    Dear NERO LARP Membership
    Today, we announce that the license for the NERO Ravenholt campaign has been transferred to a new ownership group consisting of Alphonse Wright, Douglas Fitzgerald, Mike DeOssie, and Justin Cram.
    These four represent decades of NERO experience and are all players in the local Northeast games.
    We are excited to bring them on board and look forward to seeing them grow the NERO Mass Chapter, preserve its rich Ravenholt history and continue its Legacy for the next generation of LARPers to come.
    NERO Mass has always been our flagship chapter, operated in the past by Ford and Maureen Ivey, Rachel Morris and Annie Tyler, and its continued operation is important for our success, not just in the Northeast, but all over the world.
    Thanks to our own Annemarie Tyler, who operated NERO Mass for 8 years. Thanks to her, the NERO Ravenholt campaign continues to be the longest running continuous story line in the North America LARP community… possibly globally.
    Please join us in thanking Annie Tyler for her 8 years of service, and please join us in welcoming the new Ravenholt Chapter Owners – Alphonse, Justin, Douglas and Michael - and wishing them great success for years to come!!!
    Thank You
    Joseph Valenti

    15/06 :  NERO LARP Office Announces Appointment of Michellee Charland as Customer Survey Manager

       Joseph Valenti d/b/a NERO® Live Adventure Games, LLC

    June 14, 2013

    Contact: Joseph Valenti

    The NERO Office is proud to announce the appointment of Michelle Charland as Customer Survey Manager.

    • Michelle is fully empowered to develop a comprehensive NERO Member Polling System that compiles the preferences and opinions of the NERO Member base.
    • Michelle will manage chapter owner and member polling, with responsibilities to include survey content setup and reporting.
    Michelle will be responsible for several initiatives;
    1) The annual NERO LARP Member Survey. This has already been added to the new NERO LARP OnlineSystem at http://NEROlarponline.com and will go live October 01, 2013 and remain active for 4 months. The Customer Survey Team under the guidance of Michelle Charland still needs to review the proposed survey questions and approve of them or make alterations as deemed necessary.
    2) The quarterly NERO LARP Member Survey which asks a dozen questions to get a feel for how NERO members feel on certain topics. Most of these topics are started on FaceBook and other forums where discussion is had, but the survey and subsequent alert to take the survey - and the 1 blanket of experience you get for completing each survey each quarter - is meant to get every NERO member involved. This is much like the existing survey that is on the http://NEROdb.com site now.
    3) The annual NERO LARP Chapter Owner Survey which goes live November 01 of each year, and remains open until January 31 the following year. We generally ask about 15 questions of the owners to rate from 1-15 in order of priority. This will be open to NERO Chapter Owners only.

    Please join us in welcoming Michelle Charland to the NERO LARP National team as Customer Survey Manager.

    Sincerely,

    03/06 :  NERO LARP Office Announces a Goblin Point Policy Update

       FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE !

    Re: Goblin Point Policy Update on June 03, 2013.

    OFFICIAL ANNOUNCEMENT TO ALL NERO MEMBERS:

    We have seen a few changes over the last few months, all of which are meant to support the progress of; 1) NERO as an organization; 2) Characters in the game; and 3) marketing efforts.

    We’ve had many successes in the last 6 months. We’re thankful to all of our members for showing their support towards improving the game and the organization as a whole, and we are embracing the suggestions made.

    Truly, since the publication of our conceptual document to the http://nerolarp.com forums late in 2012, we’ve received a lot of advice, opinions and preferences from everyone, and we’ve been going through the topics and points with a focus on improvement.

    One topic was to ‘link’ goblin point blanket maximums to event attendance:

    We previously reduced the number of goblin blankets to 2 per month with the intention of lowering the character progression rate of individuals who attend few or no NERO events, so that the members who attend more events produced by NERO Chapters would earn more Experience for their character than those who attend fewer events.

    Those who only attended a few events would get a good amount of goblin blankets too (i.e. base 24), but not as many as the people who go to events would be eligible for.

    EFFECTIVE IMMEDIATELY:

    The Goblin Point Policy will change back to 1 goblin blanket per week for a maximum of 52 goblin blankets per year, from the current maximum of 24 blankets.

    We’ll be making an update that will allow the characters to buy the goblin blankets for the months since it became 2 per month on October 01, 2012. The cost will still be 50 goblin points per goblin blanket.

    The entirety of the current goblin point policy is still in effect, and we’ll be making edits to the policy document to reflect the 52 week changes as soon as possible.

    Please accept my apologies for not changing this back sooner; I’ve been busy working on many things that will better NERO overall, much of which is based on the ideas, opinions and preferences of NERO Members.

    Sincerely,

    Joseph Valenti

    The NERO Office is proud to announce the appointment of Darrin Myers as Director of the Tyrran Campaign Plot Department, effective immediately.

    Darrin will direct a team of between 20 and 30 people, including Managers, who are part of the Tyrran Setting Team, World Plot Team, Regional Plot Teams, Race Team, and Politics and Nobility Team.

    A NERO veteran of over 16 years, Darrin has been staffing both NERO LARP games independent LARP systems for over 10 years.

    Darrin has a vision for insuring that everyone who attends a NERO LARP Event is involved in the fun, and able to impact our shared game worlds.

    Recently, Darrin served as Event Director for 2013's successful NERO National Event hosted by his home chapter, NERO Atlanta.

    Darrin is looking forward to traveling extensively to many local NERO Chapters in the next two years, and getting to know the Local Plot teams who make the NERO LARP shared vision come alive at a higher level of quality than ever.

    Please join us in welcoming Darrin Myers to NERO National staff as the Director of the Tyrran Campaign Plot Department.

    Joseph Valenti

    The Tyrran Campaign Plot Department is in charge of developing the plot lines that affect the National setting. The main way this department portrays the setting is by creating content for seasonal or annual “World Events.” A world event is something significant and far-reaching that affects the entire campaign.

    The methods they use to communicate the story are primarily modules run by national staff members, local impact modules, and plot submissions, but also in-game news posts and setting description documents such as “A Traveler’s Guide to Evendarr.”

    Generally, the plot teams create content to support the world event which can be used as wrote or further developed by any chapter. This department also generates source material pertaining to Tyrran history as well as the current standing of the various national factions and locations. - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

    David Bliss has stepped up in several ways;

    1. As a Project Manager for the NERO Office, David will lead the effort to review all of the information received from Fran Moore and get it all scanned into the computer and onto the NERO LARP Tyrrapedia site.

    2. David has been helping Derek Saluga of NERO Piedmont in the operation of that chapter since Derek got a promotion at work (congrats!)! He is also coordinating the August 2013 National 9-day event at NERO Piedmont.

    3. David has also chosen to work with a few other NERO Owners/Members to get the NERO METRO DC, NERO VALOR games back up and running. The chapters have had a few challenges, mostly due to health issues and one of our owners being deployed.

    Please join us in welcoming David Bliss to the NERO LARP National team as a Project Manager.

    08/08 :  New NERO LARP Website Up! READ ME FIRST!

       Hello everyone!
    As you can see, the new website is now up! You might be asking "but, I don't see any posts on the forums." The long and the short of it is that the integration of the forums did not go as planned, so I had to manually migrate everything over. The posts are still safe, and I will probably migrate them over tonight.
    I have, however, managed to move everyone's username over to the new system. You will ALL have to click the "forgot password" button, though, as the old passwords were irretrievable from the old database.
    Your usernames should match perfectly, except for a few exceptions:
    • If you had any spaces in your name, remove them, and it should work
       
    • If you had any parentheses in your name, remove them. Example = "Tim(brock) is now Timbrock"
       
    • Dashes and underscores should still be fine.
       
    • Daniel R. Simmons is now DanielRSimmons (sorry to single you out, but you were a unique case)
       
    • If you are unable to get your username correct, please do not hesitate to email me at nerowebadmin©nerolarp.com
    Have fun with the new site! Keep in mind that it is very much still a work in progress, with more features to come in the future. I would like to thank Adam Taylor for his hard work in designing the layout(he's better at the pretty stuff than I am). I'd also like to thank Dan Comstock for helping moderate the interim forums, and all of the other staff for helping us test and work on this site in ways that I might not quite be able to remember in detail.
