Sanctioned Events

There are three levels of “sanctioning” available for events run by factions and groups outside of the main CP events. Event organisers should consider discussing their event proposals with staff members, this is essential when a group is running an event on a particular faction’s land or concerning an ongoing plot in any way.

Level 1

CP gives permission to use the rules system within an event.

Whilst the activities and experiences the characters/group may have at this event may be included in the character ‘backgrounds’, the outcomes of the plot may not conflict or otherwise affect the main plot at CP events. If there may be an issue on this matter the organisers are advised to contact CP. If a conflict does arise between experiences at this type of event and the plot at the main CP campaign, the outcomes of a level 1 event will be ignored in favour of the main plot and cosmology. This level of sanctioning is appropriate for group-level events.

Level 2

CP gives permission to use the rules system within an event.

Plot for an event of this level MUST be written in conjunction with a member of CP staff, the plot will be examined by the CP plot team and approved to exist within the CP world. Any deaths that occur within an event will also be carried forward to the next CP event. The plot must be submitted to CP at least four weeks prior to the event in question. A sanctioning referee (to be mutually agreed with CP and the game organiser) must be invited to the event with expenses for travel and accommodation to be provided by the event organisers. This level of sanctioning is suitable for faction-level events.

Level 3

CP gives permission to use the rules system within an event.

Plot for an event of this level MUST be written in conjunction with a member of CP staff, the plot will be examined by the CP plot team and approved to exist within the CP world. Any deaths that occur within an event will also be carried forward to the next CP event. The plot must be submitted to CP at least four weeks prior to the event in question. A sanctioning referee (to be mutually agreed with CP and the game organiser) must be invited to the event with expenses for travel and accommodation to be provided by the event organisers. In addition, the event will have the benefit of foraging, alchemy and crafting research/production and a ritual circle (please note that in this instance the referee supporting the event must be a ritual circle marker, and the rituals intended for the weekend must be submitted to CP at least 2 weeks prior to the event). It may also be possible to support conjunctional magic, spell/skill research and other systems, pending suitable referee resource. There is an additional charge for CP administration for this type of event. This level of sanctioning is suitable for faction-level events intended to significantly affect ongoing plot, or for events run by the Game Team Referees.
