  1. Hello!

    Hi Liska! Happy to hear you'll be coming! If you want to dive strait into lore, I recommend reading the Word Book http://www.mvgc.net/larp/worldbook.pdf I will also always recommend the Learn to Play section of the Rules Wiki, as it will give you a head start learning the rules. http://www.kingdomsofnovitas.net/wiki/pmwiki.php?n=Rules.Learntoplay Let me know if you have any questions! See you in August!
  2. A challenger approaches...

    Hey Gabby! Glad to see you'll be joining us too! The more the merrier! My name is Maggie. I'm the Marketing and Player Outreach Marshal here. I'm here to help you with your new player experience so if you have any questions or need anything, for sure let me know. I'm sure Nick has already guided you in the right directions, but this wouldn't be a new player post without me peer pressuring people in reading stuff. http://www.kingdomsofnovitas.net/wiki/pmwiki.php?n=Rules.Learntoplay The Learn to Play section of the Rules Wiki is a great, concise resource to learn how to play the game. http://www.mvgc.net/larp/worldbook.pdf The World Book here is where we keep all that sweet, juicy lore. Again, let me know if you need anything and I'll see you in August!
  3. HEWWO...?

    Hey Michael! My name is Maggie. I'm the Marketing and Player Outreach Marshal at Kingdoms of Novitas. Welcome! Nick has probably filled you in about a lot of stuff, but I always recommend some reading just to adjust yourself to our system. http://www.kingdomsofnovitas.net/wiki/pmwiki.php?n=Rules.Learntoplay There is the Learn to Play section of our rules wiki. It's a quick rundown of the rules, but it is also filled with a bunch of links to jump off from should you want to dive farther. The World Book is also fun to read http://www.mvgc.net/larp/worldbook.pdf It will help you get into the world of Novitas. Let me know if you have any questions. See you in August!
  4. Hello, I'm Morgan

    Hi Morgan! I'm the Marketing and Player Outreach Marshal at Kingdoms of Novitas. Glad you'll be joining us! It is acceptable to attend just one day of the event though for your first event I really recommend trying to attend the whole thing. A lot of the new player acclimation happens on Friday night and it's just a little bit harder to do Saturday morning. If you can't do it, that's totally fine and we can work with you, but if you can manage a full weekend, at least for your first one, I would. Glad you're already taking a look at our rules wiki. Gonna link it again for convenience www.kingdomsofnovitas.net/wiki/pmwiki.php?n=Rules.Learntoplay I also recommend the World Book http://www.mvgc.net/larp/worldbook.pdf it has all the fun lore bits. Let me know if you have any questions. Hope to see you soon!

    Hi Aidan! I believe I gave you my normal spiel in our email conversation so I'll spare you that. Instead, I'll just answer your question. Leveling up is actually rather easy in Novitas as you earn xp not by playing your character, but simply by helping the game. There are loads of ways you can learn xp! Signing in earns you xp, NPCing, helping set up/take down, writing a backstory, buying period appropriate footwear, submitting Post Event Letters, and so much more! Kingdoms of Novitas is a classless system so you can pick whatever skills you want. Choosing which skills you think will make your game fun is totally up to you. Also, the max health and the max damage you can do is four so a level 100 person and a level 10 person could have the same body and damage (if that's where you choose to spend your skill points). Things like armor also will help too. It doesn't take any extra skills to wear armor, but it will help protect you in your early days with not a whole lot of body. My best advice is to spend 1-3 (or more, I won't stop you!) games NPCing. It will help you build up some xp, figure out the game, and help you decide just where you want to spend those skill points. I think I NPC-ed three games before bringing in my PC and that gave me a pretty good groundwork for my first PC lo those many years ago.
  6. Hello Everybody!

    Super wonderful to hear! See you in August!
  7. New Larper lets get mythical

    Hi, Mckenzie! Super pumped that you'll be coming this weekend! The weather is looking like it's going to be a great event! To settle your nerves a bit, I always recommend reading our Learn to Play section of the Rules Wiki. It'll help you prep for the event and hopefully settle a bit of nervous energy http://www.kingdomsofnovitas.net/wiki/pmwiki.php?n=Rules.Learntoplay The World Book is also fun to flip through. It gives some background on the world of Novitas. Let me know if you have any questions. See you Friday!
  8. Hello Everybody!

    Hi Devin! I'm Maggie, I'm in charge of Marketing and Player Outreach here. I agree with your friends, you should totally come check us out. Along with talking to your friends about their experiences, a good way to get a feel for the game is to do two things. One is to read the Learn to Play section of the Rules Wiki here: http://www.kingdomsofnovitas.net/wiki/pmwiki.php?n=Rules.Learntoplay The World Book is also a good resource for checking out what the World of Novitas is like http://www.mvgc.net/larp/worldbook.pdf Let me know if you have any questions. I know jumping into something like LARPing can be a bit overwhelming, but I promise it's super easy and I'll do my best to make the transition as smooth as possible. Hope to see you at an event soon!

    Hi Andrew! Welcome to Novitas! Glad to see you'll be coming to join us! My name is Maggie, I'm the Marketing and Player Outreach Marshal here at Novitas. In order to prep for your first game, I normally suggest you do a bit of light reading. First, I suggest the Learn to Play section of our Rules Wiki http://www.kingdomsofnovitas.net/wiki/pmwiki.php?n=Rules.Learntoplay. It's a helpful little page that will help you get ahead in learning the game as well as helping you figure out what questions you will want to ask before and when you get there. Next, the World Book is a good read. It'll give you an idea of the type of world we play in http://www.mvgc.net/larp/worldbook.pdf Let me know if you have any questions. See you next week!
  10. New to LARP, looks really fun

    Hi Ryan! I'm Maggie, Marketing and Player Outreach Marshal. You talked to Shane and I at Mayfaire. I was the ginger with the red parasol. Nice to see you here! As for what to bring and some of what to expect, I'm going to refer you to the Learn to Play section of our Rules Wiki. I recommend every new player give this a read as it really helps you understand what you're getting into. http://www.kingdomsofnovitas.net/wiki/pmwiki.php?n=Rules.Learntoplay I also always recommend taking a peek at the World Book which details our game's lore. http://www.mvgc.net/larp/worldbook.pdf Giving those a read will definitely give you a good idea of what we do here. Let me know if you need help with anything else. See you soon!
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. 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!
  14. Newcomer

    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!
  15. 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!
