  3. Hello!

    Hey Greta! Welcome! I'm Maggie, Marketing and Player Outreach Marshal here at Kingdoms of Novitas. I'm glad you're joining us! I think you're going to have a blast. I recommend checking out our Learn to Play section of our Rules Wiki. It will help you get a bit of a head start on learning the game http://www.kingdomsofnovitas.net/wiki/pmwiki.php?n=Rules.Learntoplay. The World Book is always a good read too. It will help you get to know the World of Novitas http://www.mvgc.net/larp/worldbook.pdf Feel free to join us on Facebook as well! We will be holding some online events in the meantime!
  4. Hello!

    Hi Chris! I'm Maggie, Marketing and Player Outreach Marshal. I was a theatre person prior to LARPing as well. It's a great transition. We're all super bummed about the current situation, but all of us staff have very exciting plans for our triumphant return! In the mean time, I recommend reading the Learn to Play section of our Rules Wiki (and any other sections that interest you) http://www.kingdomsofnovitas.net/wiki/pmwiki.php?n=Rules.Learntoplay Also, the World Book is a fun resource to learn about the world we play in http://www.mvgc.net/larp/worldbook.pdf Let us know if you have any questions. Hope to see you in the fall! Welcome to Novitas! Edit: Also! Feel free to join us on Facebook. We are having online gatherings as well in the mean time.
  5. bottle holder?

    I sent a message to our Prop Marshal, Dustan. He'll come have a look and give you an answer on whether it will work or not. It seems pretty neat.
  6. Hello! I am hoping to attend my first event

    I don't see why not! See you in February!
  7. Armor rules

    The head is not a legal target for damage, helmet or not regardless of weapon type (missile/melee). However, if you get bopped in the head with a tagbag which is our thrown magic signifier (literally a cloth square filled with bird seed), you do have to take whatever effect that was. TL;DR: arrows and weapons to the head no, tag bags yes. Regardless of helmet usage.

  10. Greetings

    Hi Greg! Welcome to Novitas. I'm Maggie, the Marketing and Player Outreach Marshal. NPCing is definitely a good way to start. I NPCed for three full games before building a PC and I've got to say it really helped me get a grasp on everything. That was seven years ago, lol. Now I'm hooked! We have events nearly every month. www.kingdomsofnovitas.net has our event schedule on the front page so we'd be happy to have you whenever your work schedule allows. My tips would be to check out the Learn to Play section of our Rules Wiki. It will help you get a grasp on the rules before you walk through the door. http://www.kingdomsofnovitas.net/wiki/pmwiki.php?n=Rules.Learntoplay The Word Book is also a fun read. It is a book all about our game's Lore http://www.mvgc.net/larp/worldbook.pdf If you have any questions, be sure to let me know. Hope to see you soon!
  11. New to this

    Hello! I believe we've spoken a bit on Facebook and I've sent you the regular links. I've linked above the big ol thread on boots. We can help you narrow it down. Do you have any already? If not, what's your budget?
  12. 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!

  14. 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.

  15. 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!
  16. Nick/Wilhelm

    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. Firstly, the Learn to Play section of the Rules Wiki is always super helpful in giving you a rundown of the game: http://www.kingdomsofnovitas.net/wiki/pmwiki.php?n=Rules.Learntoplay The World Book is always a fun one. 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!
  17. Henlo

    Hello! Welcome! I'm Maggie, Marketing and Player Outreach Marshal at Kingdoms of Novitas. Looks like you already did all the things I've suggested so you're all set there. @Dustan is our Props and Atmosphere Marshal and once you get settled into the game, he'll be happy to chat more about that stuff with you. Let me know if you have any questions. See you in a few weeks!
  18. Hello, Good World.

    Hi Ernest! Welcome! I'm Maggie, Marketing and Player Outreach Marshal. I see you've been combing through the Rules, but I like to point out the Learn to Play section because it's just helpful http://www.kingdomsofnovitas.net/wiki/pmwiki.php?n=Rules.Learntoplay. You've looked at the World book too so that's good as well. Let me know if you have any questions and hope to see you at an event soon!
  19. Hello to all

    Hello and welcome! I'm Maggie, Marketing and Player Outreach Marshal. I recommend reading two things as a new player: the Learn to Play section of the Rules wiki http://www.kingdomsofnovitas.net/wiki/pmwiki.php?n=Rules.Learntoplay and our World Book http://www.mvgc.net/larp/worldbook.pdf. If you have any questions, definitely let me know. Welcome!
  20. Hello! I am hoping to attend my first event

    That's okay. We will definitely still be here! See you then!
  21. Introduction

    Hi Matthew! I'm glad you're interested in checking us out! Seems like you've already done all of the reading I usually recommend. Let me know if you have any questions about anything!
  22. Hello! I am hoping to attend my first event

    Hi Avery! I'm sorry, I don't know how I missed your message. Your mother is going to have to be with you the whole time so she is going to have to be doing whatever you'll be doing for the most part. Talk to Dave Haldenwang (Hivemind on the forums) about making arrangements for your attendance and please read over our Age Requirement policy Definitely also take a look at our Learn to Play section of the Rules wiki http://www.kingdomsofnovitas.net/wiki/pmwiki.php?n=Rules.Learntoplay and our World Book http://www.mvgc.net/larp/worldbook.pdf. Let me know of you have any questions! Welcome!
  23. 2019 Event Dates

    September is a special event. There are no PC slots left. I am unsure if they're still accepting preregistration for NPCs. Check with Caitlin U or Chris (NarenZade). Other than that, not much has changed! Dungeon-Crawl-Announcement final(1).pdf
  24. Hello! New to larp

    Hi Sam! Don't worry about missing an event. We have one most months out of the year. Looks like you have been doing some reading, but I'm going to link some stuff anyway. http://www.kingdomsofnovitas.net/wiki/pmwiki.php?n=Rules.Learntoplay Learn to play! This is a quick guide of how to play the game. http://www.mvgc.net/larp/worldbook.pdf Worldbook! Our game's lore. It's all fun stuff to read. Newbie advice I have is just get into it. Sometimes it's a little awkward to start role playing and you'll want to take it a bit more shyly, but I'll tell you from experience that if you just jump straight in it's a lot more fun. Give it your all and you'll have way more fun.
  25. 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!
