Below is the system we will require all Players to follow when sending in an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. This requirement will be in place following the January 12th, 2018 event. A copy of this information and template will be saved as a document on the Facebook group as well as be available on the website.
- You may email plot one time per active character to cover any between-event actions for that character. This email may contain multiple actions.
- All submitted emails must follow the template / examples below for each action
- Each character can have up to 1 between event actions per week which passes between events.
- Plot will respond once per email received. Rolling dialogues or actions should be addressed at events.
- Multiple Plot members can be referenced in the email.
- Please be specific with your request, your information and the response you're looking for from Plot.
- Emails received at least 12 days before the event will be guaranteed a response before the event.
- Emails received between 12 and 5 days before the event MIGHT be responded to, but will at least be considered for any IG actions at the event.
- Emails received after 5 days before the event will not be responded to and will most likely not result in any IG consideration at the event.
- Players may request between game RP with Plot members, but Plot members may decline at their discretion.

To encourage and help new players join our great game and community, Fantasy Alive is now offering some new player starting packages! These packages are for players creating their very first PC and details on it can be found here.
What makes Fantasy Alive different from other LARP games?
This is difficult question to answer, there are many LARP games and systems, and all share at least some similarities.
The answer we hear most from new players, is "the people." We are very proud of our long time players, and how they have helped us
make Fantasy Alive an inviting place for new players to feel welcome and participate.
Some of the most notable differences we have tried hard to implement are listed below:
Character development: Fantasy Alive is a classless system. Players can direct their character*s growth in any direction. Not to mention,
the countless opportunities for political and social growth.
Realism: While high-level characters do gain amazing talents, they never become invulnerable. In the right circumstances, a clever new
player can still find ways to best their powerful rivals.
Working economics: Gold and treasure are always needed, and not just a system for accumulation, or experience rewards. Almost
every aspect of the characters lives will require or earn coins in our fluctuating economy.
Balanced Mechanics: Long time players do not end up with powers that create imbalances in game play. There is no need for
complete restarts every couple of seasons; as high-leveled PC*s become unstoppable.
Low "out of game" Politics: While in-game political battle is encouraged, it is not tolerated out of game. There is no "boy*s club" of plot
members who favor certain PC*s or situations. New recruits have the same opportunities as old friends of the game presenters.
Flexibility: Our most important concern is the satisfaction of our members, when flaws in the rules are found they are fixed. When a
problem arises, we will bend backwards to fix it.
