    July event date change

    Mainly I want to get this down in a public area that the staff is more or less anticipated to see it, and to make sure it was openly described: I'm pretty disappointed in the manner in which the date change for the July event was communicated. I don't play many events a year (and I suspect my...

    Re: photo permissions

    Does it strike anyone else as weird that you have to opt out of having your photo used in the rulebook, rather than explicitly grant permission?

    LARPs and Gypsies

    This discussion is food for thought. Before offering my own opinion, I'm curious what other people think.

    Issues with account

    My wife's forum account "Slice" appears to be having issues. It wasn't taking her password, so she attempted to reset using the "lost password" function a number of months back. The new password hadn't worked (it continued to return 'wrong password') and she eventually just went off and did...

    Rankin/Bass characters as Alliance characters/monsters

    The purpose of this thread to have some fun during the holiday season. Any attempts at too-much-seriousness and scroogery should be dealt with harshly by the Paladins, imo. Pick some of your favorite Rankin/Bass characters (Frosty the Snowman, King Moonracer, Hermy the Dentist Elf, etc.) and...

    Re: the role of plot/hobby vs. "employment"

    (Not quoting Toddo to pick on him in particular, mostly using it as a launching point for discussion.) So, in broad strokes, I disagree here. Yes, LARPing is, on some level, a hobby. And yes, as a form of employment, the pay sucks, but that's okay because the hours are long. But I generally...

    Standing Guard in a LARP

    Some good points made here. I know I've run this well, and run it badly. What is your flow as a plot person? What do you do as a PC to keep it interesting?

    Missing shoes

    Did anyone happen to double-check the ramp-cabin in the Meadow on Monday? I appear to be missing my Vibram Five-Fingers.

    Item Recall + Spirit Link/Lock

    Item Recall has the following language: This ritual cannot be placed upon an item that is already spirit linked or spirit locked. It makes no statements, though, that Spirit Link/Lock cannot be cast on an object which already has Item Recall on it, and neither do the other two scrolls. Nor is...

    April Event Favorite Moments/Raves

    It'd been a while since I'd been able to make it out to a game, and I usually spend most of my time in the kitchen, so, to be honest, I wasn't certain that I'd know what to do with myself with all that spare time to actually run around. Luckily, the awesome plot team that set everything into...

    Does anyone have a pair of short sword reps they could loan?

    While packing for my flight, I realized/decided that I have no particularly good way to wrap my latex shorties that I feel safe with. Might I beg of someone a favor and borrow a pair? I have tags for 'em.

    Item Pick List

    So, did this stop being a thing? If not, has a new list ever been generated?

    Follow-up Q: "all rituals abide by the flaw's restriction"

    Just to make explicit - the statement "all rituals abide by the flaw's restriction" is not intended to act as a suppression of the ritual effects, and be read as applying to qualities inherent to the object, is it? i.e. a Rendered sword with the flaw "not usable by elves" doesn't become...

    What is the Alliance?

    The rules thread wasn't really the place for this discussion, but I'm curious. I can read a lot of things into it, based on my own filters and prejudices, but I figured I should ask for clarity. What do you mean when you say "we are a true Alliance"? What is a step too far, and what are the...

    Clarification on "Concentration while in a Prison" response

    My apologies for following-up on this. The answer here seems to suggest that you can neither maintain nor begin to use a Concentration effect while under a "No Game Abilities" effect. While the logic of "if you had a MEC Storm up, and took a Drain, your MEC Storm goes away" is fairly clear...

    Concentration while in a Prison

    Since there are marshals on both sides of the fence: can you maintain or perform actions that require concentration while under a Prison effect, so long as the somatic requirements are also achieved? i.e. maintain Repel/Desecrate/Sanctuary/Fortress, maintain (but not case) a MEC Storm, refit...
