Miriam Fellswater – Crimes and Punishments

By decree of Judge Marshall, The Human known as Miriam Fellswater will no longer be protected by the laws of Berphaunt, in Jericho. Miriam Fellswater Is still required to abide by the laws of Berphaunt, however. By order of Judge Marshall, the details of this decision are listed below.

Miriam, in 2258 was arrested for Murder of his camp mate and perjury, for trying to cover up the crime, including uttering threats to other camp mates in order to secure their compliance. Miriam was one of two people charged and executed for these crimes.

Later in 2258, Miriam was arrested and tried for the murder of a wild animal fight organizer. Miriam used his toxic blood to render two people incapacitated and then killed them both. Fortunately, the young woman remembered her death and was able to provide testimony that implicated Miriam. After questioning, Miriam admitted to the crime. Both Former Council Elara and Former Council Greensbane heard the evidence and agreed that Miriam was guilty of the crimes. No sentence was issued, at that time, as more pressing matters were unfolding.

In 2258, Miriam made a pact with a Demon to provide him with an infernal power. This is what the red veins in his arm represent. Based on our understanding, the pact is limited to Miriam and Miriam alone. However, Miriam has attempted to convince others to make pacts with the same Demonic entity, in order to further increase his own power. This attempt to convince others results in a charge of public endangerment.

As of 2259, Judge Marshall has decided that, as a result of the above items, Miriam is no longer to be protected by the laws of Berphaunt, in Jericho. However, as every other sentient being, Miriam is still required to abide by the laws of Berphaunt.

This is effective as of March 23, 2259, until further notice.

Magistrate Greggor Cassian, Archmagus of the Jericho Mage’s Guild and Apprentice to Archmagus Aislin Ciara of the Skein Dominion.

Underworld LARP Jericho Presents: Dancing the Hangman’s Jig

“March 18, 2259

Judge Marshal,

As you are aware, the Empire wishes to consolidate its holdings in your region. As such, the first Barony of Jericho has been established. Your new nobility is a highly decorated naval officer of the 21st Berphaunt Fleet and a loyal man to the Emperor and the Empire. Admiral Zeddicus Lockwood, Baron of Jericho, will be departing from Berphauntian seas to his new home, aboard his personal vessel “Demons Durance” in the coming weeks. He has requested he be referred to simply as “Admiral” and you will abide by that. Once his ship draws close to shore the Conclave are confident they have the means to levitate his vessel to avoid significant travel times, avoid danger spots and to grant him a safe residence within the town of Jericho until permanent structures can be constructed. Please ensure proper arrangements are made to welcome him appropriately to his new position as head of your council and baron to the lands.

Share this missive with the populous as you see fit.

Sincerely,
Lord Terence Aldam
Empire of Berphaunt”

Underworld LARP Jericho Presents: Jewel of Denial

Know, O thou kind Jericho hosts, that in days of yore and in ages long ago, on a night much like this, a great change stirred.

In our tale, the wealthy and influential did plot and scheme. Four armies of Cindus’Thalan converged on each other on what is now The Eternal City, all reaching for power. Before them all stood a great Stranger standing alone in a tent, inviting the leaders inside. The tent was filled with delicious food, drink and song. Suddenly, the Stranger extended his will, vowing no further blood would be shed on this land for a ten years. With no war to fight, the leaders decided to remain, ready to fight at a moment’s notice. Over time, the differences between the nations softened by the hospitality under the tent, and the war never continued again.

My name is Ardeth bey, I am the leader of my tribe and today, we come to offer our renowned hospitality while your guilds, guards, and leaders make council. We of the Nuwebai Tribe have travelled untolded distances through your Skein gates to find goods, stories, adventure and allies. As a gift from a special Stranger among us, (similar to tales of old), we stay our swords and magics. Instead we welcome song and stories, drinks and dancing, games and gambling. We have heard tell that this is a time of rebuilding and rekindling of friendships within Jericho and we come to raise up a great Pavilion to both entertain and entice you. To you we offer drinking, dancing, gambling and trade. Like us, the citizens of Jericho do not live safe lives, and must be constantly aware of potential threats. So, for one night, we offer as a gift of friendship a place where swords will not be needed, but wit and intellect will be as sharp as any blade.

So please, come and share in the hospitality of the Fire Elves of the Newebai Tribe and listen to our tales while you spin your own.

– Ardeth bey, borne of the Sun

Underworld LARP Jericho Presents: Set in Stone – An Epilogue

The nights are long and what is left of the day remains frigid and desolate. The wild beasts that roam Maud’madir return to their caves to slumber as winter reaches its darkest depths. In those depths awaken memories from a time long before Jericho called the land above, “home”.

It is now that the Berphauntian Mining Guild chooses to stake their claim on all that lays beneath. They plunge deep into the frozen ground to see what riches they may glean. A new series of caves has been found, inside Jericho’s borders. Evidence suggests rich ore deposits and abundant veins of gems. For their first major descent into this new system the guild will be outsourcing their security and labour needs to local adventurers. That means you.

Perhaps there’s nothing dangerous down there, living underneath Jericho’s new home. Perhaps it’s safe.

And perhaps tomorrow you’ll wake up in a house made of gold.

2017 Shaper Applications Open

From this post:

We are now opening up applications in Underworld Jericho for the entire 2017 season for :

x1 Lead Shaper
x4 Shapers

These two positions have the highest of priorities in our guild, as plot and immersion is the product we sell as a LARP. There are times when the Shapers may be having more fun than PCs at events, but that comes only after much hard work. This is not an application to be taken lightly, yet it can the most rewarding thing to do at any LARP.
