Here are some important notes about this weekend’s game!
Burn Ban in Effect
There is a Bell County Burn Ban in effect through September 30th. No campfires allowed. Propane stoves are fine so long as someone is present and able to step OOC to safely supervise them in the event of combat. As always, a hot stove can never be left unattended. If you need to heat food, there are ovens in Kiva and Wikiup, and microwaves in many of the buildings.
There will be paper feedback forms available on site in both the Post Office and Logistics. Use these forms throughout the weekend when you notice something you need to remark on about the new rules system, or any other feedback. This is to help capture any moment where something is a bit ambiguous or goes really well so we can review it.
The online feedback is always available here on the website.
We are a community that learns together!
There may be some confusing and even frustrating moments this weekend, but at the end of it all we’re here to laugh and learn together. The best thing to do in the moment is to find a way to work through any confusion (ask a Guide for help if you need to!) and then get back into play. There will be lots of time for feedback after the event online as well, so be kind to your fellow players and we will all be patient with each other as we get up to speed!
This is a reminder to download the most recent rulebook link posted in August here. The most up-to-date version is called “DRELARP_Edit_10” but might show up for some as “Blueprint_Catalog.pdf” on the downloads page, so check that you have the right version!
We’re going to try and keep the lines moving as fast as we can in Logistics this game but it’s likely to get a bit crowded, so please be patient and we’ll help you as fast as we can!
And now the moment you’ve been waiting for…
Check in is now live!
Please read the following carefully!
Make sure when you select your ticket type and shift that you are selecting the same price that you paid during pre-reg. You can find your receipt in your email if you’re unsure.
If you are paying at the door, your options are:
$65 Standard Casting (4hrs)
$35 10 Hour Pass (2hrs)
$35 First Event/New Player (4hrs)
If you are a Guide or another special sort of shift (like our setup crew), we will check you in manually, so don’t worry about it! If you do not see the type of ticket you need, then also contact us and we can handle it.
There are a few small errors that you might encounter while checking in. This is a database under construction, so if it doesn’t work the first time, try again! And if it still is giving you some weirdness, then screenshot it and send it to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
When you show up for your NPC shift on site, check in with the Guides on desk and they will check you in. The same goes for when you leave your shift. If you are a full-time NPC there is a check-in log you will sign in on in Logistics and we will handle your check-in at the door.

Crafting Stations open to Community props
We got a few questions about this so… Have extra props that you want to use at the in-character Crafting/Artisan, Cooking/Brewing, or Agricultural/Farming workstations? Feel free to bring your own props to augment what we’ll have out. Because these are communal workstations, everyone is welcome to contribute. Note: unless you are donating them to the game, be prepared to take your props home/store them with you between games as our storage space is limited. If you are donating, talk to us in Logistics so we know! Thanks!
Pre-reg for October’s PREMIERE event will go live on Tuesday, October 1st at 1:00pm.
Mark your calendars!
Reminder that you can always see our recent announcements and other info in the ‘Updates and News’ button at the top of this site!
