Who is running the upcoming campout? Any pre adventure info? Remember when people posted stuff a month beforehand to garner interest...

Can't we just show up, figure out what's going, do stuff then get drunk and have fun?

I have a relatively simple campout idea. I have no idea how many of my boyz will be available, but I'd be willing to write up something and help with the campout. If folks are interested, drop me a line.

The above post made me realize how my post probably came off. I actually am involved in running this campout, for the record. So stay home because I'm gonna enforce the rules of Darkon!

Yep I need a good hype to have me drag my ass 3 hours to reunion. If I don't see anything to bring me there, I stay home. I don't need to get drunk and stumble around campsites, I stopped being 21 a long time ago :)

Who said anything about stumbling? Smart people sit at the fire and get others to bring you beer.

And if ya wanna find excuses to not go, cool. One less person to be there sucking the fun out of it for everyone else.

LOL yep, that's what I do, suck the fun out of it for others :)

Sorry I remember when people used to care about their adventures enough to post some * about them in advance on the boards. Different times.

Considering that the pre-adv isn't for another week just about, hold your horses.

We don't want to give anything away just yet.

Hard to argue against a 3 hour drive, since I moved to York P.A. I've been feeling your pain. Fingers where you live?

I dunno. I've driven 12 hours one way to go to campouts many times and not known a d*mned thing about what the adventure was about and didn't need to.

Maybe hanging out around a campfire with friends after fighting people is my idea of fun. Maybe its not yours. Oh well.

I'll be there having fun regardless of any info given.

We have helpers driving 4 and six hours for this campout, York isn't as bad as it can get.

Essex. Ive driven 6 hours for campouts, just to come and fight for the day and head home that night. Ya'll don't need to post *. I can just tell you from experience that when a campout happens and people don't know anything about it, it influences their decision on whether or not they want to spend x amount of time driving out to something.

Event A boasts a huge costume ball on Friday Night, with the King of Darkon being murdered by one of the guests. This throws the Realm into chaos as people are accused, tempers flare, and intrigue abounds. Saturday there are all sorts of things going on that result from the King's death, adventure, monsters, political assasinations and machinations.

Event B says nothing

I know which event I would spend my time attending.

As far as hanging out around a campfire drinking with friends, it sure is fun. I do it twice a year with my friends at our Spring and Fall "Daddy's Camping Trip". All Dads and Kids, moms get the weekend off. And I dont have to drive 3 hours for it =P.

Actually, I am new to Darkon and I am considering going to this event. Any info would be much appreciated. I have been perusing your site, looking for Event Pages, and I see nothing. Is there another location where this stuff gets written up?

There's a brief synopsis on the in-character boards. If it will encourage you to come out, my country will be up to ridiculous shenanigans regardless of other factors.

Awesome! I see the synopsis, so I semi-understand the adventure.

My questions are a touch more mundane in nature.
1- Do I have to Pre-Reg?
2- What is the cost, to attend?
3- Will there be a Feast?
4- Will my mundane tent be a problem?
5- Is there potable water onsite?
6- Is there civilization nearby, for any forgotten essentials?
7- Will me not having a campsite, or unit, be a problem?

Other than that, I think I am in good shape. I plan on stopping by for check out some "ridiculous shenanigans"! Which camp?

1. just show up you pay at site no pre reg is done
2. it is 5 dollars for the weekend
3. no official feast - different groups at the event have camp feasts but normally they are not advertised - it is my understanding that the country and people running it will have food available for in game coin but I will let them deny or confirm this
4. your tent is no problem
5. no
6. stores are about 10-15 min away max and you will see them when you get off the highway exit
7. not a problem some groups like to have newer players join them when you arrive just ask around and I am sure someone will be happy to have you join them - you can actually ask here on the board as well to see what countries are interested in allowing you to camp with them I am sure many will speak up


hope that helps any other questions feel free to send me a private message

If anyone is interested in a swordarm for the weekend,I am game. I should have passing gear, and I am self sufficient. I will make a 10'x10', footprint. I will not be there til around, 7:30pm, Friday night.

If you see a bunch of guys wearing yellow and talking in orc accents, that'll be us. You're welcome to run with us if your character doesn't mind hanging out with smelly greenskins. We also interact with a lot of other countries in Darkon and we'd be happy to introduce you and show you around.

Thanks, Thrush! I appreciate the seal o approval! (Makes me all warm and gooey inside) I had to quit drinking though, so I am not nearly as fun. ;)
