January 2018 Shadow Accord
Located at:
Sound View Camp and Retreat Center
8515 Key Peninsula Hwy S
Longbranch, WA 98351

Do not arrive at site before 2:00 PM and do not enter site until the gate has been opened by one of our Executive Officers (Michael Osgood-Graver, Lorilynn Parker, Jeff Tabrum)

Please remember every weapon prop must be checked every time before you start game.

It’s a new year, and that means EVERYONE signs a new liability waiver! Please plan on filling one out at check in.

Please remember to follow the posted speed limits in the camp site. The ranger has mentioned he has seen people driving quite quickly in the past, and is concerned for the safety of his children, especially after dark. Please be courteous.

Last game there was a mold problem in two rooms of the Golden Horn (Calvinwood). We are hoping the site has fixed this by now. If not, people with respiratory and immune issues should have a back-up sleeping arrangement, just in case. Please see the XOs for an update on the condition of the building when you get to site.

If you get injured, even if it is a simple scrape, find a member of the safety staff immediately. If you do not know who is on staff and become injured, please make a request to any other nearby Player Characters that you need medical assistance by crossing your fingers over your head or loudly declaring “Stand Down” whichever is more possible given the situation. Current safety staff members are Kristie Neises, Susanna Lauder, Darian Boyer and Zack Rodriguez.
Its winter in the PNW and that means wet. Bring extra socks, blankets, changes of clothes, non-perishable food, and a cloak or other warm outerwear. No one wants to be wet all weekend. Keep an eye out for hypothermia. Warning signs are: Stiff fingers, uncontrollable shivering, confusion, lack of coordination, difficulty speaking, dizziness, lethargy. If you see these symptoms, please get the individual to a warm, dry location and alert a member of staff.

You may bring heaters to be placed in some of the tents provided by the camp, they must be checked by a member of safety, or an executive officer, prior to use. Any heaters left on and unattended will be turned off and removed from the tent, held at Storyteller camp for the duration of the event, we do not want any accidental fires.

Due to improper fire management we are not allowing live fires to be used without express permission. Please find a member of the XO team to present a fire bucket to for inspection if at any point during the weekend you wish to light a fire.

Remember! Only new players, and returning players who have given notice will have the ability to have a character CGed on site, the options for on site characters are limited.

If you go to StoryTeller Camp during the event and ask for your character to travel somewhere outside of Seaton Carew, you will likely be asked to NPC, or proceed to and OOG area prior to returning to game space. Please do not remain at StoryTeller camp to chat with other Players.

If your character dies, is imprisoned, or otherwise removed from town by an NPC, go to StoryTeller Camp. There you will have the following options:
1. Play a backup character which must have been checked in on Friday night
2. Ask to play an NPC.
3. Pack your things and leave site

If your character undergoes major character sheet changes (becoming a fomori, ghoul, or vampire) please remain in game space long enough to finish the scene you are in. When it appears appropriate to slip away, head to StoryTeller camp and inform them of the change. You will be given further instruction there.

Please take some time to review the rulebook and clarification document: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1mkG ... Utf86y5R7w
And the rulebook here: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B2khPW ... ZjWUU/view

If a call is used on you that you are not familiar with, politely raise a hand with two fingers crossed and ask the player who said the call what it does, they will help you understand the power and how to roleplay it’s effects

If you taught a character a new power or skill at the previous event and do not remember if you submitted the teaching form, please e-mail check-in IMMEDIATELY informing them of the teaching in question: sa.checkin@nwlarpers.org

If you sleep in a structure, please see that it returns to the way you found it once game has been called, Soundview loves how clean Shadow Accord keeps the site, let’s keep it that way.

All players should plan for their own meals, or make arrangements to purchase food in game. ANY players preparing food for other players in any of the kitchen spaces are required to have their Washington State food handlers permits. You may prepare your own food without a food handler’s permit but if using a kitchen space must be supervised by an individual with a food handler’s permit. Please get permission from whoever is managing kitchens prior to personal use.

Do note that the NWLARPers Anti-Harrassment Policy will be in full effect, please review the policy here: http://nwlarpers.org/sa-policies/

Check Lost & Found! It will be at ST camp. Shadow Accord has a one-game retention policy so make sure to claim your items or risk them being donated.

In the event of an emergency, SA’s safety team has prepared the following document: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1FNE ... qlJa0/edit
