Epoch is a live-action roleplaying game set in an apocalyptic time of swords and sorcery. It is a world of warriors, bandits, mages, alchemists, and mystics. The Epoch rules allow for any profession or combination of professions, so the players have total freedom when creating a character.
Dice, cards and hand gestures are never used to determine the outcome of a situation, but rather the players’ own abilities — enhanced by rules in the game. Players really have to fight, hide, and throw spells when playing their characters.
Epoch is a safe, full contact game. Combat is played out with foam-padded weapons, better known as “boffer weapons”. Spells are represented by small throwing bean bags known as “mana”. Even fists are represented by a section of foam tubing.
Epoch uses costumes and huge puppets to represent exotic people, fearsome monsters and bizarre creatures, some of which are operated by two or more cast members!
Events are now $45.
Membership is now $45.
How convenient and easy to remember! You still get a $5 discount per event if you buy 3 or more events at once (Minimum $120 for 3 events). This price change will start in March.
Alchemists prepare to cringe. This year we want to mainstream alchemy in a sense. As all alchemists know and for new alchemists. An alchemist must have the physical Book or recipe (scroll, scrap of paper etc) in front of them to brew said potion and that the PC must remain in front of said potion for the full duration of brewing. Leaving the potion before the end of brew time (Without having someone of equivalent skill taking over) or becoming unconscious or being impaired (With water I freeze you etc) you must inform the AD as there could be consequences.
This year we as the AD team are going to start signing off alchemy potions. So even if you are an old alchemist. If you brew a potion you must submit your copy of your alchemy book to the AD team so they can physically sign off on it. If you have a special prop book that you don't want to get wrecked it must be able to at least contain a tag for said recipies. It does not matter even if your budy is brewing the same potion for the first time. All recipes must be signed off.
Keep in mind that your recipe book can be stolen in game and thus if you lose your signed copies you must start the process over from where ever you get the new recipies.
This way we can confirm what recipes are A-OK and what future AD's/ Execs will have to trade in for the confirmed recipes. This also eliminates the he said she said they said scenarios.
Cauldrons and alchemical kits must be brought to the AD's and a player must have a tag for both!
Any alchemy on doors, archways or openings have expired due to plot and thus you must reapply said alchemy to doors and windows. Barrier of life is valid per entry. Aka if my building has 4 windows and 2 doors I must have 6 barriers of life to seal off the entery ways.
When it comes to RPing alchemy please don't always fall into the trap of over dramatic extremes. Someone under a love potion even after cured could still question their emotions for a person. Someone who was hit with a burnout may literally drag themselves to the inn breathing deeply and shaking. Someone who is sick will slowly progressively feel sick and not instantly run for a doctor. Just because you are hit with alchemy does not mean you instantly know that you have been attacked by it.
If you take any addictive alchemy you MUST come let AD's know. Addiction to alchemy will be instructed how to RP once they have been confirmed addicted. If your character is under a form of addiction please notify the AD's.
If you have any concerns please feel free to email or PM us.

Time Line: Friday: (Insert encounters) Saturday: (Insert encounters) Sunday: (Insert encounters)
What I need from AD's: ALL OF THE SUPPORT
I have read and agreed to the AD's policy for running an event during their season.
ED Policies & Rules:

☠ AD's get priority of NPC's if and when they need them.
☠ Any majour treasure sent out must be approved by AD's

from the AD budget unless agreed to with written consent.
☠ AD can dismiss an ED at any time if they so choose to. (This usually
only if the person is causing OOG issues either within the cast-cabin)
We will be keeping a tally of interactions on the board. If you spend gold, silver, mana etc we will expect those components at the beging of game. Counter to that we will also keep a record of what is to be given to you for between game interactions.
Ex: Hagar throws 4 fire mana into the fire circle (At log he'll be required to hand over the required creeps and or mana that would equal 4)
Another Ex: "Silver prays at the Fairy circle. Around the circle sprouts 10 different herbs. Silver then harvests these herbs." (We will have additional herbs for you at the beging of game.)
Please keep this in mind.
