Valders - May 6th-7th Woodlands of Esker weekend game. Friday the 5th Setup 6pm - Midnight. Clearsky Village Orientation and Social: 8pm - Midnight.

Join us for the exciting May season opener of our weekend long Myths & Legends LARP events for 2017! Enjoy adventure, battle, questing and stories as we seek to continue character development! There is much to celebrate in the Woodlands of Esker as we come into the Spring. The woods are coming alive with forest floor flowers, woodland creatures and player camaraderie sure to leave you smiling!

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.

    When it comes to coins and mats, are those provided by the hosts or does the player bring them? If you don't have the coins or mats what is suggested you bring?

    I'll be cooking bacon and eggs at the Iron Ring camp each morning and will likely have some chili or soup and sandwiches as well Saturday night... might integrate that into whatever the King is doing for a bigger feast on Saturday night.

    Dancing? ;)

    During pre-registration, you'll be able to put in how much of your coin and mats you want so we can have it ready for you before the event. At this time, the vault will take the coins and mats from your account as they will be physically represented in your pre-registration loot bag.

    I have a question regarding the camping situation at Esker. If we have a modern tent are we allowed to camp in the in-game areas? Or is in-game relegated to decorum tenting only?

    The event is the weekend of Sharon's birthday so she really wants to go. I'm just not sure if I can pull together decorum sleeping arrangements in time. The Larp Market used to have listings for used tents, and I was very interested in those since they looked like a good deal. But I can't find them listed anymore.

    i am trying to fiond a dance master that might teach us in the traditions of the ball. I have not attendend many in my travels, so this is beyond my wheelhouse. But my daughter wishes a ball, and i am trying to make that happen.

    IF it is ameniable to those in attendence i would ask Ralik to teach us the fine game of sheep ball as well as prehaps some other festivities. It would also be a fine time to begin fortifying the areas of the village

    Mal if you need a tent i think we can help you find a place to sleep in the in game area.

    If there is a place to safely store it i could bring the Inn to the site so that we can set it up and use it for the season? We "rented rooms "for in game currency at world one year and could do so again.

    The idea of dancing sounds wonderful. Folk dancing or otherwise. I haven't had experience with that in a long time, but I do know there are a few dances that aren't that hard to pick up. At least no worse than line dancing.

    That would be amazing. I know the girls would really like to stay someplace where the "action was happening" and didn't have to walk so much back and forth. And I would be more than happy to tend the pot a little bit and make sure we had a big pot of stew or something for the community.
