Introduction What is CRO? – CRO is the Creative Roleplaying Organization, it is a unique LARP that takes place in a universe unique to the game. It incorporates aspects of classic fantasy like elves, dwarves, and magic but has many aspects that you won’t find in other fantasy settings. The rules system used by CRO in this version, 5.0, is different from any other system that you will find. It is designed to give each player the ability to create any character they could want to and to give flexibility in every aspect of the game. CRO isn’t just a game that meets once a month for a weekend though, CRO is a family of likeminded individuals that all enjoy LARPing. Who Can Play? – Anyone can play CRO. We don’t discriminate for any reason. The only things that will stop you from being able to participate in a CRO event are if you have been suspended from the game for any reason or if you are under 18 and don’t have permission to play from a parent or guardian. We reserve the right to suspend any player, at any time, for any reason. What Should I Bring With Me? – Here is a list of things that you should bring to every CRO event you attend, whether you are a player or a staff member: Costuming Weapon(s) Spell packets(if your character uses them) Warm sleeping gear(sleeping bag, pillows, blankets, etc…) Extra dry clothes Extra socks and footwear Rain gear(something that isn’t modern-looking) Food(we feed you breakfast and dinner on Saturday but that isn’t enough to carry you through an entire weekend in the woods) Personal hygiene items Weapon repair materials(duct tape, foam, scissors, etc…) Personal effects for cabin/personal space decoration Bug spray and first aid kit Pencil and paper or other writing implement Emergency flashlight(something small only for emergency situations)

Event Schedule – CRO typically has 9 weekend-long events each year, with other smaller gatherings scheduled over the year. The event schedule can be found online at the CRO website. Each event takes hours of setup to get our game world ready for play. If you show up early and decide to help us set up you will be rewarded with Gems (which can be exchanged for experience and other things). Once setup is complete players begin to line up for check-in, which will always be marked. At check-in, each player will sign a waiver, pay for the event if they haven’t pre-registered, receive his or her updated character sheet, and have his or her armor and weapons checked for safety. During check-in, the cast (NPCs) will be meeting in other locations at the site to help set up and meet with the Game Masters

(GMs). Each NPC should check-in at Plot Central and let the staff know they are at game. After check-in is complete all players and cast members gather in the tavern building for a general opening meeting. At this meeting, important rules will be repeated and any rules changes will be announced. Also you will be informed of which people you should find in case of an emergency. After this meeting is over it’s time for Game On! Once game starts on Friday night it runs non-stop for the entirety of the event until game is called on Sunday afternoon. This means that you are always in character once game is on, even when you are sleeping. If you feel you need to go Out of Game for any reason please stop by Plot Central first and let someone know. We may have something planned for your character and that way we can postpone it instead of trying to run it when you aren’t there and then not have time for it later. Also, it is important for us to know where you are in case of an emergency. After Game Over is called on Sunday afternoon all players and staff will gather at the tavern building again for a general closing meeting and then checkout. At checkout you will turn in your character sheet and any other game item we ask you to hand in. These items and your updated character sheet will be returned to you at check-in of the next event you attend. Once you are done with checkout feel free to help us break down (you will be awarded Gems for this!). Being Considerate – CRO is a family game and we expect everyone that attends the game to show respect to each and every other person attending the event, whether they are a player or a staff member. No matter how much your character may hate another character, you have to respect the person playing that character under all circumstances. If you find yourself in an uncomfortable situation, it is your right to remove yourself fro m that situation and find a Game Master. It is especially important to show consideration to new players and staff that may not be completely comfortable with the rules yet. On the topic of Out of Game consideration we ask you to keep your language as clean as possible. This means no swearing or use of vulgar or offensive words. Modern day obscenities detract from the game for everyone that has to hear them. Expand your vocabulary and make new, creative insults if you feel the need to use them. Remember that we are always watching for good roleplaying and this is a great way to be recognized for your work as your character. Cheating – CRO is played using an honor system, this means that you are responsible for knowing and remembering your character’s stats and abilities at all times. As a player or staff member you are trusted to play by the rules at all times under all circumstances. The intention of a rule is just as important as how it is worded, and if you have any questions about how something works just ask a Game Master, don’t assume that it “just works.” If you are caught cheating in any form you risk being ask to leave CRO for one or more events. Each player is required to memorize the rules that his or her character uses during game. A claim of “I didn’t know how that skill/spell worked” or “I confused a rule with a rule of another LARP” are not acceptable. There is a very small amount that you need

to memorize as a player. If someone uses a skill or spell against you that you don’t understand just ask for it to be clarified using the “Clarify” command word. If there is ever any confusion or argument seek a Game Master for a clarification. Metagaming – There are things that you as a player may learn about the CRO world that your character would not know. Using this Out of Game knowledge while In Game is called “Metagaming” and is considered a form of cheating. Example: If you decide to NPC for part of an event you may play a monster that has a specific weakness or vulnerability and learn that weakness or vulnerability as a player. This doesn’t mean that when you go back into game as your character that you know this weakness, and if you do share this knowledge with anyone you are Metagaming. Also, be careful who you share knowledge about your character with Out of Game. It is unfair to other players for you to share secret information about your character with them and expect them not to know it In Game. Once you know information Out of Game it becomes very difficult to legitimize knowing that information In Game because you are already predisposed to what the answer to your question is. To avoid this, don’t share any information that you don’t want others to know about your character with other players. Similarly, don’t share secret information about other people’s characters unless you want others to know about it. It’s out of respect that you don’t share this information between games. It’s not cheating to do this, but if someone discovers something about your character that you didn’t want to know, don’t be surprised if you’ve been bragging about it to other players. Rules Changes – From time to time a rule is discovered to be ineffective or ambiguous. In this case, between events it may be changed or rewritten. No rule will ever be changed during an event unless it compromises the safety of the game. Between events the CRO staff will always consider suggestions for rules additions and alterations, you may have caught something that we didn’t. We are hopeful that CRO v5.0 will last for many years and there will inevitably be rules changes before a new edition of CRO is released, so keep your eyes out for a newer edition of the rulebook. There will always be an announcement to all players and staff when a new edition of the rulebook is released. We will always try to give you enough time to acquaint yourself with the new rules before an event and will go over important changes at Opening Meeting before each game. Real(OOG) Laws – In the atmosphere of the game there will be In Game laws that your character will be expected to follow(but doesn’t have to if they choose not to.) Out of Game laws, both national and state, all still apply at all times during a CRO event and anyone caught breaking the law will be punished. Theft – In Game items can be stolen during the game. At the end of the event these items must always be returned to their Out of Game owner. Items that are Out of Game, underneath someone’s bed, or in an Out of Game area(such as someone’s car) may NOT be stolen, even if they can be used In Game. Theft of Out of Game items is punishable by the law. Drugs, Alcohol, and Smoking – The use or possession of alcohol or illegal drugs at a CRO event is strictly forbidden. Alcohol is represented In Game by non-alcoholic

friendly faces. and are at each . Field strip your cigarette and pocket the butt until you can find somewhere to dispose of it. Leave it at home. They write and direct the plot. Smoking is permitted at CRO with few limitations. CRO is not the place for it. Being an NPC is free. merchants. If you need to move combat away from that area just use the “Caution” keyword and move the combat to a safer area. there is always a risk of injury. Please be considerate to other players and staff when smoking. NPCs are not exempt from needing to know the rules or policies of the game. Anyone caught with alcohol or illegal drugs or anyone found to be under the influence of any of these substances will be banned from returning to CRO and may face legal consequences. refrain from any Out of Game illegal activities and to not possess or consume drugs or alcohol while at an event. Don’t even bring a real knife(bigger than a pocket knife) or any kind of sword or blade to game with you. report dangerous and potentially dangerous situations to a Game Master. and other light sources that are generally as In Game looking as we can to try to illuminate dark areas and at night. Game Masters – Game Masters (or GMs) are the ones that make the game run. blades. Conversely. NPCs assume many different roles over the course of the weekend(monsters. If there is an open flame illuminating an area there is no combat allowed within 20 feet of that open flame. If these rules are not being followed then smoking will become restricted to certain areas. No player is allowed to carry a real weapon or live steel of any kind around with them. We use candles. There’s enough space at the camp that people don’t have to be breathing your smoke. and all NPCs should be as familiar with the rules as possible because as an NPC you will have many different abilities as opposed to being a player and having one set of abilities that need to be memorized. Parental Permission – If you are under 18 years of age you are still allowed to come to CRO and play the game but you need written consent form a parent or legal guardian on your most current waiver. field questions both between and during games. ever.beverages like juice. Don’t smoke near people that don’t want you to smoke near them. There is no smoking in buildings and we ask that you stay 25 feet away from the entrance to any building when smoking to be considerate to other players. or anything sharp. Live Steel – CRO uses safe “boffer” weapons for combat. Flashlights may be carried by any player or staff member but are only to be used in an emergency. we encourage you to wear real armor as long as it doesn’t have spikes. Lights and Fires – We try hard to maintain a believable fantasy atmosphere at CRO and lighting can very easily not be very In Game looking. We’re Not Liable – We’ve made the CRO system as safe as possible but. NPCs – NPCs are Non Player Characters and are the cast of CRO. By signing it you agree to follow all of our safety regulations. do NOT throw your cigarette butts on the ground. as with any physical activity. Also. etc…) and make the game run smoothly. firelight. Once a year you will need to sign a waiver acknowledging that CRO is not liable for injuries sustained during an event.

For these purposes. just downhill off the road. and most staff. No player may enter this area for any reason without the permission of a GM. Cancellations – Rarely a situation will arise that will prevent a CRO event from taking place. You will sometimes see an entry in this book saying to consult a GM or a GM must be present. This area is used for administrative game purposes that players. Players are not allowed in this area without permission from a GM unless there is an emergency. If there is some kind of dangerously severe weather the event will be cancelled or game will be called early. All GMs will be introduced at the Opening Meeting before each event. There will always be at least one GM in either this area or the tavern. These are requirements and not suggestions. the male gender is used almost exclusively in this rulebook. is an Out of Game area where the NPCs receive their orders and get in costume. the kitchen of the tavern should be considered to be Plot Central. Weather – CRO takes place in any and all weather conditions. The location of Plot Central is on the main path from the cabins down to the tavern. so please only do this as a last resort. During game they will be more than happy to field your questions but they are busy making the world run. every character is considered a creature. . so please come prepared for any possible weather conditions. Disclaimer About Gender – For sake of ease. Also. are not allowed to be involved with. but usually there will be one in each place.event to ensure that every player and staff member is having fun (that’s the whole point of LARPing.) GMs have answers to all of your questions about the game and you should feel free to talk with them before and after game about any questions or concerns you may have. If you had preregistered for an event that is cancelled your preregistration will be moved to the next event that you can attend. If this is going to be the case we will do our best to let all players and staff know as far ahead in advance as possible. or “Ops”.

It is entirely alright for your character to be Agnostic. put in the simplest way possible. Read the description of a Race completely before deciding to play a character of that Race. so there is much specialization even to the most basic skill and spells. and Weapon Skills.Chapter 1 – Character Creation The following section describes in detail the process of creating a CRO character.

Choose your Race – CRO is a robust world of fantasy and because of this there are many races that inhabit the world. they stab their enemies in the back. so we will be expecting you to play the character to its fullest extent. Though Humans do exist there are roleplaying challenges and amazing costumes to be found in the other races that exist. but there are very few beings in the world that are Atheists because the presence of the Gods is a very noticeable thing. There also exist Privilege Races. Not all creatures in the CRO world worship Gods. that character cannot be rewritten. The CRO staff assumes that all players playing characters of any Race are fully aware of everything written in the Race description. Each of the 4 core lists has requirements that are prerequisite skills that a player must have before they . but that there are no specified classes built into the system. known as a rewrite.

These requirements are listed in the skills section of the rulebook (Chapter 3). keep in mind any costuming requirements that your race has. but you will not come into game with more money than any other player and will not automatically receive any roleplaying benefits from having noble blood). 5. Buy/Make/Acquire a costume – The most important aspect of a character is how you as a player decide to play him or her. Under certain circumstances a player may be able to start game with a character with benefits. No matter where your character is from. Come prepared and ready to play your character to its fullest extent. Keep in mind the setting of the game when you are writing your history. The Staff of CRO will always assist in any way possible to make sure your character is properly costumed. Boffer weapons are constructed of PVC pipe covered in pipe foam and duct tape to hold the whole thing together. They receive none of their racial benefits. Write your character’s history – A character history does wonders to flesh out a character before they are even played for the first time. Keep this in mind when writing your history. A brand new character starts with 100 experience points with which to purchase whatever skills they want. If you wish for your character to wear armor you must actually have and wear the appropriate armor. You can be a Juggernaut and an Archmage if you have the points to spend on it and your character lives long enough to accomplish these goals. Make your weapons and have your armor ready – If you want to participate in combat you will need a legal boffer weapon. whether they are makeup requirements or otherwise. A character of a specialized race that is not wearing their costume requirements is no longer considered a member of that race. and that player will lose roleplaying experience that game for not having their character properly costumed. When putting together your costume. and your character may even say that he is an Arch-Juggernaut. CRO is designed so that you can customize your character in whatever way you want.

This speeds up the process of Check-In and means you can have a real. Exceptions are made if a character is no longer playable due to death. It is also viewed as good practice to submit your character (with skill choices) to the Staff at least a week before the game you are planning on playing your character. Does your character have any friends or enemies? v. . Having an approved history means submitting your history to the staff at least a week before the event you are planning on playing your character and getting a response from the Staff informing you that your history has been approved.

A character that has had their history submitted to the Staff and approved before a character is played has 20 extra XP to spend on their starting skills. printed character sheet at game instead of a hand-written one. You know what your history says and what your skills and spells do and nothing more. Where is your character from? ii. please keep in mind that it is easiest for the Staff to write plot for you if you keep your history simple and to-the-point. It is expected that you will learn more during the course of playing your character. What did your character do before he became an adventurer and ventured across the ocean to the unknowns of the world? Submit your written history to the CRO Staff before you play your first game. Specific information in this rulebook is NEVER considered common knowledge. but it is cheating to have any knowledge other than that. but it makes it incredibly difficult for us to write plot for that character. etc… Any new character (beyond your first) that is made always starts with 100 experience. It is easiest for the Staff to write plot for your character if we have your history before you play your character.

Chapter 2 – Races There are many fantastic races in the world of CRO5. Not all of the races that appear in the game are playable by a Player Character (further written as PC), but there are many options for PC race. There are certain benefits that come with playing certain races, and these are listed in the appropriate Race entries that follow. Keep in mind that a character of a specific Race that does not meet the costuming requirements of that race loses the benefits of that Race until their costuming is adequate again. The ages of a race are all listed relative to the average age of a Human, which is only listed as “Standard”. Time is a relative thing within Races, so don’t feel required to list everything in specific years. Human • Costume Requirements – None • Racial Bonus - None Race Info Humans are creatures that blend into the world around them. They are not very interesting or appealing to look at, but are the simplest and most humble of all humanoid creatures, hence the term humanoid being derived from the name of their race. Humans can be found in all civilized parts of Caspovene, mainly in the cities. Humans tend to get along best with non-ancient races. They haven’t been around as long as Elves or Dwarves so they tend to be somewhat ignorant of their cultural views. They get along just fine with Celts and most Scavengers. Humans don’t have any long-standing racial grudges but they share common enemies with the civilized world: undead, goblins, etc… Humans live a “standard” life, meaning they generally live to be 60 or 70 years of age. This time span is used as a rough standard in measuring the average life span of a race. Humans have no specific culture or social hierarchy because they are such a young race but they have no real say over the government of Caspovene because they aren’t an ancient race. Humans have no real favored gods or skill specializations; they have no natural inclination toward anything but find themselves to be fairly proficient in most anything they try. High Elf Foreign Literate: Elven as racial – pointed ears, white face makeup of any design • Costume Requirements – Pointed ears, white facial markings of any design • Racial Bonus – Foreign Literate: Elven for free Race Info High Elves are a noble race that prides themselves in their regal appearance. They have the pointed ears that define all Elves as well as white markings on their face. Their markings are generally what appear to be magical runes and other geometrical figures. Symmetry in facial markings is a sign of truly noble High Elven blood. High Elves are most comfortable in cities and other places that have all the amenities of comfortable life. When forced into rural areas they are generally uncomfortable with the lack of modern conveniences. The great High Elven cities of old are full of tall towers and expansive libraries. High Elves look down upon other races that they consider to be less intelligent than they are. Humans, Celts, and Scavengers don’t live long enough to attain the enlightenment

that High Elves seek. Dwarves are too concerned with rocks. They tend to get along well with most of the other races, but usually only in a more serious forum. They empathize with the ambitions of the other elves but don’t always see eye-to-eye because they are from very different worlds. High Elves have a natural inclination toward the Arcane. They find the magical energies of the world easy to manipulate and their vast libraries reflect their vast knowledge. Those who decide to fight are almost exclusively Finesse fighters. They also make splendid Tinkerers because of their highly analytical minds. All Elves generally live to be about 1000 years of age. Once they reach middle age they no longer show signs of aging until the last year of their life. It is at this time that all Elves begin to seek the Elven Home of the afterlife. To not find this place is a great dishonor to any Elven family. High Elves are very reserved and speaking heavily of personal matters in public is considered rude. Even though High Elves look down upon many other races, they rarely speak of such matters outside a private setting. In the beginning of recorded history there was a single race of Elves. The Elves are an ancient race, meaning that they have an ancient language. In the ancient Elven language their race is known as the Trien. As the Elves spread throughout the known world different groups found different homes. The High Elves found their home in the city of Coronal ‘Adar, which they built over the course of 500 years from the ground up. It’s location in the hills of the central North of Caspovene provided protection from the elements and their vast libraries and towers populate the interior of the city walls. Coronal ‘Adar translates to “The great serenity residing in peace.” It was from this city name that the Elves living there were given the name Coronal ‘Trien, meaning “The great serenity of the Elven people.” The study of the arcane became the focus of the research that went on within the city and the High Elves slowly developed their distinguishing white facial markings that are now passed on through their bloodline. The Gods of Life and Order, as well as their Demigods, are the most frequently revered by the High Elven people. The Dark Gods have no place in High Elven society and their worship is shunned and forbidden. The Gods of Nature have no place in the High Elven cities and are ignored. The Gods of Fortune are worshipped occasionally, but mainly by those who are young and seeking to expand their horizons to places outside the city. The Gods of War are seldom worshipped, but Brand is popular among militant High Elves as he represents the intellectual side of combat. Half Elf • Costume Requirements – Pointed ears • Racial Bonus – None Race Info Half Elves are descendants of the ancient Elven race. They do not bear the facial markings of their ancient brethren but retain the pointed ears of the Elven people. They find themselves at home in many different settings, whether inside or outside of cities. They have no true cities of their own.

Half Elves get along with most of the other races. They are not truly an ancient race so they find it easy to empathize with both ancient and non-ancient races. They are less serious than any of the other Elves but show their serious side in time of distress. Half Elves have a penchant for storytelling so they make excellent Bards. They have a lesser degree of inclination toward the Arcane than High Elves but are still somewhat adept in magic. They perform deftly in the arts of Stealth and Fighting. Half Elves don’t live as long as other Elves, only about 300 years. They age at a normal rate, slowly becoming older. Half Elves do not seek the Elven Home. In the beginning of recorded history there was a single race of Elves. The Elves are an ancient race, meaning that they have an ancient language. In the ancient Elven language their race is known as the Trien. As the Elves spread throughout the known world different groups found different homes. The Half Elves found themselves spread throughout the world cohabitating with non-Elven races. Because of this they did not develop their own distinct markings and did not retain most of their magical heritage. They earned the name Cha ‘Tel ‘Trien among the Elves, meaning “Half of the Elven people.” This name was originally an insult to the Half Elves but they slowly learned to embrace it and take great pride in it now. All gods are almost evenly worshipped by Half Elves because of their diversity in all aspects of life.

River Elf • Costume Requirements – Pointed ears(preferably fin-like), blue facial markings of any design • Racial Bonus – Breathe and speak in water Race Info River Elves are good-natured, plain-appearing Elves. They have the pointed ears that define all Elves as well as blue markings on their face. Their markings are generally what appear to be flowing currents of water and waves. Symmetry is unimportant. River Elves live in fresh water settlements throughout the Northern half of Caspovene, but mainly on the Eastern shore of the continent. River Elf settlements are simple, and are most certainly not cities. They are modest in their living situations but are still self sufficient. River Elves get along best with Szurines, the only other truly aquatic civilized race of the world. Sea Dwarves are confined to the salt water bodies of the continent so the River Elves largely ignore them and vice versa. Being mainly on the other side of the Great Wall puts them in semi-regular contact with many of the Scavenger tribes so their relationship is healthy. All Elves generally live to be about 1000 years in age. Once they reach middle age they no longer show signs of aging until the last year of their life. It is at this time that all Elves begin to seek the Elven Home of the afterlife. To not find this place is a great dishonor to any Elven family. River Elves are inclined to be Water Mages specifically, but do well with Arcane magic in general because of their Elven blood. As warriors they tend toward Defensive fighting styles. River Elves make excellent Brewers as they spend most of their life in close contact with liquids and understand their properties better than most. River Elves are very adamant about keeping bodies of freshwater clean and safe. Much of the civilized world uses the streams and rivers to dispose of refuse, which is unacceptable. In the beginning of recorded history there was a single race of Elves. The Elves are an ancient race, meaning that they have an ancient language. In the ancient Elven language their race is known as the Trien. As the Elves spread throughout the known

world different groups found different homes. The River Elves found their home in the great Eastern lake of Caspovene, which has become known as Alu’Mayl in Elven, meaning “Clear, Still Waters.” It was from this name that the Elves living near these waters earned the name Alu’Mayl ‘Trien, “The Clear, Still Waters of the Elven people.” They centered their lives around the waters of their home and developed their distinguishing blue facial markings that are now passed on through the bloodline. River Elves favor Cheynal and the Demigods of Luck except for Bedlam, though many choose to worship the Kraken. Wood Elf • Costume Requirements – Pointed ears, green facial markings of any design • Racial Bonus – Bow/Crossbow and Thrown Weapon proficiencies Race Info
Wood Elves are humble denizens of the forests of the world. They dress in simple garb that is generally in earthy colors. They have the pointed ears that define all Elves as well as green markings on their face. Their markings are generally simple shapes or vines that seem to grow across their faces. Symmetry is rarely seen in their facial markings. Wood Elves find their homes in the dense, lush forests of the world. Most find it uncomfortable to spend much time in a city and unbearable to live in one. The great Wood Elven cities are in the center of densely forested areas and are not proper cities but rather expansive villages full of natural buildings. Wood Elves find themselves empathetic to other races that live in natural settings. Many Scavengers, especially Darians, are friends to the Wood Elves. Wood Elves have a tenuous relationship with Trolls, they are civil toward one another but seldom interact. They have a certain respect for other Elves but find it hard to get along with them, except for the River Elves, who also largely live off of nature. Wood Elves tend to have trouble getting along with shorterlived races. Wood Elves have a natural inclination toward archery and finesse fighting. They make excellent Rangers and Rogues, with their facial markings giving them some natural camouflage. Great Wood Elven champions of battle are said to have been Blade Dancers. Because of their inclination toward archery, they make excellent Fletchers. All Elves generally live to be about 1000 years in age. Once they reach middle age they no longer show signs of aging until the last year of their life. It is at this time that all Elves begin to seek the Elven Home of the afterlife. To not find this place is a great dishonor to any Elven family. Wood Elves are very conscious of nature around them and wasting any sort of natural resource, whether it be food, lumber, or otherwise, is a very offensive act.

Their faces are elongated and terminate with a wide variety of beak sizes.Race Info Appearance: The majority of a Pteran’s body is covered with feathers.

Age Increments: Pterans go through stages of life at proportionately the same time as humans. the few that retain anything resembling the ability of flight prefer to be surrounded by the sights of high vistas or rolling hills beneath them to remind them of what they believe once was.

Regional Landmarks: Although they know of Buffalo Plateau.Family Bonds are the strongest bonds. and even partners are shared so that all may benefit from the available resources.Everything is shared. but beyond this. everyone is either mother/father or brother/sister. and stronger individuals are more capable of contributing back to the group creating a snowballing effect of improvement on both personal and social levels.

Due to the sharing of partners. Attitudes about Money: No money exists that is Mastican-specific. Somewhat less common (but certainly not unheard of) is the delivery of an ultimatum from afar: turn back now or be pursued across the land and trampled. To this end. it holds no special significance to them other than for orientation purposes. The double standard exists in that even though all Masticans feel a strong sense of brotherhood.

Age of Race: Mutation? Social Hierarchy Nymoreans have little care of issuing orders or making decrees over others and as such have developed an egalitarian way of life. with the exception of regions of the world with arctic conditions year round. Natural Enemies: Because of their tendency towards meekness in some. Nymoreans seem to attract larger. stronger types who delight in the ease in which they can toss them about. Age Increments: Nymoreans sometimes seem to have an extended adolescence when compared to other races. Orcs tend to do this more than others.: None.

Nothing pleases them more than to watch another tear out it hair looking for an item that the Nymorean has moved to an obvious yet easily overlooked spot. Entertainment: To list everything that entertains a Nymorean would be far too long. they typically save up every copper they can until the day when the right purchase comes along and then they’re back to zero. Mother and Father are in charge and the children run about and cause trouble. Nagendran • Costume Requirements – Scaled skin. Passing of Tradition / History: Nymoreans love a good yarn.

They are often quite content with this one and see little need to prolong what is typically a comfortable life. Nymoreans worship a wide variety of deities. Family Hierarchy: Very similar to humans.

Race Info Appearance: Slender, lithe and elongated bodies. Many have completely serpentine or reptilian facial features, and all have some degree of scaly skin covering their bodies. Habitat: Anywhere warm, but Nagendrans also prefer a good degree of moisture in the air as well, and so tend to congregate near warm bodies of water. There are no Nagendrans in cold climates. Interactions w/other Races: Nagendrans have a sort of sweet tooth for all things eggy, and although many are not above eating a stranger’s or enemy Nagendran’s eggs, this has led to quite a few incidents involving Pterans, who’s eggs are recognized as by far the tastiest. This, in combination with an existing rivalry of intelligences (the erudite nature of the Pterans vs. the natural cunning and instinct of the Nagendrans) has led to extreme mistrust and even bloodshed between the two races. Class spec. / Skill spec: Anything that accents their penchant for quick, thrusting strikes when least expected. This typically translates into the more “stealthy” lists and skills. Lifespan: Most Nagendrans will live a life that spans the length of an average Human’s. If left alone, it is possible to see a Nagendran reach 90 or so, but the majority tends to get themselves into trouble somehow and meet an earlier end. Age Increments: Although they go through physiological stages that can be labeled juvenile -> adolescent -> adult, most Nagendrans will not exhibit much change in behavior from stage to stage, and the playfulness and carefree childhood seen in other races simply does not exist. Once out of the egg, a young Nagendran quickly learns that he or she is on their own. Cultural Taboos: Nagendrans seem to be the exception to the rule in that they have no taboos as such; in fact they tend to regularly engage in behavior that other races would abhor. This is due largely to the fact that Nagendrans simply have a different view on life than most other races, a result of their isolated upbringing. Rare is the Nagendran who considers any sort of behavior as off-limits. Age of Race: Young or Mutation? Social Hierarchy: Nagendrans don’t often do anything that does not directly benefit them in some way, so when one acts within any sort of social environment, there is endless bargaining and bribing and coercing in order to curry favor or simply intimidate others into helping one accomplish his goals. When one reaches the top so to speak, he will remain there so long as he can keep his subordinates convinced that maintaining the current state of affairs is in their best interest. However, no matter how much truth there may be to that, there is always a Nagendran out there who feels he is getting the short end of the bargain and assassinations are commonplace. Afterlife: Nagendrans hold no belief in a life beyond this. Perhaps another explanation as to why they have no true taboos.

Entertainment: All Nagendrans delight in their ability to sneak up silently behind someone and scare the living daylights out of them. Some of the more cruel Nagendrans run successful pit fighting rings or animal fights and so on. Passing of Tradition / History: Should one or more Nagendrans feel that something is of such importance that it must be recorded, they will typically hire out a scribe of another race, as writing is widely considered to be a waste of time by all but the most learned. Otherwise, knowledge of events passes by word of mouth, but is rarely to be trusted as truth, since most Nagendrans only pay attention to the parts that appeal to them and will alter bits and pieces of it to suit their purposes. Racial Expressions: - Curses: Redblood – A reference to the difference in mentality between the Nagendrans and nearly every other race, which they thoroughly resent. - Phrases: “(so and so) is being warm-blooded” – A derogatory way of going about saying that one is acting too heavily based on their emotions, again a sting to other races. - Slang: “Mother’s milk” – code for poison. Sometimes even just “milk”; reflects the knowledge that instead of being nurtured as the juveniles of other races are, Nagendrans are essentially left to raise themselves. - Greetings: World Location: Historically, they began in swampy areas which remain high population centers, but have since spread to nearly every area of the world that is warm at least ¾ of the year, even arid areas. Enemies: Potentially anyone at any time, most races have a negative view of Nagendrans due to the ease in which they take offense to their attitudes of other races. Sometimes this view is much deserved, as with the Pterans. Allies: Anyone who agrees to the offered price. Costume Requirements: Face paint with scaly motif or mask – Optional: Tail, scaly body suit and / or bald cap. Favored Gods: Of those that do choose to worship, many will turn to the evil Gods. Although they know that the acquisition of power can be had through any of the Gods, power over others is their favorite kind. Favored Weapons: Anything suited to delivering a quick thrust. Family Hierarchy: None. A Nagendran is lucky if he knows who sired him and would treat him no differently were he to meet him. Attitudes about Money: Money is seen as yet another means to an end; a way to get what they want. Money tends to be the most commonly used bargaining chip when attempting to persuade others due to its ability to allow others to get what they want easily. Special Characteristics: Natural armor at level “X” and “+Y” points every “Z” levels

Regional Landmarks: None widely known. Darian • Costume Requirements – Vines and leaves covering exposed skin, all exposed skin is green and/or brown • Racial Bonus - +1 Hit Point during the day(from sunrise to sunset), immunity to Entangle from any source Race Info Appearance: A wide variety of humanoid figures; some are nearly indistinguishable from Humans save for an unnatural tint of green to the skin, curling vines growing among their hair and an earthy musk that follows them. Others have a rough, bark-like skin and elongated limbs and others still are brilliantly colored with floral patterns. Habitat: A huge variety of manifestations of form among the Darians means that there also exists a huge variety of preferred environments. The majority of Darian population is divided between tropical rainforests and temperate forest environments. The colder the climate, the less of a population you will find, but most environments can support some variety of Darian. Interactions with other Races: The Darians hold a certain fascination with other races due to their alien appearance and mentality. Some make a good living traveling about with troupes that showcase odd and unusual beings, while unfortunately others are simply kidnapped and sold as personal entertainers or even just a showcase piece as part of a collection. This is more than enough encouragement for most Darians to retreat further into their own lands in order to avoid greedy slavers but by no means does this keep all of them away from civilization. Class / Skill specialty: Natural Enemies: No Darian can survive without the proper environment to sustain them, so naturally when one is threatened, they will defend it as any other would defend their home. This has earned them the animosity of many a lumber or mining expedition. The types of affronts the Darians typically respond to are those that have a large price tag on them, such as resource gathering or the capturing of “exotic species” and as such more and more merchant groups seem to be joining the cause against the resistance the Darians offer up when they come around. Lifespan: There is a wide spread of variation among the many forms a Darian can take; some breeds will live vivacious lives and spend it all up in a short time, while others seem to slow time around them and outlast all but the longest-lived races. Age Increments: There is often little transition between the juvenile and adult stage, indeed it seems that many go through it at an accelerated rate, with intense emotions being indulged and huge appetites being sated. This is not the norm for all breeds, however, some transition so slowly and over such a span of time that the shifts can hardly be noticed at all.

Cultural Taboos: Desecration or ruining of any land. The definition of this desecration is somewhat flexible, of course, as some are much more militant about it. This has nurtured a great deal of mutual respect between them and the Masticans. Age of Race: Thoroughly ancient; the earliest records of every species that make note of the Darians’ existence imply that they are not new to this world and indeed it is anyone’s guess as to exactly how long they have been around. Social Hierarchy: True to the form of many other aspects of Darians, there is a wild variation between populations as to how the social structure is arranged. Some are so that all are equal and no position of leadership is taken by anyone. On the opposite extreme, Some are likened to small cult-like orders, with one Darian being given total control over a group of willing subjects for a multitude of reasons; food, reproductive rights, or even access to prime lands are among the many reasons this arrangement may exist. Many different styles of co-operation exist as well, but they are too numerous to list here. Afterlife: Darians hold no true belief in a life beyond this one, but they do have a keen sense of the lives that came before theirs, those that will proceed after their own and speak of each as if they were an extension of their own lives. Entertainment: Although it is much more common to see a Darian entertaining the other races in some capacity, this is not to say that they themselves do not enjoy this situation, provided of course that consent to the arrangement exists. Many varieties of Darian relish their ability to bask in the limelight and make a good living off it as well. Passing of Tradition / History: Events of note are limited to small populations and since there is no true Darian kingdom, nation, etc., naturally, no cohesive Darian history exists to be recorded. Traditions are passed on by example among tightly knit groups and a wide range of behaviors can be expected from different gardens. Racial Expressions: - Phrases: “Don’t split your buds/pop your seeds” – Lighthearted ways of saying to take it easy, calm down, etc. - Curses: - Slang: “Garden”- Interchangeable with group, gang, cluster, etc. Generalpurpose word for an exclusive population of Darians only. - Greetings: Darians tend to be more physical with their greetings, some have adopted a simple handshake but when two Darians meet, there is much contact including holding of arms, hands, a hand on the shoulder or even prolonged embraces. This suggests a sort of exchange between the two beyond the gesture. World Location Historically / Now: Originally, only in tropical and temperate forests. Now spread throughout, all except cold climates. Enemies: Any who would burn or raze or clear excessively in pristine, areas. Allies: The Darians have none. As much as most races appreciate them for their beauty, their oddness, or their occasional support in defending their lands from invading armies

Although they are known to take up arms at times. form an edge unmatched by knives made from most mundane ores and can cut thick ship lines with ease. they are typically so sick of overexposure that they leave without delay and some never return. Favored Gods: Nearly every Darian worships Kia in some form or another. most Darians get everything they need in their homeland. fins somewhere on body • Racial Bonus – Breathe and speak in water Race Info Appearance: Nearly all Szurines have multicolored skins. Darians are often considered too flighty and uncommitted to the causes that many races consider important and the Darians simply do not. but until they reach the age in which they begin to feel they can sustain themselves. Attitudes about Money: Of those who remain in their place of origin. Whosoever holds sway over the mother is a different story. Among the cities especially one can find a Darian who has indulged him or herself with trinkets or clothing to accent their natural forms. Also. as well. Interaction w/other races: Only the Sea Dwarves have any kind of enduring contact with the Szurines. but in actuality the metal itself occurs naturally in the coastal environments they inhabit. many are quick to find ways of accumulation. Favored Weapons: None. Sea Dwarf metallurgists account for the steel's properties as a superior application of metal knowledge on their part. This type of behavior has come to be expected and most mothers understand and even nurture the urge to break free. The majority of the populations reside within 10 miles of a given coast and occasionally will venture inland provided an estuary is close by. the only type that can withstand the caustic salt environment without corroding in a week's time.

All accounts of Szurine history are told as stories from generation to generation. when a river meets the sea there is some interaction there. Those that do not survive were obviously unfit and those that do must have the qualities for survival necessary to live on successfully. Passing of tradition/history: Entirely verbal. Most Szurines meet their end before those 100 years are up due to the rigors of undersea life. Szurines typically revere those who show the greatest survival ability. In addition. the Szurines have evolved into a race that matures at a much faster rate in order to ensure that a sustainable number of offspring survive to the reproductive ages. but reaching the end of such a span is highly uncommon. Age Increments: They have a very short yet brutal maturing period. it is heard that a Szurine will attack another. but there is no socially acceptable reason for one Szurine to eat another's flesh. but this is in only the most extreme cases. Racial expressions: Curses: Phrases: Slang: Mouthbreather – Non-aquan race Greetings: Historical figures: None widely known. Afterlife: No such beliefs. some of the larger sea predators have been known to catch an occasional Szurine off guard and make a meal of them. but local groups may have heroes of their own. Games involving provoking sharks or delving into undersea caves with no source of illumination are some of the many ways the adolescent Szurine do what the mature ones consider a favor to the race as a whole. due to the fiercely competitive environment they inhabit. the oldest Szurines are still alive because of a superior instinct and cunning.elves. In general. Everyone knows it is harsh competition to stay properly nourished. most Szurine will opt to starve to death rather than be known as a cannibal. the younger Szurine typically engage in behavior that their elders recognize as suicidal. Very rarely. Class / skill specialty: Come back to this Natural enemies: Pirates. Age of race: Old (but how old?

they also have little to no benefit to offer any potential allies as they have no central government. .World location historically/now: See habitat.

The only other group that compares is the Darians. No real Szurine civilization per se. Makeup in “fishy” design/pattern of choice. they exhibit no favoritism to them as the rest of the family and much of the community take responsibility for raising one another and can form considerably large schools when a successful group finds an area that is particularly rich with food and resources.

At that point you can spend all of your XP that you earn each event but you don’t get the points that were spent for you back. they are considered to be spent on the racial abilities you have gained.Privilege Races: What is a Privilege Race? – A Privilege Race is a race that is available to all players to play as that has extra benefits in the form of skills. They are cumulative. As your character level increases you will gain the skills listed at each character level of your race. so if you gain Least Drain Life at each level form 1 through 5 it means that at level 5 you will have 5 uses per refresh of Least Drain Life. Half is automatically spent for you on your Privilege Race. Once you have reached True Monster you have the option of spending your XP that you earn each event on more racial abilities. meaning that you are barely showing your racial powers. Playing a Privilege Race also has its downfalls: until you reach the full potential of your race(either level 8 or 10 depending on your race) you only receive half of the XP you earn every game to spend yourself. Privilege Races carry much heavier costuming requirements than the other races do. You still gain levels and accrue total XP at the same rate but can only spend half until you reach the highest level of that race and gain the True Monster attribute. so don’t play one if you don’t think you can meet the appropriate costuming requirements. though you are displaying all of the physical features of your race.

How much mana do I have? – Your character’s mana is determined based on the number of spells of each level that he knows. though you may purchase all the spells of a certain level if you wish. from the forces of all the different kinds of magic that exist. and can even be manifested by individuals using their mind or soul. and they all draw on different kinds of power.

Branching for spells – Branching for spells is slightly more complicated than branching for skills. any time you would have to make an OOG statement while you are stating your incantation your spell is considered interrupted. Also. In addition. certain high level spells have out of game clarifications built into their incantations.

This spell may also work on other items, but in a case of an item that is not a weapon or armor it must be cast in the presence of a GM. Incant: “…I mend this (state item name).” Mind Quickening Trt10 Type: Attribute This skill allows the user to quicken any non-mass effect Mind-Effect spell they cast. To do this they must spend 2 extra mana when they cast the spell and they only state the spell effect and then the “magic” tag at the end to denote that it is a spell-like ability that is resisted as a normal spell. A quickened spell has no In-Game statement. Quickened spells may be cast even when silenced.

Always be as courteous as possible with anyone you are fighting with. If you do so. “Hold Game” – Yell this if you see an emergency situation that requires the attention of everyone around. Situations where someone is not taking the effect of weapon strikes that connect with them and the attacker is uninformed are a major cause of combat frustration. They may choose to still take the effect. whether it is the case or not. Being actively engaged in combat means someone that is actively fighting someone else in melee combat or moving to make an offensive action against a target that is within 10 feet of you. If not.

When it does happen try not to get angry at whoever did it and remove yourself from the situation if necessary. or deflect an attack into an illegal target. If you feel that your opponent is swinging too hard it is your right to let him know and that person is required to lessen the strength of their weapon strikes.

It is also a good idea to use a word other than “Help” so that people don’t get confused as to whether there is an Out of Game emergency or not. Variations on this command word are “Clarify. It is always smart to travel around the game area with at least one other person in case an injury or emergency occurs. A clarification should usually take no longer than a few seconds.

If used after a “Hold Game” when everyone is taking a knee it should be preempted by a statement such as “Everyone up that’s getting up” so that everyone around can get back to their places that they were in when the “Hold Game” was called.
