So You're a
And that's kinda scary, right? Hey, we've all been there! But this guide will help get you ready for your very first game with Alliance LARP Las Vegas
So where do we even begin? Since this is a roleplaying game it's good to have a concept in mind for the type of character you'd like to play. You can model something after an old D&D character, mash-up characters from a book or movie, or even start completely from scratch. It's entirely up to you!
Once you have an idea about what you'd like to play it's important to have a basic knowledge of the rulebook. Don't worry! You don't have to have everything memorized by your first game. But get an idea of the skills you'd like to use and how they work so you know how to play your character.
Once you have a character concept and know at least a little bit of the rules, you need somewhere to write all this down! Head over to our handy dandy character management app (also known as the CMA) and make an account. Under the characters tab you'll be able to add your very first character to the books!
Well, you have a character so now what do you? Get ready for a game of course! All scheduled events across the network can be seen on the events page of the CMA. Pick the event you plan on attending and click on "Start Pre-registration." Follow the prompts from there and you're one step closer!
Now that we can plan to have you at the game, we just need you to pay. We will accept payment through Paypal or Venmo. Our Paypal email is firstname.lastname@example.org and our Venmo is @ALLVegas
Once you're ready to come to game, you're going to need a costume! No beginner costume is perfect but there are some good ways to start. With a little creativity you can find some interesting looking pieces from the thrift store to make your character stand out.
When you have your costume you'll need to make sure you can defend yourself! Fighters and rogues might want to get themselves a weapon and casters will need spell packets. The rulebook has examples of how to make weapons and packets but there are also plenty of articles and videos online on how to make our own. You might also consider buying online or from a local craftsman!
The site we currently use is a tent camping site. You will need to get yourself a tent and sleeping bag. Our site does have warm running water so you'll be able to take a shower if you'd like to also bring towels and soap as well.
That's pretty much it! All you need to do now is make it to our game. Hope you have fun!
