Frontier Dawn Official Rulebook v2.0

(last updated February 2018)

This is the official rulebook for the Frontier Dawn LARP 2018 season. This rulebook will guide you in making your character and give you an outline of how to play the game. Please check out the lore descriptions on our website.

Safety Terms & Rules

Holds and Clarifies

Hold:

When someone says “Hold!” it means a dangerous or serious situation is occurring. Everyone is required to take a knee until the hold is resolved. Anyone else who hears “Hold!” should also call it out to ensure everyone hears it and is aware of the pause in the game.

Clarify: 

Sometimes during the game people will say, “Clarify” before asking a question out of game. This can be done by any player when they would like to know an effect or another appropriate clarification about a situation.

Caution:

When someone says, “Caution!” it means that a dangerous situation is about to arise. An example would be if you are fighting a non-player character(NPC) and you notice they are about to get to close to a bench where they could potentially trip. You could say, “Caution. There’s a bench there.”

Scene:

This is called when a staff member is about to describe an in-game effect or paint a complex picture in the player characters’(PCs’) heads such as, “The ground fills with lava and huge demonic hands spring forth.”

White Headbands:

Frequently someone calling a scene will have a white headband on. This is to signify that they are not in-game. Any time that anyone (staff, NPC, or PC) is out of game, they should wear a white headband. You may also hold your weapon above your head, or place a closed fist above your head to signify you are out of game.

Rules of Consent and Personal Safety


At FD we use 4 techniques of handling intense situations. It is hard to know every players’ fear or keep track of what may cause duress for some people, but we want to make sure our players are safe while at the same time create situations in-game that cause intense drama and have a element of horror. We will never have content aimed at suicide or sexual abuse.
*Please note that we will have immersive, intense, potentially stressful and horrific mods that are meant to enhance, dramatize, and thrill, but the player’s safety and mental well being are always our top priority.

The Stoplight Rule:

If you are ever in a situation and feel it is approaching an uncomfortable place say “yellow light” to let the player or NPC know that they need to cool it down. If things continue say “red light” and that person has to stop, step away, and let you collect yourself in any way you see fit.

The Space Rule:

Sometimes people need time to re-energize or take it easy. We will never penalize anyone for needing some time to collect themselves or recharge. If you need to step away from a mod, you have the right to not be questioned about it and have your space. You may need to clarify that you are out of game if approached.
*Please note that you are responsible for your own self care. If you need to step back the mod will continue unless a hold is called.

The Rule of Consent:

PCs and NPCs must ask consent before physically touching you. Physical role play in our game is defined by touching the arms, legs, upper back, or stomach only, when asking for physical RP permission please state “do you consent to physical RP?” If you wish for a player not to touch you in any of the assigned physical RP spots please state “No,” or “ Yes, but just not my X.” Most in-game props not on your character can be physically taken with the exception of bags. Players are not permitted to touch, look inside or move another player’s bag or pouch without permission in or out of game.

The Orange Wristband Rule:

Players who wish to have their boundaries pushed by dramatic, intense situations and horrific scenes may choose to wear an orange wristband. This indicates that you are fine with small amounts of physical roleplay, physical challenges, and horrific scenes. If we think there will be orange content on a mod, the NPC hooking it will say “things could get hairy”. ‘Hairy’ mods will never have anything on them that would punish you progression or powerwise. Players have the right to ask the marshal in the white headband if something involves X content. That marshal will reply yes or no. Please note that NPCs may follow this rule as well. If you do not see an NPC with an Orange wristband you must ask permission first before physical RP.

Red Headbands:

For a variety of reasons, players with red headbands are not participating directly in combat in-game. Players wearing red headbands may not touch others or be touched during combat except by spell packets. If someone wishes to attack someone with a red headband with their melee weapon they swing the weapon in the air in front of the person with the red headband and say their damage and any effects.

Combat

Frontier Dawn is a  lightest touch, boffer/latex LARP. In order to maintain a safe and immersive combat experience all players and NPCs are required to roleplay damage when taking hits. Please be mindful of your surroundings when in combat. Charging into combat is not permitted.  All combat rules apply to both PCs and NPCs.

Attacking

Weapon strikes

All weapon strikes must be lightest touch and cannot be delivered to a player’s head, groin, feet or hands. Thrusting is allowed with boffer weapons only after a member of rules staff has determined that it has sufficient padding on the tip and as long as the weapon retains that padding on its tip.

When delivering base weapon attacks you must call damage number and, if applicable, source type. Example: “1 fire”  When delivering multiple base weapon attacks you must complete the damage+source script before delivering the next strike.

When delivering a skill with your weapon you must state the skill name before you hit with your weapon. If your swing hits, then you must immediately state the damage and effect before doing anything else. Example: “eye gouge” Hit. “1 damage, blind”

Spell/Packet strikes

Spell packets must be lobbed or tossed and should not be thrown in a dangerous manner.  Just like weapon strikes, they cannot be aimed at the face, hands, or groin. This applies to packet archery as well.

When delivering a spell you must first complete the spell verbal, damage, and effect. When delivering multiple spells you must complete the verbal+damage+effect script before delivering the next spell. (See example above)

Ranged strikes

When delivering a ranged attack with a bow or crossbow you must count out loud, “Aiming 1, Aiming 2, Aiming 3,” before throwing a packet at your target.  You must have a bow physical representation(phys rep) in one hand in order to deliver this attack.

When delivering multiple skills, spells or base attacks you must complete the skill+damage+effect scripting as outlined above for the first attack before calling the other.  For example: weapon strike “skill name, damage, effect”, weapon strike “damage” etc.

Defending

Defenses must be called within 5 seconds of taking damage or an effect. There are 4 types of defenses:

Block

Defends against a body attack

Ward

Defends against a mind attack

Willpower

Defends against a spirit attack

Mitigate

Defends against the damage from any type of attack. Does not defend against effects.

Characters get 1 use of a defense when they take 1 insight in an attribute list and unlock subsequent defenses when spending additional insight depending on which attributes they spend insight in. Defences are unlocked every odd insight of a Path or Attribute list.

Shields and weapons do not block spells unless altered by enchantments/modifications to do so. 

Armor

Any player can wear any armor type for it's base benefit. Each armor type offers a certain number of armor points(AP). While worn, any physical damage you take will affect your armor first. Once your armor points have been used the armor is considered damaged and offers no protection until you recuperate(recoup). You may recoup a damaged set of armor for 3 events, after which it is considered broken and must be repaired by a Smith/Tailor or replaced.

You must have an armor phys rep that covers at least your torso in order to gain its benefit. If you are wearing more than one armor material on your torso you may specify during the check in assessment which material you wish to count towards your AP. You must be wearing your armor phys rep in order to use your AP. Exceptions to this rule, such as dangerous weather conditions in summer months, will be made by a staff member and announced before lay on.

EVA foam armor is allowed as an armor phys rep as long as it is crafted to accurately represent its in-game material. Armor will be assessed for its armor type by a staff member at check in and you will be issued an item card by a staff member.

Armor Types

Light Armor (3 AP)

Cloth, Soft Hide, Soft Leather

Medium Armor (5 AP)

Hardened Leather, Chainmail

Heavy Armor (7 AP)

Plate, Bone, Scale

Death & Dying

Death Count

When your health is reduced to 0 you begin bleeding out. While you are in your death count you are comatose. A player’s base death count is 4 minutes long. This time can be lengthened with certain passive skills or abilities. Being healed during your death count revives you and allows you to regain consciousness. If you are not healed by the end of your death count you have bled out and died.

Detriments

Once you have died you must report to the NPC hut to choose a detriment from a deck of cards. The detriment affects your character for three consecutive events and you can acquire more than one detriment at a time. Each time you draw a detriment a death card is added to your deck in its place. If you draw the death card you may not be able to resurrect and your character is considered “permed”. You will then be allowed to go through final judgment. Every death increases your odds of drawing a death card.

Resurrection

After dying and receiving a detriment you return to the in-game location of your body.  Your body regenerates itself and you regain consciousness. You retain the memory of every aspect of your death. Resurrection only happens in the new land and players have not witnessed this happening before on the old continent. Players are encouraged to roleplay the effect this event has on their characters mentally and emotionally.

Weapons

Note: Any player can use a shield as well as any weapon for it’s base damage. This includes fist boffers.

Safety

All weapons must be boffer or latex and meet the length restrictions defined below. Players must have their weapons assessed for safety and approved by a staff member before the start of each event. Any weapon that is unsafe is not to be used or worn at event.

If at any time during an event another player or staff member feels a weapon is or has become unsafe, the player must allow a marshall to re-check the weapon. If the weapon is deemed to be unsafe, it will be removed from the game and returned to the player’s sleeping area or be held at the staff hut until the end of the event. It is the player's responsibility to maintain their weapons and gear and to secure a replacement for a broken or unsafe weapon. The following are examples of conditions that would make a weapon unsafe: exposed cores, sharp edges, cracked duct tape and exposed foam, cosmetic attachments of material other than foam or latex such as metal studs, rope on border areas.

Weapon Size

Small Weapon

Length 18-24”. Base damage of 1
Example: Dagger, Baton, Scepter

One-Handed

Length 24-42”. Base damage of 1.

Example: Short Sword, Axe, Hammer, Mace, Club

Bastard Sword/Spear

Length 40-50”. Base damage equal to how it’s wielded by the player. Weapons this size may not be dual-wielded.

Two-Handed

Length 48-60”. Polearm/Staff Length 50-60”. Base damage of 2.

Example: Longsword, Broadsword, Axe, Polearm, Great hammer, Staff

Ranged

Must have boffer safe phys rep for ranged weapons. Packet archery only. Bows may not be used to bash or push a player or NPC. Bows may be used to block weapon strikes in combat.

Fists/Claw

Length 18”. Base damage of 1. All players can use fists.

Hex Actions

Tools: Each player will choose a tool to come into game with at insight 1. This will allow them to perform a hex action in between events by submitting the hex action form on time. You can upgrade your tool for better results, or purchase new ones from crafters at game to open other hex action options. Human players have the option of starting with 1 of every gathering tool.  Players are not limited to one tool and may purchase additional tools, or trade their tool with other players.

Players can choose one option from explore, gather, build, use building, research, or write letters in between each event attended for their hex action. Exploring and gathering will automatically gather surplus goods. Surplus goes into a shared pool for the town and is required for building.

Actions that earn renown:

Explore: Select a location on the hex map that is black but adjacent to an open hex and select an explorers tool to use. All the players in the exploring party must reach the ECL requirement of the hex. Earn 5 renown and random resources. The amount of these resources is less than with the ‘gather’ hex action.

The Exploring Party: Other players may go with an explorer to help with the ECL requirement, but only the player who is considered “exploring” needs the appropriate tool and gains the renown. Other players will submit a ‘gather’ action on the hex being explored for their hex action

While exploring it is possible to encounter random scenarios that may cross over into in-game mods that will start immediately at the beginning of the event. This is very rare and determined by pre designated locations and conditions on the hex map.

Gather: Select a location already unlocked on the hex map and a gathering tool to use. Earn resources based on the type of tool you use and 1 renown.

Request to Build: Select a blueprint that has been unlocked from the library on the hex map page. Players must reach requirements of that building and the appropriate town surplus must be available. You assist in building this building. Note most buildings will be built in the town hex A-1 but there may be some exceptions which will be noted by the blueprint. Earn 5 renown. If your request is denied based on available resources, you will be given the option to choose another action.

Use Building: Select an existing building and use the effects of that building. See Blueprints for more details.

Actions that require Renown:

Research: Choose a topic from the drop down menu of topics available that month that you have the required renown for. Renown cost to be determined each month. The player will receive 1-3 paragraph response from staff by next event.

Write Letters: Choose a location from the drop down menu. Renown cost to be determined each month.  Write a 1-3 paragraph letter to a character in that location. These locations are based on where the boats are traveling back to in Erolan. The player will receive 1-3 paragraph response from staff by next event.

Searching/Loot

The primary way in which players will earn resources is between events through actions they perform within their chosen tools. However, sometimes NPC’s will drop specific items that players can gather. Not every monster or enemy will have loot. All players are able to gather basic components. You must RP 10 counts of searching by saying out loud, “Searching 1, searching 2, searching 3, etc.” and the NPC will then hand you an item if they have one.

Looting another PC’s dead body is considered pickpocketing and generally frowned upon in-game so be sneaky about it if you wish to do it at all. You must RP 10 counts of searching and then contact a martial. You may not remove any items from a player until a martial is present. This is the only instance in which you can use pick-pocket without purchasing it from an attribute list.

Traps/Locks

Traps are made by crafters but can be set by any player. They are represented in-game by item cards. The item card must be secured to a packet or other in-game object and you must roleplay 10 counts of arming by saying out loud, “Arming 1, arming 2, etc.” at which point the trap is considered active.  All traps have a 5 foot radius from the point of origin and last until they are triggered or disarmed. Traps placed by players require that player to remain in line of sight to call out when the trap is triggered. The phys reps for traps can be anything from brightly colored spell packets to paper plates. Player traps must have written descriptions attached to them so that the target can take the effect quickly.

Locks are made by crafters but can be set by any player. A lock’s ownership is written on its item card and only that player can open it freely. When you sell or lend a lock you are transferring ownership even if temporarily to another player. A lock’s ownership is specified on its item card. If no owner is specified then ownership defaults to the crafter. To set a lock, attach its item card to the door or object.  Locks have different tiers that correspond with their difficulty. Locks can be reused, however if a lock has been picked or broken it must be repaired or replaced.

Character Creation

New players start off with 1 insight and 10 build.  You gain 1 additional insight and 5 build for each game attended, with the option to buy 2 purchasable build. Currently, the most insight you can spend on base lists is 20.

Insight and Effective Character Level (ECL)

Every time you invest insight it is counted towards your total character level. Insight is gained each event and is used to unlock levels in the attributes and paths. The total spent insight is equal to your player level regardless of which path or attribute you choose. For example: you may have 2 insight into body and 1 insight into mind but your effective character level or ECL is 3. Your friend has 3 insight in mind and is also has 3 ECL 3 character. ECL determines how many uses of a skill you have per recoup according to the chart below:

Effective Character Level and the Common List

As players gain ECLs they gain access to skills on the common list. These skills are only unlocked once the player has spent the insight in a path or attribute. Insight is not spent on the common list.

Recuperation

In order to recuperate your skill uses, you must meditate at a leystone for 10 minutes. Leystones will be placed throughout the town and players will be notified as to where they are located on the campsite.

Build

Players start with 10 build to use when making their character and gain 5 build each event attended. Build is used to purchase skills from available path and attribute levels.  A skill’s build cost is always equal to its tier unless otherwise noted as a passive. Once a skill is purchased you may use it as many times as your character level permits per recoup period. When you purchase a skill before a game you can use it the next game.

Building A Character

First, you will need to choose a race and a kingdom. See our website at www.frontierdawnlarp.com to read more about each option. Then you will pick a hex action tool to gather resources that can be used for crafting, trading or upgrading the town. After picking a hex action tool you will need to choose an attribute or path. Paths are have crafting skills as well as some combat abilities, while attributes are focused more on combat abilities. Only one path may be chosen.  There is also a common list that can add greater depth to your character.

Frontier Dawn is a classless system and you are free to combine any attribute(s) with any path as long as you have the necessary build and insight. For example: you could be an Orc/Alchemist from Yomi who uses body and mind.

RACIAL SKILLS

You can only choose 1 of these skills for your character. All Racial skills are once per day.

Players defend from these skills depending on how the skill is delivered. Ie. weapon strike defended by Block, packet strike defended by Ward.

SPIRIT

“The world is becoming a dangerous place. I can feel it in my bones. It will need great leaders of spirit to steer the world in the direction it must go” - Unknown

Hallowed:

The power one receives from a deity in return for service can be deadly to the deity’s foes or beneficial to the anointed’s allies. Maintaining the facets and beliefs of that deity is integral. Every deity’s service is different.  Hallowed skills are delivered through praying or other roleplay of a sacred nature. 

Sonus:

Certain people can feel the latent power and thrum of a song,  dance, or poem. Some are able to manifest this power to aid themselves and their allies. The devastating powers of a trained bard have been known to shatter mountains and inspire armies to win against overwhelming odds. Sonus skills are delivered through song or performance.  

Primal:

These are the forces of the natural world and those of the spirits of one’s ancestors and deceased animals. Those blessed by the primal forces feel a call to protect all that is natural and verdant. One who disrupts the sanctity of nature or the spirits has to contend with those blessed with the power of the primal. Primal skills are delivered by communing with nature in various ways.

Outfitter

Outfitter’s Kit

Using a kit an outfitter may craft cloth, leather, or metal objects. Tailors weave fibers into cloth, tanners tan hides into leathers, and smith’s refine raw ore into ingots. You may choose one source material for free, and buy additional source materials with build. 

Crafting:

After gathering the appropriate materials to match the schematic you wish to craft, you must roleplay working with your kit for one minute per tier of the object you wish to create with the schematic on hand. If you are interrupted during this time, the materials are not wasted, but you must begin the process anew once you return to your crafting. The tier of the materials must match the tier of the schematic. Once you are finished, you may show your expended materials to the quartermaster or another martial, who will subtract the resources for you and give you a signed item card for the new item. Note that armor must be repaired after 3 months of taking damage.

Alchemist

Alchemists use various ingredients gathered from the land to make potions, oils, and dusts that can heal, poison, enhance and have other strange effects. In order to do this they must first find ingredients and then experiment with them to determine what they do.

Tools

Every alchemist starts off with a mortar and pestle as well as a field journal to keep track of their research. Crafters are responsible for maintaining and bringing these tools to game and will not be able to craft at an event without it.

Discovering What Ingredients Do and the Field Journal

You can discover what new ingredients do in two ways. You can consume one portion of an ingredient to discover its effect by experiencing that effect on yourself. You can also create a potion with the new ingredient, though this may result in a dud if it contains the wrong combination of ingredients.

Crafting Potions and Other Alchemical Items

Mortars & pestles are used to make potions and other alchemical items. Your mortar has 6 slots but only the first is available to you at insight 1. You can unlock additional slots for more advanced crafting by investing insight in the alchemist crafting tree. Using higher numbered slots allows you more portions and to use secondary, tertiary, or quaternary effects from an ingredient and to add enhancements. The table below shows which slots can be used for which effects.

To use your mortar & pestle place an ingredient in the slot that corresponds to the ingredient’s desired effect. Each slot can have up to 5 portions and more portions enhances the effect. If using multiple slots, the number of ingredients put in each slot must be equal, with the exception of enhancement ingredients*. Then you must RP crafting for 1 minute per slot until a maximum of 4 minutes. Once you are done, show your recipe to a martial. They will take your expended resources and give you an item card with the effects of your crafted item. Potions last up to 3 events.

*Enhancement ingredients alter the nature of the potion itself and not the effects a potion can have. The number of enhancement ingredients needs to match the largest number of portions in one slot.


Toxicity and Drinking Potions

You must roleplay drinking each potion. It must take at least 1 second per potion. The average person can only drink 3 medicinal and/or alteration potions per recoup. You cannot take any more without using a cleanser. If you take a 4th potion, you take the effect of that potion, but you fall unconscious.

Effects:

Ingredients have a primary effect as well as hidden effects. An ingredient’s effects can only be used by a crafter and all crafters have access to an ingredients primary effect.  A single ingredient can have a maximum of five different effects.

Medicinal Effects

Poisonous Effects

Alteration effects
