  • 3.1 Rules & OS Guide Publication Updates


    The Office Elves have been busy over the winter, working to update our Player’s Handbook and Guide to Occupational Skills to include all the published rules updates to date, incorporating the changes to various skills since original publication, as well as new skills that have arisen over the last few years. We have also formally incorporated the new IC Blessing for all children that was introduced last year into the rules.
    After looking at the rules around the purchase of Occupational Skills, we have decided to revise the rules concerning when you can buy skills during the game year, and how these purchases can be sequenced.
    Over the last couple of years we have been doing some play-tests of various items that characters can make within the game – following on from this, we have also decided to improve the effectiveness of the Artefact damage call by adjusting how various Occupational Skills interact with it.
    The Players Handbook and Game Rules 3.1 can be found here: https://goo.gl/pymVho
    The Guide to Occupational Skills 3.1 can be found here: https://goo.gl/bwLk9f
    Both of these publications will go into effect from 01/05/2018
    Weapons Check Guidelines comes into immediate effect and can be found here: https://goo.gl/kfvdMB

    Charities 2017

    All at the LT wish to heartily thank everyone who helped raise the amazing sum of £7,328.20 for our 2017 charities. We have rounded this amount up to £8,000. The charities we chose for 2017 help to provide care and support for some of the most vulnerable and deserving within the Derbyshire area.

    The nominated charities for 2018 will be announced during the summer.

    Caterers Update

    The past few years has seen a number of our selected caterers fail to attend our events. This is due to the economic climate and business closures, which has diminished the availability of both range and variety of foods available for our customers, such as specialist coffee and hog roast. Regrettably, on Wednesday we were advised that our regular baked potato vendor had ceased trading, despite a contractual agreement to attend being in place. As a temporary measure, one of our other regular caterers has sought to provide a selection of baked potatoes and fillings in addition to their existing range.
    Our current and continuing event caterers have both longstanding and reliable relationships with both the LT and you, our customers. We believe that compared to other festival events the caterers are reasonably priced.

    We do not own or operate any of the front-of-house caterers. These, like the bar, are privately owned companies who have an arrangement to cater to our customers at our events. We endeavour to offer reasonable pitch fees in order to prevent any over inflation of food prices. The LT, alongside the local authority Environmental Health officers check that each caterer holds the relevant food safety certification and insurances as a food vendor. This includes LT’s own staff canteen. All caterers are out of character, in order to comply with the Food Safety regulations.

    If you do have any concerns or issues with any of the food from any caterers, please speak with the caterer in the first instance.

    We would like to ask you, our customers, do you know of any additional caterers, who are geared up to provide mobile event catering on the scale required,  who would be interested in catering at our events to supplement our existing caterers and offer a more diverse selection of food.

    We would welcome any suggestions for these caterers that you may have. Please send these to enquiries@www.lorientrust.com with the subject “Caterers”

    The Spring Moot Camp Layout 2017

    The camping map for the Spring Moot 2017 is above.

    Our event venue, Locko Park Estate, Has spent a substantial sum on improving the infrastructure around the dam and speed hump area near the lake. While these groundworks and surrounding area settle, a strict one way system will be in place. We remind all drivers that care must be taken while traveling on the estate and a speed limit of no more than 5MPH applies. All event traffic must enter the estate from the A6096. (Only Traders, LT Staff and Caravans may arrive from Locko Road Entrance)

    Please be considerate to pedestrian and wildlife traffic. Each member of faction security and each command team have been issued with a copy of Customer Arrivals to Lorien Trust Events for 2017. A copy will be posted to each individual faction group on Facebook.

    Don’t forget the camping maps are done on a fair and balanced rotational based on previous assigned camping plots.
