Good Morning Wonderfolk of the World,
June has risen and the last days of Spring are upon us; another “in between events” week has been achieved and we have once again wandered through the world pushing to get things done. Always, always we hope that you are in fine form, fetlock and fettle and that you had an excellent weekend wherever you were and whatever you were doing. Before we get into what we have been up to we have a couple of things to say!
Firstly – It’s Pride Month, so Happy especially Pride June along with standardly Pride rest of the year; Over the years we have come into contact with wonderful people that support who we are and what we do be that gaming, geekery, woodland building or LARPing. Everything we do, everything, is designed to try and make the world around us a better, safer place through providing counselling, therapy, food, or calming woodland and LARP!
The people we surround ourselves with hail from various communities, collectively we belong to many of them, and they are all wonderful. Together we try and fill the world with love and a little bit of equality and happiness. From us at the Rising of Chaos and all of the teams that represent Chaos, Chicanery and Calodemon, all year round – Much Love, Much Pride.
Alongside that we also offer massive thanks for the support that comes from Patreon and the Subs to our Twitch channel. Without it we couldn’t keep churning out the content that we do and nor could we continue to offer the frontline servicefolk free games and priority bookings, make counselling available to those folk that need it and support where we can with food and the like. If you feel like you are one of the people that could benefit from what we are offering let us know.
Continuing in its new timeslot the Monday Morning Meeting will be between 10 and 11am BST 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. Have your say, ask questions and help us shape the future of what we are doing together.
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.
To the Woods!
This last week we have been phenomenally busy behind the scenes and have had no time to make it over to our beloved woods. However we will be back there before the next event that we are running there again at the end of June.
Whilst the office Kobolds have been super hard at work all week we don’t have the hugest amount to report in the world of progress. CODA is entering Phase Two of its 2022 return to the game and that means Holly has the teams combing through the playtested rules, updating the character development documents and generally getting ready to start writing up the downtime, equipment and economy mechanics for the end of year change ups when we enter the winter months.
What we can report is that the debrief for the Phantom Citadel is up and that you can find those links in the Dispatches channel over on our Discord if you haven’t seen them already. Alongside that next week’s event is entering the final prep stages for our new site over in Swindon. All the deets for how that is working will be released this Monday to the bookers and dream briefs will start to appear. We still have a few tickets left if you want to book on and you can find those here.
Stephen put out another excellent codafying episode, which you can find over on the Twitch channel for the next ten or so days and will eventually join its brethren on Youtube. This week he covered all aspects of the Chirurgical skills, what they do and why they exist, an excellent delve into the new side of those skills. This week he will be running through some of the species of the system, specifically their Lore and why they are as they are. You can catch him at 9ish AM BST on Wednesday Morning.
Finally, last Thursday we Podcasted with Mark Cordory as ever and we discussed how much larping has changed as a game in the last 40 years and we will be back to talk about more of this nonsense this week with a look at how we have seen magic develop and change, how systems have used it and what it was like for us all those years ago. That’s the Rising of Conversation at 10.30 BST on Thursday Morning.
The teams will be in and around Discord helping out those that need and generally listening to froth. If you need some of this wonderful assistance go and find them and they will see what they can do for you.
The Chicanery calendar has taken shape and there are more and more regular streamers over on the Chicanery Facebook Page.
The streaming for the International Rescue Comittee with the Chicanery for Ukrainery continues and we appreciate all of the help that you have given them. This week the set up streams go along the following lines, and more information about each stream can be found on our This Week on Chicanery page – (I’d bookmark this one, if I were you!)
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:
- Discord: https://discord.gg/G5Q9z2b
- Twitch: https://www.twitch.tv/the_rising_of_chicanery
- E-mail: Info@risingofchaos.com
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.
Take Care of Each Other
