July 2018 Possum Trot Pre Game Announcements

Payment
As is traditional, the money hole is open here and will accept tribute until game: https://squareup.com/market/freestyle-science
Game is $75 for returning players, $60 for new players. (The payment link states $65 on Square. This is because food is $10 for the weekend. Do not panic.) If you are a new player, or if you are driving more than 300 miles to site, please contact us at staff@aftertheendlarp.com for a discount code.


Food
If you are a new player and haven’t completed the food allergy form, please do so here: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIp ... g/viewform
Food for the weekend is $10 and is covered in the costs listed above, but make sure to select it so the money hole knows.


Game On/Game Off
This is a privately owned site, so feel free to show up any time after 12 to get a feel for the layout. From 4 PM on, the Saloon will be an area for soft RP for returning players. If you want to unwind and chat with friends OOP, we ask that you do that outside of the Saloon.
Opening ceremonies will be at 11 PM to give everyone time to get to site, and ‘official’ content will start after that. Game off will be at 3 PM on Sunday, with us aiming to be off-site by 4 PM.


Parking
When you arrive at site, please park in the open field in front of the barn. It will likely rain a little this weekend, so keep that in mind while selecting a spot.


New Players
If you are a new player and have not yet submitted a character, please do so soon. We can help you build one if you need assistance, too! Your newbie module will be occurring directly after opening ceremonies. We will be conducting a safety briefing and rules discussion (if needed) in MT before opening ceremonies for you.


Sleep and Business SetupThe Saloons and most cabins will be PC areas, so there’s plenty of beds to choose from. If you need a quiet area to sleep or other medical considerations, please contact us. If you are running a business, please contact us for location selection. All rooms have mattresses and blankets, though we advise you bring a light sheet if you run hot, as the blankets can be warm.


Ars Armandi
This game uses Ars Armandi as an abstract for intimate physical contact between characters. If you wish to participate in Ars Armandi, you must be certified. No exceptions. Staff will be available for certification before and after opening ceremonies.


Weather
Highs will be in the mid-80s, and lows in the mid-60s. There is a 50% chance of rain on Saturday and a much lower chance of rain on Sunday. Bring mud-capable shoes just in case!


Drinking Policy
As this is a privately owned site, and we are a western game, we will be allowing drinking during non-combat hours (between 1 AM and 9 AM) in moderation. You must bring your own drinks; there will be no drinks provided by staff. All alcohol is to be stored behind the bar when not in use. No players under 21 will be permitted to drink under any circumstances, and no players should drink to the point of compromised judgement. You are responsible for all of your actions whether drinking or not, and abuse of this policy will result in immediate disciplinary action. Drinking is not permitted anywhere except the bar area. If you have any health concerns regarding exposure to alcohol please contact Staff so we can ensure that game will be safe and enjoyable for everyone involved.
You do not need to use an Indulgence to represent your drink unless you would like the IP benefit of such, as it will not otherwise grant any benefits.


Discord Server
We have a Discord server! You can join it here: https://discord.gg/UDhK53v
There is an IP channel as well as places for OOP discussion/questions. We recommend you download the app before game if your phone is capable.


Material Representation Policy
As a reminder, we have a distinction between materials that are just tags, and materials that have phys-reps. As this policy has not been stringently enforced in the past, for this game, and this game only, we will be bringing a large selection of appropriate phys reps to game. Players may claim up to 10 units worth of phys reps from this selection to keep. The policy can be found here: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1GHG ... nrak2a94s3


Gun Paint Policy
Please remember that if your gun has a Quality, it MUST be painted. Please feel free to reach out to the community if you need help.


Nerf Guns/Ammo Policy
AtE allows non-modded, single-fire clip- or revolver-style NERF guns. If you have any questions about your gun’s legality, please contact us via email or the Discord. We encourage you to paint your guns but that should not be looked at as a barrier -- only guns with Qualities are required to be painted. Included in the price of your game is a small fee to cover darts, which are purchased and maintained by staff. We ask that players avoid bringing or purchasing their own personal darts for games unless they use custom ammo (and even then, we can order some for you, so please contact us) and instead avail themselves of a communal ammo bucket we will be supplying. There will be one in the Saloon and one in MT. If you have any questions regarding Ammo Bucket Logistics (TM) please email us.
