  1. Game Donations

    Reserving this spot for P&A wishlist when I get it together.
  2. Materials Allowed/Disallowed

    X'Nor, If you have fabric that you have any question on, it's probably a no go. That said, if you find something that you like and want a confirmation before you purchase it, you are welcome to contact me here on the forums or Facebook.
  3. Hello Ricky, I am Dustan, Props and Atmosphere Second. From your pictures everything looks good. My only concerns are the coins/metal discs? and the pink gem? Mostly for reason of being confused with gems that hold value in our game.
  4. Kingdoms of Novitas is loved, and known by many, for many reasons. One reason that draws many players is our standards for upholding aesthetics. Over the last year our game has seen much change. Because of that we have been laxer on these aesthetic standards. However, the immersive element of our game is slipping. Please read and adjust accordingly. If you have any questions or concerns please contact myself and I will do my best to assist you. Props and Atmosphere 2nd – Dustan W. Official garb policy. Please read this link, and make sure are following these rules both as a PC and NPC Additional notes of things we, your P&A team, are seeing lately. o Garb. - T- shirts/turtlenecks/ ”Underarmor” as undershirts are not to be visible (this includes neckline, and sleeves. This does not change during NPC shifts. - Logos of any clothing wear can not be visible. o Boots. - Boot laces and modern tops of boots need to be covered. Period boots can be found at reasonable prices, and covering boots can be even cheaper - Use the forum search feature for boots to locate links others have used. - Other short term options include spats, gaiters, winningas over laces/boot tops, or using burlap to cover boots. o Flashlights - Are disruptive to immersion, and thus are not permitted during game hours. The only exception is a “light tube”, an in game producible item. Lighting is encouraged for every player at night, but it needs to remain period, cannot be overly bright, and cannot project light forward. o Tents - Historically speaking, we have not allowed tents of any fabric, or design, that is not period/approved fantasy. This means it should be made from canvas, cotton, wool, or linen. Nylon tents have never been allowed. This rule is still in effect, however, we have decided that modern materials may be permitted on a case by case basis. A non-period tent should not be set up without prior contacting P&A staff for approval. o Sleeping areas - Sleeping bags need to be covered as do totes, and/or anything else non-period. This can be by say a wool blanket, a cheap sheet, a canvas drop cloth, or anything of that nature. OOG area is under your bunk. However, try to hide/cover anything modern here as well. o Drinks/food wrappers - Keep them out of sight in your encampment and elsewhere. Better yet, put contents in a period bottle. Carrying around something like a Gatorade bottle is not permitted. o Game start time - Game begins at 8pm on Friday. Please make sure beginning at that time all garb rules, lighting rules, and so forth are being followed. Additionally, please have any vehicle out of game areas before then. - If you can not be ready to go by 8pm, at minimum, unload your car into your sleeping area, do your best to cover anything modern, move your car out of game areas, and finally get ready. It should be noted that if you are unable to be completely ready to go by 8pm than shift 1 should be one of your PC shifts. It is not fair to other players to short your NPC shift because you are unable to make it on time. - If shift 1 is a PC shift, all of the above should be done BEFORE you start to dress for character/apply makeup, etc. o Cold Weather - The colder months are upon us. Cold weather does not affect our garb standards. Please dress warm, safety is paramount. However, anything modern, once again, needs to be covered. In addition to this post I would like to link a post from our former Props Marshal, MK. Garb standards at KoN
  5. Drake Inquiries

    Hello. I'm Dustan from props and atmosphere. 1) I am going to copy and paste a comment from Dave H. regarding drake costuming rules There is nothing written about hair, and I have seen pictures of drakes with hair, so you should be fine there. 2) The drakes I have seen in game have very commonly wore robes. Searching the forums for past pictures might help with this. I apologize I do not have the time at the moment or I would help find some pictures. 3) The worldbook has more information on the colors. I suggest you take a look there. To answer your question directly no you are not bound to those 4. http://www.mvgc.net/larp/worldbook.pdf
  6. hello everyone, Nice to meet you

    Glad your enthusiastic to contribute. As we decided what the coming season is going to need we will come up with projects. Having a wide variety could prove useful.
  7. Pictures of your Garb & Gear!

    Those look great, looking forward to seeing them applied
  8. hello everyone, Nice to meet you

    Props and Atmosphere second here. I live in Maine so i'm right around the corner from you practically. What kind of crafting do you do leather, sewing, foamsmithing, etc.
  9. Boots and Exp?

    yes thats fine
  10. Boots and Exp?

    Amanda, yes you can replace your boots for xp
  11. Boots and Exp?

    Just one pair I stand corrected. I have been informed that we in fact give xp for all boots. This does not mean someone can continuously buy boots and get xp, however.
  12. Utillity kilts yeah or nope?

    Based on what you have said above, it sounds like you want less of a kilt with an eye-catching pattern, and more of a solid color or plain in appearance. My suggestion is to look through the sport kilt link above and find something very basic. Such as this one,or something like this. To give more of a utilitarian look to your character add a leather belt with some useful pouches such as a tool pouch. Another option would be to add a decent satchel. When it comes to selecting a weapon an ax ring and an ax designed is for work instead of fighting would be fitting as well.
  13. Utillity kilts yeah or nope?

    Here's a link to 1.10 Garb. I suggest giving that a read. The rules I will post below are from that page. The problem(s) with basically any utility kilt are one, or more, of the following Cargo pockets on pants Visible zippers (Zippers on the insides of boots are acceptable if not obvious) Exposed modern webbing or straps The largest issue with utility kilts are Clothing of obviously modern cut or materials That said, I understand the look your going for. I will do some brainstorming and send you a PM. Perhaps together we can come up with something that both meets your vision and KoN rule requirements.
  14. Just to add to above posts about lighting Flameless candles such as these, or what Jenica posted https://www.amazon.com/Lighted-Flickering-Votive-Flameless-Candles/dp/B005LW36U8/ref=sr_1_5?ie=UTF8&qid=1473459904&sr=8-5&keywords=flameless+candle Combined with a candle holder, such as this would be a great option https://www.amazon.com/Gifts-Decor-Winter-Hanging-Lantern/dp/B004TUA5J8/ref=pd_sim_201_3?ie=UTF8&psc=1&refRID=CRF0PG3B1JHJQTYMNVZN
