  1. Wing-capes? Yay or Nay?

    The issue is, these are not capes, these are wings. KoN is a fantasy game with fantasy creatures. There is no real world way of telling the difference between a guy wearing a "cape," and our winged creatures when the prop used is very similar. Therefor we do not allow something like this that can be confused with a creature. If you want a fancy cape that's fine. But, my first thought can not be "Those are wings."
  2. Keyblades? Can we use them?

    "Original" is not the correct word. What I mean, there is nothing original about a calimacil bellator, however, it is a good sword that lots of players own. You can not use a recognizable weapon from any sort of fan fiction or anything for that matter. Also, your weapon has to LOOK like a weapon.
  3. Wing-capes? Yay or Nay?

    No this is not.
  4. Forged Foam Weapons and colored blades

    Hello Matt, I am Dustan The Props and atmosphere Marshal. I looked at the 3 colored blades on your other post. The red and blue ones coloring would be acceptable as your PC under the conditions that someone brought them into game as magic items via our crafting system. This requires in-game coin and Crafting skills. If you are interested in knowing more here's a link to the weapon crafting rules. While I am Linking that, here is the link to our rules wiki. We do not have weapon damage that requires purple. That said, a purple blade would be not be acceptable because of that reason. Forged foam generally makes decent equipment that will pass our safety standards. However, only recently have they started making non-boffer style weapons, and can not say for sure they will pass a safety check.
  5. Is bringing this book acceptable?

    P&A Marshall here. Aesthetically speaking, it's fine.
  6. Quils and their acceptable-ness

    That is fine yes
  7. The first sword should be fine. I say "Should" because it still (as any weapon does) needs to be checked for safety by our rules team. The second weapon looks like a "Heros Edge" Brand weapon, they do not meet safety requirements.
  8. My first homemade boffer and questions

    John I understand your frustration. I think part of the problem your having is the term boffer is generally used for the more cloth covered weapons you are seeing. At KoN we have a very high aesthetic value and do not allow those. A general rule of thumb is if it does does not appear to look like a real weapon, it will fly. On what MK said Re Dag/boffer style weapons for NPC. We are moving away from this being permissible and I highly advise against it.
  9. Medieval utility belt

    Those are both fine
  10. My first homemade boffer and questions

    Unfortunately, I can not link you to a tutorial. What I will suggest is you search for the group on Facebook "plastidip artists" the method many of them use will be acceptable.
  11. My first homemade boffer and questions

    Honestly, unless you have all the materials already, making a weapon does not come out much cheaper than buying a cheaper one. When you get into making a larger amount the cost per weapon drops. I highly suggest just saving and buying a cheaper weapon from a reputable manufacturer. Or seeing if anyone wants to sell a used weapon.
  12. My first homemade boffer and questions

    Hello, I'm Dustan, the Props and Atmosphere Marshal. The video will not make a legal weapon, aesthetically speaking, in our game. The link you provided, aesthetically they are just fine. Safety wise, it depends on the manufacturer of the weapon. I suggest looking for similar weapons from a store that would not have to ship over seas. Also, if you are planning to NPC your first event, which is generally what we recommend as it allows you to get a handle on the rules and familiarize yourself with the setting before committing to a character concept, then do not worry about a weapon. We have weapons to use for NPC purposes.
  13. That is the standard rate yes. However, this is the only month we take open donations.
  14. It's October 1st. Halloween stuff is in stores in full force. Every year (November event) we take OPEN DONATIONS FOR XP on props that would be good for game. Typically, any masks we ask that you purchase multiple of the same creature. This year, I have added a scavenger hunt of sorts; a list of things we are in need of. Take advantage of sales, especially immediately following Halloween. To reiterate: HALLOWEEN DONATIONS ARE IN NOVEMBER. If you score stuff early, msg me so I can update the list. Also, If you are unsure of something, hit me up on Facebook, I check my phone often. 1: 2 of a Humanoid/Ogrish mask for Ettin. 2: Additional Skaven masks 3: Additional Troll masks 4: Lizard/Reptile masks (I need 4-6 of the SAME creature) 5: Undead Masks (Zombies/Ghouls etc) Preferably whole head and/or well fitting 6. Prosthetic Elf Ears 7. Prosthetic Monster parts (For Snow Goblins) 8. Fairy Wings (Adult Size Only) 9. Small necromancy component props 10. Plastic chains 11. Bloody latex body parts Update 1: we probably do NOT need werewolves or skeletons.
  15. New to Larp ...and upstate NY

    I'm going to add to this. Simple pants that are cheap and last a long time are scrubs. I have several black pairs that still see NPC use from when I first started. Just remove any visible pockets with a seam ripper. Get ones a little large and they go over warmer pants for winter. Tops - ceilidh mentioned under armor or similar. I just want to add, your permit lted to wear whatever modern things you want, especially in winter, to keep warm. However, and this is VERY important, it CAN NOT be visible. Even just a neck line. It is for that reason I highly recommend a hood with a good mantle. Google skjoldehamn hood. There's a few good patterns. Again, as I said in my other post to you, I am happy to discuss anything related to this. If you want help with fabric choices, patterns, anything garb related, let me know.
