New Player Packages

If this is your very first game at Underworld LARP we’d like to know that we have done everything in our power to provide you an incredible first experience, free of charge. Your deaths are not counted on your character card, we cover the cost of your game, and your weapons, armour and tags are “temp” which means you can’t lose them, even after death. We want your first event to be as fun as possible and not marred by mistakes made by inexperience.

Now all that being said we also need to run a business and pay our cost of living, rent, props, etc. In the past we would get a couple new players and they would stick around for half a decade. Today, gaming is much more casual. We see 10 to 15 new players a day, just curious what larping is all about. For some it’s not their thing, and for others, they love it and come back in a month. There is a cost to us to bring new players in and we swallow it because we love new players but it hurts us in the pocketbook. This offer is to help alleviate some of that pain and to also offer players a little extra to start to maximize fun even further.

New Player Package Cost: $45

If this is your first event, the cost of game is free. If you wish you may purchase this new player package, at the price of what you would pay if you were not a first-time player. The new player package gets you the following:

Occupation Group: Warrior

  • One Blanket of CP: 65 CP in most cases
  • X2 Cure Light Wound Elixir (Alchemical)
  • X2 Liquid Lights
  • Potion of Restore Limb
  • 10 Armour points of leather
  • 1 Gold 1 Silver
  • Instant Armour Refit (self use only, linked to your temp armour)
  • Letter of referral to local warrior themed guild or warrior NPC

Occupation Group: Rogue

  • One Blanket of CP: 65 CP in most cases
  • X2 Cure Light Wound Elixir (Alchemical)
  • X2 Liquid Lights
  • Potion of Restore Limb
  • 1 Gold 1 Silver
  • Ingested Antidote: All
  • X2 contact or Ingested Alchemy under 15 PP and temp skill to use them (only them)
  • Letter of referral to local thieves themed guild or rogue NPC

Occupation Group: Scholar

  • One Blanket of CP: 65 CP in most cases
  • X 3 Cure Light Wound Elixir (Alchemical)
  • Potion of Restore Limb
  • X2 Liquid Light Potions
  • 1 Gold 1 Silver
  • X2 3rd lvl or lower Scroll and temp skill to use them (only them)
  • Letter of referral to local mage’s themed guild or scholar NPC

Please note the letter of referral is a freebie that you can use if you need advice from other occupations similar to yours. As an example you’ve started game as a brand new assassin. You have a plan to rob a merchant but you’re just not sure how to go about doing it. This letter of referral can be taken to our Shaper camp and a Shaper will play a local contact in the thieves guild that can help you out by giving you some advise. If there isn’t an established guild in the area then a local “friend” will take that place. This is valid for your first event only.

As a new player you are under no obligation to buy this new player package. There just happens to be some people that want to play UW and have the funds to pay for event, so we’d like to reward them for it. If you’re interested in this New Player Package please take the following steps:

If you are prelogging your character with our logistics team:

  • Step 1: Inform the logistics team via prelog@larp.ca when you submit your character that you would also like to purchase the New Player Package. They will give you your extra character points to spend on your character immediately.
  • Step 2: Send payment to payment@larp.ca or make note with the logistics team that you’d like to pay in cash. They will collect the fee when you go through log at event.
  • Step 3: When you arrive on site and go through New Player Logistics you will be introduced to a New Player Liasion who will help you through the processes of getting started at UW. Inform that NPL that you have purchased the new player package and they will get you your tags and items that your specific package contains.

If you are not prelogging your character with our logistics team:

  • Step 1: Show up at event and inform the New Player Logistics team that you’d like to purchase the new player package. They will take the fee at that time. They’ll take care of updating your character at that time and you can spend a couple minutes with them spending your new CP
  • Step 2: When you arrive on site and go through logistics you will be introduced to a New Player Liasion who will help you through the processes of getting started at UW. Inform that NPL that you have purchased the new player package and they will get you your tags and items that your specific package contains.

That’s it. It’s much faster and easier if you Prelog you’re character regardless of if you purchase this package but we can accommodate either way. Hope you enjoy your first event!
