Dear Fanwar Families in Teriock,
Due to social distancing and the shelter in place order in California, Fanwar is attempting to do our LARP as an online RPG.
UPDATED as of 04/09/2020
Our new schedule is as follows:
Mondays 4-7pm, Tuesdays 4-7pm, Fridays 7-10pm
Occasionally Bonus events Saturdays 7-10pm
Due to scheduling difficulties of GM’s we are changing some of our online Fanwar times. Currently we will be adding Friday and Saturday evenings as some of our GMs have classes or work on Mondays and Tuesdays at that time. However, these weekend sessions will be at a later time that may be more conducive to our older players but not necessarily for our younger ones. So at this time our schedule through May (or until social distancing is lifted) is as shown above.
Note: Each month there is a session cap of 5 “level points.” (otherwise referred to as “sessions” but I am using a new term to clarify.) Your first session of the month is worth 2 level points. Each session after is worth only 1 level point. After 5 level points (or 4 sessions) you may elect to play more sessions but you will not gain any level points. However, if you die and pull 2 black stones for death you MAY earn that session’s level point.
Here is the Google Doc to link us to the campaigns:
We will be using the skills of our Junior GMs who will be stepping up to GM groups of up to 5 players online. We will be using our tabletop system combined with Discord for video and Roll 20 as the gaming platform. Stay Safe and bare with us! Fanwar is designed as a LARP but we will do our best to adapt it into a fun RPG.
All of the Teriock GM’s assisting online are donating their time for the sake of keeping our beloved game alive. If you choose to play today and you can afford to pay during this recession, please make your payment ($5-20 sliding scale) to Christopher Melville’s Paypal account: http://www.fanwar.com/paypal-payment-page/
Sara and I have money to weather this storm for now due to our jobs as teachers and the secured funding stream. Christopher does not. If we want to keep FANWAR alive we need to keep him afloat. Chris has done countless numbers of fundraisers over the years for numerous causes. He is always handing out scholarships and is constantly giving to those in need. Now it’s our turn.
If you can not give monetarily at this time we understand as we are all going through a hard time. Please do not be discouraged from playing because of financial hardships and join us in keeping the game world alive online through your participation. There will come a time in the future when you will find a way to give back. Today we play.
See you online!
