The following event information is applicable for all our events in 2017. Please feel free to point people to this page if they are looking for information on details for times, dates and other recurring event details.
The gate crew at all PD events have a list of every player who is booked for the event on it. They will check your name off as you arrive. If you are not sure if you are booked for the event, then you can check your booking status by logging in to your PD account or by emailing the head office.
Please make sure that you have entered your car registration number on your PD account if you are travelling by car.
If you have claimed the concessionary ticket price, please make sure that you email a copy of your proof of eligibility to the head office or bring a copy with you to the event.
Players are allowed on site from 11am on the Thursday before the event starts. There is an additional charge of £5 to arrive one day early; this is paid on the gate.
The gate will close at 10pm and will open again at 10am on Friday morning. If you are arriving after this time, there will be a number on the gate that you can call and security will open the gate to allow you in.
Empire begins at 6pm on Friday and ends at 1 am that night. On Saturday time in begins at 10 am and ends at 1am. On the last day of an event time in begins at 10 am and ends at 3pm.
All players must be off site by the evening of the last day.
We will open GOD for event registration as early as possible on Friday. We will put up a sign outside GOD as soon as it is open. Once you have pitched your tent then come to GOD to collect your event pack. Your event pack will contain your character card, your character's money, phys-reps for resources and liao you have, ribbons for any special items and cards for mana crystals and herbs.
We will have a member of the GOD team taking photographs of characters in their costume. You can collect your pack without getting your photo taken in the first year, but please try and get your character's photograph taken when you get a spare moment. At future events you will not be able to collect your pack until we have a picture of your character.
Your picture should be of you wearing your costume and kit and any make-up or prosthetics that are appropriate.
Bring your weapons to the weapon check point at the tip of the Wintermark camp next to the Sentinel Gate to get them checked by a Profound Decisions weapons checker before use. The best time to get your weapon checked is Friday day before the event starts where possible. Look for the grey banner.
If you are taking part in the battles then your weapons will need checking before each battle. The first time you get your weapon checked we will put a coloured rubber band coded for the event on it. On Saturday any weapon that isn't banded will be checked before it can be taken on the battlefield. On Sunday we will check all weapons before they go on the battlefield.
Any weapon that fails a safety check will be tagged with a weapon-fail cable-tie and must be put stowed in an OOC area (or at GOD if you don't have access to any OOC area) until the end of the event.
For appropriate use only, our on-site mobile number is 07817 133793. This will be manned by Profound Decisions event team on the run up to the event, and held by our security team throughout the event. If you need to get hold of Profound Decisions to report an emergency then you can call this number.
Any enquiries that you have about your character, the game or the event can be dealt with at GOD. This is located in the OOC camping field, near the entrance to the IC area.
The First Aid tent is immediately in front of GOD. Qualified first aid staff are available at all times here or via GOD. Please report any medical problems to First Aid or to any member of staff with a radio.
Please note that with the exception of the Navarr camp, the adjoining woods are not part of the IC site. The woods will be in use throughout the event for battles and plot. You should not enter the woods unless you are instructed to do so by a referee.
