2015 February Feast Pre-Registration!

Recommended Posts

tl;dr: Feb Feast is on February 21, 2015. PayPal $41 to paypal@mvgc.net to preregister, space is limited to 70 people, first come first served, et cetera.

 

********************************************

For the literate amongst you...

 

The 2014 season Kingdoms of Novitas February Feast will be held on Saturday, February 21nd at Vanderkamp. There will be a single 5-hour game shift, to run from noon to 5 PM, followed by dinner, the fundraiser auction, some game announcements, and a PAAAAARTAAAAY.

 

Dinner will be provided on Saturday night by Vanderkamp in the dining hall. You're on your own for the rest of the meals. Dinner this year will NOT be in-character.

 

After dinner, we will retire to Frank Lodge for the usual stuff: a fundraiser auction, a short State of the Game address, and drinking for 21-and-over folks. 12 Noon on Sunday is GTFO.

 

Due to start time issues we had in past years, we have rented Resurrection Lodge for two nights, enabling our noon game-on start time. If you are traveling from farther than about three hours away, that is, you don't live in Central New York, you are welcome to drive out Friday night and stay in Resurrection lodge for both nights. The rule of thumb for using Resurrection Lodge on Friday night is this: ask yourself if you'd have to leave your house earlier than 8 AM to make the noon start time for the game shift. If you would, then feel free to come on Friday night and crash in Resurrection Lodge. Resurrection Lodge sleeps 16 people. Everyone else is invited to be on-site Saturday morning and fill up any remaining beds in Resurrection as well as Frank and Oscar Lodges. Logistics will run out of Fellowship Hall. The downstairs area of Oscar Lodge will be in-game as a common room, so Oscar residents please keep your shite picked up in there. After the feast, Oscar lodge is designated as the quieter board/video gaming and hanging out lodge, while Frank Lodge is designated as the there-will-be-loud-music-and-dancing-and-drunkenness-and-people-up-all-night lodge.

 

So, the itinerary looks like so:

****************************

 

Cost for this event is $41 per person.

 

You can send preregistration payments to paypal@mvgc.net.

 

When you pre-register, make sure to include the real names of everyone you're paying for, and what nights you're staying over, if any, if you are PCing or NPCing, what PC party you're in if you're PCing

 

You can also pay a Marshal, any Marshal, in person with cash. If you do this, the price is $40. Marshals, please let me know who you receive money from, and the above registration information, to include the date they gave you the money.

 

If you are planning on daytripping and leaving before dinner, or if the price for this event is an issue for you, please contact me.

 

If you are planning on PCing, REGISTER EARLY. We are only allowing for about 20 PC slots.

 

PREREGISTRATION BEGINS NOW AND ENDS AT MIDNIGHT, SUNDAY FEBRUARY 15th.

 

There are 70 beds available, and a few spots on the couches and cots. I'll do my best to figure out who is daytripping, etc. so that we can try and find a bed for everyone who wants to stay the night. 70 is not the cap for the event, it's the cap for people sleeping there Saturday night (and even then we have a little wiggle room. If we go massively over this number, we will rent another building, but this needs to be done sooner rather than later, so please PREREGISTER EARLY!

 

I'll keep an updated attendance list here. DO NOT pester me to see if I got your pre-registration until February 16th. Inquiries will be ignored. Repeated inquiries will be junkpunched.

 

***************************

 

VENDORS

 

If anyone knows anyone who would be interested (or any of you are) please let me know. Real actual vendors can get comped for a bunk and dinner (and I'll make them a drink too).

 

Vendor list thus far:

 

BadAss Garb

LARP Essentials

 

***************************

 

OK, now to demonstrate that I am in fact a reasonable human being, I will answer your grammatically-correct questions regarding this event below.

I AM ALREADY GETTING PREREGISTRATIONS THAT ARE MISSING INFORMATION. IF YOU DO NOT SEND IN ALL THE REQUIRED INFORMATION WITH YOUR PREREGISTRATION, YOUR PREREGISTRATION DATE WILL REFLECT THE DAY YOU FINALLY GET ME ALL THE REQUIRED INFORMATION, NOT THE DATE YOU PAID.

 

I'M LOOKING AT YOU DONALD TYSON.

Important note from Marketing and Player Outreach: As Febfeast is one of our special events, the "Your first game is free" promotion for newbies is NOT valid. The next event where that offer applies is April 3, 4, and 5th. Thank you :)

I'm not pretending to know what sordid shit people are getting up to in their personal lives here, I'm just listing folks that registered together and seem like a couple. If you're not I don't care, I'm just trying to get the maximum people into beds.

Chris Blake and I pre-regged together pretty early and are engaged, would love to be added to the bigger bed list since we're staying two days, but if not whatevs we'll survive.

 

 

 

I am apparently going to be GM'ing for the event.

 

I would like to see more PCs, we have close to a 1pc-3npc ratio at the moment and we know that a good portion of PCs like to stay inside and keep warm especially with how bitter cold it's going to be.

 

Remember, if you PC you can sort of dictate how often you're out in the cold. If you're NPC'ing... you get to do my bidding. ^_~

 

10 more PCs would be lovely. Even more than that is FINE.

 

 

 

Look forward to seeing everyone.

I am the GM that day.

I have decided additional PC slots can be offered.

I want every single person on that list approved to PC.

If someone is not on this list and still wants to PC, post about it.

5 slots

1. You and Chris, yes. I missed that one, sorry.

 

2. Be aware that allowing more PCs is going to turn this into, essentially, an all-PC shift with the occasional monster. The guideline we shoot for when balancing shifts is twice as many NPCs as PCs. While there are going to be about 80 people at Feb Feast, you are not going to have that many NPCs available. Many of those people either aren't KoN players and are coming with their significant others, are vendors, will be tied up with logistics or props, or simply don't like playing in the snow. Giving you 20 PC slots will leave you with about 40 actual NPCs, based on what we've seen in past years.

 

Go ahead and let more people PC, but this is going to be an all-PC shift without any of the protections and safeguards of the Harvest Festival all-PC shift (and, no, we're not going to put those in place now), so there's the very real potential for a bloodbath.

 

Yes, this is the voice of experience speaking. I STRONGLY suggest you leave it alone at 20 PCs.

Mkay. 5 more slots then instead of 10. I really don't want a 1-3 pc/npc ratio considering how often I've seen "I'm going to PC so I don't have to go out into the cold and do anything"

There's never 40 NPCs at Feb... I can name about 5-6 people on that list already, that will be doing odds and ends for Staff instead of PCing. Me being one of them. You'll easily be at an even ratio if not PC heavy by the end.

Don't see the point in offering to allow the slots to be open if taking up said offer is going to get backlash.

Going to go with the 5 slots.
