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.

  November 2020 Events Status Update
  Sun Nov 15, 2020 15:09

Hello Everyone,

I know this is pretty late coming, we overlooked making a formal announcement on this matter partly out of hope that things might turn for the better partly because life has hit a lot of us hard in different ways, however we have received news today that new statewide restrictions on public and indoor gatherings are going to be reinstated starting tomorrow, November 16 and lasting until at least December 15. I don't wanna go into the specifics of the restrictions here but this does mean we are still unable to hold events safely. The reason for our announcement today is, I'm sure to no ones surprise, that we are going to officially put Legacies into a "Closed Until Further Notice" status. We realized that we never actually said the words and wanted to make sure that everyone was on the same page concerning the status of events right now. I sincerely apologize if the delay for this official announcement has been inconvenient for any of our players. The Executive Officers working with Safety are constantly monitoring the status of restrictions throughout Washington and we will have to review the reopening of game once we get better news from the Governor's office and the Phase statuses for individual counties start to improve.

This has been a difficult year for everyone and would like to encourage everyone to reach out to Legacies friends digitally in whatever form interests you, online gaming, virtual tabletop sessions, in-character online role play, or video conference kikis. As a reminder we have a separate Legacies (and friends) gaming server to connect players with group online games they enjoy. Server invite link here: https://discord.gg/Qnx2Ea3 if you are not already in it. If you have any questions, please feel free to message one of our XOs for any concerns you might have about game or for additional clarifications you may need. All existing and previously stated rules for the large amount of time since our last event are still in effect and will be reviewed and adjusted, if need be, once we are able to hold our next event.

We hope everyone is staying safe and healthy and look forward to seeing you all again once we are safely able to do so.

-Legacies Executive Team

  July 2020 Logistics and Pre-registration Deadlines
  Sun Jun 28, 2020 0:30

Hello everyone long time no see!

The Operations team is being optimistic on the reopening of businesses around Washington that we may be able to hold a July event. Of course, we will have to make a considerable amount of adjustments to the way we play our game in response to the covid-19 pandemic. We are in the process of organizing all of the information we are gathering from the updated Washington State requirements as well as from the Middleground site management and you can look forward to a number of upcoming announcements in the next few weeks slowly outlining some of the changes we want to implement so we can all have a fun and safe event together again.

I'm here to announce today ahead of any other changes we will be making that to provide the logistics team with the maximum amount of time to prepare for event due to the increased production bonus and all the prep we will need to make with the adjusted way we will have to hold the logistics line we are moving the deadline for BOTH logistics submissions and the pre-registration deadline to midnight on JULY 10, 2020. This is a week ahead of what the normal logistics deadline would be. Of course, please submit your logistics updates and/or questions as soon as possible. There will be no early update raffle this month as we try to get everything up and running again.

Now, the reason the pre-registration deadline is being moved to the same date as the logistics deadline is because we are setting a maximum limit to the number of people on site to 50 in accordance with the current restrictions on large gatherings. This does include Plot members and full-time NPCs. With this limited amount of space we will not be using the website's pre-reg list (oh hey btw the website is working again *mostly*, but at a reduced capacity. it's still being worked on) To pre-register for this game you must go to the legacies square store and buy a FREE item listed as the "July 2020 Event Reservation". You can find the legacies online store at: http://www.legacieslarp.store/ Using this method for pre-registering will allow us to accurately track the 50 person limit. Please make sure to include your name and the name of anyone else you may be buying a reservation for so your reservation can be completed successfully. We strongly encourage you only purchase one of these reservations if you are absolutely certain you are going to attend event. Reservations have already been set aside for PLOT AND FULL NPCS so if you are either of those for July event you do not need to pre-register with this method. As a courtesy to other players, please email Logistics at any time if you submit a reservation and you later find out that you cannot attend event. There will be no consequence to doing this and it saves us some time by giving your spot to someone else quickly.

Should the 50 person limit be reached through the reservation purchase, another item will be added to the square store for adding your name to a Wait List. How this will work is that everyone who has a reservation has until 10pm Friday night of event to either arrive on site and check-in or message me, the Head of Logistics, the day of event to let me know you are going to be late. Luckily, the Middleground LARP site is equipped with working internet so I will be available to message online throughout the entire check-in process. If you have not arrived on site yet by 10 pm or have not messaged me ahead of time to let me know you are on your way, then your reservation will be given away to the next person on the Wait List. We understand that this is a huge pain but we do have to strictly enforce the 50 person maximum limit to the event. If you are on a Wait List and show up to event and no reservations are freed up for you, we will have to ask you to come back next time. ANY persons who arrive at event without a successful online reservation or without their name on the Wait List will be asked to leave site and come back next month.

We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience this causes but it is one of many changes we must implement to ensure that anyone who attends our events are staying as safe as possible during this crisis. I'm sure there are many questions you might have about other details about event but we ask for your patience. We have several planned announcements on the way but we did not want to bombard the announcement channels with too much info too soon. I will ask that if you have any questions about anything listed above you please post them into the #logistics channel on the Legacies Discord server and we will try to get to them as soon as possible. If your question involves a detail that is still under discussion or is part of an announcement that is coming we will tell you as much so you know an answer to that is on the way.

Thank you and we hope you are all safe and healthy!




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.

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).
