Warcry General Information

* There is no such thing as "Visiting" character for this event. ALL players are to prelog whichever character they plan to play through their home guild database.

* Prelog only ONCE, through ONE guild, as the character you intend to play. Weekend NPCs are to prelog through Kalidor’s database

* ALL characters will receive production, craftsman, etc., as if you were attending a home guild event.

* You may not begin to set up camp until AFTER you go through logistics. At logistics you will be shown a map of the site and informed where you may camp. Note: Logistics opens at 5pm on August 4, the earlier you log the earlier you may set up camp!

* NPC Shifts are MANDATORY for WARCRY. If you wish to opt out, the fee is $10 and may be paid by the same methods described above. You may not pay frags to opt out. 

*Any players who sign up for two NPC shifts through the database will only receive frags for one NPC shift.

* Players wishing to NPC for the entire weekend do not need to wait three events - if you've PCed at Underworld before, you can NPC!

* If you are a brand new player to Underworld LARP and do not have a home guild, contact uw.warcry@gmail.com  and they will help you get set up.

* Additionally, you MUST e-mail uw.warcry@gmail.com if you:

** have any "unusual" magical effects on their spirit (you know who you are)
** have any Ritual effects on spirit.
** have any magically-created items (including items from the GoFundMe fundraiser)
** have any magic items you’re bringing with you.
** have any items crafted from advanced skills (e.g. rituals, chemistry, blacksmithing)
** are a race not in the core rulebook, soul frag book or appendix

If you are not sure, e-mail uw.warcry@gmail.com anyway and ask. It is better to ask now than find out your contingency item is actually not working at Warcry. Approved items will be recorded and a list given to the shaper team.

Waiver

The Warcry waiver can be found here:

http://www.talltalegaming.com/warcry-waiver.html

The waiver MUST be signed for you to be able to participate at the event.

General Logistics Notes

Any changes you make in the database while prelogging will be reverted back if you do not attend an event you have prelogged for. This is built into the database itself and it will automatically delete your changes if you are not on the attendance list. If you choose to prepay, ALL changes, including spent pp, will be saved, even if you do not pick up you envelop.

Please keep in mind that if you hit "Reset" to reset your changes you've made, it also clears that you've prelogged! Make sure you select which character you are coming to game with and hit prelog again!

If you do not have your password you can reset it by going to http://underworldlarp.ca/logistics/passwordReset.php and entering your email address to have a password reset link sent to you.

Please check your SPAM folder if it doesn't arrive shortly after you click Submit.

If you are a new player thinking of coming to this event, please e-mail us at uw.warcry@gmail.com! While we can process you if you just show up, it is 100 times faster and easier for you and us if you e-mail us to give us a heads up!

When in doubt, prelog anyway!

Prelogging helps not only the logistics team, but the Players also, it makes for faster lines, and happier people all around. If you do not prelog, you will be subjected to a $5 fee and to wait until there is someone to spare who can log you in. It could be a LONG wait. PLEASE PRELOG.


Added July 25th:


*Any players prelogging to Pay-No-Play must sign up for the Pay-No-Play shift. Players intending to Pay-No-Play are not required to pay the $10 Opt Out fee.

*Do not sign up for more than one NPC shift. The database only opens up one shift per player and with the Opt Out and Pay-No-Play shifts ALL players are required to sign up for a shift. You may inquire into taking a second shift at plot camp on the morning of August 5th.

*All in game items and tags must be carried into game. Please have all your IG items and tags with you for announcements and game start at 10:30pm August 4th.

Added July 30th:

*If you do not sign up for an NPC shift, the Opt Out shift or the Pay-No-Play shift it will result in extra work for the logistics team. To compensate for this you will be required to pay a $10 processing fee in order to receive your blankets for the weekend (this is in addition to any other required fees).

Warcry is a 4-day event and production skills will receive PP as such, correct?

Is it possible to pay for the event, and then apply blankets on characters in 2 different guilds?

Ex: I have character A in Kalidor, and Character B in Zenithstrand. I pay, prelog, apply 2 blankets, and attend with Character B. Can i still blanket Character A as well

Cory: No, you may only prelog in one guild. So you will be unable to blanket a character from another guild.

Update: I prelogged and found myself with 3 days of PP, not 4. Is this an error? If so, who should I speak to about having it corrected?

Normal events provide 2 days of production. Long weekends add an extra day. Is that what you're referring to?

Yes, though I asked earlier in this thread if it was considered a FOUR-day event. Did I just misunderstand?

There's a bit of a disconnect between what players call the events and what the db knows them as. Long weekends seem to be called "4 days" by players because they go Fri-Sat-Sun-Mon or similar. But based on game rules for such things as daily resets, the database knows them as 2 and 3 day events.

So yes - the DB will give out extra production for Warcry as it's a long weekend, an extra day. But not 4 days according to the database.
