    Whilst the chapter does its best to work with what it already has, it is no secret that LARP events thrive on the donations of their players. Below you can find a basic guide to donations and their compensation, though feel free to contact SoMN Logistics or Plot if you have any questions. Please remember to save receipts to ensure we can give you the BEST rate possible!

    GENERAL DONATION INFORMATION

    • Spell/Arrow/Alchemy Packets — 1 GS per 2 Packets (Note that specific requests for packets or large packet donations may warrant 1/1 or additional bonuses)

    • Hosting a New Player Fight Practice — 200 GS with Staff Approval (This must be planned at least 2 weeks in advance so we can publicly post it)
    SPECIFIC DONATIONS

    The items on the following lists are things we are specifically hoping to get some of, with items with numbers in parentheses indicating the number of these items that we would like to receive. If there is a 0, we could still receive them, but there is very low demand for them at the moment. Items highlighted in red are in stronger demand, and items in red and bold are in very high demand. If an item is marked with blue asterisks (***), please contact Plot for additional details on what we're looking for.

    WEAPONS


    Please note that, given that we are attempting to “freshen up” our stock of weapons that have been slowly deteriorating over the last few years, we ask that you do not donate your “super-clunky, badly-made, ugly-looking, not-good-enough-for-your-taste first attempt” weapons. Such weapons may garner you a reduced Goblin Stamp reward from the values listed below. On a similar note, long weapons (longsword length or longer) ideally should be made from Ultralight materials, and those that are not are likely to garner you a reduced Goblin Stamp reward as well.
    • Daggers and Small Blunt Weapons (0) - 30 GS
    • Short Blade (0) and Blunt Weapons (0) - 50 GS
    • Short Claws (0) – 50 GS
    • Long Claws (2) - 120 GS
    • Two-Handed Claw (0) – 100 GS
    • Long Blade (2) and Blunt Weapons (1) - 120 GS
    • Two-Handed Blade (0) and Blunt Weapons (0) – 100 GS
    • Polearms (0) – 100 GS
    • Shields (0) – 50 GS
    • Weapon Cloth Covers (Black/Gray) (6)
    • Weapon Cloth Covers (Red) (6)
    • Drawstring Shield Covers (Red) (2)
    CLOTHING
    • Large/XL in-genre Shirts and Tunics (Assorted colors - should fit a variety of people)

      • Blue tabards (4)
      • Purple tabards (2)
      • Silver tabards (2)
      • Brown fur (1)
