Alliance Raleigh is excited to announce the opening of our first game April the 8th, hosted on our new Permanent site

The event for PCs will cost $70 and NPCs $20; however anyone who preregisters will gain a $10 discount! Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner on Saturday are included with your event fee. If this is your first alliance game, you get half off both your first game, and the first time you PC after that.

Site is Located at : 1317 Joyce Woodworks RD, Sandy Ridge, NC 27046.

Everyone report to the small cabin for logistics, and to unload, parking is provided nearby in a different section for the site

Airport info - The closest airport is in Greensboro the airport code is GSO, this is roughly 30 minutes from site.

Site info - Site opens at 5:30 pm Friday with Game on aimed to start at 8 pm.

Speed Limit - Please drive lowly and carefully on the road into site, there are numerous small animals, deer and children that might be around.

Sleeping - Sleeping is currently provided via 5 12x16 canvas tents, these tents have footprints (floors) and are fully screened in with the ability to open in a number of ways to enjoy the breeze. Cots are provided to the best of our ability (we currently have 20 and will order more as attendance/funds allow) In addition NPCs are allowed to sleep inside our walk in basement Monster camp, where a small number of mattresses are available.

Restrooms - We have 2 porta potties that are delivered fresh before each game. In addition we currently have 1 full bath that will be limitedly available during the day time and for Sunday Showers (whew!). We ask that you use the porta potties if comfortable with them to help keep the plumbed bathrooms available. (Special note: a second plumbed bathroom has been contracted for in monster camp but will not be installed in time for this event.)

Gameplay - Alliance Raleigh runs modules and story lines Friday night until roughly Midnight - 1 am, some modules started before 1 am may continue until finished but no new modules will be started, with game play resuming after breakfast (served from 8-9am). Card reset happens during Dinner with Saturday night ending roughly the same time as Friday. Sunday Modules will start around 9 am Sunday, with clean up starting near noon. Anyone that stays on site to assist with clean up is granted a 30 Goblin Stamp thank you as well as an invite to join us at the local dinner for afters. Alliance Raleigh does not provide any plot, or Modules during the designated rest times. These times will be obvious in game (for an in game reason) and our lighting will change during this time to make it obvious.

Lightning - Our site can get dark as we are far enough out from light pollution(even neighbors) to provide a really natural lightning experience, so we ask you be sure to bring your light reps for comfort. We have a number of solar powered large lights already that provide lightning during the night and can be moved to provide light for modules and the pc sleeping/town area itself is well lit but having your own light for comfort/safety is suggested.

Memberships - Please note your first event each year in Alliance Raleigh comes with a $5 discount as well as a mandatory $5 yearly membership fee. (it's a legal coverage thing as we are a private group) You do not have to do anything to deal with this as we'll apply the matching discount and fee for you.

Pre-registration for this event should be completed over on the CMA: https://db.alliancelarp.com/events/612. Pre-registrations should include needed tags, production, magic items, and any food allergies. Pre-registration will be open until Tuesday the 5th, you can prepay via paypal to info@allianceRaleigh.com

Pre-registration due date - All pre-regs must be in no later than April 6th at 11:59 pm EST to qualify for the discount, if you are coming and do not make this deadline please ensure to register so we know you are coming and can prepare appropriately for you.

In some randomly exciting news (for us at least) it appears there is a very strong chance our Monster camp bathroom (with dual vanities for make up) will be ready by our first event!

Do ya’ll want/need backstories for new characters?

We love getting back ground on characters, however since Hearthglen is a brand new world, please remember the following when making submissions.

1.) Your character must be from outside the world, they can be from other established lands or unknown communities in the great general mist sphere (although in that case expect not to be able to return)
2.) Focus on what your character's goals, likes and dislikes are to give our plot staff the best idea of how to ensure we have things of interest for your character.
3.) Avoid specifics where possible for future goals, IE 'Kallith wants to learn about the planes and celestial magic' is better than 'Kallith wants to develop the plane hopping golem Galacticus that has they follow 4 abilities'


Finally Please note that it is our Policy that we do not design plotlines around non-public characters such as those in back stories for two primary reasons. First it tends to be unbalanced as more experienced larpers/writers will have an inside track to plotlines other players may not and we want to ensure access to plot lines is not based on the amount of time in between games players can devote. Secondly we want to avoid plotlines that promote segmentation and many backgrounds have very sensitive storylines that do not lend themselves to bringing others along, indeed they can have significant reasons not to bring any but a small group, this runs counter to our overall goal of creating the most interactive community possible.

As always our goal is to make our game at Alliance Raleigh as safe and accessible for as many people as possible. We are open to feedback and discussions regarding this, and all, of our policies. Please feel free to discuss the policy here on the forums or in our Discord server or Facebook group.
