“A prince, therefore, being compelled knowingly to adopt the beast, ought to choose the fox and the lion; because the lion cannot defend himself against snares and the fox cannot defend himself against wolves. Therefore, it is necessary to be a fox to discover the snares and a lion to terrify the wolves.”
- Niccolo Macchiavelli
In Game Description
Plummeting through the bowels of darkness, wafts of umbra essence reveal a glimmering echo. Yourself, or an interpretation thereof, leering its gaze upon you. Your apparition dawns a rictus grin, unmoving. Meanwhile, distant whispers encroach into your psyche;
Hark! Ye mortals, hear the bell. Its mighty toll. Thou time of life shall be no more. Mass of blazing day falls away into stygian darkness once more. Yonder arched expanse of heavens gate. Hark the Angel, hark the Angel swells the solemn summons sound.
See the purple banner flying, hear the chariot of judgment roll. Hear your saviours words of Mercy, ask for none. Hurled in countless number downward, see in wild disorder driven. Tortured with despair and anguish. Left without safe haven. HOW TREMENDOUS, how tremendous, sounds their last decisive doom.
In black athame, lo, he comes! He shakes the earth, and clears the tombs. Before him burns devouring desire, the mountains melt, the seas retire. Deep are his counsels, long unknown; his grace of truth support his throne; rejoice, share in misanthropy, and record. The sacred honors of an orb.
Yet these souls that Arthos despise, in such a way do they move. Like dancers through filth and torrent. Prisoners, pawns and paupers. The Lords, their Knights and misbegotten daughters. See the actors have taken their places. Here a Mummer sits hardly sated. The time of harvest, long awaited. Favor, Flesh and Bone.
Hush now, the curtains open, a dramatic pause! The final act is written in blood. For some, a final applause.
Then, through darkness, falling…
Out of Game Information
Warning: This weekend will be gore active. Meaning we will not be giving warning before a scene happens. This doesn’t mean we will spam you with buckets of blood but we will be incorporating liquid effects throughout the weekend.
Event NPC: You require GM approval to event NPC.
Weather: Low temperatures with possibility of showers throughout the weekend.
Fire pits: Players are responsible to maintain their own fires and have a method of extinguishing said fire.
(ie. fire extinguisher, bucket of water, etc)
No vehicles will be allowed past the regular parking area due to difficulty in the soft terrain
(No driving in the field).
All cars must be returned to the main parking area by 9pm Friday night.
(Parking is between the road and NPC camp)
Washrooms: Please treat our units with respect and not leave them a mess. No foreign objects are allowed to be disposed of in the porta potties. Paper tower goes into the bin (if there is one) and toilet paper in the toilet. Nothing else is allowed.
Pumpkin Carving Contest: As per Hallows tradition there will be a pumpkin carving contest. You will have until Saturday morning to leave a carved pumpkin at the tavern. Write your PC name on, beside or attached to your submitted pumpkin. The winner will receive a magical item. Keep your carvings in game, infernal pumpkins will be smashed and billow forth black smoke.
Loot Bags: Anyone attending the event in person will be granted the opportunity to acquire a goodie bag with in game and out of game items. First come, first served. Candy will be available on the side. Peanut and gluten free options will be available.
If your tags have expired after March 2020:
~Weapons: Some of these do not have an expiry date written on the tag, they have the date of creation listed, then you add 2-5 years based on the type of weapon. Normal weapons expire 2 years after creation for example.
Our desire for simplicity is to your benefit here. All Mournfall weapon tags created before March 2020 will have 2 years added to their standard expiry date. We will not be rewriting weapon tags.
~Magic Items, Artifice, Any other special item tag with an expiry: These not-so-mundane items WILL require a tag rewrite. Their expiration dates will be extended by 1 year and 6 months to represent the time lost.
PLEASE email logistics ahead of time with the details of your tag, or better yet, snap a picture and send that in. This will allow us to prepare the new tag ahead of time so it's ready for the first event you attend. If you fail to do so, you will have to come see us in NPC camp to get the tag rewritten and be at the mercy of how busy Chris is at the time.
~Effects on Spirit: If you have a ritual effect or other effect on your spirit this should be listed on your character sheet. Because of this, you MUST email logistics to get the expiration date adjusted. We will not be doing this at game because it needs to be reflected on the database.
~Other: Did we miss something? Have some weird RP thing that you are unsure about? Email logistics and let us know and we'll figure it out!
We should be coming to an end of this extension. We'll be retracting this section after this year's season.
Tags will be rewritten, please email logistics with photo's of your tags to be replaced.
Locks will state external or internal on the tag.
Legendary items will be written with a due date. Effect creation date will be set as the rule change: May 2023. Expiry will be based off this date.
If you have not already, read and sign our waiver before attending a Mournfall Game. If you have already filled one out, please do not resubmit a waiver unless your medical information has changed.
