New Player Information by the New Player Coordinators

To all our new players! We are excited to finally meet you and have a few tips to give before you arrive. Please come as close to 4:30pm as you are able to give yourself enough time to prepare for your first LARP! There will be a table for New Player check-in. The new player Liaisons will meet you there and guide you through Logistics. It is important to be in costume and in the Tavern by 7pm because we will be giving a site tour so that you can familiarize yourself with SummerAsh.

Please eat a big lunch and bring plenty of snacks for the weekend, even if you bought a meal plan. It is not unheard of to be pulled away from your dinner by critters, a mod or a tea party. When packing, please remember to bring a mug, waterskin, canteen, or other period appropriate drink container. Also don’t forget to pack a towel and hygiene kit as there ARE HOT SHOWERS!!!

Remember, The Denver area nights can get very cold no matter what time of year so please bring a cloak, shawl, jacket, or extra layers for nighttime activities. Finally, We are inviting everyone out to lunch Sunday afternoon after the end of the event! It is a wonderful way to decompress, celebrate everything that happened, and get to know your fellow players out of character. Ask the new player coordinators, Stephen (Squee) or Hayley(Merridie), for the location. It is by no means mandatory, but we hope to see you there!

  • Cabins - Please decorate your cabins as you see fit! Do not leave holes in the walls or have any open flames. However, make it your home for the weekend; just make sure you keep other people’s joy in mind. Do not be offensive or cover someone else's bunk without permission.
  • Most cabins have a mini room in the back, please do not take this space (and block it off, put up a ward, etc) if you are a single person. This is not fair to the other cabin mates and they can request to sleep back there. Be polite
  • Heat – (We know this is an issue, we will have space heaters, etc.) The cabins should have heat in them, sometimes it can be a little too warm. Work with your cabin mates to make sure things are comfortable. The heat comes from underneath one or more wardrobes. Hint: At night, it is a good place to place your boots so they can dry by morning.
  • Plastic Bags - Consider bringing plastic grocery bags to wrap your feet in. It will allow your boots to get wet and your feet to remain dry. It is an ugly little thing to have wet and cold feet; solve one of those issues if you can.
  • Parking - Parking is past the player cabins, next to the soccer field. Late arrivals please park at NPC Camp, if you arrive after 9 pm. Please have cars parked by 9 pm Friday night.
  • Event End - We will be calling the game at noon on Sunday. We HIGHLY encourage everyone to attend Closing Announcements at that time, before preparing to clean up and leave the site.
  • Smoking - There is no smoking in the cabins or on the porches, vape or otherwise. Colorado is going to be in a high wind advisory
  • Site Exploration - The site we are getting to enjoy is massive! Seriously. It is very large. ADL truly wants you to go and enjoy every acre of it. However, if you are going to go off on a serious hike or just for a walk through the woods, we are going to ask that you come to NPC Camp and inform us and encourage such treks to be enjoyed with friends or teammates. Who knows…? You might even find a random encounter or bit of treasure that ADL can neither confirm nor deny will be seeded in the woods!
  • Rhino-hiding/Machine Gunning/Cheating - We hate to have to say these things, however they are better said now than later. The first season we allowed items to slide that we all saw and did not say anything. Hits going unnoticed, swinging too hard and too fast, saying something was on the card that was not there and was not reported to Logistics. This event we will be politely asking for verification of items/formals, etc. We are not doing this to be rude, we just want to make sure everyone is having a fair and enjoyable time within the rules of the game. Thank you for doing your part.
  • Items usage - There might be things in the game that destroy your weapons in some way. Swords, shields, etc. It might be a shatter, acid or massive strikes. When that happens, be prepared to hand over your weapon/item tags at the end of the battle.
  • Physical Contact - No sharing food, drink, tents, or bunks.
    • Treasure Drop - In an effort to minimize contact, ADL will be instituting an end of mod and end of major combat treasure drop distribution system. ADL Marshalls and Module Moderators will be instructed to remind players how and why this is being done. If you wish to search an NPC for treasure (and you are highly encouraged to do so!) please do not touch the NPC. Just simply state, “I search you”. The NPC will be instructed to respond as follows;
      • If there is nothing to find then they will respond with, “You find nothing”.
      • If there IS something to found, and it is during a module or large wave battle, then they will respond with, “Loot Bag”. This is to indicate that treasure has been found and will be presented, en masse, at the conclusion of the battle.
      • If there IS something to found, and this is an individual/random NPC, then they will respond with, “Found”. The NPC will then politely place what was found on the ground at their feet for you to recover without coming into contact with the NPC.
    • Touch Casting - In our continued effort to minimize all physical contact, we are encouraging players to modify touch casting as follows. Please approach within one foot of the intended target and then instead of touching them with a packet/vial, just simply call aloud the target's name or descriptor and then the effect. Note that the packet/vial must still be in hand and ready to be used.
    • Physical Roleplay - Until it is safer to do so, we are encouraging players to suspend all physical roleplay. It may still take place in the game. ADL would just encourage players to describe the action instead or negotiate that narrative together
  • Major Safety Concerns - Our site is 380 acres of pristine, private land in the middle of the Black Forest at 7,000 feet in elevation. While that provides us with some amazing views, it also can be an adjustment physically. Below are a few of the things to watch for while enjoying the ADL event.
  • Altitude Sickness - This is physical distress from a difficulty adjusting to lower oxygen pressure at higher altitude. Symptoms to watch out for include headache, nausea, fatigue, and shortness of breath. Drink. Water. A lot.
  • Dehydration - This issue is made worse at higher altitudes because of dryer and colder air absorbing more moisture from the body when in the lungs. Symptoms to look for are lack of appetite, nausea/vomiting, dizziness, and sleepiness. Drink. Water. A lot.
  • Hypothermia- Signs: Shivering, Slurred speech or mumbling, Slow, shallow breathing, Weak pulse, Clumsiness or lack of coordination, Drowsiness or very low energy, Confusion or memory loss, Loss of consciousness, Bright red, cold skin (in infants)


There will be a light that can be seen from the back porch of the tavern, if the light is:
Green: Approach and knock on the door. We have time to speak with you
Yellow: Approach with caution, we might be low on NPCs or busy on an issue so our time will be limited
Red: Do not approach. We are busy and cannot field questions
Off: Y’all will probably already be in bed. However, if it is off then all of us have finally gone to bed.​


  • Masks - These are not mandatory but please feel free if you need it. The state and or site guidelines are subject to change, but at present, masks are not required. For comfort or safety, if you wish to wear a mask, they will be considered out of game.
  • Hand Sanitizer - ADL has provided hand sanitizer in every communal space on the site (i.e. the tavern, the bathhouse, the library, the cabins, and NPC camp.) All participants are encouraged to use them liberally.

  • Please make sure to give a thank you to Jacq (Luise), Egen (Euphemia) and Z (Sara) for setting up the hospitality baskets in the restrooms, they are free to use and should help everyone at events.
