We’re always willing to assist members in forming new domains (our basic unit of organisation for running games) if there is no existing domain nearby. You can contact the National Coordinator (or one of his assistants) who will help guide you through the formation of a Domain. Current contact details for the National Coordinators office can be found on our ‘contact us’ page.
If you live in a county with an existing domain, we would prefer that you work with the coordinator for that domain to set up a new game or join one of their existing games as Larps benefit from increased size.
To form an independent domain, the basic steps are:
- Recruit new people to join until you have at least five members to join your domain.
- Agree upon one member to act as the new domain coordinator and a domain storyteller.
- Contact the National Coordinator informing him of your intent.
Before conducting games, the newly approved chapter will need to work with the National Storyteller’s office to create venue style sheets for their games (this serves to ensure the new games sync up with the existing chronicle). We recommend that new domains start with a single venue until they run a few games and get a feel for the global chronicle.
Organizing a chapter’s first few games is often the most difficult part of starting a new Camarilla group, so please ask the National storyteller for support and information about the chronicle’s history and current storylines. New venue storytellers might also like to read the old Storyteller Guide located on the international wiki. This document discusses storytelling practices, policies, and theories specific to the global sanctioned chronicle though some of the information it contains is specific to the US affiliate.
Both the domain coordinator and domain storyteller should obtain templates for their reports and a list of current national policies from the National officers. They are then responsible for report on events within their domain and disseminate information from elsewhere to the domain members so that their domain can be an integrated part of the global organization.
Once your domain has been approved and your storyteller has received approval for the venue style sheet, your characters are ready to enter into the global sanctioned chronicle. If you announce your game on our forums, you may find that players will travel to join you and welcome you as you take your first steps into our game. It’s an exciting time, and there are many members and officers ready to help you. All you have to do is ask.
We hope this club will give you as much enjoyment as it has given us.
