  1. You've Introduced Yourself. What Next?

    The earliest you can show up is around four. Anytime between 5-8 is my recommendation. I start the new player orientation speech at around 8:30 so I always suggest showing up a bit before then so you have time to get settled before I start talking at you for an hour or so. The earlier you show up, the more likely you're able to help with set up which will get you some xp. It's also nice showing up with some daylight available so you get a chance to see what everything looks like before the sun goes down.
  2. You've Introduced Yourself. What Next?

    Great to see you'll be joining us! So we have cabins with bunks so you'll just need pillows, sleeping bags and/or blankets. We've got shower houses so bring towels and toiletries. I recommend a good old electric lantern for finding your way around at night. We do provide a lot of meals, but bringing your own drinks and snacks that you'll want is never a bad idea. Bug spray/sun screen depending on weather. Plus of course all of your game garb and gear.
  3. New To Larp

    Hi Scott! Welcome! My name is Maggie. I'm the Marketing and Player Outreach Marshal here at Kingdoms of Novitas! Looking forward to meeting you too! While you're waiting for this weekend, I recommend a little bit of light reading, http://www.kingdomsofnovitas.net/wiki/pmwiki.php?n=Rules.Learntoplay Reading this Learn to Play section of the rules wiki will definitely help you get ahead of the game in figuring out how to play the game. To get a sneak peek of the world of Novitas, I recommend scrolling through our World Book http://www.mvgc.net/larp/worldbook.pdf Let me know if you have any questions at all. See you Friday! Welcome to Novitas!

    Hi Matt! I'm Maggie. I'm the Marketing and Player Outreach Marshal here at Kingdoms of Novitas. Welcome! It's great that you've started on the World Book! I'm also going to link you to the Learn to Play section of the rules wiki http://www.kingdomsofnovitas.net/wiki/pmwiki.php?n=Rules.Learntoplay That will help you get started on the rules end. There's a couple reasons why I generally don't recommend PCing your first event. NPCing is what gets you more XP to build your PC and NPCing also helps you figure out how how the various skills work so you know what to pick for your character. I personally waited three games before bringing in my PC. However, if you want to jump in on a PC your first event, you're absolutely welcome to and I'm happy to help you build your character when you get to game. I know a lot of people who PCed their first event had a great time. Just remember you'll need a different set of garb from your NPC clothes (you can probably reuse your pants and boots if they're generic enough) and you'll need to provide your own weapon if your character uses one. Let me know if you have any questions. See you next week!
  5. Hello everyone!

    Hi, Danielle! My name is Maggie. Glad you're coming to give our game a shot! I gave the spiel to your husband, but it won't hurt to do it again. Since you're interested in the world, I'll start with our World Book. I recommend giving it a read. It's a book that'll give you an idea of our lore and the world we play in http://www.mvgc.net/larp/worldbook.pdf Rules-wise, I recommend reading the Learn to Play section of the Rules Wiki. It's a quick and easy summary of what you'll need to know to play the game. I go over a lot of it in a new player orientation speech at the beginning of every game, but it definitely helps to give it a look before you play. Let me know if you need help with anything! Welcome to Novitas!
  6. Hey everyone!

    Hi Ryan! Welcome! My name is Maggie. I'm the Marketing and Player Outreach Marshal here at Novitas. Glad you're coming to check us out! May is a really great event to start with. It'll be our 15th anniversary. Before you begin, I recommend a little bit of light reading. Firstly, I recommend checking out the Learn to Play section of our rules wiki. The rules team really managed to boil down how to start out into a pretty easy read. It's super helpful http://www.kingdomsofnovitas.net/wiki/pmwiki.php?n=Rules.Learntoplay I also like to recommend looking through our World Book which goes through the lore of the world of Novitas. NPCing your first game is a great choice. I NPCed my first couple games and it really helped me figure out both how to play the game and what I wanted to do PC wise. Let me know if you or your wife have any questions. See you in a few weeks and welcome to Novitas!
  7. Possible Boots for KoN

    Hello! Great to see you'll be joining us! They will for sure be acceptable. I'm not certain how comfortable they'll be or how long they'll last, but they definitely work.
  8. A traveler with a feathered hat arrives from the East

    Yess! Can't wait to see you
  9. Read This Before Posting In Here!

    Welcome to Novitas everyone! I recommend before your first event reading the Learn to Play section of our Rules Wiki http://www.kingdomsofnovitas.net/wiki/pmwiki.php?n=Rules.Learntoplay and then our lore in our World Book http://www.mvgc.net/larp/worldbook.pdf Let me know if you have questions and I hope to see you all soon!
  10. Ling here.

    It's out of the ordinary, but not impossible. We've had a couple Elvish barbarians before.
  11. Ling here.

    Hey! I'm Maggie. I am the Marketing and Player Outreach Marshal here at Kingdoms of Novitas. We'd have about the same commute time. I'm coming from Buffalo though. It's for sure worth the drive. Since you've got a bit of time before you can attend, I recommend doing a bit of light reading. Firstly, we have a convenient Learn to Play section on our Rules Wiki http://www.kingdomsofnovitas.net/wiki/pmwiki.php?n=Rules.Learntoplay. Also, we have a World Book that sums up the lore of our world which will help you figure out how to fit your character into Novitas. http://www.mvgc.net/larp/worldbook.pdf If you have any questions, I'm happy to answer them. See you in the Spring!

  13. New Players with Questions

    Hello! You can direct your questions my way.
  14. New to larp and ready to obsess

    Luckily those are both things I cover in more detail in the new player orientation speech I do at the beginning of every game. It'll definitely become more clear when we talk it out.
