  3. More in-game buildings/areas

    So (speaking only for myself)... I want the exact opposite of this for a couple of reasons. Yes it would be great for immersion. However, every location an NPC has to go to find PC's to hook for a plot is more time that NPC is in play JUST WALKING and not interacting. Its variable how much that walking tires out the npc in question, some players have no issue with extra walking, some walk 5 feet and then need to sit forever before they go out again (and often with those players lets be real walking isn't the issue). But regardless of how it impacts that hook, the people sitting in a field somewhere as monsters are just sitting... waiting. We want the hook npc to be able to find PC's quickly and relatively efficiently so we can get those npcs back again, resulting in more plots going out the door. I personally hate having two inns. My argument is that we want one single location where hooks go to find adventurers, and if adventurers want to get hooked they go to that location. The helix makes that much harder, so 2 inns it is. Targeted plots, color plots, things where npcs wander about to interact with players are a different story, and more locations don't hurt. However then we enter into another issue with the site. The more permanent PC locations we have, the fewer locations GM's have to send plots that can be "different". It makes me sad the former slap and tickle has been absorbed by PC groups immediately, it would be nice to have a single building out there where some stories can be told that want something other than a lean to. Having said all that, I mean these could very well be cool locations. Adding more to the bazaar would certainly be great for making it more immersive. There's nothing to stop you from building these things.
  4. Production points rules

    You do not need to pay additional coin to use the extra production points, the 3c per point covers the cost of production. So in your example you would pay 36 extra coin for that extra 12 production points (for a grand total of 44 coin with the 8 points of your own being used). Good question!
  5. With the character sheet app we are currently aware of a bug that seems to only appear when using an Apple browser on Apple phones (specifically when trying to make language and ritual choices for scholar). If you encounter this problem (where you can't select languages/ rituals with scholar) try using a different device or a different browser.
  6. The online character sheet app is ready for use*! You can find it here: http://charactersheetapp.kingdomsofnovitas.net/#/ *If your character has learned rare languages through plot but not through Scholar it does not presently record that, you'll need to add that manually to a printed copy, this will be fixed in a future update. Checking your total XP online Any player can use a character ID number to check the current TOTAL xp of their characters using this look up sheet: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1F2mM0R_ZhMfHKDIs7GmM9J4ZQCDA_1hxl5jH0sOw1zE/edit#gid=927735354 It's a temporary solution so that players can access that information now. Hopefully it will eventually be something we can integrate into the app, but that's another big step for later. Character ID Numbers Every character has an ID number. Those of you who were at the April 2022 game had it written onto your character sheets. If you missed the event or lost the number, you can contact Liska or I and we can message the numbers to you for any of your characters. Any time a staff member assigns experience it will instantly be visible in that total. For example all players have been assigned experience for NPCing during the April 2022 event (which was 2 days ago as of this post) already. How does this affect sign in? If you have an online character sheet you printed from home you will be able to have your character sheet approved the FAST way. You'll get to show your sheet to the person checking sheets, and they will verify that your total xp matches the total xp we have for that character. That's it. Sheet successfully checked. No math needed (the app does that for you). Anyone who does not have an online sheet will still be able to check-in the previous way, having xp written onto your sheet so that you know how much you have. XP Banks Many players choose to save xp until they decide they want it or until they create a new character. In the past the game has rolled that experience over month after month building a steadily larger sum until you finally take the xp. Starting this month every player has a character in our records that is named "XP Bank". Any experience you don't take will get assigned to that character. You can message Liska or I at any time and we can take the XP from your bank and assign it to another character. You can check your xp bank like any other character by changing the last digit of your character's ID number to "9". Any player who didn't attend the April 2022 event had all experience that was waiting for them automatically assigned to their XP bank. Further experience earned for players will continue to go to their XP bank until they notify Liska or I (or whoever is doing check-in) that they want to see the xp go to a different place. If you have xp going to a character, it will continue going to that character until you tell us to change it. As long as you are happy with where your xp is going you don't need to tell us if you are taking your xp any more. Starting in May 2022, any experience you get during a month will be only the experience earned since the prior event. What to do if you think your total is off Total experience was calculated for each character based on the most recent character sheet in the character archives. This means that for some people who haven't archived anything lately this will be WAYYYYYYY off. If that is the case, take a picture of the front side of your character sheet and send it to me and I can update your xp totals. Bear in mind most marshals assign experience one time per month, right before a new event, so don't expect to see anything immediately after an event from things like PELs. We're all volunteers have some patience. Written XP Ideally staff will now be assigning all xp between games online. If staff for some reason feel the need to write XP onto a character sheet, you'll need to bring your sheet to the logs desk to have it recorded, so that it shows up in the XP look up.

  8. Camping in a tent is allowed, however there are some complex rules around doing so. If you are using a modern tent you will need to break it down on Saturday morning and then set it up again on Saturday night which is undesirable. Period tents do not have this requirement but do have locations we would prefer to see them in. Its worth pointing out that there are MANY lean-tos available for use though they can get cold in the winter, this is probably your best option for sleeping without sharing a room. There are plenty of beds available in heated rooms, but those rooms do all share their space with other people roughly 10-20 depending on the building. A short hike from the main building there are also the A-frames (which are heated and enclosed) that sleep 10 people each, and lately have been fairly low occupancy. I hope that helped to answer your questions.
  9. FF2022 Items and Rules Announcement

    You can send payment for items you won via paypal to "paypal@mvgc.net" or pay in cash at your next event. The only requirement for how you wear the "tattoo" is that it is visible in your normal garb (if a hood going up covers it once in a while that's fine, if walking around normally no one ever sees it you should place it more obviously).
  10. For this weekend. estimatevalue-Feb-22.pdf idmagic-Feb-22.pdf
  11. I checked and it says that is set up "when requested". Either Kerrie already made that change, or it was set up when you asked for it. Unsure which. If the latter, let us know if it isn't working and we can try to figure out why.
  12. Pictures of your Garb & Gear!

    Dustan just got married this past weekend so I don't know if he will be his usual highly responsive self. Someone with more expertise than me should hopefully see this soon and give you a response. With the Covid downtime people are a little slower to check the forums than normal as well, so I it might take a little.
  13. August 2021 Preproduction

    Quick note for anyone who has abilities or unusual items that care about the year (pretty much the merchant skill and a few feb feast items): don't count 2020 as a year. Just count feb feast 2020 as a part of 2021. (Source: Pat Lane)
  14. A new Board is posted outside the Inn

    A funeral will be held for the founder of the Cult of the Divine Dragon, Joy "didn't live alone long enough to get a new last name", formerly known as Joy Strifeborn, possibly known as something else now that she's dead. 9:00pm on Friday February 7th at the shrine that used to be hers but is now mine. In lieu of gifts please make donations in her name to Pisceans without Borders. I'm not sure which name you should use, I don't think they got the memo that she was no longer Joy Strifeborn. -Enzo Belli, leader of the cult of the Divine Dragon.

    Verified with rules, you are correct, wiki has been updated. Note that there is still a rule regarding 75% coverage in terms of plate can have up to 25% non-plate connective bits and still count as plate for all areas covered.
