Sunday 11th December, 1299

A city stands strong amongst the chaos of the north, a bastion of civilisation and freedom. A city rebuilt, a city growing. Fast approaching is a time of new frontiers as the boundaries of might and knowledge are pushed like never before. And in search of these things come travellers, adventurers, scholars and pilgrims, each seeking their share of the power.

Welcome to Durholme.

Durham University Treasure Trap is the world's oldest continuously-running Live Roleplay group. We meet twice a week to play roles in a fantasy mediaeval world, either in the congenial atmosphere of a mediaeval inn for our Tavern Nights each Monday, or in the woods around Durham for Adventures each weekend. We also have weekly weapons practices to develop combat skills which are useful in the game, run an annual banquet and a weekend-long end-of-year game, and send groups to larger live roleplay events around the country.

Summer DownTimes and Restatting

The Summer DownTime deadline (for existing players not freshers) is 29th September.

You have infinite travel time, therefore can travel anywhere on the material plane and back to Durholme, but still only get ONE major action.

The refs would also appreciate it if you could send your current character sheet, your character background and any flange/special effects you have.

Regarding restatting due to the new Spirit System - you are allowed to restat if you are directly effected by the changes; but you must stay as close to your old stats and character background as possible and rule 7 (don't take the piss) applies.

This should all be sent to ds.ttrefs@gmail.com and not to the main society account.
