What a great week in LARP! Many happenings furthered the craft this last weekend and here is the info all were seeking... well not really but it is a good overview anyway.
First, lets take a look at the Bucky Boot Review. During a previous game we got to see how a $20 boot lasts only a mere hours before shredding apart. Like most things in life, you get what you pay for. Buying the right LARP gear over the cheap alliterative can save players from buying right after the cheap items fail.
Next, we had the chance to update our playbook rules which changed the following: http://www.larpcraft.com/forums/index.php?threads/changes-to-bleed-out-and-final-blow.989/#post-2752
After much discussion on our last game trip we have decided that we are going to take out final blow as the main killing strike. However the gesture can still be played out. This will make killing easier to play, teach and act out.
Don't want to read all this? No prob here is a sum up:
- No Death Blow. Strike someone bleeding out and they now die.
- Get loot and band right after death. No deathblow needed
- Graveyards being put back into play for those with bands on them.
- Can carry 5 bands max. Turn rest into healer or village for coin.
- Resurrection bands are now solid white (yes, even for undead)..
However DO NOT GET UP right away! Your spirit still lingers around your body as long as you stay dead on that spot. This means you can be revived/healed from others who have the skills but once you get up, you're a goner.
For the simplicity of not walking 10 miles back to town after you die, we will bring the graveyards back in for those who have life bands left. So if you have your own bands walk to the graveyard with weapon above your head and sit at the graveyard for a few minutes to come back into play. You can't just touch the graveyard and rush back into play. unless you are healed by someone you cannot re-join a small battle even after running to and from a graveyard. You had your chance... be sure to have a healer next time.
Once your life bands are gone, you will need to find someone who can res you / give you life bands. Resurrection bands are going to be solid white and will have to be on your belt or wrist in order to play if you lost all your other bands. The max amount of bands you can have on yourself at any one time are five bands. If you kill someone with a white band and it is the only band they have it is considered unsportsmanlike unless they attacked you first.
Game Review - Wilarp on 11.14.11
Weather, undead and now a strange plague seems to be in the land of Maywood. The village is heart-strong and was able to fend off the evil of the land last time.
As the weather is getting colder, many of Maywood fear their ability to fight off the creatures of the night but now Maywood is seeing some skilled characters using their new abilities to fend off those who try and attack the little village.
There are reports of the this odd plague already in Maywood. Be careful and have a keen eye for things like black eyes, slow movements, confusion... these are the reported signs of this unknown plague.
While the undead have been pushed far back into the realm, there have been reports of a band of kinghts who have broken free of their king and are looking to claim land in Maywood. This cannot be allowed to happen and any who see these knights are to report them. Be careful as they may say you are on their lands but fear no as they have no claims in Maywood, but be aware they are highly trained and may attack you.
Much of the story this day cannot be told... it will unfold as you live the adventure!
Gameplay was great, the weather held out and we had another glorious weekend of adventure.
