ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS
The Waypoint Staff would like to take the time to thank our friends and family who have put up with all the
days and nights that it took us to put this rulebook together. We know it gets silly listening to our discussions
so thank you for not calling the police or the crazy hospital and having us committed.
We also want to thank all the people in the LARP community whose ideas and comments, whether sought out
or just overheard, have given us inspiration to create Waypoint. It is because of you this book was able to be
completed.
We hope you enjoy what follows and please feel free to contact us with any questions or comments. Now quit
reading this part and start reading the rules.

large tree, building, door, wall or boulder) stops the ef-

TRIANGULATED EFFECTS
A triangulated effect is represented by throwing two
packets. Those packets serve as point A and B. The
location of the caster is considered point C. Anyone
within the triangle created is considered to be a target.
GLOBAL EFFECTS
A global effect is represented by declaring Everyone

the voice of the person announcing the effect is con-
sidered to be a target.
SPECIAL EFFECTS
Certain effects have special areas of effect but are
mainly used by the game staff.

When a game stop effect is countered, none of the
countered effects take place. You cannot counter a
counter.
REDIRECT
When a game stop effect is redirected, the person who
countered it may then use it immediately as though
they were the originator. They declare the area and the
effect again. When using a redirect, it is considered
a miscellaneous effect and is therefore unable to be
countered.

TIME REDUCTION
All skills that reduce time are taken in steps, not added
together. First you remove set time increment deduc-
tions and then percentage deductions. As an example
if you have a skill with a 20 second charge. You have a
skill that reduces it by 10 seconds, one that reduces it
by 50% and another skill that reduces it by 20%. First
you subtract 10 seconds reducing it to 10 seconds, then
by 50% reducing it to 5 seconds, then by 20%, bringing

there is no team leader you can return this tag to any

one on the team. This member is not allowed to join or
form another team until the following event.
If your team is on hiatus or you are the last member of
a team you may leave by simply informing NPC camp
at an event.

HIATUS
A team can be placed on hiatus by the leader of a
team any time before an event begins. This effectively
freezes the teams status meaning that during the
following event none of the team members are able
to benefit from the team abilities. This is good if you
know that your team may be unable to attend a few
events or if you will have less than 3 members present
at the event. This also prevents your team from dis-
solving.
Returning from hiatus is also done by the primary
leader prior to an event. When the team returns from
hiatus they gain the benefits they would have been en-
titled to per the event calculation prior to the hiatus.

STRUCTURE POINTS
Most items have structure points. This determines
how difficult they are to destroy by normal means. All
items have 2 structure points unless the item states
otherwise.

TAGS AND ITEMS


If you possess the tag you possess the item. If you pos-
sess the phys rep, you may request the tag if you took
it from another player or NPC. Some phys reps do not
have tags. If you hand someone a phys rep they should
also hand you the tag for it if it has one.

TAKING ITEMS
Weapons, armor, shields, trinkets and other items can
be taken if you find them lying about. If taken you
must bring the item to NPC Camp so that the phys
rep can be returned to its owner. If the phys rep is not
turned in within one hour then it will be assumed you
are actually trying to steal the item.
Out of games items that do not belong to you should
not be taken. Please be respectful of other peoples
property. At the same time do not hide your in game
items amongst your out of game things. If you are
caught doing this the items are forfeit.
