    Tales from the Cotting House Special Auction Items

  11. Pick A Fairy Tale to be a Plot Line
    Have a story you always wanted to see play out in a LARP? Pick a Fairy Tale, Legend, Myth, Tall Tale, or other Story that you would like to see made into a Plotline at Tales. This will not be a personal plot line, but one that is open to all players. This auction just gives you the opportunity to name a story you'd like to see in Tales and like to see how our Staff takes inspiration from it and changes it around. Once picked, the Tales staff will twist it in the way we do and make it a part of Tales, so we cannot promise it will be exactly like the story you selected (but will be enough that you will recognize it). If you choose something we were already doing as a plotline, we will let you choose a different story.
  12. Personal Event Teaser Vignettes
    At the start of each game, you will receive an event teaser personally tailored to your character.
  13. IG Snippet of Info
    You will start each event with a snippet of info - be it a rumor, a minor dream, or some insight, similar to a passive Info Skill and tailored to your Character.
  14. Double Event CP for your First Year
    You will receive double the event, cleanup, and PEL CP for your first year

FOR SALE: Influence Tokens! - This is not an auction item, but rather a sale item. We will be offering Influence Tokens for the Merchant Board for sale during the Adventure Day ($5 per token). You can put these influence tokens on different aspects of the Written World and on various "themes" of tales to influence the direction that Tales will go. Every influence token placed will be taken into consideration.
