Weekend Non Player Character
Role and Responsibilites
Overview of the Role
The ADL Owners and Staff firmly believe that the Non Player Character (NPC) volunteer members are without a doubt the backbone of the community. They provide the numbers that populate the game world and help turn fantasy encounters and conflicts into reality for our community. They remain the unsung heroes of the game. In short: We need you! If you are interested in joining us for a weekend of fun and excitement, please send us an email at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Pre and Post Event Assistance
The Weekend NPC is expected to be among the first boots on the ground at site on game days. Their assistance with setting up everything that is required to host the LARP event prior to the event beginning, as well as breaking it all down once the event is over, is essential to a successfully run ADL event. It is just too large an endeavor to organize and execute with just a few staff members. The Weekend NPC will be responsible for helping setting ADL up for success before our events begin.
Portraying NPCs During Events
The Weekend NPC becomes any one of millions of different inhabitants for our game world. They are responsible for breathing life into all of the other aspects of our fantasy shard world that are NOT the player characters (PCs). They provide our community with the antagonists that stand in the way of our PCs. They are quite often used by the ADL Campaign and Personal Plot Team as the device to introduce new story elements, world mysteries, and moral dilemmas that the PCs struggle against! It is the responsibility of the Weekend NPC to take full advantage of our well stocked NPC Camp to dress the part and as fully as possible become those inhabitants of the game world that the PCs need to interact with each and every event.
The Owners of ADL, as well as the community that the Weekend NPC serves, will endeavor to continuously award their NPC staff with abundant gratitude for their volunteered time and service. Without these vast and varied roles, we would find the integration into our Alliance world much more difficult. We remain so grateful for all of your efforts in breathing life into the whole shard for us to enjoy each and every month. We truly cannot thank you enough!
The Weekend NPC will be awarded 500 Goblin Points per month for attendance at an ADL event where they provide NPC support the ADL community. The sizable award will be for service during the event as being among the first boots on the ground, setting up and running modules and town combats during the weekend, and then packing up and securing all of NPC Camp before departing site.
The Weekend NPC may be awarded Dragon Stamps based on performance reviews of the event by the Owners of ADL.
The Weekend NPC will receive one future event attendance credit for each ADL event staffed as an NPC, and additionally will enjoy free meals at all ADL sponsored events that they volunteer.
The Weekend NPC will be awarded one NPC Blanket for any one character per month they volunteer for their continued willingness to help with their time and effort. It is worth noting a couple of provisions regarding this NPC Blanket award. A player can receive multiple NPC Blankets each month from different chapters but no more than one NPC Blanket can be applied to the same character each month. NPC Blankets may not be rolled over into subsequent months but may be used up to three months retroactively. Players may receive NPC Blankets in any chapter and apply the blanket to any of their characters. You must NPC the entire event, meaning you cannot play your PC at all. NPC Blankets cannot be purchased through any means, they are only rewards for players who NPC. This NPC Blanket is received in addition to any other blankets from events, goblin stamps, dragon stamps, or alternative XP.
The ADL Owners host an annual end of the season party to say thank you to its staff for everything that they do all year long to make all the magic happen! As an ADL NPC Guild Member, you would become part of that staff of folks that the owners would want to acknowledge and give back to with a celebration.
