  1. 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!
  2. 2020 Event Dates

    All of our events are!
  3. 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.

  4. 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!
  5. 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!
  6. 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!
  7. 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!
  8. 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!
  9. Hello! I am hoping to attend my first event

    That's okay. We will definitely still be here! See you then!
  10. 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!
  11. 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!
  12. 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
  13. 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.
  14. 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!
  15. 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!
  16. 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!
  17. 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.
  19. Hello Everybody!

    Super wonderful to hear! See you in August!
  20. 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!
  21. 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!
  22. New player

    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!
  23. 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!
  24. 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.
  25. Our new wiki has a wonderful Learn to Play section! Here's the link: http://www.kingdomsofnovitas.net/wiki/pmwiki.php?n=Rules.Learntoplay Kingdoms of Novitas has a Facebook page and Player Discussion group. You're welcome to find us there too! Did you know we have blogs? Many of our players write blogs detailing the lives of their PCs and more. Check them out here: http://www.kingdomsofnovitas.net/forums/index.php?/blogs/ We have a YouTube channel with lots of videos from our events! https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCri3OoxKBhpeeTg9rFw9aaw
