Harvest Tithe at Herofest LARP

With the many problems following the Cataclysm on Orin Rakatha the Mystics have declared that ways should be found to reduce the amount of fighting between Nations as they attempt to hold areas of the land where vital resources are located; welcome to ‘The Harvest Tithe’, a contest that can be played between Nations to gain commodities with no actual combat necessary.

The spread of Commodities

Orin Rakatha has been split into 32 territories, and a single type of commodity may be obtained from each. The quantities of these commodities vary, with the maximum available in each territory displayed and each type of commodity can be found in 4 different territories

The maximum number of each type of piece available is:  6 Soldiers, 4 Archers, 4 Crossbowmen, 4 Militiamen, 4 Rangers, 1 Mage, 1 Healer, and 1 Ritualist.

How the game plays on the event

How the game plays between events

(Play By Email / Downtime Game)

After each Herofest event, every player that attended can email harvesttithe@herofest.co.uk with one game order to deploy one piece of their choice. Their order should simply state the name of the piece type, e.g. Ranger, and to which territory e.g. West Waite.

Players can choose any one of the normal playing pieces with the exception of Healers, Mages and Ritualists. Unlike the game on the event there is no limit to the number of normal pieces that the Nation can use in play by mail.

Harvest Tithe between event orders will be accepted up to 5pm of the Tuesday before each Herofest event

Gains made though the between event turns will be given to Factions at the event, and results will be posted.
