Ragnarok

Third-Year Goodbye 2012
15th - 17th of June at Ennerdale Scout Centre, Cumbria

NORSCA - VIGRITH - SUMMER, 1295

THE FATE of the gods rests in mortal hands.

SEERS, practicing their arton the knife edge between life and death, have pronounced it so.

THROUGHOUT the five ages of the nine worlds, the best and the strongest of Norsca's humans, dwarves, trolls and stranger beasts have been marked by one shared fate, one shared doom.

FOR in a nest at the heart of oblivion, among the branches of the world tree itself, a power more vast than any before seen is moving and the war it brings threatens the gods themselves. These marked heroes shall have one opportunity to stem the tide and prevent the breaking of the world.

From the AXE AGE will come those who prize might and physical power above all.

From the WOLF AGE will come those who are quick to anger and merciless in revenge.

From the WIND AGE will come those who value even-handed justice, and who are tireless in its pursuit.

From the RUNE AGE will come those who safeguard the knowledge of past ages, and who uphold the written law absolutely.

From the SWORD AGE will come those who live by a code of honour and seek to inspire their virtues in others.

THROUGH HONOUR and treachery, battle and song, prophecy and the sacrifice of blood, the chosen of the gods will be brought together one final time, amidst storm, amidst fire, and the howling of the wolves…

OOC Information

Ragnarok will be an interactive-style weekend event from the 15th to 17th of June 2011, at the Ennerdale Scout Centre in Cumbria. This event is in Durham Treasure Trap's "Third-Year Goodbye" style; this means it will use the TT rules system and setting, but won't involve the characters from the regular game. The structure of the event means there are a large number of player spots, with a smaller number of monster crew needed to help with the cooking and the violence. Player places will cost £35, and crew places just £5.

For this event, characters are pre-generated from player requests based on the event pitch above. Third-Years - players who are graduating finalists at Durham University this year, or who have otherwise been in the society for three years - will have the event written to focus around their preferences - non-third-year characters may have some things changed to fit! For this reason, it's helpful to add notes to your form to let us know if there is anything you absolutely do or do not want to play. If you want to ask about any particular aspects of the event, please poke the Head Ref (Mike Evans) or the ref team (Freya Copley-Mills, Jeanette Ng, Andre Tcherepine, Tom Hinds and Danny Scott) in person for a chat or via dutt3ygb@gmail.com.

The booking deadline for the event will be Friday the 27th of January 2011 - after that date we may still have crew places, but all character bookings must be in by then!

Character places will cost £35; Crew places will cost £5.

Would you like: Transport from Durham / Directions to the site
If you'd like us to arrange transport, it will be via minibus and will get you to the event on Friday and back again on Sunday, from outside the Durham Students' Union building. Transport will cost more on top of the main event price - cost of transport divided between everyone who needs it. For this reason, if you request transport and later change your mind we might have to charge you anyway - please bear this in mind!

Are you a third year? Yes: No:
Indicate YES if you are a third year, or if you are graduating and leaving Durham and have not yet counted as being a third year at one of these events, or if you've been in the society for more than three years and haven't had a third-year goodbye yet, or it's been three years or more since your last third-year goodbye. If you reckon you should count as a third year under any other circumstances, or if you for some reason don't want to count as a third year this year, let us know.

If we run out of beds, would you consider camping? Yes: No:
We have 38 beds; third-years and the crew (especially the cook!) get priority! Otherwise it's first-come first-served. Please indicate below if you have a medical reason for being unable to camp.

Any medical conditions, food allergies or food requirements we should be aware of? Yes: No:
If yes, please give details (food preferences MUST be declared separately to food allergies, the first-aiders need to know!):

Ex Miscellanea

If there’s anything you’d like that isn’t covered above, or if you’d definitely like or not like something specific, add it below. Any amount of detail is fine - anywhere from “I’d like to have this specific skill” or “I’d like to have a good excuse to get drunk and shout a lot” to a full background and a complete stat sheet (but we don’t promise not to change it enough to fit it to the event). If there's anyone you'd prefer to roleplay with, either as an ally or an opponent, this is also the place to mention it!


Make sure you've got all details filled in before clicking - there will not be an opportunity to edit!
