Welcome to Legacies
Legacies is a fantasy themed Live Action Role Playing game (LARP) based in the greater Seattle area of Western Washington. Weekend long games occur once a month at Washington State Park ELCs and attract players from throughout the Pacific Northwest, including British Columbia, Idaho, and Oregon as well as Washington. The complete list of upcoming event dates and location can be found on the Events Page.

As a Live Action Roleplaying game players at Legacies assume the identity of a character they create and act out the actions of their character within Fantasy/Medieval setting of Legacies. Combat is full contact using latex and foam prop weapons and other safe props. Players can chose to make their character from a variety of races, including Dwarves, Goblins, a variety of elf-like races (called Sidhe at Legacies), and other races considered a staple of fantasy settings, though they may also play a regular human character should the prospects of playing a fantastical race not appeal to them. Characters can be warriors, magic users, smiths, scholars, or any combination thereof. Legacies strives to allow the players to craft their ideal alternate persona. The Legacies Rulebook provides an introduction on how to play Legacies and how to make a player's first character.

Characters at Legacies live in the Medieval town of Fortnight, a small settlement on the frontier border with a vast lawless, untamed, and unpredictable land called the Goblin Wastes. In Fortnight a diverse group of characters from all corners of the game world try to make a living via whatever skills and profession they can, establish friendships and rivalries with their fellow residents, become embroiled in regional politics and events, and continually cope with the adversities both overt and subtle coming from the hostile Goblin Wastes to the north. The town of Fortnight is many things, but one thing it rarely happens to be is boring.

New Players with questions, or who want to introduce themselves to the friendly community of existing players, are encouraged to join the discussion on the Forum, or on any of Legacies' social media sites.

Executive Committee news
  June event Cancelled
  Wed May 27, 2020 11:30

(I'm also testing if the forum can support new posts)

Hello everyone, i come to you with another important announcement:

I'm sorry to say that June event will also be cancelled. Many counties (plus that other country north of us) will still be affected by travel and gathering restrictions, and though Middlegrounds is in Lewis County, we want to respect the guidelines for each county and not ask people to travel unnecessarily. The current plot's reign will again be extended one month - ending in September and allowing Lorilynn to take over in October.

We know this is a hard time for everyone, and we are all missing that face-to-face time with our friends and beating each other up with swords, but with contact sports like ours comes the extra need for caution. Hopefully all of you are enjoying the RP threads we have going on Discord, and I'm happy to see so many people having interesting interactions.
On to the good news on the topic of RP. We have had a number of people ask about ways they can take advantage of the RP/blanket opportunity when they have since rewritten characters they haven't had a chance to play. We are now dropping the rule that you have to have played that character IG previously to participate in RP provided your character concept and rewrite has been approved by World and Logistics. THIS IS A ONE TIME THING ONLY APPLYING TO THIS BLANKET OPPORTUNITY We have decided to relax this restriction due to the emergency nature of events being cancelled, preventing people from playing those characters, and therefore also preventing them from taking advantage of the RP/blanket opportunity. I reiterate this is a one time thing, and please make sure your characters are approved by World and Logistics first. This also only applies to people who have previously played the game.

If you have any questions, PM me as HoP, or any of the XOs, for clarifications on the cancellation or the RP new character requirements.




Website news
  Website Update
  Sun Apr 26, 2020 11:12

Hey everyone - a super delayed update here. The Legacies website went down in Jan when the host upgraded the server to an incompatible version of PHP (the forum software the site is built around is basically 20 years old, so its amazing it lasted as long as it did). I had started the fixes, but then got pulled away as I was handing it off to other players to take over. Anyway, I'm back on it at the moment, and am going to get it all into supportable state over the next couple of weeks. I'm terribly sorry for the interruptions and the length of time it took me to get back to it

  [Late] Document Release for the Disciplinary System
  Sun Jan 19, 2020 18:46

It has occurred to the XO’s that though it was announced publicly at game a few months ago, we overlooked making a general post announcing the new disciplinary system, despite it being in place since sometime around August or September.

So Here for you to review and familiarize yourself with is the document of the Rules of Conduct and Offenses Policies Update.

https://drive.google.com/open?id=1CaL9XtQgFMytM9IDcYCFC-HYE9V9XWKR

((please let me know if this link cannot be viewed))

It will soon be added to the Legacies Policies Page as well as the website gets work, along with whatever last-minute clerical and formatting edits are needed within the document.

Sorry for any confusions that have taken place between the in-person announcement and this online announcement.

(here is also the Incident Report Form for those who may need it)

close dialog Character Management

All requests to create a new character or make changes to existing characters is handled by emailing Logistics. When creating a new character or making significant changes to an existing character players should use the Character card maker. For more minor changes players may just describe the change that they wish to make, for example "I wish to spend 200 favor to buy Skill points, and use those skill points to buy 3 purchases of the Skill Reserve". The email should contain the player's name, and if it is an update to an existing character, the character name as it appears on the character card - Logistics may not be aware of which character a nick name goes to.

Players should also email Logistics with Character Production (Items the character is making with Skills such as Smith, Alchemist, or Spell Wright) for the upcoming month so that Logistics is able to make the Item Tags in advance. For example "I wish to use my 50 Smith production to make a standard crafted 1 handed weapon".

Production and Character Updates MUST be submitted no later than the Friday prior to the event in order to provide Logistics sufficient time to complete the request prior to event, unless Logistics has specifically announced a different policy for a specific event (for example, if events are only 2 weeks apart Logistics often allows submissions into the week of event).
