Maelstrom: A Game of Stones, Labor Day Long Weekend Pre-Reg!

A Game of Stones

“A paranoid is someone who knows a little of what's going on.”
― William S. Burroughs


The massive sky chariot raced far above the clouds, rising higher and higher. The chariot shot into the dark storm clouds of home; heavy, black, and pendulous. Once enveloped in the Endless Storm Baron Boom addressed the sky around him, “Emperor Neyen,” boomed Boom, “it is confirmed. The mortals have allied with Stone, but not yet Genesis.”

A diminutive voice squeaked an answered that floated down on the wind, “This will not do; Angana will be quite displeased. We must act before she discovers, there is no need for her to worry needlessly. She must not be disappointed, Boom! We must break the alliance.”

“The alliance is nascent, Emperor. It will be handled, but do not worry. You rest; Emperor, a storm must gather before its true power is unleashed.”

“Perhaps you're correct, Boom. I’m still so weary from my last encounter with her. I trust you to handle this.”

Boom let out a thunderous laugh. "If everything goes according to plan," he replied, "the situation will handle itself."

Meanwhile elsewhere,

Justin was collecting flowers not far from the area claimed by Stone, when the earth began to shake. The blue-haired teen was knocked to his feet as the earth cracked and mighty trees came crashing down around him. It was brief, but powerful. Justin grabbed the flowers he had picked and started running towards the Bastion.

“Noelle! Calli! Shin! I’m coming!”

Meanwhile elsewhere,

Lord Obsidian’s new chisel was making quick work of his task, when he was interrupted by one of his soldiers.

“My lord, Macadam and Shale report they still have not indicated a source for the disturbances in the Plane’s mantel. What are your orders?”

“First, do not disturb me while I work. Second, I only require updating when there has been progress. No report makes it quite clear there has been no progress. If Macadam and Shale cannot locate the source of the tremors, perhaps it is time to turn to the mortals for assistance. After what I have been doing for them, they should be most agreeable.”

Please see Logistics and You for more information on what is required to complete your pre-registration and remember that you will need to bring all related tags to logistics, or logistics will not be able to check you in. This includes magic item tags, spell and production books, and workshop tags. Any magic items being brought to game not pre-registered or checked in at your first logistics of the weekend will not be able to be used for that weekend.

When you arrive:
When you arrive on site please go directly to logistics to check in before unloading and setting up. We will not be having opening ceremonies this weekend; you will be in game as soon as you are checked in and in costume. Any relevant pre-game information will be distributed with your check-in packet.

Action will start around 8PM on Friday.

Food:
Our meal plan for PCs costs $30 for the weekend. You MUST pre-register in order to buy into the meal plan. The pre-registration interface has an option to both be included and let us know about any dietary restrictions. There is an additional cost of 2 silver per meal in game to the kitchen staff (and if you can't pay that, talk to them about helping out in the kitchen.) Water will be available to everyone for free at all times. Other drinks may be available for a small in game charge. We really need Cast/Crew to pre-register for the event as well so that we can estimate food needs; in the event we run short Cast/Crew that pre-register will be fed before those who do not. The menu for the weekend is as follows:

  • Friday Night
    • Lasagna (spicy and regular Italian)
    • Salad
    • Vegetarian option - Vegetarian Lasagna
  • Saturday Morning Breakfast
    • Hash Brown Patties
    • Bacon
    • Scrambled Eggs
    • Cinnamon Apple Oatmeal
  • Saturday Dinner
    • Pasta with Sauce options
      • Vegetarian Marinara sauce
      • Ground Beef Bolognese Sauce (no pork)
      • Bolognese Blush Sauce (ground beef, ground pork, parmesan cheese, whipping cream and marinara sauce)
    • Salad
    • Garlic Bread
  • Sunday Morning Breakfast
    • Pancakes (plain or chocolate chip)
    • Scrambled eggs
    • Bacon
    • Cinnamon Apple Oatmeal
  • Sunday Dinner
    • Barbecue Chicken
    • Corn on the Cob
    • Baked Potatoes
  • Monday
    • Leftovers

Leftovers will be in the walk-in fridge and people on the meal plan may help themselves at any time that meals are not currently being served. We do request that you put the food back in the fridge as soon as you are done getting your food, before you go to eat it. We also request that you clean up after yourself with leftovers.

On a related note, the kitchen staff brings many of their own personal supplies from home to help run the kitchen. If you are using any of them (oven mitts, measuring cups, measuring spoons, towels, cooking tools) please clean them (if applicable) and put them back where you found them when you are done. We would very much like to not have to search the lodge to find a missing oven mitt.

The Tavern will have coolers with ice water and Kool-aid drink mix all weekend. People should bring reusable bottles to fill up at the coolers. There will also be coffee available if you talk to the Kitchen staff.

If you need food during the weekend please come see us, we have snacks and there may be leftovers available so come see us if you need food.

Sleeping Arrangements
Like last event, sleeping arrangements for this weekend will be different than usual. We have four eight-bed cabins available for PC use. To request a cabin please email logistics@alliancesf.net. Priority will be given to groups and to out-of-state visitors without other sleeping arrangements. If you are requesting a cabin for a group please have everyone in your group preregister before submitting your request. Due to the limited sleeping space for this weekend we will be filling any unclaimed beds Thursday night on a first-come, first-served basis.

If the cabins fill up or if you prefer to sleep elsewhere, there will be campsites and perma-tents available. In the case of camping-unfriendly weather we may open up additional beds, but do not plan on it. Remember to bring extra bedding if you are using the perma-tents; the cots are comfortable but not particularly insulating.
