Frequently Asked Questions

Question: What do you recommended to learn the most about Live Adventures while At Origins.
Answer:
NERO Encourages each person to experience the thrill of Live Adventures by participating in the Grand Boffer Tournament for charity, 1 general Sword Tournament or Champion Challenge Duel, two 2-hour Live Adventure, and all 3 days enjoying themselves in the Live Adventure Tavern - For a weekend package cost of $33.00, you will fully experience a NERO Event. Certainly a day in the Live Tavern and one Adventure and one lesson in Sword Fighting will provide sufficient knowledge on live adventures.

Question: If I do not want to use Boffer Swords and Sorcery Orbs, do I have too?
Answer:
Absolutely not. There is no requirement in the NERO Game System
© that you must use Boffer Swords and Spell Orbs, or that you must be part of the mock combat scenarios that play out. The system allows players to remain in the 'safe zone' of the game and interact with other players in relative safety. The more interactive players can even enter into the 'Adventure Zone' wearing a orange headband (which we will supply to you) that identifies you to everyone else that you are not 'combat active' and are not to be confronted for mock combat or struck with any combat oriented equipment. .
