June 2018 Photo Contest

We are pleased to announce that we will be holding a photo contest for pictures taken at our event from June 8th to 10th. There will be four categories to submit photos for, with first, second, and third place prizes for each category. Anyone can participate! More details below!

Not interested in taking pictures? You can still help by putting extra effort into your costume and keeping in-game areas tidy.

The Rules
1. Please only submit photos that you have personally taken.
2. Try to limit interruptions to game play or immersion.
3. Feel free to stage your shots! That’s not cheating!
4. Subjects in the photos may be PC or NPC but not anyone who has not signed the release form (everyone has signed one before they were allowed to play) - so no shots of rangers, strangers, or children under the age of 10. 
5. There is not a specific rubric for the selection of the best photos, the plot team will be using their discretion to make these decisions. However, a few things to keep in mind would be: make sure your subject is in focus, keep anachronisms out of in-game shots, use the best resolution possible, and try to compose your shot with your viewer in mind (does it look cool? Would YOU put it on the website?).
6. Submit as many photos as you want.

The Categories
1. Best Action Shot: we’re looking for great examples of LARPing in action. This could be anything from an individual or small group to an entire field battle, as long as it’s exciting!
2. Best Portrait: Photos of just one person. 
3. Best Group Portrait: Have a rag-tag band of misfits? Great! Maybe everyone in your house has matching belt favors to show off. Also great! What if we got like a bunch of members of the same race together? Still great! If it’s a group of people posing for a photo then it’s a Group Portrait.
4. Best Daily Life: Did you take a really great photo but it didn’t exactly fit into the other categories? It’s Daily Life! We’re looking for shots that encapsulate the experiences of a LARPer, whether it’s chillin’ in the tavern, getting suited up for a fight in monster camp, checking in at logistics, or doing something else we haven’t thought of. Surprise us!

Behold the Downtime Submission Form

Please submit your downtime actions via our shiny new form located at the bottom of the Returning Players page. This form will ensure that no more emails end up trapped in our spam folder.

 

We have a brand new website!

Welcome to our new website, we hope you like it! While you get to know your way around, we've put some popular links below. Some pages and features may still be under construction, so please bear with us and check back periodically. Setting info will be updated as it is discovered in-game (how exciting!).
