This page is for players who have been to an Alliance game before. If you have never played, check out our New Players page first.
Check out our Logistics FAQ to find a lot of great info.
Let us know what you thought of the event by using our Feedback Form. If you submit one within 10 days after the event, you will receive 30 goblin stamps. General feedback can also always be sent to both player reps (Lauren and Anthony) directly at firstname.lastname@example.org or to the GM at email@example.com.
Accessing the character database
To view your character's current sheet, xp log, and gobbies, start by visiting the Alliance Larp forums. Log in and scroll to the bottom of the page to find a section called "Alliance Character". Select the appropriate chapter (in this case Seattle). You must be logged in to the forums for this to work. If you have any questions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
Alliance Seattle Plot will be supporting players wishing to conduct in-between game activities with their characters. We call this process the Alliance Seattle Downtime Policy.
Things you can do in downtime (you may travel to complete these):
- Research 1 topic
- Have a downtime conversation with 1 NPC played by a plot member (subject to plot member availability)
- Interact with your holdings (beyond maintenance)
Downtime Policy is summarized as follows:
- Each character may request a downtime consisting of no more than 1 action per event.
- You must have attended the prior event
- Downtimes must be submitted using the Downtime Submission Form at the bottom of this page. If the form is not functioning you can email email@example.com.
We assume basic maintenance of lands and holdings is completed unless you tell us otherwise.
- If you have a relevant Craftsman skill pertinent to your downtime action please list it.
- Please submit the downtime action for the character that will be attending the next event.
- If you plan on including other characters in your downtime, please include the names of all players and characters involved.
- If your character is involved in a group downtime with other players, you do not get a second solo downtime action.
- Group downtimes may yield more information results, depending on this topic (because you're saving the plot team the work of writing multiple downtimes!)
Here are a few FAQ and pointers on downtime submissions:
What is downtime? It's the stuff your character does between events, when you're not dealing with the exciting stuff the world seems to throw at you every two months or so. Downtime submissions can help flesh out your character, and give you insights into certain parts of the world your character inhabits. It also gives us a better idea of how your character interacts with the world at large.
How do I write up downtime? Submissions should be concise, high-level descriptions of what your character intends to do during that period, and should typically be somewhat open about the timing, to give us some flexibility. (For example, "In the next month or so, I..." is preferable to "Three days before the solstice, at 5 minutes past suppertime, I...") Feel free to include contingencies ("If this happens, I do this"), but limit yourself to 1 action as outlined above, so that we have time to get to everybody's submission.
If you are researching a topic, please realize that plot cannot write you a book however much they may want to. Try proposing questions or subtopics about your research topic. For example, if you want to know about the History of Stradyn in general, try asking "What are some important dates/events in Stradyn's history?", "What can I learn about the history of Stradyn's monarchy?" or "does anyone know how long Stradyn and Hargroth have been enemies and/or why?". Give plot a few details about your question and they will have a much easier time writing something interesting.

Feel free to amend your downtime submission at any time, to take advantage of new information that we may post on the forums from time to time, or if you suddenly had a brilliant idea.
