New Player Information

We know there's a lot to figure out when you're getting started, especially if this is the first time you've LARPed.  This page has information to help you get started, and some premade characters you can choose from. 

We will also lend you a few pieces of gear to help you get started  For your first event, we can lend you a weapon, a holy symbol for a cleric and a simple costume.  Please let us know if you would like to borrow anything from us. After your first game, we're able to rent out gear for $10.00 per event.

We don't have a specific class system at Fantasy Alive.  The ability to purchase skills, and any adjustments to the cost, is determined by the race you select. For your first event, we suggest selecting Human. 

There are four different pre-made options.  We've named them after four of the most notable class archetypes - Cleric, Fighter, Mage and Rogue.
