Hello Super Cool People of the Twenty First Century!
Welcome to the RoC Monday Morning Message: We hope that this message finds you in fine form, fetlock and fettle and that you have had the best weekend that you can wherever you were and whatever you were doing. Phwoar and Crikey but we have been busy planning kit fayres, writing events and wiki’ing away on the website but before we get to that:
So much love and thanks to all of the people battling to keep our world in some form of “one piece”, all of the trained professionals battling sickness and keeping us as safe as we can be as well as all the people out there protesting the atrocities that crash against our society. We are right here with all of you. Here we underline again that the events that we are running have priority and free games for frontline ambulance staff at the moment with more to follow and that we are supporting the community with counselling slots.
Ok – Let’s look at where we are with the rest of RoC starting with the LARPing Side of things
RoC’s first event of 2021 is up and published, its’ filling up fast which is a little bit exciting mainly because we will be out in the woods.
We cannot wait at all!
To support that the website is churning out more and more background to support the new system and burning through the character rebuilds and we are having a keen to get the new characters, as there are so many new players, into our Discord to get a full on background and build done!
Plot team meetings have been animated, new kit is being ordered AND we are hyped to be announcing the second event this week. Oh gosh and we are even looking at a massive site after July – So much new stuff.
What we will also be plugging this week is the Kit Fayre that we accidentally created! We needed to sort out RoC tremendous amount of kit and hired a hall to do it in which led to people wanting to come along and asking if they could swap kit/trade kit etc so now we have escalated into something else. Full details will be evolving here over the week and we will be posting a lot about it on our channels:
But in a nutshell we will be running the following:
Swap Shop and Sale Tables
These are for LARP kit AND all things geek, like books and games or DVD’s and whatnot.
- ROC Table – As we sort we will add stuff to this table to either giveaway or part with for a small cost depending on what we have.
- Loved Kit Table – If you just want to put stuff down for other people to take you can
- Sell my stuff table – Let us know you want to sell stuff and we’ll sort you out with space
- With the policy “Give what you want, Take what you need” we will have food, clothes and other bits and pieces for people if they need it. You don’t have to give anything but we know that can feel weird, we also know how hard it is to get permissions to use food banks, which we also support, so….
- If you want to rock up and drop stuff off please contact us for policies.
- Our RoC bakers will have cakes and the like and you can contact them if you want to join in
- I have heard that there may be bake off competition style thing but we’ll let you know.
Miniature Painting, Face Painting, Photo Opps!
- We will have one of our expert painters doing a demo
- We will have a facepainter on standby should children of any age want their faces done up
- We will also have the opp for photos in kit or cosplay
- A Formula De Race with Prize!
- Cockroach Poker
And so much more than this in a Covid Safe environment – Go look at the page and if you have any questions just e-mail them to us. Especially if you want to join in.
Gary the Pirate
To get you in the mood for the weekend we will be kicking it off in style if you fancy an alternative to the football with our Monthly stories by Gary the Pirate who will be telling us the tale of Thor’s fishing trip and then what happened when Reason and Fortune met on a bridge. All this followed by the second branch of the Mabinogi; with extreme ill manners, the cauldron of rebirth and when Pryderi goes to war. All this on Friday 18th June at 8pm.
It’s going to be a busy week with lots of updates we have no doubt…
Remember if you want to get involved, tell stories, play games, run games or whatever we are continuing to build that community and you can find us here and that goes doubly for anything you need for the LARP or just for company on long locked in days. Equally If you want to join us on Patreon we are here.
As ever folks: If you need us, for any reason, let us know and if we can help in any way we will, whatever you are up against.
In the meantime have a Foxes and Crows week people, we look forward to seeing a whole bunch of you at the online game and bumping into even more of you, online, between now and then.
Take Care of Each Other
