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.

“The Rigid Wilderness”

10th to 12th November 2017 A Celestial College Sanctioned event, open to all players

The search for Fae of house Mormoile has continued and with the help of many people, it has been confirmed that two still survive on the plane of Solid. Though their exact location has yet to be discerned, there is every hope of finding and recovering them. There exists another reason to visit this mysterious and static plane. Messages have been sent from Solid, some more aggressive than others, that suggest something quite important to Donald can be found there. The College have been given an opportunity to respond to this call, to visit the plane of solid and to resolve these issues. Few have ever ventured to Solid and little is known about what is to be found there. Leading a new expedition to another plane, the college will attempt to negotiate this alien land and get to the bottom of the mysteries that caused a hoard of rock beasts to plague the true plane in search of Donald. Perhaps whilst there they can make new and exciting discoveries, prime material for future seminars. Bring your books, bring your tools, bring your magics and bring your arms and armour. A keen mind, a stout heart and a strong arm, will all be of value.
OOC: Welcome to The Rigid Wilderness. A Celestial College Sanctioned event, Open to all players. This is a level 3 sanctioned event. This means foraging, scrounging, crafting, alchemy, conjunctional magic and all other types of research will be available and there will be an active ritual circle.

“House of the Unforgotten”

17th to 19th November 2017 Jhereg Faction Event

Despite the war raging across our plane and others, since the destruction of the Vallista in Nendya, Siberia has not known a peace like this for many years. With the creation of the Taken the veil between the world of the living and the Jhereg Spirit has become blurred, with Rapture’s gift not only bringing spirits back to the warband but also across Siberia. A peace like this finally gives time and cause for celebration both of those who are still with us and those who have died and joined with the Jhereg Spirit. It is at this time of year that great decisions are made about the future of our Nation and this year will be no different. Following the faction’s efforts in Oxford, what revelations will come to light this year? Will this peace last or is our nation about to be thrown into turmoil once again? The people of Greenvale offer our hospitality and invite all members of the Jhereg warband along with their friends and allies to join us for this years parliament and in celebrating this first festival of the dead, for those who walk with us will never be forgotten.
OOC: Cost for House of the Unforgotten is £55 – You can secure a place with a £20 deposit, this is unfortunately non refundable. All balances to be paid by Sunday 12th November.
