Curious Pastimes

Curious Pastimes is an organisation that runs one of the best-known live action role-playing campaigns in the UK. CP is a profit-making company headquartered in Moreton in the Wirral in Northern England; the company was formed as a break away group from the Lorien Trust. Curious Pastimes’ ongoing LARP campaign is called Renewal.. The campaign uses its own set of LARP rules, adapted from the Lorien Trust Rules System. Renewal is a "Fest" Game, in which large numbers of players interact with one another and with a small number of briefed non-player characters, climaxing in pre-arranged mass battles between even numbers at the two longer events; these battles represent one of the major variations from the Gathering parent-game, being Player-versus-Monster battles. With 800 players attending the main event in August, Renewal is the third-largest fest campaign in the UK, behind the Gathering and Profound Decisions' Empire; the Renewal Campaign comprises four events each year, culminating in the flagship event called Renewal, held every year over the August Bank Holiday weekend.

All the events take place on weekends. Curious Pastimes runs a system for formally approving smaller events staged by the various participating groups and factions throughout the year; the events vary in size from 100 to 1000 people and present different aspects of the ongoing Renewal Campaign. The events are: A battle event, traditionally on May Day Long Weekend, which will be held on Easter Weekend at Paccar Scout Camp, Chalfont Heights in 2011; the event emphasizes two mass battles against an identified game-plot enemy. The event attracts about 400-500 players. A plot event on the second or third weekend of June at Barnswood Scout Camp in Leek; the event emphasizes introducing new plot elements, giving players access to significant non-player characters, distributing in-game information. The event attracts about 250-300 players. Fayre on the second or third weekend of July at Woodhouse Scout Camp in Bristol; the event is an wholly player-led opportunity to trade and interact in-character, several games and contests are held.

The event attracts about 250-300 players. Renewal on the August Bank Holiday weekend at Paccar Scout Camp in Gerrards Cross; the event is promoted as a "catch-all" event with two mass-battles, heavy interaction with plot and non-player characters and extensive opportunities for players to interact with one another. The event attracts about 700-800 players; the May battle event was staged at Bispham Hall Scout Camp in Wigan until 2009, Renewal was staged at Phasels Wood Scout Camp in Hemel Hempstead from 1998 to 2007. Both events were moved following negative customer feedback regarding the sites. Two smaller-scale events entitled Prelude and Aftermath were discontinued after Prelude 2002, due chiefly to rising venue costs. Curious Pastimes classes itself as a "family-friendly" event, allowing parents to bring along children of any age. All children are entitled to full characters, though only those 16 or over are allowed to participate in the mass battles. Curious Pastimes offers formal "sanctioning", allowing affiliated groups to run their own events within the ongoing Renewal storyline.

There are degrees of sanctioning, ranked from ‘Level 1’ to ‘Level 3’. Mandala LRP, a non-profit company founded by some of CP's staff and volunteers, ran several small, ‘Level 3’ sanctioned events from 2004 to 2007; the game's setting is a unique unnamed fantasy world. The world is more or less Earthlike, the known, populated continent that hosts the player characters and their communities is a temperate-to-subarctic landmass broadly equivalent to Eurasia. There are nine intelligent humanoid races in the CP setting: humans, dark elves, four "greenskin" races and a variety of animal-human hybrids collectively known as beastmen. All are more or less evenly-distributed across the world's population, with some variation among the different factions; the known continent is populated by a number of monarchies, nation-states and confederations known as Factions, modelled loosely on various real-world historical communities, with influences from fantasy literature and other sources, as well as original ideas.

The majority of player characters belong to one or other faction, with the exception of a group of non-aligned players collectively labelled "mercenaries." The factions average about 100 in size at Renewal, but are presumed to govern populations in the hundreds of thousands, appropriate to those of equivalent pre-Industrial states. In real-world terms

The Lord of the Rings Online: Mines of Moria

The Lord of the Rings Online: Mines of Moria is the first retail expansion pack for the MMORPG The Lord of the Rings Online released on November 18, 2008. It was announced on March 14, 2008 at Codemasters Online Connect 2008; the storyline is set in an enormous underground complex in north-western Middle-earth. Apart from that, the expansion adds the region Lórien; the game's level cap has been increased to level 60. Other new features include environment aware AI, dynamic lighting, a new weapon enhancement system; the expansion was promoted through playing web-based minigames. Visitors could play three games: King Under the Mountain, Swig & Toss, Eleventy-Seven Morsels at the official site. By performing certain tasks players could complete "deeds", three of which unlocked a "goodie"; these included three pieces of game art. By applying for a beta invitation, players could receive a fourth game art; the expansion adds two new classes to the game: Rune-keeper. As well as these new classes, current classes that were available with the release of The Lord of the Rings Online: Shadows of Angmar were improved with added skills for the additional levels included in the expansion.

Rune-keepers are the closest things to magic-users offered in The Lord of the Rings Online, but they aren't magicians in the traditional sense. Their new Attunement mechanic is represented by a bar with a sliding scale to illustrate whether they're attuned to dealing damage or healing wounds; as a Rune-keeper uses either healing or damaging abilities, the scale slides towards either end of the bar and the Rune-keeper's proficiency in either focus increases. As the Rune-keeper increases focus towards one end of the scale, more of those skills become available in greater power. However, the Rune-keeper will also lose focus on the other end of the scale, making the skills associated with the opposite end unavailable. Therefore, the Rune-keeper can only maneuver either their healing or damage abilities, but not both. Switching between proficiencies requires time; this release of this class was controversial, as Turbine claims to have no use of magic in the Lord of the Rings world, as, in the lore, magic was restricted to the Ainur.

Wardens use spears and wear medium armour, making them neither a tank nor a DPS class specifically. Designed to represent the equivalent of a town sheriff, Wardens are protectors that specialize in combination attacks using their Gambit User Interface; the idea is that a Warden will execute their abilities in certain sequences that culminate in a special attack only available after completing the prescribed set of moves. In practice, the Warden's Gambit UI is an array of two to five squares that slot the abilities as you use them. Once all of the squares have been filled, a new skill will flash at the end of the bar as it becomes available; the new Legendary Item Advancement System is designed to replicate the kind of connection with individual weapons characteristic of the most famous weapons found in Tolkien lore. Bilbo's short sword Sting, Gandalf's Glamdring and Aragorn's Andúril are renowned as superior implements of battle, Turbine wanted to give players a similar sense of ownership over their own hardcore hardware.

To that end, two new NPCs called Forge Masters and Relic Masters were added to assist in the construction and maintenance of a special new class of customizable weapon. These weapons, denoted by gilded borders on their icons, can be forged and re-forged with a variety of abilities and stat boosts and grow in efficacy over time. While Forge Masters are necessary to identify and reforge the legendary weapons and items a character may come across throughout his or her adventures, Relic Masters provide the raw materials for further modifications and can break down existing weapons into their constituent runes. Players can choose to have a Relic Master destroy some of their legendary equipment for components that they can infuse into another, while Forge Masters undo these infusions and increase the item's abilities through successive recastings. Players can name their gear during the reforging process, giving their new gear a specific identity, their legendary equipment gains experience and levels alongside their character, so the more they are used, the more powerful the items will become.

Special drops known as Heritage runes can be applied to legendary gear that will increase the amount of experience points and artificially level them. Between the increased potency through use and the reforging and slotting of stat-boosting runes and gems, the Legendary Item Advancement System has the intended side benefit of eliminating the "loot malaise" that goes along with scoring new gear that may outshine previous hard-won acquisitions. For instance, if a player likes his axe he needn't vendor them just because he found some new axe with better stats, because he can just break down the new axe and add some of its pieces to his old standby. It's not a straight-across stat trade, but it should give his favourite pieces a bit of extra longevity; each class may acquire and equip two items: a class weapon, a class item. The weapon may be any of the common types of weapon available to the class, while the item is a class-specific aid; these Legendary items range in base power by level and the random abilities assigned to them.

Because of this, it is quite possible for, say, a common Third Age weapon at level 60 t

United Nations Command

The United Nations Command is the unified command structure for the multinational military forces, established in 1950, supporting South Korea during and after the Korean War. The United Nations Command and the Chinese-North Korean Command signed the Korean Armistice Agreement on 27 July 1953, ending the heavy fighting; the armistice agreement established the Military Armistice Commission, consisting of representatives of the two signatories, to supervise the implementation of the armistice terms, the Neutral Nations Supervisory Commission to monitor the armistice's restrictions on the parties' reinforcing or rearming themselves. The North Korean-Chinese MAC was replaced by Panmunjom representatives under exclusive North Korean management. Although "MAC" meetings have not occurred since 1994, UN Command representatives engage members of the North Korean People's Army in formal and informal meetings; the most recent formal negotiations on the terms of Armistice occurred in a series of meetings between October and November 2018.

Duty officers from both sides of the Joint Security Area conduct daily communications checks and have the ability to engage face-to-face when the situation demands. United Nations Command operates under the mandates of UN Security Council Resolutions 82, 83, 84. At the time, the fledgling UN had neither the legal precedent nor the practical ability to raise a military force in response to the North Korean'armed attack' against the South; as such, the United Nations exercised no control over the combat forces but, as this represented the international community’s first attempt at collective security under the UN system, UN leadership maintained a close relationship with UN Command during the war and for years after hostilities ceased. When the warring parties signed the Korean Armistice Agreement on July 27, 1953, UNC delivered the Agreement to the United Nations. In August 1953, the UN General Assembly passed a resolution “noting with approval” the Armistice Agreement, a step, critical for the UN to take the next step of organizing the Geneva Conference meant to negotiate a diplomatic peace between North and South Korea.

The adoption of the Korean Armistice Agreement in the General Assembly underwrites UN Command’s current role of maintaining and enforcing the Armistice Agreement. The role of the United States as the executive agent for the unified command has led to questions over its continued validity. Most notably, in 1994, UN Secretary General Boutros Boutros-Ghali wrote in a letter to the North Korean Foreign Minister that: the Security Council did not establish the unified command as a subsidiary organ under its control, but recommended the creation of such a command, specifying that it be under the authority of the United States; therefore the dissolution of the unified command does not fall within the responsibility of any United Nations organ but is a matter within the competence of the Government of the United States. Despite the Boutros Boutros-Ghali letter, the official position from the UN remains that the Korean War-era Security Council and General Assembly resolutions remain in force; this was evidenced in 2013 when North Korea announced unilateral abrogation of the Armistice Agreement: UN spokesman spokesman Martin Nesirky asserted that since the Armistice Agreement had been adopted by the U.

N. General Assembly, no single party could dissolve it unilaterally; the UNC continues to serve as the signatory and party of the Armistice opposite the North Korean People's Army. After troops of North Korea invaded South Korea on June 25, 1950, the United Nations Security Council adopted Resolution 82 calling on North Korea to cease hostilities and withdraw to the 38th parallel. On June 27, 1950, it adopted Resolution 83, recommending that members of the United Nations provide assistance to the Republic of Korea "to repel the armed attack and to restore international peace and security to the area"; the first non-Korean and non-US unit to see combat was No. 77 Squadron, Royal Australian Air Force, which began escort and ground attack sorties from Iwakuni, Japan on 2 July 1950. On 29 June 1950, the New Zealand government ordered two Loch class frigates – Tutira and Pukaki to prepare to make for Korean waters, for the whole of the war, at least two NZ vessels would be on station in the theater.

On 3 July and Pukaki left Devonport Naval Base, Auckland. They joined other Commonwealth forces at Japan, on 2 August. United Nations Security Council Resolution 84, adopted on July 7, 1950, recommended that members providing military forces and other assistance to South Korea "make such forces and other assistance available to a unified command under the United States of America". President Syngman Rhee of the Republic of Korea assigned operational command of ROK ground and air forces to General MacArthur as Commander-in-Chief UN Command in a letter of July 15, 1950: In view of the common military effort of the United Nations on behalf of the Republic of Korea, in which all military forces, land and air, of all the United Nations fighting in or near Korea have been placed under your operational command, in which you have been designated Supreme Commander United Nations Forces, I am happy to assign to you command authority over all land and air forces of the Republic of Korea during the period of the continuation of the present state of hostilities, such command to be exercised either by you or by such military commander or commanders to whom you may delegate the exercise of this authority within Korea or in adjac

2007 All-Ireland Senior Camogie Championship

The 2007 All-Ireland Senior Camogie Championship—known as the Gala All-Ireland Senior Camogie Championship for sponsorship reasons—was the high point of the 2007 season in the sport of camogie. The championship was won by Wexford who defeated Cork by a two-point margin in the final thanks to two first-half goals by ‘player of the match’ Una Leacy; the final attracted a record attendance of 33,154. Six teams competed in the Senior Championship out of twenty-seven who competed overall in the Senior and Junior Championships, they included. Cork, Galway and Wexford secured the semi-final spots. Wexford took revenge for their National Camogie League final defeat with an impressive 4-12 to 0-14 victory over Cork in the opening round at Ballincollig and six goals from Sarah Ryan gave Dublin a winning return to senior level with a 6-7 to 1-7 victory over Kilkenny in Portmarnock. Galway beat Kilkenny 1-12 to 1-4 in the second round. Cork beat Tipperary by 0-11 to 1-8 before Tipperary brought Wexford's unbeaten run to an end by 1-17 to 0-11.

In the semi-finals at Nowlan Park Kilkenny, Wexford defeated Galway 2-18 to 0-14 to secure a place in the final for the first time since 1994. Kate Kelly scored 1-11, her goal coming midway through the opening half after a pass from earlier goalscorer Michelle Hearne. Cork defeated Tipperary 2-11 to 0-9 in what was the fourth championship meeting of the sides that year, with goals from Angela Walsh and Una O'Donoghue giving them a place in the final for the seventh time in eight years; the final was a tale of three goals. Wexford got the better start when Deirdre Codd won possession in the halfback line, cleared a long ball up-field, won on the left wing by Ursula Jacob who passed to Michelle Hearne challenging two Cork defenders; the ball broke inside to Una Leacy, who shot past Cork goalkeeper Aoife Murray to the Hill 16-end net. Una Leacy’s second goal came after 15 minutes. Deirdre Codd won possession at wing-back, her long delivery found Michelle Hearne, who broke the sliotar down and through to the in-rushing Una Leacy.

She gathered, while her first effort was blocked by defender Amanda O'Regan, she kept her composure and hand-passed to the net from the right edge of the square. Wexford's led by five points at half time, 2-2 to 0-3. Cork's goal came in the 37th minute. Sile Burns sent in a high ball, Emer Dillon flicked away the hurl of Wexford cornerback Avis Nolan, before gaining the loose ball and cutting the gap to 2-3 to 1-4 with a goal. Cork cut the margin to a point, Wexford extended it to four, it came back to two before Mags D’Arcy saved the championship when she saved well from an Orla Cotter shot as Cork sought an equalising goal. Una Leacy completed a third goal three minutes into added-time, but her low shot rebounded back off the post. Briege Corkery’s long range point four minutes into injury-time was the last score of the match, bringin Wexford’s final margin of success back to two points, 2-7 to 1-8. Wexford’s winning team was selected by Stellah Sinnott, Alan Aherne, Noel Ryan and Eddie Flynn Wexford’s victory set a record three of sets of mothers and daughters to have won All Ireland medals, Margaret O'Leary was the mother of Mary and Una Leacy, Kit Kehoe was the mother of Áine Codd and Peggie Doyle was the mother of Kate Kelly respectively

Piazza Venezia

Piazza Venezia is the central hub of Rome, Italy, in which several thoroughfares intersect, including the Via dei Fori Imperiali and the Via del Corso. It takes its name from the Palazzo Venezia, built by the Venetian Cardinal, Pietro Barbo alongside the church of Saint Mark, the patron saint of Venice; the Palazzo Venezia served as the embassy of the Republic of Venice in Rome. One side of the Piazza is the site of Italy's Tomb of the Unknown Soldier in the Altare della Patria, part of the Monument to Vittorio Emanuele II, first king of Italy; the piazza or square is at the foot of the Capitoline Hill and next to Trajan's Forum. The main artery, the Via di Fori Imperiali begins there and leads past the Roman Forum to the Colosseum. Capitalizing on this modern and ancient symbolism--and the useful open space--Piazza Venezia was the location of public speeches given by the Italian dictator Mussolini to crowds of his supporters in the 1920s-1940s. In 2009, during excavations in the middle of the square for the construction of the Rome C Metro Line, remains of the emperor Hadrian's Athenaeum were unearthed
