Regarding the recent discussions about the Racial Make-up requirements for Endrani, the Executive Officers have decided to move forward in making an official decision. We understand this is a sensitive topic, so allow me to express that we put a lot of thought and research into this, and it was not a split-second decision. After many discussions with players from different backgrounds and with opposing viewpoints, the results of the poll taken during April, and taking the future of the game into consideration, we have opted to remove the current black make-up requirement.

Like previous changes to races (e.g. Gypsy to Trandifir, Dverg Braids to Chevrons) there will be no IG explanation for this. This is also something we put a lot of consideration into and decided the transition would be best if it was done quickly without possibility of OOG opinions being linked to IG historical events. We ask that characters in play respect this and remind people to stay IG and mind the changes, just as we do with referring to the Trandifir properly.

In its place the new Endrani Racial make-up will be Purple with “House” markings (A list is provided in the OneDrive File below). Not only will this help further the Endrani from being associated with Drow copies, but it is also our hope to provide people with the ability to get creative and have fun with the new make-up. This will fill a theme we have among the races: for the ‘humanoids’ the Barbarians have Tribal markings, and for the ‘goblinoids’ the Orcs have War paint. Now the Endrani will be the member of the ‘sidhe’ races with markings.

Onto the House Marking ‘requirements’: Each Endrani House has a designated symbol that will be shown on their faces (see the attachment), and that symbol will be worn in Black. They are free to include any other designs they wish in whatever color they choose, and can even incorporate symbols from other houses, so long as those are not black.
NONE of these symbols are required should you be transmuted into an Endrani or were raised outside of Doomstadt. From there you have creative freedom to draw what you want on your face (within reason), but please put in an effort to not be mistaken for a House Endrani or Another Race. (You may not go plain purple)
These markings are typically found around the eyes, temples, and foreheads – unlike the other marked races – however this is also not a requirement, but a common theme to get started with. If you have any questions about markings you could use, or if yours are appropriate, send a message to World at gameworld@legacieslarp.org.

This change will OFFICIALLY take affect with the next Rules Hotfix (so the new makeup requirement will be in the rulebook) expected in July. However, you are free to start using the new Purple makeup starting this event. Loaner make-up will be available at Logistics and Plot Camp for those without a supply of purple. Our suggested brand is Mehron as we’ve found it is the most allergy friendly so far, and you can find them pretty easily on Amazon. There is also no shade requirement, so whatever Purple you find that works best for you will be accepted. If you need any help finding Purple make-up before the Rules Hotfix deadline, please let us know and we’ll be happy to help.

I am unable to access the one drive file. Possibly this is due to it being a microsoft-only file format (which has been a problem in the past).

If you can post a simple PDF, I would appreciate that.

There isn't really a way to post files on this forum (that I'm aware of). With that in mind, I will at least upload the PDF to the Discord Announcement and see if I can do the same on Facebook.

Thanks Daniel,

Perhaps this will be accessible for Folks if the other methods don't work out. Might as well cover all bases, these are some cool symbols that an Endrani enthusiast may want to memorize.

Based on the presence of "not telling" markings, I was wondering - are they permanent, like tattoos? Or is it IG makeup/paint as well?

It's like Barbarian or Orc warpaint/tribal markings. If the character decides their tribe has changed they can change the paint, but another character in game cannot change it.

Magic paint.
