Good Morning Wonderfolk of the World,

A little later than usual but here we are at the start of February and we are back from the middle of Hampshire where we have put on a stonkingly good event, the first of many for our twenty fifth anniversary. We’ll come to all of that shortly but beforehand: We hope that we find you in fine form, fetlock and fettle and that you had the best week that you could wherever you were and whatever you were doing. 

Before we get into everything else we would also like to say that the frontline emergency services remain as ever in our thoughts as do so many others and one day we hope to extend this offer to the likes of teachers and other worthies! We continue to offer free games and priority bookings to our upcoming games – just prod us via e-mails for details and we’ll sort you out.

Alongside that we push our resources into offering limited counselling with some seriously good professional help through the dedication of our own hard work, patreons and the streams that we run. If you think that can help you please get in touch and we will get you on the list as the last of the current spaces are being picked up as we speak.

So! Monday Mornings we have expanded our original message to include all the iterations of the Rising: Focussing on the LARP aspect of Chaos but also rolling in Chicanery for other games and streaming, Community for feeding people and getting them Therapy, Countryside for Land Updates and Creativity for makers, crafters, workshop and socks.

If you want MORE of this nonsense or don’t want to read all of this you can catch us every Monday Morning between 8.45 and 10am on Twitch as team members meet up to discuss the plans of the week, the month and generally natter. They will even talk to you too if you ask them questions – That’s here on Monday Mornings.

Regardless: Each of our Rising sections are covered by our various organisers who you can contact and talk to via our Discord Server or just a straightforward e-mail.

So!

The Rising

The new land is growing: Our neighbours have agreed to help us build a stable entryway into our site, the fields next door seem happy for access to be granted and the last details of land two are happening. We hope to be providing you with images and updates of what is happening in the next few weeks so that’s exciting.

The Rising of Chaos: CODA

What a week and what an event! Last week the system provided the brand new updates for the mechanics of the game and they were tremendously well received which led us merrily into a weekend of eventing. 

We were trying to capture and emulate a standard weekend of event as one might have found in the olden times; Action and adventure along with story development and plenty of battling. This time however we married it up with a massive hall, bell tents and lashings and lashings of politics all with a new team of refs, storytelling and willing DPC’s. The results were excellent and came with a full house of cast, props, chuckles and heroism as the players welcomed a new era of the game.

We still have a ways to go to reach our full potential and there should always be room for improvement. If you want to join us chatting about the game we will be hosting a froth stream on Wednesday night on our Twitch channel and a full IC and OOC report will be hot on its heels in a similar format. There are already player appreciation posts appearing and you can expect some from us in the coming days too.

Along with all of this excitement you can expect some updates to character creation, backlash and wound cards and the expansion of the cerebration devices before the next event (whose dates we will throw at you soon). We will get working on those and if you were at the event we will give shining stars to you to fill in a questionnaire regarding how you found the new format and how we can improve.


CHICANERY – Lots going on there too!

Chicanery is massively improving with what looks like daily streams soon; last week we managed an interview with PJ Coffey and have helped them reach their kickstarting targets for an excellent 5E advanced project:  https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/49409452/homebrew-and-hacking-crafting-new-heritages-and-cultures 

Along with that we kicked out a superb retro games stream, plenty of larping and crafting content and a beautifully read Friday Night bedtime story. This week is no exception with our monthly Star Wars game kicking us off this week although Stephen may well be broadcasting from an unusual location this week!!!

Yes, this is Craig’s Ear.

Ok – So  that’s the week in a nutshell: It looks like the world may well be a hard place to be in at the moment so with that in mind we will be trying to keep the office manned as much as possible on Discord. If you need people, company, nonsense or an ear please feel free to come and find us. 

You can find us easily enough:

Till the next time we talk: Have a Foxes and Crows week people, we look forward to seeing all of you somewhere in the world whether that be in the woods or on Discord. 

Much Love

Take Care of Each Other

Team RoC
