05/11/2018 - Post Chapter 1 Changes

Next Event

  • Updated main page for Chapter 2
  • Updated Next Event page for Chapter 2 and new site at Huntley Wood

Event Logistics

  • Added TOM Desk description to Events: this is designed to make it easier to find a Ref for queries in a consistent location.
  • Time in is at 9.30am now
  • More print-outs of information will be available
  • More lighting will be available

Defining Moments

  • Updated Defining Moments to clarify that that Players can recommend their own Defining Moments
  • Changed rules on Defining Moments - Defining Moments no longer must be sealed and when presented can be asked to be read aloud. Any existing Defining Moments from Chapter 1 may be opened and read by their owners at their leisure
  • We will be working to make sure that Defining Moments come out with more regularity
  • We are also looking at adding more avenues to spend Defining Moments but aren't ready to release those yet.


  • The deleterious effect from Curses will now apply at the start of an Event in which they are active, rather than occurring immediately.


  • Quests locations will be well defined on the Conquest board from the start of the Event. Some will be dark-only Quests and these will be clearly marked
  • The Wanderer skill now allows Wanderers to ask for information about 3 Quests over the course of the Event at the Conquest table or TOM Desk
  • Times that Knights will take out Quests (and which Knight) will be advertised from the start of the Event, as will the Quest they intend to take when that is confirmed
  • Quest locations must be chosen an hour before the Quest departs and this will be announced
  • There will be an upper limit on Quest party size
  • We will be looking at improving the threat level and risk/reward balance of Quests
  • We will be adding an additional Quest Ref
  • At the back end there will be better monitoring of who has gone on Quests to ensure everyone who wants to go on a Quest can, and to ensure the distribution is fair. Whether or not this manifests mechanically will be something we look at in the run-up to Chapter 2
  • Monarchs will no longer need to consent to a Quest being taken to their territory, but may of course continue to have opinions about such Quests occurring without their say-so


  • We will be looking at improving Bonds to make them more accessible for non-combatants and to enhance the roleplaying associated with them. We are not ready to make changes at this point but have plans to change these while in keeping with the intent of what is currently on the Wiki

Combat, Jousts, and Melees

  • Additional Melees will be organised during Chapter 2, though we haven't decided quite when yet
  • Tournament Jousts will be clustered so that there are several at a time rather than one every half hour
  • The area where Jousts and Melees occur has been renamed to The Proving Ground, and will be always available as an area for fighting where injury and death may occur

  • Emphasised two second rule and added reminder that if a Ref asks you to change your fighting style you should accommodate that
  • Your death count is now a number of minutes equal to your current maximum number of hits (yes, this means that if you give up Blood for magic, your death count will be shorter)

  • Stout now gives you 6 hits
  • Your death count is now a number of minutes equal to your maximum number of hits

  • We will be looking to add more elements to the Conquest Table but will not confirm what those are now


  • Added Character Submission Deadline equivalent to the Late Booking / Cancellation Deadline. We reserve the right to cancel bookings where a character has not been submitted before this point, particularly where we have received no communication on the matter
