  3. Introducing DThrash

    Hello all! I am extremely new to LARPing. I did reenact as a child for revolutionary war encampments with my family so the concept is not entirely foreign. I have always been a huge fan of the fantasy genre, and I am a D&D player. The last couple of years I have slowly been entertaining the idea of trying out LARPing. I am pleasantly surprised to find such an avid organization literally in my backyard! I would very much like to try this out if you all would have me. I very much like the idea of NPCing first!

  8. Ling here.

    Hey Dustan, the long ears was actually the cause of a massive joke. My character was the leader of the Wolf Clan, a mercenary organization that accepted anyone who could pass it's trials and be blessed by an Archfey, Frekir the Eternal Wolf. Her main tenets were unity, strength, and swearing yourself to service against the ancient Blight that consumed worlds and threatened ours. As such, Ling didn't refer to himself as an elf but rather as a Wolf. This frustrated some of the other players who got me a racial change potion (elf) and spiked my drink toward the end of event. Between events I got the longer ears and was like, "yeah, don't feel much different..." I think I still have my short ears in my pouch, if not I will order some sometime. I am sad I wasn't able to meet any of you this year with the COVID and such, and next year I have a deployment with the National Guard here in Vermont so it might be a while. Just wanted to provide some sort of update, I didn't intend on ghosting the game. Lol.

  11. Dates for 2021

    Plot Post: After much discussion with the Marshals, Plot has decided that when we restart in February (fingers crossed) Novitas will still be in the year 1599. For everyone making blogs during this downtime, please take this into account
  12. I'm not new but my profile is.

    Yeah, it's been fun getting back into it. Incidentally, I like how apparently the only picture of you in Vincent's garb is from when you performed a wedding. Lol
  13. I'm not new but my profile is.

    hello from the shadows looking forward to reading more story stuff of Richard the bard
  14. Pants?

    Wow. Sorry I did not see this sooner. As long as the top is covered and stays covered they will be perfectly fine. In fact, my main pair of wool pants were thick dress pants that were very similar before modifications. I removed the buttons and the belt loops and replaced with a draw string on mine.
  15. I'm not new but my profile is.

    Yeah, definitely. It was a good time. I've been considering writing new stuff for Richard, since he didn't quite die like everyone thought. Basically, where hes been the last four years and what hes been up to.
  16. I'm not new but my profile is.

    I just reread like 100 Ellenor stories a few months ago. It's been two years for me too. As I read, I couldn't help grinning. Man, we had fun.
  17. I'm not new but my profile is.

    Yep, it's me. I guess I would be the only "Emerald Bard". It would be weird if there were another. Lol. I'll have to check it out. I think I have an Instagram, I just never use it. I've been reading a bunch of the blogs lately, so that's been fun. Haven't had a chance to look at stuff on here in...well...nearly 2 years.
  18. I'm not new but my profile is.

    Hi Tom, since I assume that's who this is! If you or someone you know has Instagram, you can follow this link to Lou L Britt's IG TV post, where Richard the Bard gets a feature! https://instagram.com/loulbritt?igshid=1gtb9lwvuibr5 In the video, I was reading a condensed version of Chapter 3 of Ellenor's Letters (titled: Song) where Ellenor meets Richard the Bard. I'm the second reader in the 9/10/2020 edition of the "Just a Spell" series on Lou L Britt's Instagram -various authors reading for five minutes each from their works. I was so honored to be included! The Kingdoms of Novitas website got a shout out several times. (M&PO work continues, even during the plague! ;) )
  19. Hey all I’m completely new to LARP but interested

    Hello! Welcome. I'm Maggie, Marketing and Player Outreach Marshal. We're currently in a bit of a hiatus due to the pandemic. I recommend joining us on Facebook for updates on our online events. However! In the meantime, we've got a LOT of reading material! I can't recommend enough the Learn to Play section of our Rules Wiki www.kingdomsofnovitas.net/wiki/pmwiki.php?n=Rules.Learntoplay it won't help right away, but when we resume in the new year, it'll be super helpful. It's got lots of links to other sections of the rules you might be curious about. Another solid read is our World Book. Our World Book is a big ol' book that breaks down our world's lore. Plenty of time to dive in and discover everything there is to know! http://www.mvgc.net/larp/worldbook.pdf Let me know if you have any questions in the mean time. I know it'll be a bit before we all resume in person, but we're still gathering monthly online.
  20. I'm not new but my profile is.

    Hey, just wanted to let people know I have a new profile, since i can't remember how to log into my old one.
  21. Hello all I’m a 40 year old guy who is interested in LARP and I am wanting to do something with it but have zero experience or knowledge about it and as such I am wanting to make friends and learn about the community so howdy and hope to be able to join in with everyone soon
  22. Pants?

    Hi Toia, I'm not the Props marshal and I have no say, but Dustan the Props and Atmosphere marshal will chime in here to weigh in. I personally think you're on the right track, because they're brown, understated, and no obvious signs of modernity like cargo pockets. But! don't take my word for it, I'd wait for Dustan to give you the thumbs-up.
  23. Pants?

    Hello! I’m currently using the time until my first event to get some clothing for what will hopefully be a PC. I have a pair of pants that I would like to use and I wanted to make sure they’d be acceptable to use or if they’re considered too modern. (I’ve attached them below) If they are too modern, are there any adjustments I can make so that they’d be acceptable? Thanks in advance!
