    Hey, I'm Rowan! I'm totally new to LARP, but have been a lifelong fantasy and history nerd and I'm so excited to be joining the game. I have a very tiny little bit of fighting experience so I'm looking forward to learning more, and getting more comfortable with a weapon. I love to sew and craft and create, and the one game I went to has already been filling me with inspiration!

    Hello, I'm Rowan, and I'm so thrilled to be joining Novitas. My dear friend Sage brought me and my partner to November's game and we got addicted. I love to sew, craft, and create, and am a history and fantasy nerd, so this intersects beautifully.

  7. New blood!

    Hey y'all! I'm Travis, I just moved up to Rochester from Dallas TX. Found y'all thru a web search just in time to miss the November event, but I hope to make it in December! I'm a professional game designer (mobile games), and a retired professional Jouster. I've played in LARPS from homebrew to Nero, Alliance, Convention of Thorns, The Night In Question, MET, and Weekend Warrior. Your game has the best laid out ruleset I HAVE EVER SEEN. Good lord its so nice!
  8. I think a fun idea for a rp plot would be to have an NPC bard wander around looking for inspiration for songs. They could ask PCs for stories they could use to base their songs on, and in exchange the bard could give the PC some coin. This would be fun because the bard could literally walk around for an entire shift since theres no limit to stories in this game, but it would also give PCs a chance to reminiscence about past events or to even tell a bit from their backstory. (Bonus points if someone ACTUALLY writes a song)

    Effective immediately: The position of Second Marshal is renamed to Ombudsman. This position remains filled by Dan Meerschaert. Bryan Graham steps down as Plot Marshal, to be replaced by Chris Tesorio. Ryan Green is appointed Logistics Second. Christina Mevec is appointed Props Second. Michael Maneri is appointed M&NPO Second. I'd like to thank Bryan for his long service to KoN. I honestly can't really remember a time when he wasn't in their position, so this is truly long overdue and a well-deserved break for the him, who now gets to simply enjoy playing the game for a bit. Well done Bryan, it's appreciated.

    Hello and merry meets everyone!! My name is Whiskey, well for now till I find a new name. I’ve got several questions, which I’ll list below. I normally do historical reenactment with a local Viking household in the area. But this will be the first time stepping into the realm of larping. I hope this is the right place to put all questions and introductions. I mentioned questions yes? Well here there are…. 1- Are there any list of races you can select as a player? 2- Is there a comprehensive list of how things are done? The website seems a bit all over the place. I’d be happy to sit with someone who can go over it with me. 3- Are players allowed to vend at events?

    The actual intent behind adidas’ EQT (shorthand for Equipment) would be to design a shoe exclusively adidas gazelle online uk to meet modern-day athletes’ requirements as a piece of equipment by offering just the essentials of performance, safety, and comfort, while burning away everything that’s not essential. The adidas EQT collection is one of the brand’s most varied and celebrated franchises, also it continues today with an brand new model: the EQT Gazelle. Don’t let the name trick you - this requires absolutely zero inspiration through the 1966 icon, but through style from the mid-90s towards the early 2000s, to the earlier part of this decade. As well as seemingly, the Three Stripes offers looked outside their own styles for inspiration. Although the adidas nmd online cheap isn’t currently ruling the sneaker scene the way in which it did during the inception, the model has left its mark of all time and remains a solution to adidas’s footwear selection. And with this year marking the actual fifth anniversary of the business, new stylings have been unveilied throughout the past few months.

Who else doesn’t know Hachiko? In case you don’t, we suggest a person watch the 1987 movie “Hachiko” or “Hachi: The Dog’s Tale”. The last 1 was released in 2009 and starred Richard Gere.

  21. I think it would be cool if stronger ghosts could cast Dominate on someone. No medium on shift or available? Ghost casts Dominate on someone. It acts the same as normal Dominate but you just can't see the ghost unless you are a medium.

  23. Codified "Soft shift"

    How do you incentivise players to run off balanced shifts? What are players looking for? *Time with friends *Loot *Plot Why do people run 3/4 *Costuming *Energy *Time with friends What is the target ratio PC/NPC? Where do our GMs find themselves most comfortable? What is comfortably uncomfortable? How do you motivate tired NPCs? How do you balance for people dropping early? Fair weather players? Overlap all shifts A codified soft shift Player incentives for off shifts *Maybe we worry too much about the numbers. Shift balance would not feel so off with 4 or 5 more players. As a long time 1st shift PC I see that 1st shift PCs are where game balance tends to land. As it stands you sign yourself up for a min of 2 shifts that are heavily balanced against your favor. 1st shift low PC* Die 2nd shift high NPC 3rd shift high PC* 4th shift high PC *rest* People complain about players being too powerful. Maybe its we are all too spoiled. I don't mind running any of the shift combos *with a decent balance.* But while I am on this tangent. I want to bring up 1 more thing. We are nerfing players because we don't recognise the negative effects of bad shift balance. There was a ritual fiasco that one player got hammer for. Being an orc shaman in that fight there was nothing my 10 to 15 NPCs were going to do against 30 or so PCs. Rituals or not. (Nerf warranted or not that is how a lot of final fights go) (Still pissed rules keeps nerfing a 10 second dr primal item that kills you immediately after.) Disclaimer, its not my item. I don't know. There are more dedicated players who will figure shift balance out. I would set up specific group plots on off balance shifts as the reason why these players need to play with the gms on shift. I would give an incentive for independent PCs to fill off shifts. (Coin, plot, xp, etc) Or tell everyone to kick rocks and play their assigned shifts because we are not catering to PCs.
  24. Brought to you by...

    Ashlin has a few messages delivered to the Merchants of town late in the evening To my fellow merchants, As of now The Burnheart Caravan will no longer operate/deliver/or trade with Vlean. It is time for the "Inquisition," to stop wasting resources desperately needed in the Freelands. Until those resources are replenished there will be no further negotiations. If I myself, or any Caravan Members are retaliated against I, Ashlin Burnheart, leader of The Burnheart Caravan will personally help with Civen in their efforts in the region. Ashlin Burnheart Leader of the Burnheart Caravan, Channeler of Unlimited Power.
  25. The Burnheart Caravan

    A few days pass. A constant stream of mail returns to Ashlin. The chosen walks to The Covenant's Circle. A meeting point for all members of his organizations. It could have posed a security problem if The Covenant was still active. Ashlin ponders the thought as long as his mind allows. Then he begins to build a summoning circle. First he pushes the fallen leaves around a central point forming a wall of fallen foliage. Circles made out of goblin iron are the best traps for fae. This summoning was not a trap. No need to waste the coin on the iron. Ashlin meticulously works on his circle. There would be no time in the days to come. A plump old man, adorned with gold and gems watches his master work. Silence, it stretches out over the next hour like a yawning eternity. "Sir, you have been obsessing with your project for almost 3 hours. Another half a dozen merchants have arrived. They stand on the northern end of the circle. "Oh has it been that long?" Ashlin plops himself in the middle of the clearing. A small wall surrounding him. A seven pointed star surrounds him. One point for each of the mortal magics of the world. A second circle lies affixed to the top the Septon star. Representing the mortal spark, the life energy that binds so many of us together. This is where Ashlin would stand as he invited his "Guest." "Its good to see you all made it in a timely manner. Hopefully the leylines were not too terrible to travel." Ash only lets a split second pass before continuing. "We have business to attend to."
  26. The Burnheart Caravan

    The day after The Harvest Fest Ashlin Burnheart sends a large volume of letters to The Caravan. One such message reads as follows. "Caravan Member, Due to unforseen circumstances there will be an emergency meeting. Please report in at the predetermined location in the Freelands." Ashlin curses a few times handing a Courier the letters.
