Important Game Information - All Players Must Read!!!!!
Below are details of what to bring to a Chronicle event and other important information. Please take the time to read carefully over the following to ensure a smooth event for everybody involved.
WHAT TO BRING
- All players are required to bring their own game gear, including costumes, weapons, spell packets and headbands etc. Failure to possess the necessary props means that abilities that rely upon them cannot be used.
- Crew are encouraged to bring their own costumes and game gear if they possess it, otherwise bring a change or two of plain black clothing and black, sturdy shoes.
- All participants are required to bring their own basic out-of-character necessities, including sleeping gear, toiletries and medication etc.
- Warm bedding like a sleeping bag or sheets and a duvet, and a pillow. If you have chosen in-character bunking please bring a blanket to disguise any modern-looking bedding.
- At least two towels and toiletries such as a toothbrush and paste, soap, deodorant etc...
- If you require any medication, please ensure you bring this and carry it with you at all times, or store in a secure location.
- Warm clothing for when it gets cold at night. Bring something warm to wear discreetly under your costume, and pack spare underwear, trousers, and lots of thick socks.
- Wear sturdy footwear. Practicality is more important than style.
- A plate, bowl, cup, knife, fork and spoon will be needed at meal times. Remember that this gear is part of your costume, so try for something in-character looking - don’t bring plastic.
- Bring water bottles full of water, and drink regularly. These do not have to look in character - hydration is more important than immersion.
- Bags to carry all your gear in. It pays to bring two bags, one that can pass as medieval to carry stuff around during the game, and one that you can leave under your bed with toiletries and any medication or other out of game gear in it.
- Tents: Please remember to bring your own tent if you are tenting.
- Sun screen: wear and re-apply regularly. Hats are also a good idea.
- Please remember to plan for bad weather - just in case!
WHAT TO DO BEFORE THE GAME
Please make sure that you read the rule book; this is available both on the website and as a PDF version. Please read the whole rule book - even the parts that don't apply to your character as this helps to facilitate game play when someone uses an ability from a different path as you.
All participants are required to bring a signed copy of our Welfare Form to a game if they have not yet done so. These will be collected first thing at sign-in when you arrive.
The updated welfare form can be found at: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1oPgUpTwg70ZNfvGJKPqn2Bx2hKNLV0Ixz10eH5in3G4/edit
We will be providing a locked room for valuables (out-of-character) for the weekend, but this is at your own risk. All other rooms will not be locked out-of-character as player rooms and tents are in-character areas.
VEGETARIANS AND ALLERGIES
We do expect that everyone will be responsible for their own health and well-being, and bring any medications they may need for the weekend. If you have a life threatening allergy or condition like epilepsy, please let us know so that if you are unable to communicate we are aware and can tell paramedics this in this situation.
If you have any special food requirements like being a vegetarian or any food allergies, please let us know via the registration form. We can only provide you with appropriate food if we know.
VENDORS AND MARKET
Information to come!
There will be threads for helping to organise carpooling to Camp Adair posted on the Facebook event page and on Diatribe. If you need any help organising a lift to or from the game, look here for any assistance.
While it’s natural to want to catch up with people OOC after the game end, we also need to keep in mind that we also need to vacate the camp in a timely manner. All participants are required to first pack away their personal belongings before helping tidy and clean the camp before we can leave.
There will be a volunteer from each faction in charge of getting their area clean and tidy, as well as the other game areas. The faster everybody helps clean up, the faster everybody can get to the afterlarp or hang out with their mates and compare notes.
