Clear your calendar. April 1-3, 2011. AdeptiCon online pre-registration is live!
On it’s own, that’s heady, shiver-inducing news… but made all the more delicious with the addition of this simple truth: Special Operations: Killzone is going to be making a formidable appearance at AdeptiCon in 2011.
You heard me. We will be hosting three individual events at AdeptiCon this coming year. That’s a big bite for such a small game.
As you will likely know, Special Operations: Killzone is a narrative-driven dynamic grounded in Warhammer 40K’s Kill Teams (although a Beta-ruleset is currently available on Galaxy in Flames, a finalized version of the Special Operations: Killzone sourcebook to 40K will be on offer for free download well in advance of the event). As mentioned, there will be three events on the weekend with allotments for 24 players in each event, and you, the gentle reader, will play at least four games in any given session (perhaps more if time allows).
Each participant will bring one Special Operations Team of any standard 40K race. The Team must not exceed 250 points, and up to 25 of those points may be allotted for Specialized Skills and Abilities (note: Special Issue Wargear is not included in the Skills and Abilities points limitation, but operates under different limitations outlined in the basic Special Operations Killzone sourcebook). Your team will engage in a bitter series of linked narrative-driven missions across the entire breadth of four custom-made tables for this event.
Here’s the schedule with links to the registration page.
Friday: 12:00 – 5:00 pm.
Friday: 7:00 – 12:00 am.
Sunday: 11:30 – 4:30 pm.
Naturally, you are invited to register for more than just one event if the spirit so moves you.
Now. Maths are not my strongest suite, but let’s take another look at those numbers. 3 events. 24 players/teams per event. That’s 72 slots and 282+ games across 15 hours of pure Killzone glory, unbridled mayhem, and a myriad of foes.
That’s a lot of Killzone. Prepare yourself.
