Last year was my first bash at creating, situating, running, and otherwise plunging headfirst into the demanding world of event organization.
I learned a lot.
I did not, however, learn enough to prevent me from jumping once more the deep end …and so I have. As many of you will know by now, things don’t get done in halves round here. So, as you ogle an assortment of photos from last year, I present you with a modest list of what you can expect from Special Operations: Killzone at AdpetiCon 2012:
-a newly revised and updated Special Operations: Killzone Rules. These revisions and updates improve on the basis of the Killzone dynamic, but also account for the extremely modest hiccups we encountered during our maiden endeavor last year, as well as bring all the new codexes into the fold. The revised ruleset will be available quite soon (for free download) and include revisions to: wargear, skills, overwatch, team selection, themes, deployment, mission points, victory conditions, and much, much more. We have worked very hard to hone the dynamic, and I am quite proud of where we are.
-an entirely new card system that includes deployment options, primary missions, secondary missions, and the wildly cinematic fate dynamic.
-10 (yes ten) brand new 3’x3’ custom tables. These are going to make last year’s effort look pedestrian by comparison. Again, Tall Paul and I have learned a tremendous amount about basic construction techniques and design. Moreover, Vlad and Joe are going to be on hand from a much earlier moment to make sure that every ounce of our ambition is realized on the table top. That means 30 feet of contiguous playing space at a heretofore unrealized level of awesome. Dare I say it… glorious.
-each entrant will fight at minimum of 4 missions.
-each mission will be 1v1 (as opposed to the ad hoc Special Operations groups necessitated by the limited spaces last year), and will feature a unique tactical, strategic opportunity to reduce the opposing Special Operations Group to dithering plebbishness (not an actual word).
-so. much. more.
AdpetiCon registration is up and running. Slots are filling up at an astonishing rate (faster, in fact, than you can say “wow, that was fast.” Just ask Joe). You have exactly three opportunities to participate in Killzone Glory: the sequel. Here are the times and links you need to make it so:
It’s all happening once more. I am already nearly giddy with excitement.
You will be hearing a great deal more about this as the weeks turn to months turn to AdpetiCon.
