Re: Presidential Clarifications for 2012

Marshals will be enforcing the weapon cover rules. If it does not comply it fails. From the rulebook: The striking surfaces of all normal weapons must have a cloth cover of black, gray, or brown color.

Re: Minimum Garb Standards

If you have a question about garb and its appropriateness for Darkon send a photo to the EB, just make sure it is legal in the state we are playing and safe for work.

A Challange - The Role of the High King

There has been lots of IC attacks on the High King for his lack of response to the undead scourge. In fact almost every anti-royalty attack since the start of the year has been related to his lack of response. Further, several have become openly hostile and acted towards him as they would an enemy c...

Re: ruling on cure light wounds

I rolled around until my spellbook fell out of my pouch, then opened it with my nose, read the spell and got up to fight again. I thought that was cool, if its not then I have been rping wrong lol....

Re: Increased Dues Question

The fact is the Senate functions at an event at a site that almost universally has to be covered by insurance. Pay the dues. Because you also get credits when you pay the dues, you have to be in costume.

When the EB and NC meet at events, they pay the dues and are in costume.

Costume Rules

Folks, The Marshals have shown some leniency to folks with good costumes despite the wearing of symbols not part of Darkon. As has been the custom FOREVER, new Darkon participants have 3 events to get their act together and under the proposal before the EB they will get 5. I am asking you now, get y...
