Autocratting An Event
Hints and Tipsfrom Maitresse Anne-Marie d'Ailleurs
It's hard to come up with a short guide to autocratting an event. It's even harder to come up with one that will apply to every branch and autocrat. How we do it in Madrone would be very different than say, Lions Gate, and each type of event has very particular needs and requirements. The Barony of Wastekeep has a great publication on autocratting events and I recommend it highly. It is much bigger than what could be included here. That being said, here are some general tips:
Once your branch has decided they really want to do this event, and you've decided that you really want to be a good autocrat, think back to the last similar event you had a really good time at.
Find the autocrat of that event and pick their brains. Each branch has their own procedure, and each area has their own conventions. Basic sense, good planning and keeping costs down through simplicity and careful shopping will go a long way to ensuring success for your event.Some of Anne-Marie's basic buzzwords:
