Cabin Information & Assignments

Myth’s Damar Keep has three separate districts (The Glade, The Crossing, and the Town Proper) each with its own set of cabin residences. Here is information to help you prepare to stay in one of these cabins. If you still have questions, contact us at support@mythlarp.com:

  • Drop off and Pick Up: As long the the ground isn’t muddy, you are allowed to drive your vehicle to your cabin. If the road to your cabin is too muddy you will need to walk your gear to and from your cabin (approximately 1/8 mile).
  • Sleeping Assignments: When you register for Myth, you may choose what cabin you would like to stay in. All cabins are issued on a first-come-first-served basis. If you’d like your group to take over an entire cabin, it is recommended you have enough people in your group to take up all the slots in that cabin.
  • People Per Cabin: Most cabins sleep an average of 10 people utilizing bunks.
  • Bathrooms: Each town has its own bathroom/shower units. These bathrooms/showers are used by all regardless of gender. If you are not comfortable with this, there are unisex bathrooms in the lower level of the tavern.
  • Adventurers Per Cabin: Cabins in these two districts sleep an average of 10 people using 5 twin-sized bunk beds.
  • Heat: These cabins are drafty, are not heated, nor are they insulated. During the cooler months it is recommended you have suitable sleeping gear to handle the cold. You are welcome to move to the heated tavern at any time if you feel you will not be warm enough in your cabin.
  • Electricity: Cabins do NOT have power. You may want to consider these camping lights.
  • Sleeping Gear: Aside from a thin mattress on your twin-sized bunk bed, nothing else is provided for your bunk.
  • Storage: Your out-of-game items should be stored underneath your shared bunk. If there is not enough space under your bunk you may also bring a foot locker. It is recommended you have a lock for your foot locker and store nothing of value you it. Do not store IN GAME ITEMS under your bunk.
  • Bathrooms: Each district has a co-ed bathroom/shower. During the colder months these bathrooms are closed to prevent damage to the water lines.
  • Cleaning Supplies: While there are brooms and dust pans at the camp, there is often only one set for an entire district. You are required to remove all trash from your cabin, sweep it clean, and leave it in better condition than when you arrived. We recommend bringing a trash bag, broom and dustpan to take care of your cabin without having to wait. Trash must be brought to the dumpster and you must have your cabin checked by the game staff before you leave.
  • Smoking: Our preference is that you smoke in the parking lot, however, if you are unable to make it to the parking lot you may smoke outdoors in the cabin proper area. Please be considerate of the camp and properly dispose of your butts so we may continue to make this option available. Smoking in the woods, cabins or the tavern is not allowed.
  • Swimming/Boating: Swimming is not allowed. Please stay out of the ponds and streams and off of boats.
  • Fires: You are allowed to have campfires in designated areas. This fire MUST be monitored by one person who is not allowed to leave the area or go to Dedrot’s Realm until the fire is out. Please have a bucket of water available to help put the fire out quickly if needed.

The bridge in the southern portion of the above Glade map leads to the town proper area with the Dancing Dragonfly. To the north, a precarious trail (yellow trail) leads through the woods. It is easy to get lost on the trail at night and there are many large stones and wetlands. Also in the Glade area is an amphitheater with benches and a podium. Residents closer to the bridge often enjoy the sound of the waterfall during times when the pond known as the Cauldron is full.

This district in Damar Keep has a small crossing bridge with a well-traveled trail that leads to the city of Ivygate (or Windhold if you follow the split in the road). Residents of the village enjoy the gentle sound of the brook that flows into the pond known as the Cauldron. While the town guard makes every effort, this side of town seems to be a more active target for invaders and monsters. You have been warned, adventurer. Be sure you are always on your guard when staying in this part of Damar Keep.

High atop the Windless Hill sits Damar Keep. To its south is the Town Proper where the Dancing Dragonfly and Town Hall stand. The Dancing Dragonfly Tavern is the centerpiece of the town complete with heat, plenty of seating, and drinks for the weary adventurer. It is a gathering place for friends before setting off to see what the forest has to offer. Here is information you need to know about the tavern:

  • Two Floors: The building has two floors – a main floor and a basement level. The in game portions of Myth take place on the main floor while the cast and out-of-game activities take place in the basement area. Players are also welcome to pull up a mattress to sleep in the tavern once the game ends in the evening. You’ll just need to pick up your things before the game starts again in the morning.
  • A Building Divided: On one half of the main floor the cast lay out mattresses and have their beds read to sleep at night. On the other half is the game tavern called The Dancing Dragonfly.
  • Heat: Both floors of the building are heated.
  • Bathrooms: There are bathrooms on both floors of the building. The basement bathrooms have modern showers, which are available to players and cast at all times. Players should try to avoid using the basement bathroom during the game day as it is near the area cast are prepping for the next encounter. Please pick up after yourself. We apologize in advance that costuming, towels, clothing, props, weapons, etc., left behind in the bathroom will be disposed of.
  • Mattresses: If you are planning to sleep in the tavern there are a limited number of mattresses available (typically allocated for the cast). You may need to have your own air mattress available or a willingness to sleep on a wood floor.
  • Refrigerator: There is a player/cast refrigerator in the cast sleeping side of the tavern that is available for player and cast use.
  • Kitchen: The tavern does have a kitchen area, which is off limits to all players and cast. Only the kitchen staff is allowed in the kitchen.

Event Information for Players

  1. Where to go: Once you’ve parked your vehicle in the parking lot, you’ll notice the large building overlooking it (Pictured above). As an NPC, you can enter through one of the doors on the lower level. The downstairs area is known as Game Operations (Ops). It is where all NPCs operate to make the game story happen. 
  2. Check-In: Once you’ve entered Game Operations, ask if there is anyone from Member Services around. If no one is available, ask for the Director, Assistant Director, or GM (Game Manager). Anyone can show you where to sign in. Member Services will be able to show you around and get you familiar with the people and the camp. 
  3. Unpacking Your Car: It is essential to know that there are no vehicles allow on-site while the Game is running. This restriction doesn’t affect NPCs who typically move their gear from the parking lot into the lower level of the tavern building. Work with Member Services for the best time to move your bedding into the common area. Game Check-in takes place in the common area, so setting up bedding usually takes place after this around 9:00 pm. 
  4. Rules Workshop: Our Rule Workshop covers game rules. This workshop typically takes place around 8:00 to 8:30 pm on the Friday evening of the event.
  5. Game Start: The action at Myth begins at 10:00 pm. Ideally, NPCs will be in Game Operations and ready to go before 9:30 pm. 

Myth supplies all of your food & drink for the event, as well as costuming and LARP weapons. For your comfort and safety, we recommend bringing the following to events:

General 

  1. First Aid Kit or First-aid supplies
  2. Insect repellent
  3. Spare eyeglasses/contact lens supplies. Contacts are the preferred way to see at Myth. They allow you to wear masks more efficiently, and combat won’t knock them off your head.
  4. Cosmetics
  5. License/ID
  6. Cellphone & charger
  7. Light: Having a small flashlight or glowstick for emergencies is advisable. You shouldn’t use a flashlight to walk around the game area unless there is an emergency.

Food

As an NPC, Myth supplies all of your meals, snacks, and drinks for the weekend. The menu includes breakfast on Saturday and Sunday, plus lunch and dinner on Saturday. There are snacks and beverages available at all times in Game Operations. While we do our best to accommodate a variety of dietary restrictions, including vegetarian and vegan, it isn’t always possible for us to provide for every need. If you have a very restrictive diet, you may want to consider bringing food options.

Health & Hygiene

  1. Prescription medications
  2. Painkillers (like ibuprofen or aspirin)
  3. Toothbrush & toothpaste
  4. Mouthwash
  5. Floss
  6. Shampoo
  7. Soap
  8. Brush/comb
  9. Deodorant
  10. Hand sanitizer
  11. Quick Drying Towel (2)
  12. Menstrual products
  13. Alcohol or antiseptic wipes

Sleeping

  1. Sleeping Bag / Blankets
  2. Pillow
  3. Cot
  4. Earplugs
  5. Air Mattress and a means to inflate it
  6. Footlocker and combination lock. Use this to store things like car keys.
  7. Mosquito net: while not required, mosquitos happen, and keeping them off of you is golden.

Clothing

Myth supplies all of your costuming and weapons. These are the things you’ll need to supply:

  1. Non-descript black clothing. This attire is often black sweats with no logos that can be worn underneath the costuming Myth provides. Long sleeve tops are preferred.
  2. Underwear: Six pairs of underwear to start. You may need more or less. Moisture-wicking underwear is the best choice.
  3. Long Underwear: Long underwear is very helpful during the colder months. Most costuming at Myth makes you look good but doesn’t necessarily keep you warm.
  4. T-Shirts: Six logo-free black t-shirts help layer in warmer or cooler times of the year. Long-sleeve and short-sleeve options are best. 
  5. Socks: We recommend bringing around six pairs of socks as a starting point. You may find this to be too few. Consider synthetic or wool. 
  6. Warm hat: During the colder months, a non-descript black hat helps with warmth while playing monsters.
  7. Gloves: During the colder months, gloves are wise to have. As with everything else, something non-descript and black is perfect.
  8. Shoes/Boots: black or brown boots, sneakers, or shoes with no logos are ideal for footwear.
  9. Belt: Myth has belts, but they are not always the perfect fit for every body type. Having a belt or two of your own is advised.

There are things you don’t need to bring to Myth (or shouldn’t bring). These include:

  • Real Weapons: Guns, swords, and real weapons are not allowed at Myth. Please leave them at home as bringing them could result in disciplinary action. 
  • LARP Weapons & Armor: Myth provides all of your game weapons. If you choose to bring your own, they must pass a safety inspection before being allowed in the Game. 
  • Spell Packets: If we have you playing a spell caster, we’ll provide the spell packets you need to succeed.
  • Water: You are welcome to bring a water bottle to keep in your sleeping area or Game Operations. Myth will provide water as well as Gatorade to keep you properly hydrated.
  • Costuming: Since Myth supplies your costuming, anything you choose to bring is optional. Please make sure to stow your personal costuming after use, so it isn’t mixed in with Myth costumes and lost.
  • Expensive valuables: Leave your laptop, expensive costuming, cash, or anything else you wouldn’t leave alone on a public table. 

NPCs can sleep upstairs in the common area of the tavern building or downstairs near the NPC center if space is available. This building has the following amenities:

  • Refrigerator: While food for NPCs at Myth is free, you may choose to bring something specific to accommodate your dietary needs. There is a refrigerator in the common area where any food you’d like to bring can be stored. Please be considerate of how much you store, so others have space for things they need to bring.
  • Heat: During the colder months, the building has heat. There is also a fireplace for more warmth and ambiance. 
  • Electricity: You will have access to electrical outlets, which can be used to power a fan, CPAP machines, electric blankets, etc. This building also has a backup generator.
  • Mattresses: There will be camp mattresses available for those who need them. We recommend bringing an air mattress if you have one. 
  • Bathrooms/Showers: There are modern bathrooms on the upper and lower floors of the tavern building. The bathrooms on the lower level have modern, clean shower stalls. 

If you are planning to sleep at home, please let the Director know for emergency purposes. 

In addition to sleeping in the tavern building or heading home at night, NPCs are welcome to bring a tent to stay outdoors. Here are some points to note about staying in a tent:

  • Notify the Director: For safety purposes, please let the Director know you are sleeping outdoors and where your tent is. Knowing where you will enable us to find you in the event of an emergency.
  • Stay Out of Game: Your tent may not be in the gameplay area. If you aren’t sure where you can set up, ask us. We are here to help.
  • Lock Things Up: Do not keep valuables in your tent. Instead, lock them in your vehicle or a large footlocker. Myth is not responsible for lost or stolen items. 
  • Electricity: You may be able to run a 50′ – 100′ extension cord from the tavern building to your tent. This option is not guaranteed. Do not use electric heaters in your tent.

Here is a tent-camping checklist with things to remember:

  • Tent (Be sure you have all the necessary poles and stakes)
  • Mallet (To secure stakes in the ground)
  • Sunshade or tarp
  • Sleeping bags
  • Sleeping pads or a light air mattress
  • Pillows
  • Pocket knife

On Friday evening of the event, our Member Services team conducts a New Player Workshop. During this workshop, we go over the game rules and answer any questions you may have. Our goal is to make sure you are comfortable and have a good understanding of essential game rules.

The New Player Workshop is open to all new players and NPCs. When you arrive, be sure to ask where and when it takes place. Be sure to sign up for our email list if you’re looking to attend pre-event Rules Workshops or fight practices.

All NPCs have access to our Member Services team. These talented individuals are happy to introduce you to the Director and other key people you’ll game with throughout the event. Member services will also take you on a tour that includes Game Operations, show you where you are sleeping, where to get food, and more. Their goal is to make you feel welcome, comfortable, and informed.

When you arrive, ask if there is anyone from Member Services to show you around.
