GM Class – Improving your game
February 4 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm
This is the introduction to the GM class which trains experience players to work as volunteers at events, take on more challenging NPC and monsters, design their own worlds, classes, and take on more responsibility in the game.
Involvement in this class requires active field work, volunteering at birthday parties, character leagues, in any and all leagues. Practicing as a helper for various GM’s and testing your skills as an Assisstant GM is part of the way players pay for this class, and keeps the cost reasonable ($150 flat rate). If you cannot volunteer at events, make other arrangements to craft, clean, or otherwise help out in the ways that you can.
This class also happens in conjunction with the LARP Training Camps to be held this summer in Palo Alto. Participants should plan to attend as helpers as many of these events as they can. The first day of each event is most critical and will include a planning and roles meeting from 5pm-6pm.
This class has two big field trips which involve researching historical locations and activities to bring more richness and realism to our gaming. The cost of this class includes involvement in the field trips which are all day events (tickets to our boat trip are not included in the cost of this trip and must be purchased separately). Both are planned to happen in the spring (dates will be released as they become available).
This class is NOT open to all players, and players who wish to enroll must demonstrate a facility with the rules, assignments, and good behavior during events to set a good example. The class has assignments each month and a final that is due in September.
