July 22nd Weekend Regional At Esker

The community for all LarpCraft chapter in and around Wisconsin.

Valders - July 22nd - 23rd Woodlands of Esker weekend game.
Friday the 21st Setup 6pm - Midnight. Clearsky Village Orientation and Social: 8pm - Midnight.
Join us for the exciting July weekend long Myths & Legends LARP events for 2017! Enjoy adventure, battle, questing and stories as we seek to continue character development!
This event is held rain or shine. While it's common we get rain during games, it's uncommon that it lasts all weekend.
Costs:
$40/weekend entry non member (10 prize tickets)
$30/weekend Epic, Legendary or Mythic Member (15 prize tickets)
50% off additional family members living in the same household. (5 prize tickets per person)
Saturday Only Price - $20 no discounts. (5 prize tickets)
This is a Regional Event co-promoted between Larpcraft of Milwaukee, Sheboygan, Green Bay and Wisconsin Rapids (maybe more). As such, this event is worth prestige.
If you've never played before you MUST come to the Friday Night orientation in Clearsky village.
Food: This is provided by the cooks in-game. Most will have a donation jar which you are expected to contribute to if you'l be eating their food. We'll provide water and some basic foods but no meals. This keeps the event entry as low as possible while encouraging in-game cooking by the players. If you want to set up an Inn or pub, post below what you plan to offer and when you plan on being open.
Cabin Bunks
If you wish to stay in the cabins, the cost is $10 per bunk per night. When we have enough to fill a cabin, we rent it from the camp. While you can roleplay in the cabin area, the cabins are on the modern side of the camp and thus, we don't set up anything over there. Cabins are mainly out of game.
Our setup begins Friday the 5th at 6pm and goes until Midnight. You can drive your vehicle (rain permitting) to the campgrounds (5mph max please) once you've checked in with an Elder in Clearsky Village. Once you're set up, please remove your vehicle from the game area and park it in our newly redone parking lot across the road.
It is advised that you set up your tent at Clearsky Village. It's where most of the action is set up, where the fire stays going all weekend long and where much of the shops and food lives. If you set up camp in one of the remote camps, you may not have as much fun. Clearsky Village is protected by the Iron Griffon Legion under the rule of King Murdoch McArthur. This kingdom does its best to protect the characters of the realm, it is not a hostile kingdom by any means.
If you do venture outside the main village, you'll be required to follow the rules.
Camp Setup Rules:
Each camp is equipped with a campfire area. If you are going to have fires in your camp, you must have a fire extinguisher next to it. You are allowed to pick up brush on the ground to burn but the forest floor is usually damp so bring your own wood as we have a limited supply.
Pick up any sticks or brush that may puncture your tent bottom. Look up for broken branches that may fall on you with the wind. Don't set up a tent in areas that are unsafe.
You are required to keep all modern looking items inside your tent (which is out of game). Keep game items such as coin, quest items, etc. In an approved Loot Chest that is to be within 1 pace of your dwelling (can be hidden, trapped, etc. but not buried).
No alcohol can be consumed while playing. We highly discourage alcohol use during the game but we do have a social hour Friday night for such activity before Sat game on. No underage consumption. Everyone is banded. Bring ID. Cops are called if the law is broken, we don't mess around.
We only treat for bugs in Clearsky Village. You can lay bug stuff in your camp before setting up your tents if you wish and it's safe.
Bring TP. We have outhouses in the woods but the animals usually end up taking the TP between games.
Friday Night
The campfire usually kicks off aorund 6-7pm and music begins around dusk. Food and refreshments are usually brought by many so bring a dish to pass. We're in garb at this point and usually tell stories, spar and goof around. Friday nights are a blast.
Saturday Morning
Game on at 9am, sometimes before but for sure by 9am. We play all through the night. If you're sleeping in your tent you're out of game but don't duck into your tent to avoid being killed.
Tournaments: Times To Be Determined

Game off is usually around noon and this is where cars are allowed to come back in to pack up. Please help people clean up, you get big bonus points for that.
Prizes - To Be Determined

    So we have 3 people saying they are going and 24 interested. That is not enough to host an event. If we don't have more interest, we'll have to forgo the July and August game dates.
    While some larp groups are fine with 10-20 person games, our system is built with players are the main focus of what happens and as such, without the players the games don't have enough characters to perform the tasks that makes all the activities work. We want to see 50-100 people at games so that the characters have the choices to do things that make this thing fun!
    There is no way to pay site fees, insurance and food expenses if we don't have players willing to come to games. Between competing with other larps and so many other things people can do in summer, low turnout will transform this back to playing at free parks for a few hours instead of rocking it over entire weekends at private camps and locations. The choice is up to the players.

    It's between going on a trip to Arkansas where Carl's family lives. But considering I'm on the outs with his sister I'm considering going to Esker!

    Please folks, it's Eskers for goodness sakes. I've heard so many stories...Make me a memory!

    I want what I wanted when I came to the coronation. I want medieval music, and oportunity to dance, even if it's not 'proper'. I want a roaring fire hot cider and cold ale! The oportunity to turn it different colors with my characters 'magic' (just a powder bought in walmart) and see delighted faces. Longing eyes, a kiss on a ring, ROMANCEROMANCEROMANCE! Comradery in the face of danger. Intrigue! Politics between Norhaven, the mysterious Jarl and the Dwarven Freehold! I've got a taste of Larping and it feels like I'll dry up and blow away if I don't have it.
    ...I need your posts and your RP and I'm sorry but I'm whining.

Songs to be sung. horns and mugs to be lifted with good friends new and old. goddess willing we might have a drummer in the area hiding

    We do have at least one drummer! He performed during the magic-combat tournament. At least we could all be online at the same time! A few web cams and dress in our fancies and we can at least gather round a feasting table! Let's get our creative juices going and see what all of us working as one can do! Practice weekends are great but our group is too small, we're just getting started and it is all we can do to make it to Eskers. What if we make use of cameras (G rated of course!) *Plays Bruce Springsting's Dancin in the Dark.*

    It would be bad to open a chapter in WI and suddenly up and move it to MO.

    As i liked MO on the drive down there...

    So don't do that. Carl will cry and we don't want to make Carl cry.

    Sadly I am also unable to effect rescues, even damsels in distress so lets keep the need for them in character.

    Let us first all secure a web cam and someone will have to walk me through Skype or whatever we decide to use. Let's take this one step at a time and make no spur of the moment decisions that can have long term implications. After all, it's only the 25 of June and we have lots of time. We are widening our membership and I think I have ideas that can expand it further. Jusk keep an open mind and don't scare me off. The only stupid questions are the ones never asked, right?
