New Player Starting Packages!
At Fantasy Alive we understand that attending your first event at a LARP can be confusing and intimidating. The rulebook is 100+ pages dense, the players all have established allies and enemies and trying to discover your own place in the world can be difficult. So to help ease new players into the Fantasy Alive world, here are a few things we will do for you!
- Pre-Made Characters!
We’ve made up four base character builds that a new player can pick from and jump right into the game. While Fantasy Alive is a system not based in the traditional fantasy classes, we designed these characters to fit with the tropes so that new players can more easily merge their ideas in with the world of Fantasy Alive. All of these starting packages are also Human, in order to make entering game easier.
- Starting Phys-reps!
Don’t have any weapons? Shields? Armour? Costume? Not a problem! Let us know as early as you can before the event and we’ll have that all setup. We can provide:
- 1-2 Weapon Phys-reps and/or Shield
- Basic Armour
- A tabard or easy costuming
- A Holy Symbol for Clerics or Spellbook for Mages
All you need to do is bring some comfortable boots and some plain brown or black clothing and you’ll be all set for game!
(Please note that events after your first you’ll need to provide your own gear or rent some from us!)
- New Player Orientation!
Just before every event we host, we’ll ask all of your new players to come meet our some of our Player Relations Team to go through a quick crash-course on how to play the game. This will only take a little time and then should you have any questions during game, our Marshals and other players are always happy to help out!
Send in your info!
Once you’ve got all this figured out, just send in your information to Logistics (firstname.lastname@example.org) prior to an event if possible to ensure a quick entrance into the game.
Here’s a quick check-list of what you’ll need to send!
- Send base character information:
- Your real name
- Email address
- Character name
- Race (Please read note below)
- Which starting package you want to use. (Fighter, Rogue, Cleric, Mage)
- What props (or phys-reps) you would like to borrow. (Sword, holy symbol, armour, costume, etc.)
Note: If you wish to play a race other than Human on your first event, please speak to the a New Player Rep (email@example.com). They will help to explain the Class system setup in Fantasy Alive and the role-play aspects of that.
Following a new player’s first event as a character, they may choose to keep their current character or may also re-mort their character as outlined in the Fantasy Alive Rulebook on page 7. The character in either option will maintain their 30 Skill Points and also keep any XP earned from their first event.
New players are encouraged to follow our Facebook Page and join our Facebook Groups (Fantasy Alive LARP and Fantasy Alive: In Game). Our members are very friendly, and will be happy to answer any questions you might have.
We have a team dedicated to assisting our new players. They can offer assistance designing your first character, offer ideas on building or purchasing supplies such as costume, weapons, and armour, answer any questions you might have, and even help with introductions when you arrive at your first event. To contact our new player welcome team, simply send them an email at: firstname.lastname@example.org
We look forward to seeing new all your new faces at our game!
