  Prelog is now OPEN for "Return of Jonny Six Swords", April 14th
Posted by: Alek - 04-02-2018, 08:57 PM - Forum: Announcements - No Replies

Prelog is now OPEN for "Return of Jonny Six Swords", our April 14th tavern event.

Sign in will begin at 12:00 pm on Saturday. This is a "tagless" event meaning that you will receive craftsman, etc. but will not receive skill tags. You still have however many skills at your disposal as indicated by your character card though.

-----

Spring is here and yet again the big top is being raised. There are a few familiar faces Jonny and Alistar are seen chatting by one of the caravans as a busy crew of freaks and downtrodden work frantically around the area.

Come one, come all, e'er big or small and see the wonders Six-Swords brings.
Come one, come all, with copper or more, to see the baubles your locals have in store.
With bell and harp, hip and foot, dance and make merry with Spring.
Drink and eat, watch and laugh, read your cards and sing.
The Circus of Misfits shall soon arrive, The Circus will briefly stay.
So where will you be and where will you go on this year's Tricksters Day?

NPC Camp 2018


NPC camp is where stories are born.
Every member of the NPC team participates in bringing these stories to life - they are our Storytellers. There is no hard separation between "Shapers" and "NPCs" on this team. Everyone collaborates to deliver the stories on site by playing NPC roles. Every team member is also welcome to write and submit their story ideas to the team. We aim to create a variety of content so that there's something for everyone: combat, puzzles, politics, RP. Our goal is to create an interesting, immersive, fun world for our community to live in, and deliver it in a way that is safe, inclusive, and fair.


Team Member Duties
All seasonal Team Members contribute to the team by:

  • Studying the rulebook to have a great working understanding of the mechanics, particular the magic and combat systems.
  • Attending most plot meetings (often online)
  • Completing Module Writeups as applicable including monsters, treasure, and NPCs needed to the HOP on or before the date provided.
  • Submitting prop requirements as needed to the Prop Director.
  • Submitting Instamods including full write-ups to the Monster Marshal.
  • Attending most events throughout the season as a NPC. No longer able to PC at Ashendael events during current season.
  • Working with the Head of Plot, and Monster Marshall to ensure roles are going out on schedule.
  • Responding when volunteers are asked for.
  • Staying hydrated and ensuring you are getting ample breaks, sleep, and food when its mealtime.
  • Helping with tidying up NPC camp when between roles.
  • Performing all IG roles with good RP and solid knowledge of the relevant rules.
  • Doing monster and RP roles to help advance the plot lines.
  • Doing “Crunchie” roles when content is light.
  • Maintaining personal NPC Characters with the theme and players fun in mind.
  • Assembling the NPC team for module(s) you are running, ensure they have a good understanding of the rules mechanics being used in that module.
  • Assisting monster marshall in prepping, statting, costuming and makeup for the NPCs on mods you are running.
  • Prioritizing player fun over winning.
  • Taking a light hand with character deaths unless instructed otherwise by HoP.
  • Delivering an enjoyable play experience including the appropriate level of challenge up to and including death depending on player choices and agreed upon module difficulty with Head of Plot.

Duties when Writing Mods
Coordination with the Head of Plot to ensure the module ideas are appropriate and focused on the following criteria:
  • Player enjoyment
  • Appropriate Challenge level
  • Consistent with Lore
  • Consistent with Season and World Plot

Team Member Rewards

35 Frags*: for NPCing the event (70 for a "double blanket" event)
25 Frags: for the added responsibilities beyond those of an event NPC (ie yearly roles, leadership tasks, marshaling combats and mods, creating instamods etc)
20 Frags: "shaping" bonus available for any team member who provides 5 or more well-written modules to any event
** Frags: our goal is to ensure that everyone's efforts and contributions are rewarded, we're working on a bonus frag system for this. TBA

*:when the frag book changes such that blankets can no longer be purchased for 35 frags, this award can be replaced with 1 blanket instead (2 for a double blanket event)


To Apply
Please send an email to overseer@underworldottawa.ca with the following information:
  • brief summary of why you'd like to join the team
  • what you bring to the team, including your related experience and strengths
  • description of your First Aid qualifications/status (ie expired/current/never certified in Emergency/Standard/Wilderness etc first aid)
  • description of availability
  • any phobias or physical limitations  (these will not disqualify you, it simply allows us to plan better when assembling the team)

The rain has worn away part of the valley that was hiding an old ruined study. The last few days people have been removing several books and taking them to storage for historical purpose in the driftwood town hall. REC’s team is looking for volunteers to dig down and see what secrets have been hiding below.
Meanwhile back at the conclave tower the Avian Guildmaster sits out back watching an old rusted Avian clock flare to life. Starting to turn again, he watches with great intent as he tosses some food to the squirrels.

Its starting to look like the town of Driftwood is surviving the winter. With the streets clear of ice and snow so that the carriages can move freely the town is coming to life. The town guards are on active patrol of the streets and there are several buskers throughout the day juggling and singing. It is not uncommon to see large shipments of supplies moving down the streets. The REC teams have been scene collection extra tools.
Jaden is inviting you all to attend the opening of his new art gallery. Please feel free to stop by and see the local talent or bring your own art to show off to others. Lord Johan will be there as a special judge to reward the winner. Although the prize has not been announced many of the townsfolk have been telling of his generosity. There will be other competitions and prizes.

Prelog is now OPEN for our November 18, 2017 day event "Regrets Run Deep"

Prelog will be open until 11:59pm of November 14th, 2017.

Deep below the earth, a ruined city awaits rediscovery. Parts have been uncovered with varying results, yet more secrets remain to be found. On the new moon of the 11th month, mere weeks after a night of falling stars, a reawakening has been foretold. The automata of Jorul Amat, Master Alchemist and Fulminator to the lost city of Erdhmir, shall rise from the ashes of the cataclysm that took their master and continue to work towards their noble goal --achieving perfection--once more.

---

Welcome to our last outdoor event of the 2017 season.
Like tavern events, Day Mods are one day and tagless (meaning you have your normal uses of abilities and spells, we just don't print the paper tags and trust you all to be honourable gamers).

Remember that it maybe quite cold, especially as the sun dips near the end of event, so please dress appropriately and remember your layers, socks and your woolens.

We will be incorporating a time around 3-4pm where the action will be more conducive to food preparation, however we will not be taking a formal food break.

Event will be followed by our Season NPC & Shaper Appreciation night : https://www.facebook.com/events/1354035321385266

Date:
November 18, 2017

Posted by: Vaela - 11-06-2017, 03:18 PM - Forum: Rules Questions - Replies (6)

There was some discussion about this Facebook, but I did not see an official ruling. As some of what was said on Facebook contradicted what I had been told during the game, I would really like an official answer :

Do we know what magical items do?

For example:
If I had a magical item in my loot bag, do I know what effect it has on me?
If a merchant offers to sell me a magical weapon, do I know if it actually is magical and if it does what the merchant says it does?
If the hospital has several potions in a box, can I choose the correct one based on the tag inside, imagining that each kind is a different color in game, or would we have to add more in game labelling to the potion bottles to do that?

Thanks
