"Lord Tristan Kensington-Smythe, President of the Cardiff Assembly, does hereby invite you to his estate in Cardiff for a send-off celebration. As the brave women and men of the Second Expedition, it falls upon you to bring the Cardiff nations to the new world. This will be a grand opportunity to meet your Ambassadors, as well as your fellow settlers. Casual attire is encouraged, as are your standard acoutrements and regalia. "
"Mrs. Pauline Oxborrow, President of Fortress Laramie, invites you to a casual gathering of nations at the Old Common Hall in Fortress Laramie. As the nations of the Treaty of Cardiff encroach upon our lands, it is important that we present a unified stance when dealing with them. If you are interested in making a change in our world, show up, meet your nation's Delegates and give a lending hand."
Keystone Event 0.1: "The Oncoming Storm"
1:00 PM - 6:00 PM
Unlike other events, we plan our hotel events as part LARP event, part social vacation. In other words, we encourage you to stay the weekend, play the game and spend time with your fellow players and cast. Here's how it works.
We expect to have much of our cast at the hotel by Friday evening. We will likely gather at the hotel's watering hole, chat, laugh, maybe even bring some board games with us. There will likely be some sort of trivia contest, where you can win fabulous prizes. At some point, cast will scamper off to handle last-minute preparations while the rest of you laugh the evening away.
Come Saturday, we run the event from 1:00 PM to 6:00 PM. You know, that LARP thing we're here to do. After that, we will break for dinner and head out in different groups around the immediate area. Eat, laugh, take a shower, hit the hotel's pool and jacuzzi or take a break in your room, it's up to you. Later that evening, we'll meet again, likely in the same room we ran the event, where we'll give out awards in a lighthearted awards ceremony. Someone will invariably serve as bartender, we'll bring board games, laugh, chat and generally have a good time. Hit the sack whenever you feel like it.
Whenever we are up and about on Sunday morning, those of us who find each other will likely grab breakfast, hang out and have fun. Sooner or later, you'll have to head home after saying goodbye to your new friends.
Sounds fun, right? All you have to do to enjoy all this fun is sign up for the event and find a room in which to crash. We have a room block under the name "WINGED THRONE" (our parent company), which will give you access to a room at the discounted rate of $105.00/night. Hotels.com currently lists rooms for that weekend at $175.00/night, so that is a good deal. The cut-off date for the block discount is Saturday, April 25, so make your reservations soon!
Thank you very much for joining us and becoming a part of the Keystone world. We look forward to seeing you in the Shattered West. Yeehaw!
