Origins 2008!!!!!

Postby Peewee » Tue Mar 18, 2008 9:53 am

Greetings all,

So, as we move towards the end of March, Origins 2008 and the Living
Arcanis schedule approach the forefront of my concerns. Without
getting into the specifics of what slots each event is running in
(that information will be available from GAMA and Origins before and
during the registration process), I would like to offer you the blurbs
for the adventure that leads into Origins, and the events at Origins
itself.

We are pleased to announce that the first Hard Point of Year 5 of the
Story Arc will be released, for general play, one month prior to
Origins (expect to see it around the last weekend of May; a firm
release date will be posted as soon as we are able to).

We are pleased to offer the following events at Origins itself:
- Hard Points Two, Three and Four of Year Five
- An Origins exclusive Battle Interactive
- An Origins exclusive LARP
- The first Introductory adventure of Year Five

The adventure blurbs, and authors, are all listed following the end of
this message. There may be a few edits to these, however, this should
give you a decent idea of where things are headed for Origins.

Finally, a word about judge recruitment. This year at Origins we are
running a slightly abated slate of events compared with last year
(which was quite heavy, possibly too heavy to be managable). However,
we are looking to support as many players during these events, and so
during most of the core convention slots (Friday and Saturday;
Thursday to a lesser extent) we need between 20 and 40 GMs for Arcanis
events.

I would encourage everyone who is thinking about GM'ing to spend a few
moments and consider potential schedules in prepation for the GM
recruitment. I an anticipating that GM recruitment will open for all
Gathering Events starting around the beginning of April. I will post
here when it is open.

Cheers,

James Zwiers

LA-HP5-01 Shattering the Light
By Henry Lopez and James Zwiers
Scattered to the four winds, and disarrayed, the light is no longer
there to guide and shield man from the darkness of the times.

This is an outdoors, investigative adventure, that also involves a
modicum of combat. As such, players are advised to be prepared for any
number of eventualities.

This Living Arcanis Hard Point adventure is designed for characters of
7th to 21st level (APLs 7-21).
Characters above 21st level may not be played in this adventure.

LA-HP5-02 To Peel the Veil of Lightness and Dark
by Henry Lopez and Chris Sanders
The Seers of the Tultipetans arrive unexpectedly begging for the
heroes' assistance. The Blessings of Larissa are being corrupted and
Emperor Calsestus appears to be at the center of this malady as does
the fate of the people Cafela and the beauteous city of Savona.

This adventure follows the events of LA-HP5-01 Shattering the Light,
however, they may be played out of order if desired.

This Living Arcanis Hard Point adventure is designed for characters of
7th to 20th level (APLs 7-21).
Characters of 21st level and above may not be played in this scenario.

LA-HP5-03 Hero to Some, Butcher to Others
By Henry Lopez and James Zwiers
With the death of the great general, both the Loyalists and the Rebels
rush to court the allegiance of the previous Defender of the Empire.
Yet there was a reason why the old general retired, reasons that still
hang heavy on his mind – and there is nothing more dangerous than the
sins of the past made whole.

This adventure follows the events of LA-HP5-02 To Peel the Veil of
Lightness and Dark, however, they may be played out of order if
desired.

This Living Arcanis Hard Point adventure is designed for characters of
7th to 20th level (APLs 7-21).
Characters of 21st level and above may not be played in this scenario.

LA-HP5-04 Suffer Not a Traitor to Live
By Henry Lopez and Zoe Mora
The Velvet Glove of the Empire has finally been removed. Traitors to
the Empire have been found hiding in the highest levels of the
government and a purge is nigh. But an old patron of the heroes begs
their help in rescuing these men and is ready to pay with information
– information that may shape the ongoing Civil War and perhaps the
fate of the Coryani Empire itself.

This adventure follows the events of LA-HP5-03 Hero to Some, Butcher
to Others, however, they may be played out of order if desired.

This Living Arcanis Hard Point adventure is designed for characters of
7th to 20th level (APLs 7-21).
Characters of 21st level and above may not be played in this scenario.

LA-INTRO5-01 Wheels of Commerce
By James Zwiers
Altheria, nation of scholars, is both reclusive and isolated, but also
an integral trading partner amongst the human nations due to its
monopoly on the creation of Blast Powder, the second gift of Althares.
Now, Altheria is beholden to the Seremasi Enclave of Elorii, with whom
they have signed a Treaty of Protection.

This adventure was written to provide a strong introduction to the
Arcanis setting, and the rules-base that is used in the campaign.
While this adventure includes tiering for APLs above 1, it was written
for 1st level characters, and players are encouraged to play new
characters in this adventure, although they are certainly allowed to
play any character that falls within the listed level range. This
adventure includes pre-generated characters for players who do not
have a character.

This Living Arcanis Introductory adventure is designed for characters
of 1st to 7th level (APLs 1-7).
Characters of 8th level and above may not be played in this scenario.

LA-BI5-01 Departure of Fate
By James Zwiers (and others)
Affairs are coming to a head, and Savona lies at the heart of a new
conflict. Will you stand for Cafela, or against Cafela, in the battles
that ensue? Choose your side wisely, for fate is a fickle mistress at
the best of times; and these are hardly the best of times.

This adventure takes place following the events of LA-HP5-02 To Peel
the Veil of Lightness and Dark; it is highly recommended that you have
played that event before participating in this event. This event will
not be released for homeplay. As a Battle Interactive event, players
are encouraged to bring characters of a more martial bent; however, as
this will be largely urban conflict, more cautious or stealthy
characters may also find themselves desired.

This Living Arcanis Battle Interactive is designed for characters of
3rd to 20th level (APLs 3-21).
Characters of 21st level and above may not be played in this event.

LA-LARP Congress of the Nawals
By Henry Lopez and James Zwiers
The Nawals of the Yhing-Hir have, for the first time in centuries,
convened a congress of all the tribes. To this event, they have
invited foreign dignitaries from across Onara; it would appear that
the Yhing-Hir are troubled, and must seek aid from those around them.

This event follows the events of LA-HP5-01 Shattering the Light; it is
recommended you have played that adventure before participating in
this event.

This Living Arcanis LARP is designed for characters of all levels (no APLs).

Now that I have tried your URL and taken the c out of the end. I still get: "Server not found, Firefox can't find the server at http://www.originsgamingconvention.com. I surmise their website is not up.
