Great Escape on the Lake 2021 – Questing

This annual event has

Feasting and celebration, with a fantasy flourish, and set in medieval times.

It is influenced by, a personal favorite of Jen and I’s, “The Princess Bride”, and books and movies such as Narnia, by C.S. Lewis; and The Hobbit and the Lord of the Rings by JRR Tolkien!  As well as, contributions by authors such as, Mr. L.E. Modesitt Jr…and others…

Marketplace, & Coinage...

How does the coinage and market work?

All in-game coin and golds may be used to trade among players, to purchase advanced quests, and to acquire quest items and prize support from the GEA Inn at the center of town.

Dragon Kill Points (DKP) are valued in the weight of various metals.  Copper, silver, gold, and platinum.  The metals we possess directly relate to our ability to advance our questlines, as coinage is an integral part of the game.  LARP weapons may be purchased with DKP!

  • 1 Copper = 10 half coppers = 1 DKP
  • 1 Silver = 10 Coppers = 10 DKP
  • 1 Gold = 10 Silvers = 100 DKP
  • 1 Platinum = 10 Gold = 1,000 DKP
  • Example: 1,567 coppers = 1 Plat, 5 Gold, 6 Silver, and 7 Coppers = 1,567 DKP.

Try your hand at panning for gold!  One of Ken’s most enjoyable past times is to mine for gold.  Our dirt comes direct to us from Roaring Camp Mining Co. on Clinton Bar in the Mokelume River Canyon!

"The Queens Ransom"

Meet us at the Ports of Gonzaie and Gilead Aug. 18-22nd for an epic adventure!

“Hoist sail, ye flea bitten sea dogs!”, raged the infuriated captain of the vessel.  As the scow slowly slipped from the docks, red streamers of newfound dawn began to edge over the horizon.  Glimpses of shadows appeared and were gone as the bustle of merchants slowly crowded the littered streets in the now distant port…
