We have our 2022 dates! They are:
Hello everyone! As we draw closer to our live event, we wanted to reiterate our policy regarding attendance. As previously stated we are requiring that all players and cast show proof that you are vaccinated against Covid-19. With the danger of Covid-19 still very much an issue, the rise of the Delta Variants and even other Variants, it is our imperative to ensure that our community is as protected against these things as much as possible. This means providing proof that you are vaccinated. We are asking you to send a picture of your vaccination card to Roaproof@gmail.com with the subject line: “[Insert your name] – Vaccination card” or proof that your medical doctor has advised that you should not get the vaccine. Of course we can always inspect your proof of vaccination at checkin of the live event you are attending.
Sadly, if you do not send us a picture copy of your Vaccine Card to Roaproof@gmail.com or show us the card itself -or a picture of the vaccination card- in person then you will be unable to attend our live events. We will unfortunately have to send anyone home who is unable to provide us with this information at the door in the interest of safety.
We recognize that there are some who may have already shown us their proof of vaccination; however we are still going to ask that you email it to us. We want to get a head start on this which is why we are announcing this now. This is for the safety of not only yourself, the game itself, but the friends and family of this lovely community. We appreciate your compliance in this request and cannot wait to see you all in September and beyond!
A Winner is Announced
As the dust of the celebration and festivities of the weekend settles, you can almost hear a trumpeting upon the wind as the sun passes its apex in the sky.
A Winner is Announced
As the dust of the celebration and festivities of the weekend settles, you can almost hear a trumpeting upon the wind as the sun passes its apex in the sky.
A winner has been made clear:
The Celestials are Victorious this Realms Night.
Those who stood and represented their teams in the games Those who stood and represented their team in the games (participating directly in points-gaining mods for the Celestial Team) shall gain the following for the next 3 (live) events. Roleplay as feeling empowered and protected until after the third live event:
Realms of Adventure Digital Events Combat System
In the interest of allowing for more diverse and interactive combat, we’ve updated our combat system for this digital event! The new system consists of a collaborative narration between you and the cast member running the mod alongside digital dice rolling to ensure a level of risk and excitement. It will also reward creative thinking in the form of making overcoming challenges easier and allowing for greater use of the abilities on your character sheet.
There are three states a player may be in:
Combat consists of up to 3 rounds, and may NOT extend further under any circumstances.
When your group is approached with a situation in-game that might require combat, and you inform the cast member running the mod that you’re intending on fighting, the cast member will inform you what the general assumed difficulty of the fight will be, especially whether or not it is winnable or a guaranteed loss. A Target Number must be rolled on a d100 during fighting rounds, and that number will generally be kept a secret. However in some cases it may be shared openly. It is safe to assume that the more difficult the encounter, the higher the Target number and vice versa. Most encounters will include a flat number to overcome, but this number can be modified in favor of the players by the application of creative use of skills and tactics. Combats are won by achieving a hidden number of Successful Rolls.
ANY player may take any of the following Four Actions available to them in combat encounters. Fight, Support, Tend Injuries, or Flee.
Actions will always be resolved in order of Tend Injuries –> Support –> Flee –> Fight, but all are considered to be happening “at the same time” in regards to the world.
Round 1: Players who are either Injured or Healthy describe their next actions, either to Fight, Tend Injuries, Support, or Flee.
All players using the Fight action roll against the target number. Any players that Fight and did not reach their target numbers become Injured, and those that met the target number remain Healthy. Anyone using the Support or Tend Injuries action remains in the same state as long as at least one player is Fighting. Otherwise, they become Injured if Healthy or Incapacitated if Injured. The total amount of successes will be noted by the individual running the combat. If that target number is met in the first round, the combat ends in victory for the players.
Round 2: This runs similar to round 1, where players who are Injured or Healthy declare their actions and describe in particular what their characters are doing. The actions resolve as noted above, and if at any point the total number of successes is reached by the group in Fighting, the encounter is resolved. As long as there are individuals in the Healthy or Injured state at the end of this combat, it continues to round 3.
Round 3: This is the final round of combat, and runs as all of the others with a few exceptions:
If Flee has been chosen either by itself or as part of Support or Tend Injuries, and Flee is allowed in the encounter (Players will be informed if it is not), that individual survives. What that means will be determined by the module and individual running the encounter.
If the needed number of Successes are NOT rolled by those who have chosen to Fight, all left within the combat will be considered to be Incapacitated (bleeding out) regardless of state at the start of the round. At this point a player must inform the individual running the encounter whether or not they have any special abilities such as Hard to Kill that might let them survive such a state. Abilities that allow an individual to survive this state are not only limited to Hard to Kill, but ARE limited to only being used once over the course of the weekend. (One effect that allows one to survive this state per character for the entire weekend, regardless of source or amount available to the character.) Individuals that die during the course of these encounters will visit Negoro as normal. Any survivors will be told what their fates and options are on a case-by-case basis by the individual running the encounter.
Things to remember:
The Mod Survey is posted at the bottom of this post!
You can find the link to the Mod Descriptions here:
Below you will find the mod descriptions you can choose from. Being that it is realms night, we will be allowing you to choose 2 mods from the list below that you are most interested in, AND then there will be a third mod that will count toward the results of Realms Night: Will the infernals have the upper hand for the next 4 years or will the Celestials take the win? Help your chosen side! You will be placed on a Realms Night competition mod by staff based on what team you choose to compete for in your survey. Everyone will get their 2 chosen mods and 1 competition mod. As a friendly reminder if you plan to play your alt character for any of these mods then you must have paid for the Alt Fee found on the registration pages of the website. Here are the mods:
Into the woods
The Druid Aryanna is looking for assistance in reclaiming an object of importance to the wood elves and other druids that were stolen. The mission is expected to involve tracking and fighting, but the plan is to whittle down the enemy as much as possible with “creative problem solving.”
Temple of Doom
A cleric of Drevaria is looking for help. The ruins of an old Drevarrain Temple/Tomb was just excavated nearby. He is looking for able-bodied adventurers to explore, map, and find out who is entombed in this place. Sounds like a simple enough task…how dangerous could this really be…
Due to the preparation of the upcoming moving of many individuals of New Calendale, there have been some lapses in guard patrols and the dealing of legal matters. The nobles are looking to deputize a group of literate citizens in good standing as temporary Legal Judges. There will be a thorough check into anyone willing to be of service. These individuals will be tasked with presiding over cases, determining the guilt or innocence of those involved, and determining the penalty.
Security Think Tank
Sarano Thillyk has a business providing security services to private residences and businesses. Sarano is looking to hire individuals with knowledge of thievery and the art of crime to give him insight into how to protect his patrons and to best arrange his security systems and utilize his resources. This is a consulting job to help Sarano theory craft defences to help protect his customers.
House of the Lost
A disheveled, but well-dressed woman has come to you for aid. Her brother was dared to go into the abandoned mansion by the edge of the woods, and has yet to come back. She fears that he has gotten himself lost inside or injured. Are you brave enough to go inside and find him?
Devil’s in the Details
In the spirit of Realms Night, a devil drops you a hint that some Goblinoids have kidnapped innocent folk and are preparing to sacrifice them… to it. The Devil suggests you go and stop that. Expect to spill a lot of greenskin blood, and hope they don’t spill yours.
A failed ritual has torn a portal into the elemental realm of Air dragging innocent people into it. You are tasked with venturing into the realm to recover the innocent people and close the portal. Expect lighting, wind and danger!
A merchant has been having trouble with ghosts. Every few months the same spirits manifest causing trouble for the merchant. Once more they need these ghosts dealt with and will pay well for them to be dispelled, and more if they can be dealt with permanently.
A Bug’s Life (On the line)
While exploring a mine, an unexpected cave-in separates an explorer from her hiveborn companion. To make matters worse, the hiveborn’s trained insect guards are agitated and making it difficult to rescue the hiveborn. The explorer comes to town begging for help, horrified that her friend is going to bleed out, the cave is going to collapse, and her friend’s insects are going to run amok!
After a night of drinking, a sailor of dubious origins has approached you with a deal. The Sea Elf explained to you that their captain discovered some kind of relic in a temple, but turned on his crew and left them for dead as the temple sunk. The Sea Elf escaped, and has promised the Captain’s treasure for assistance in stealing back the relic. A frontal assault would be suicide, but there is a back entrance to the pirate’s hideou. With a little bit of stealth, they say, you can be in and out before anyone knows you were ever there.
The Necromancer’s Family
A concerned citizen approaches you for help. Having discovered that her brother’s wife is a necromancer, she is very concerned for his safety and the safety of her young nephew. She hasn’t heard from her brother since he made the discovery, and she fears the worst. Help her investigate the fate of her family, and maybe bop a few zombies along the way.
A forester has approached the town looking for help with a group of displaced barbarians who have settled on land reserved for the nobility. The forester would rather the group not come to harm, but knows that if the nobility finds out about the squatters they could be in a lot of danger. The forester has expressed that the people of New Calendale are the last chance they have of tracking and relocating the barbarians peacefully.
Put your Soul in Jeopardy!
Come be a Contestant for the hottest Game Show being transmitted to scrying orbs across all of Adravath! Your Knowledge of a wide variety of categories will be put to the Test. First place will take home a Fabulous Prize while Last place may regret they even tried… (Disclaimer: This Mod is Light Hearted and borderline silly)
Lair of the Infernalist
You’re approached by a cloaked figure under the cover of night, who hands you a letter. When you look up, the figure has vanished. The letter reads, “In the spirit of Realms of Night, I extend to you an invitation. One of my students no longer lives, and so I invite you to our realm to explore his refuge. Should you survive the experience, you may take with you whatever you find. Do not make light of this, your wit and strength will be pushed to their very limits. If you feel yourself sufficient, I will collect you upon the appointed night.”
This is a little embarrassing…
An infernal approaches you asking for help. He explains that he has an extremely embarrassing problem, and he can’t go to help for anyone with it other than mortals because if other Infernals find out about it, he’s pretty sure he’ll be laughed out of the Infernal Realm and lose his job (a fate far worse than death.)

September 2020 RoA Digital Event: Realms Night
The first RoA digital event was a huge success and we’re happy to announce we’re going to be hosting another! We’re also happy to say that it’s going to be themed around Realms Night! We understand that dressing up is a huge part of Realms Night, and we understand it’s upsetting that it can’t really be done effectively at a digital event. However, we’re excited to announce we’re also going to ALSO be hosting a dress-up style in-game event at a physical event within the first few events of the return to physical events.
As can be expected, there are aspects that will be somewhat difficult to translate into the digital space. Much in the same way that the digital space gave us the opportunity to showcase new and different aspects of the setting and lore, we will have the chance to do things we’ve been unable to do in previous years and hope you’ll join us for it.
What is Realms Night?
Please see the document here to learn the story of Realms Night!
Realms Night is a holiday that occurs in Adraveth every 4 years to celebrate the creation of the Infernal and Celestial Realms as well as to determine which realm will become empowered for the next 4 years. The celebrations usually take place over the course of a full weekend. All individuals have the option (and are encouraged to!) pick a side to represent: Celestial or Infernal. There is no social stigma to picking either side. During this time, Celestials and Infernals have been known to walk Adraveth itself encouraging and supporting those who have chosen to represent their respective sides. The restrictions on speaking with Infernal beings is lifted during this time in the spirit of the holiday. Games and contests are held across the world in celebration of this time, and their outcome has weight in determining which side wins it all.
Sept Digital Event Cost Breakdown
Based on feedback and the needs of the game, this event will require admission to attend. We’re expanding the rewards for attending to show our appreciation for your support. Please note, however, that unlike the first event, pre-registration and the admission fee are *Required to Attend*
The event will be held on both September 12th and 13th, 11AM-11PM on Saturday the 12th, and 11AM-9PM Sunday the 13th. The pre-reg link will be posted soon.
$20 Base pre reg
Extras players can do
Buy ins $5
$20 Raffle Package
For the digital event, we are going to ensure that players who are involved have the opportunity to be involved in two “mods.” If more is able to run, we will include it in the survey – more on the topic of surveys later.
Unlike normal mods, these mods will occur at scheduled times that we tell players in advance. (Folks are welcome to hang out in the “Scroll and Dragon” part of the Discord when not in a mod, and an NPC will still come and grab you when it is time.) We’ll post the exact mod prior to the event itself.
Most if not all of the mods available will have descriptions given prior to the survey being posted. In order to determine which mods players be involved with, we ask that people select and rank their top four choices from the plots on the attached list using the linked survey (In the event you are interested in less than 4 mods, please use the No Further Interest option). The theme of the upcoming Digital Event in September is around Realm’s Night (Full post can be found: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1S5UpHxW-IVKnvJ6J8K2DkxgGQiLlWNLx_6A7iTN2GP4/edit?fbclid=IwAR0mmZF7h31rHg3xUeriuQy74OXsxYZbvkEQmuqYVRUwXjQPnE6X0nQe0WQ) and as such the survey will run a bit differently. It will be very apparent how the survey will work when you see it. Based on the options people pick, we will determine which mods to run and when. The survey will generally will be open for several days.
In the event that a mod has high interest beyond the player cap, preference will be given to players who can best engage with the content, either by virtue of connections to the plot or NPCs they’ve already made in game, or having a skillset more relevant to the encounter.
If for some reason a mod that you are interested in does not happen, don’t worry as we’ll likely find a way to run it at an upcoming event. (In other words, no plots will penalize you because a mod isn’t run at the digital event.)
As always if folks have questions feel free to ask them and we’ll do our best to answer them quickly.
We look forward to chatting and roleplaying with you all soon!
We are using our discord server for this Digital Event, below is some information to keep in mind :
Any questions regarding this please reach out to Dave R via email Dave.R@realmsofadventure.net.

***** PRE-REG DEADLINE: Wednesday, January 15th, 2020, 11:59pm *****
Preregistration link: https://realmsofadventure.net/event-info/event-registration/

< < < Event Details > > >
The venue this year is Brentwood Country Club
The cost for the dinner is $70 per person (menu is posted below). It is a delicious hot buffet in a private room. Anyone is welcome to come – players, friends, cast, staff, family, and loved ones. This is a great time to bring someone who is thinking about coming to the game so they can meet our Family in a fun and social Out of Game setting!
Each person that currently attends or any person that is planning to attend a future game will get 4 character points and 7 tickets for the Door Prize Auction. Points and tickets will ONLY be given to current players and new players who plan on attending in the upcoming season.
We do not have a dress code, but we ask that you please dress respectably. Dress pants or skirts, nice jeans, dresses, and even ties are all acceptable. (This is an Out of Game event so please do not wear your costume.)
Since this is an official RoA event, if you attend you will receive 5 Character Points! These points are non-transferable and will ONLY be given to current players and new players who plan on attending in the upcoming season. Normally a new player starts the game with 55 (or 60 with a background) Character Points but if you attend the dinner, you will have 59 (or 64) Character Points to spend!
Votes can be submitted via this form: https://forms.gle/yy4eaiJvS9UPWGLLA (Note in the top description on the form itself is a link to the 2019 season roster, any names in green are players that are eligible for the rookie of the year award.)
This is our Annual Awards Dinner and that means awards! Each award won is worth 2 Character Points! Two types of awards will be given out:
1) The first group of awards are those voted on by you, our dedicated players (instructions on voting will be posted soon). Please follow these instructions as any votes that do not follow the rules will not be counted. You can only vote ONCE. Only people who have attended RoA can vote in the provided categories.
2) The second group of awards is granted by cast and staff to those players who have done memorable things over the past season. These are things that even the player who receives the award might not even realize made such an impact. You never know what we’ll come up with!
< < < Auctions > > >
Here’s how they work. There will be a number of In Game items up for auction. Staff will present and read the description of each item in the auctions. After they are done, the items and a printed description will be placed in front of their own ticket containers. Separate your tickets and hold onto the ones that say “KEEP THIS COUPON.” You can place the ones that say “TICKET” into any bowl or bowls that you want. The tickets will be shuffled and one drawn at random. If your ticket number is called, you win! Specific details follow for each auction. The Premium auction has cards that can be purchased.
Door Prize Auction
Open to all, there will be a number of In Game items up for auction. These could include scrolls, powerful potions, magic items, and even a mystery bundle!
The 7 tickets for the Door prize Auction will ONLY be given to current players or those who are planning to attend RoA in the upcoming season. You place as many tickets as you want into each container, but you can only win ONE item from this auction. If you win more than one item, you can pick which one you would like to keep and another ticket will be drawn for the other.
Gift of Elantrai Auction
This auction is ONLY open to players and upcoming players who have NO magic items. This is specific to the PLAYER, not if you have an Alt Character without any magic items. Each entrant will receive three tickets to be used in this special auction.
The Elantrai Auction drawing shall take place before the other auctions, so anyone walking into the dinner without a magic item shall be eligible for the Elantrai Auction.
This auction is completely optional. Unlike the Door Prize auction, you can win up to two items in this auction. Tickets will be available for purchase at the dinner. Tickets are not very expensive so everyone has a chance to participate.(Ticket prices are $5 for 3 Tickets.)
The details of the Premium items will be revealed before tickets are sold so everyone can think about what items they might want to try for. The items in this auction are considered rare and exceptional and even include a magic weapon!
If you can’t make it to the dinner but still want to participate in the Premium Auction, you can make arrangements with someone else to purchase tickets on your behalf and participate for you. Do not ask Cast or Staff members to do so.
< < < Menu > > >
Herb Crusted Turkey Breast
Marinated London Broil
Hot Chafing Dishes
Penne A la Vodka
Cabernet Braised Short Ribs
Tossed Garden Salad
International cheese Basket
Pasta salad with roasted red Peppers and veg
Freshly Baked Cookie Platter
< < < Important Note > > >
Since this is an official RoA function, all are expected to follow our usual policies, especially those concerning drugs. Those who break this policy by bringing or using illegal drugs (or misusing legal ones) on the premises, parking lot, or any nearby areas will face serious consequences. We ask that you please keep this in mind so everyone can enjoy themselves.
We also allow the legal consumption of alcohol at these events there will be a cash bar available. Please drink responsibly. Realms of Adventure does not condone drinking and driving. If you are planning on drinking make plans to ride with someone. We ask that you please keep this in mind so everyone can enjoy themselves and be safe.
< < < If you pay for the dinner, EVEN IF YOU ARE UNABLE TO ATTEND > > >
If you plan to do this, you MUST LET US KNOW when pre-regging for the dinner. Put “NO DINNER” in the box after your name on the pre-reg link. We need to give the restaurant an accurate headcount. (Example: Hayley Princeton – NO DINNER)
You will receive the following:
You must make arrangements with a player (not Cast or Staff members) to distribute your tickets in the auctions. You must inform BOTH Ryan and Dave R who has been designated.
If you do NOT pay for the dinner, but still want to participate in the Premium Auction, you can make arrangements with someone else to purchase tickets on your behalf and participate for you. Do not ask Cast or Staff members to do so. You must inform BOTH Ryan and Dave R who has been designated.
As said above, the Elantrai Auction drawing shall take place before the other auctions, so anyone walking into the dinner without a magic item shall be eligible for the Elantrai Auction.
< < < Premium Auction Stretch Goals > > >
Based on player feedback, we agreed that all those who put into the Premium Auction deserve something, even if they don’t end up winning an item directly. After all, everything you put into that auction goes to making the game as a whole better. It is with that in mind that we are pleased to continue with the following system:
ALL players that put in at least $5 into the Premium Auction shall receive an amount of character points based upon goals that we’re going to set for the total. (NOTE: This includes players that haven’t pre-regged/aren’t able to attend, as long as they are able to find someone to handle their tickets and money.)
The points above are considered ACTIVE (the same category as the points gained from the dinner). So, you may spend them without worry on your next update. Should you not spend them, they will be banked.
We look forward to seeing old friends and making new ones!

It’s time to vote for the recipients of the 2018 Season Awards, to be unveiled at the 2019 Winter Awards Dinner celebration!
Lets get those votes in! Remember, these categories are decided by YOU, the RoA community. As we have seen in the past, EVERY vote counts!
***** Official polling will end Friday, January 18th, 2019 at 11:59pm. *****
* PLEASE FOLLOW THESE SIMPLE INSTRUCTIONS *
1) Rookie of the Year – This award goes to the best overall new player for the year. This should be the person you think really made a positive impact on the game in their first year. This award is open only to players who started at RoA in the 2017 season (newbies are denoted in Green Text in the list below).
2) Best Racial Portrayal (Pixie, Kelonian, Elf, Dwarf, Barbarian, Gypsy etc.) – Person who best portrays the race/culture their character is supposed to be from. This can be any human culture or other race.
3) Best Costume – Person who has the best overall costume.
4) Best Hero – Person who you feel is the best personification of a hero. Note that this can be anyone YOU feel this way about. If you feel that a person who most people think is evil was the most heroic, then put his/her name down!
5) Best Villain – Person who you feel is the best personification of a villain. Note that this can be anyone YOU feel this way about. If you feel that a person who most people think is a good guy was the most villainous, then put his/her name down!
6) Best Role Player (Male) – Male who was the best overall roleplayer.
7) Best Role Player (Female) – Female who was the best overall roleplayer.
8) Best Portrayal of Faith – The person who you feel most accurately portrayed and adhered to the tenants and beliefs of an in-game church. NOTE: This is not meant to be a “Best Cleric” award. Remember, though the overwhelming majority of Adraveth’s denizens are unable to channel divine magic, many are still deeply religious and choose to live their lives in accordance with the teachings of one of the world’s many faiths.
The act of “campaigning” for oneself or others (even if the disclaimer “not intended to sway the voting” or anything similar is added) has caused issues and controversy in the past so we ask that people avoid doing so. The awards are not meant to be a popularity contest or a political race, so please just vote for who YOU feel is a good candidate for an award. The awards is a happy and fun part of the end of one year and beginning of a new one. Let’s keep it that way and drama free! Further posts of that type will be removed.
Thanks for your understanding and cooperation.
