses. My Second in charge of this is Amy Belawski (http://www.kingdomsofnovitas.net/forums/index.php?/profile/875-mistresspounce/) IT Services takes care of the website, forums administration and moderation, backend database, hosting, trouble tickets, FB groups, on-site network access, IT hardware, etc. My Second in charge of all this is Dave Morgan (http://www.kingdomsofnovitas.net/forums/index.php?/profile/5-coroth/) Inn Operations buys and prepares the food for the inns, schedules worker shifts, tracks costs, and so forth. My Second in charge of Inn Operations is Kerrie Lane (http://www.kingdomsofnovitas.net/forums/index.php?/profile/498-kerrie/) If you're interested in helping out with any of this, hit me up.
  10. Materials Allowed/Disallowed

    Stick to wools and linens and silks with no prints and you're excellent. Stick to cottons with no prints and you're acceptable. Stick to synthetic fabrics and you'll die frozen to death in the woods.
  11. Fish Fry

    Ice fishing is 100% a no-go. The ice on the lake never gets fully hard, as it's a spring-fed lake. Going out on it is strictly forbidden!
  12. As seen here in the pinned post: https://www.facebook.com/groups/KingdomsOfNovitas/
  13. Materials Allowed/Disallowed

    Nothing is specifically disallowed. Somethings are better than others, but if you wanna make your garb from synthetics that don't breathe or insulate, that's up to you. Now, things that look obtrusively modern will be disallowed - but there's no way we can give you an exhaustive list. If it would look out of place in Game of Thrones, or the LotR movies, it's probably no good.
  14. feigning death

    Yeah, absolutely not. It's blatantly taking advantage of OOP game mechanics.
  15. Shoe Check

    The look is fine, but I REALLY suggest not going with these because plastic. If you DO go with them, don't try and wear them outside until like next May.
