Two new orcs! - Looking for information on how to join Drachenfest orcs

Beitrag von Cgrey » Di 18. Apr 2017, 19:30

Throm'ka!

We are looking for information on how to join the orc camp at Drachenfest.

We'd be coming from Ireland, if not this year then the next year. My boyfriend and I have been searching the forums (we do not speak German so it has been a little challenging!) for any information and we can't seem to find what we are looking for.

We found this thread (Du bist neu hier und suchst Anschluss?) and would like to learn more on how everything works. We'd also like clarification on the requirements for being approved and the process of applying.

We also translated the flowchart in that thread and concluded that we need to "Melde dich beim Dachverband Altes Blut" but what is the Dachverband Altes Blut? Is this information still valid and relevant?

There aren't any Irish orc clans, the LARP scene in Ireland is still pretty small. So we'd be joining independently, but we'd like to join one of the clans at Drachenfest if possible.

Are there any documents or checklists with this information? A checklist or step-by-step guide would be uber helpful!

For more specific questions:
  • How do we join a clan?
  • Is there any information or lore for each clan?
  • Is the joining fee still 10 euro each? And how do we pay?
  • How do we go about getting registered and approved?
  • What are the professions and ranks available to be played?
  • Any general information about the application and character creation would be helpful.
  • Is there anything else we'd need to know?
Again, a checklist or step-by-step guide would be very very helpful. Or any documentation such as an orc player handbook to help with classes, professions, etc.

Thank you very much for reading, your help is seriously appreciated! Hopefully we'll see you at a Drachenfest in the future!

Hi there and welcome!
Ok..where to start?

The thread you mentioned in your post is a pretty good starting point. The Alte Blut (old/ancient blood) is still up and kicking. If you click on the [Spoiler] button, you should be able to follow the links. Most of the stuff will be german though, so google translate will give you (at least) an idea of whats going on.
Over the years, the DF Orcs have aquired a couple of northern orcplayers, mosty Danes, who, it good old tradition, showed up, beat their axes on their shields, decided to stay and are now a beloved part of the DF-Orc-Camp.

They are also non-german-speakers, but communication has not really been an issue.
I think they might reply here pretty soon.

Again, welcome to the forum.

Thank you for the response!

Google translate is very bad, sorry.

So I need to contact the clans from the spoilers to join orcs at Drachenfest?

Zhûul summoned us and here they are...

Céad míle fáilte romhaibh (hope i wrote that right )
Cheerz and welcome here.

My name is Stripe, known as the head Orga of the OCl camp, or Campdaddy, old fart and so on... ;)
Zhûul already mentioned the spoiler function. Now i´d like to help ye with some of your questions.

First things first. You don´t have to be part of a Clan to join us on the Dragonfest. We have many Clanless players in our camp, playing independend
Orcs, looking for a Clan to join or just following their own goals. This is a good way to learn more about other clans and find the right one which is most to your liking. Don´t be afraid, we won´t let u down and help ya find your way in game and outside of it.

Our northern brothers, the Orc clan named "Okup Shakamp" can tell ye a lot of the way how it is, to join our lovely little band ;)

So here a the first steps for joining the OCL Camp on the DF 2017:

At first we need your application. To do that click --->here
You will find all u need to know about "how to join us on the DF". We wrote everything in english as well.
Many of your questions will be answered there fer sure.

We are working on a guide for Orcplayers (yeah we are working on it already for a long time). It will come in a short while...for sure.
In the meantime you may look for and find some inspirations in our application thread --->click me again Just click the diffrent applications to see some nice pictures of our Orcplayers.

The Campee is 10 Euros. campfee

So i hope my text helped you a little and answered a few of your questions.

Looking forward to read and see more of you.

If u have more questions, fire away

Sláinte and best regards
Stripe

Thank you so much, this was very helpful! And your Gaelic was very good too!

Are there any other fees besides the camp fees? What about storage fees?

What about weapons? How should they look?

So basically to join: we need to create an application (have good detailed costumes), get that approved, and pay the fees?

Low-ranked Okup Shakamb orc dropping by - Just saying hi, and welcome to the gang guys. It seems you've been helped well on your way, but like the others said. Just ask away - the community is nice and helpful. But in order to get approved and have your gear-checked there's a bunch of standards. Looking through the (application)anmeldung section under DF, should do the trick get you an insight into what is acceptable and what isn't.

Looking forward to learn more about you guys, see more of what you've got going and possibly brofist you at DF17. "You'll get there if you put in the effort" - that's a good tip.

;D

Hey again,

no there are no storage fees. The only thing you have to pay for (if u haven´t already), beside the Ocl camp fee , is the Dragonfest ticket.
The ticket for the df 2017 is bought here ----> Drachenfest online subscription

Weapons.. well..dont u have any?
We use Larpweapons made of Latex and/or foam. There are many online stores where u can purchase this LARP weapons. Even some which are specialized in the making of Orklike cleavers, swords, scimitars and so on...just ask uncle Google ;)

You bet. Thats basically all. Just don´t ferget, to play an orc u´ll need a Orcmask as well.
"No Mask, No Orc" that´s the rule

Cheerz again

Thank you everyone you've all been super helpful.

And thanks for the weapon information wanted to double check with you.

Chances are we won't be able to join this year but we have plans to in 2018. Gives us a whole year to prepare and look forward to. :)

Just another quick question. Is it acceptable to play a Warcraft orc? Such as with a Warcraft orc mask?

I've noticed a lot of the applications seem to be inspired by Tolkien Lord of the Rings.

Hey there,

Of course it is acceptable to play an Warcraft inspired Orc as long as it looks good. Its very difficult to play Orcs of this stature because..hm..of the stature i guess :scrat: ;D

So take yer time get inspired. I'm looking forward to 2018 and your application then.

Cheerz again
