Gettysburg Staff
Donations THIS WILL BE CHANGING APRIL 1st 2014 (New MI policy will be posted separately)

Our general Policy on donations is as follows:

1. If you would not use it, we don't want it. What this means is, if the item in question is not of a quality that you yourself would make use of then we will not be likely to accept it. Personal style, character style or theme are not what we are referring to.
2. If it is not on the list of items needed then we may not accept it. While we are grateful for any donations you may bring to us, there are some things we just do not need any more of. While we would love to accept everything, it's just not possible. Space to store all of the things involved is always an issue, and when we have too much of one thing we are not able to accept any more as we would have nowhere to store it. Please check the lists before you make any purchases, or spend hours constructing anything. We hate to turn away anyone with something to give, but sometimes it is unavoidable.
3. You may ship your donation to us. We are more than happy to have you ship your donations to us. If you don’t have room in the car or are not going to make an event, ship it! Contact us first Use the same shipping address that is used for sending us checks. Make sure you let us know who you are and your player number, please.
4. Standard Gobby to Dollar rate. (* higher rates are in effect at this time) Our standard reward rate is 3 Goblin stamps per dollar. So make sure you keep your receipt as otherwise we are going to guess. We also reward time spent working at 20 goblin stamps per hour. Specifically requested or needed donations may have an increased ratio, which will be posted on the Donations page, or in the Donations thread on the message board.
5. Quality. Higher quality items will get more stamps. It's as simple as that. If you make us the most kick-*** long sword ever made, you will get more stamps for it than the guy who spent 15 min in the car ride up making a long sword from an old fishing rod, and leftover foam.
6. Talk to us! The staff will decide based on the above policy and our current needs what is a fair and rewarding amount of stamps to compensate you for your donation. If you feel you are not being treated fairly let us know, we will try to work something out.

Event Awards

In an effort to encourage players to get more into the spirit of the game we have several rewards for PCs, NPCs and teams to get more into game and stay there! The following awards will be judged by the staff. Players / teams will only be awarded once per calendar year in a category, At the end of the year there will be a best of the year category for each as well. So staying consistently in character, looking good and encouraging the game to be fun throughout the season is how you win the yearly version of the awards. Everyone on the campsite PC/NPC/Staff will have a chance to place a ballot in logistics and you vote will count. The possible event awards are as follows:

• Great looking PC for a non-makeup heavy race,
• Great looking PC for a heavy make-up looking race
• Great looking camp/cabin area (Accessories, wall hangings, etc are encouraged!)
• Great Sportsmanship (Take your hits, don't cheese the game, and be fun to play with)
• Great PC Role-player. (This is a vote by all involved, ballots are tallied at closing ceremonies)
• Great NPC Role player. (This is also a vote by all involved, ballots taken at closing ceremonies)

NOTE: If several individuals get a bunch of votes we will be happy to hand the award out to several people.

Please remember that you can only win a category once for the weekend award. However any additional votes you get do carry through to the end of the year. player recognition will be announced on the boards a day or two after the event.

Gobbied Magic Items

As of 2012 Alliance Gettysburg has the following policy on purchasing magical items with goblin stamps. Item picks must be sent into logistics two weeks prior to the event you want to get them. Item requests must have a rep description (picture is fine), and once the item is calculated, approved, and deducted you will receive a item number that is required to be placed on the rep in a permanent fashion. It will be checked before you receive your tag in logistics. All items are LCO, and have a goblin stamp cost equal to the production point value of that item being created through the treasure policy (Or the closest approximation).

LCO Weapons, shields and armor do not automatically become rendered when you enchant them with a battle magic, cloaks, etc. You must also buy render indestructible or render indestructible, improved. The exception to this rule is if you enchant your shield or armor rep with arcane armor the effect will also render your armor or shield rep. If you imbue your weapon with an "Aura", "Reaver" or "Slayer" (like Damage Aura, Human Reaver, or Undead Slayer) These effects are considered to render your weapon for the duration of your enchantment. You may not put a 1/day stone bolt on your sword or armor to protect it.

Picks are a generic term for "pick off of the list" Some items you wish to make may require multiple "picks" to make it. You can earn "picks" in the following methods:
(1 pick) NPC for a minimum 2 hours at an event, or at the discretion (need) of plot for "fence hoppers": if you fence hop for 8+ hours you will get two (2) picks.
(2 picks) NPC for a full weekend event. (Fri-Sun)
(+1 pick) for named staff positions and exemplary work above and beyond the call of a weekend
(+ picks) for special promotions (like our kick-off promotion, etc.)

To purchase a basic LCO magic item you must have at least 1 pick credited to your account. If you stack multiple effects on the same item, all effects must have the same expiration date. That means if you want an item to have 3 effects on it and you want the item to last 3 years, then you must pay the 3 year cost for each effect. The expiration date on the tag for the item will be calculated by the shortest expiration date. Below is a list of "pick" and gobbie costs for an item:
