  1. MVGC / KoN Waiver

    NEW WAIVERS NEEDED FOR AUGUST EVENT!! -------------------------- Up front: you will not be allowed to sign in at the August event unless you have electronically submitted a new waiver. You will not be afforded an opportunity to do so on-site - do it before you go. New waiver is here: https://www.kingdomsofnovitas.net/MVGC_KON_Release_Form... This is a fillable PDF. You probably will not be able to fill it out in your browser - it needs to be saved, and opened and filled out in Adobe Acrobat Reader (desktop or mobile) or a similar PDF program, and be signed. You may need to set up a digital signature. KoN staff will not provide technical support to do this, so figure out which one of your friends can help you and ask them, or watch a video on how to do it. It's not complicated nor difficult. When it is done, it needs to be emailed to konwaivers@gmail.com This only needs to be done once, not for every event, or even every year. Thank you for your cooperation - I can hardly wait for August!
  2. 2020 Event Dates

    Feb 7-8-9 April 10-11-12 Cancelled May 1-2-3 Cancelled June 5-6-7 Cancelled July 11th - Delta Lake State Park Cancelled August 7-8-9 Cancelled September 4-5-6 Cancelled October 9-10-11 Cancelled November 6-7-8 Cancelled December 4-5-6 Cancelled We are going to skip the January and March events this year. They are VERY sparsely attended )50 players or less) and we lose money on those events, so we're going to skip them this year and see how it goes. This was the regular practice back in the Vanderkamp days. February will still be the Founder's Feast - shifts 1 and 2 will be normal shifts, and 3-4 will be an in-character feast and Chinese auction. NEW ONLINE EVENT DATES August 8th September 6th November 7th December 5th
  3. Logistics Changes

    Please note that you MUST send proof of prereg to Ryan. I am NOT going to forward them on, that's just a pain in my ass and I don't have time for it.

  5. This is really unlikely to ever happen. Priority is always going to be given to groups wanting them year-round.
  6. Keyblades? Can we use them?

    Same issue as we'd have with you using a weapon that's iconic from another game or fantasy world. It belongs there, not here.
  7. Keyblades? Can we use them?

  8. Latex Weapon Vendors

    Definitely not, sorry. That doesn't meet our aesthetic requirements. Generally, any cloth covered ot tape covered weapon will fail for use as a PC.
  9. John, Have you looked here: https://www.calimacil.com/search?type=product&q=refurbished Remember those prices are in CAD so your price is about 25% cheaper.
  10. Gimme a price for all three weapons.
  11. Balancing A Calimacil Sword

    About the only thing you're going to be able to do is to cut the foam off, add steel barstock with hockey tape, and build up a new handle with hot glue, shoegoo, etc. and wrap it in leather. Or grow stronger. Only other option might be to try some lead tape for changing the balance of golf clubs: https://www.amazon.com/Brampton-Lead-Tape-Golf-Clubs/dp/B005CJL2M4 That's gonna make your hilt fatter, though, and you'll need to wrap it in leather or something afterwards.
  12. Wooden Armor

    Definitely not.

  14. MVGC Inc. / Kingdoms of Novitas LARP Policy update: Engaging in sexual activity inside public structures is strictly forbidden. A public structure is any building rented by the organization for communal use, to include lean-tos, A-frames, cabins, lodges, and pavilions. When you engage in this behavior in public, you are making some other players deeply uncomfortable. It is not right that they should feel it necessary to leave a public space because of your behavior. No, constructing a blanket fort does not make where you are private. No, you may not assume - or even ask - if everyone present is okay with it and carry on. Just don't. Please restrict your intimate relations with others to your own tents, or simply do not engage in this level of intimacy at KoN events.
  15. 2018 Junebilee FF Auction Items

    PSA: Please be aware that we have not procured props for most of these items. It took longer than expected to find a day and time when the four of us who figure these out could all meet up for two hours. I will work directly with the winners to get them props that are within our budget and aesthetically pleasing for them. I'd like to do that in the week immediately after Junebilee, so if you win something, do some shopping, look for something you like, and send me some links. If you're stuck, I can probably give you some suggestions or ideas where to look. Additionally, a bunch of these things I'll likely just make for youse myself (the books, the jewelry, the bracers, basically anything I can produce in my shop I'm happy to do so for you) so that's another option if you'd prefer. I'm pretty okay at the craftings. I'll remind everyone of this right before the auction.
