  1. June Preproduction

    NOTICE: Because we have canceled the April and May events, Preproduction has been extended to May 24th. Alchemists, please remember to bring your lab pieces to sign-in, regardless if you are producing.
  2. Good Afternoon Novitas! P&A, Rules, and Logistics will be checking all weapons for safety and Alchemy Items (Mirror of Sophistry, Hermetic Rod, etc.) for compliance during Sign-In over the next few months. I understand this is inconvenient for those who have to set up their labs and/or who have a menagerie of weapons at their disposal. Please keep in mind it has been several years since we've done a prop check like this, and will likely be several more years before we have to do it again. Please know I speak for both Rules and Logistics when I say we appreciate your cooperation during this time. Should you have any questions, comments, or concerns regarding this, I will gladly answer them below.
  3. June Preproduction

    Correct! The first time you use your production points, it is free. So if you have 20 production and the required alchemy lab pieces (Mirror of Sophistry) then you are golden! For scribe scroll, you cannot change the language of the scroll. This is why the use of scrolls requires the skill Read Magic rather than one of the language skills.
  4. Hello Novitas! As promised at Founder's Feast, here are the Logistics changes for 2020: Shift Caps: As discussed in the previous Logistics Announcement, we attempted to try something new to balance PCs and NPCs: Shift Caps. After discussing this change with other Staff, Shift Caps will become the new normal. Additionally, we will be making one change to Shift Caps; moving forward, Groups can become divided if caps are met. This means the best way to ensure your group stays together is to either arrive to sign in eary and together, or preregister. Preproduction: As a reminder, preproduction closes approximately 2 weeks before event. Please check the production section of the forums for these postings, as these are the offical means of submitting Preproduction. ____ I appreciate your patience in dealing with these changes. They are always made in the best interest of all players. Should you ever have any questions, comments, concerns, or suggestions for us, please reach out to a Marshal and they will make sure your voice is heard. Thank you, Ryan Staring
  5. June Preproduction

    Hello Novitas! I've spoken with several people about what happens to your production given that we are missing two full events. We will be allowing people to produce for each month that will be missed if they pay the additional $30 per event. So if you pay $90 in June ($30 for April, $30 for May, and $30 for June) you will have 3 months worth of Production. These orders are explicitly separate from one another (if you have 10 craft points, you can't combine April and May production to have a 20 pt item). This all MUST be done using the preproduction system on the forums (If you message me your order on FB, it will be disregarded. I WILL however answer questions through any medium). Format Because this is different than the norm, I'd like you all to follow the following formatting: Player Name Character Month you are producing for Things you are making Total owed coin So, a finished pro-production list might look like: - - - Player Name: Ryan Staring Character: Orthelian Rhossgolossiam uin Tathar April Production: 5 scrolls of Command Nature. Custom incant "By the power of the Elemental I cast Command Nature!" Owe 20 coin Golden Ring with a tree on it - Casts Dissipate 1/gd. Owe 40 coin. May Production: 4 vials of acid. Owe 12 coin 8 potions of heal body. Owe 8 coin. Bastion of Purify Spirit. Owe 40 coin. Non-Marshal Silver Dagger. Owe 80 coin. Player Name: Ryan Staring Character: Odric Velrin June Production: 4 scrolls of Revive. Custom incant "May my hand forget it's skill, I cast Revive!" Owe 20 coin. Total owed: 220 coin - - - Please submit to pre-produce the following: Crafting You will be receiving your numbers at event so if you are creating numbered items, post here or PM me. Prop Change If you are changing props using the Tinkering skill, please post the number of the item, what slot it is (when applicable), and what the new prop is. This helps us update the description on the database. If the previous prop was owned by Novitas, you will turn in the prop at sign-in. Personalized Incants You have the opportunity to personalize your scroll incants. To do this, post or PM me during the pre-production window and they will be printed for you. Character Retirement As always, if you are retiring a character you need to contact us ahead of time to arrange the retirement process. Seriously, you need to do this. If you know you are retiring at this event, PM me immediately! Please submit all pre-production requests by Sunday, May 24th at 11:59PM. ONE MORE THING! if you had already submitted your production and don't specify which month it is for, it will be assumed you are doing it for the most recent month. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to PM me here or on Facebook. Thank you! Ryan Staring

  7. Founder's Feast 2020 Items! Just as in previous years, we auction items off in order to fund our Larp and make it bigger and better.

  11. Logistics Changes

    Good Afternoon Novitas! I hope everyone had a great event. With the conclusion of the Harvest Fest, I wanted to make a few announcements regarding upcoming changes. PRODUCTION: Effective immediately, preproduction will be open until 2 weeks after each event. Once this window closes, players will have to wait until the following event to produce (that means if you don't use your production, you lose it!). Players can submit thier production here: http://www.kingdomsofnovitas.net/forums/index.php?/topic/11954-november-preproduction/ SHIFT BALANCE: Starting November event, we will attempt shift caps. The way this will work is once sign-in opens, Logs will allow players to select whatever shifts they want. However once a shift reaches an arbitrary number, that shift will close, barring additional PCs from populating that shift. The goal is to give players the freedom to play when they want, while maintaining a healthy ratio of PCs and NPCs. ------ Q: I live 4 hours away. Does that mean I'm stuck with whatever is left? A: No. You can preregister for game by sending your money to: PayPal@mvgc.net Include your name, what event you are paying for, and when you plan to PC. Please send a screenshot of the receipt to Logistics@mvgc.net so I can add you to the shift and mark you as paid for the event. If the shift is already filled, I'll tell you what is available. ------ I will answer any questions, comments, or concerns below.
