We allow you to select second and third choices for a given time slot; indicate this clearly in whatever fashion you'd like, otherwise we will just leave that slot open. And of course, since the grids are not yet posted, we understand that you may want to reserve spots in one or two popular events immediately and then send follow-up eMails with additional codes once you figure out how to plan the rest of your convention schedule.
If you have already sent in a list of events from the Signature Event and LARP Schedule that was posted on May 18th, those events are already reserved, and you do NOT need to add them again. If you want to UN-reserve a spot in one of those events, just be clear about it in your email, and we will delete you appropriately. Each time you send more information, we will send you back your up-to-date schedule.
We will reply within 48 hours with a confirmation that your reservations were received. If you do NOT get a confirmation, assume that your codes are NOT received and try again. Note that you MUST include a valid eMail reply-to address for us to reach you to confirm!

Q0001: The $1,000 Team Space Marine Championship. Bring your team, or join one on site. Up to eight teams of five players each will take part in a tense, vicious tournament of strategy and guts! Each team consists of a Captain, who uses a bolter and a power melee weapon, three regular squad members with bolters, and a Marine with a heavy weapon. Randomly allocated rounds will be run by normal Warhammer 40,000 squad rules, with one side representing Space Marines and the other side Chaos Space Marines. A team wins by decimating the other side! The battlefield will be randomly set with full-scale scenery for each round, and actual line-of-sight will be used for each decision. The Captain must lead his team to fight cooperatively and intelligently every step of the way. The four teams with the best record will move on to the final rounds, and the winning team will receive $1,000 in CASH ($200 per player). SPECIAL NOTE: Double Exposure reserves the right to revoke the cash prize if participation falls below 30 players. Thursday, 6:00PM - 12:00AM; One Session; All Materials Provided. Beginners Welcome; Fun, All Ages.
Q0002: The $5,000 Interactive Puzzle Challenge. Thirty players will enter a huge room on Friday morning. The room will be filled with items, art, games, sounds, music, letters, numbers and all sorts of strange clues. The door will lock behind them - if anyone leaves, they cannot re-enter and they are removed from the event. The players then have five hours to make sense of the chaos and find the FINAL ANSWER that will win the jackpot. The players can work independently, or together (either in separate groups or as a whole community). They can work at whatever pace they'd like - but time runs against them. A five-hour countdown timer ticks continuously, and each hour that passes lowers the jackpot by $1,000. If the FINAL ANSWER remains hidden when time expires, the game is over. Each player starts with 100 credits and a Clue Envelope. During the game, the players can trade credits for information or help, or just about anything. The Clue Envelope is worth 100 credits, but ONLY if it remains sealed. Each player must decide whether to preserve their Clue Envelope, open it, or trade it. If the FINAL ANSWER is discovered, the player who finds it earns 6,000 credits. The jackpot will then be distributed among all the players based on percentage of credits - in CASH. Friday, 12:00PM - 6:00PM; One Session; All Materials Provided. Beginners Welcome; Serious, All Ages.

L0036: Oblivion; "Escape from Facility E4" by Immortal Unbound LLC. "The blasted landscape of a forlorn Earth would be a welcome reality. The true world is far more malevolent. Life can be measured in sin. Death is one of the few desirable fates when faced with a multitude of hellish torments: choking on the viscous spore of a N'jaa Brood Tyrant, rising from the necrotic ravagings of a Scab swarm, facing down the deathless visage of a Blackguard technological terror... what can one do in the wake of these terrible abominations? That is my profound question. The answer, I've found, is not to seek their destruction. It is not to rush headlong into the fray of battle. It isn't to bow before them. The answer is control. Completely and utterly... and now... now I can say that these are just a few of the things I control in my world. The hypotheses have been prosed. Now it's time to experiment... and I need a fresh batch of test subjects..." - Professor Stephen Cole. You're a trained survivor. As fate would have it, you have stumbled upon the infamous Vanguard - a freedom fighting force against everything and anything that threatens the sanctity of the Quarantine Zone.

Escape from your prisons, explore countless halls and laboratory rooms, face down the world's most fearsome foes, and surpass the tests of your mettle. What are you willing to do to survive?
