Q0001: "Breach! A Flarrowverse LARP" by Sacred Grounds Gaming, Inc.. In a pocket dimension between space and time, heroes, scientists, and experts from various worlds give up their lives at STAR Labs, ARGUS, the Time Masters, or an exceptional career elsewhere to be a part of the Reality Monitoring Project (RMP). Welcome to "The Beach House", a reality station on the edge of space and time made up of collapsing pieces of other universes, salvaged for the purpose of keeping the expanding multiverse in check. This isn't just a superhero game, it's a game of making choices that affect many lives while trying to deal with the ramifications of living a life completely disconnected from one's old universe...if it even still exists. Play a scientist, an engineer, a low-powered meta, a time traveler, or even the doppelganger of a canon DC character from another Earth (that isn't quite the same, of course), and hop on the station. Here's hoping there are no breaches. Sacred Grounds Gaming presents Breach! - a game set in the Berlanti/Kresiberg DC television universe (with some liberties taken with the canon). Contact firstname.lastname@example.org to work with us to create a character, or let us know of your intent to play a completely premade character. Please note: If you are willing to cosplay a particular DC character, we may be willing to let you play a (lower powered) version of them from another Earth. Thursday, 6:00PM - 12:00AM; One Round; All Materials Provided. Beginners Welcome; Fun, 18 & Over ONLY.
Q0002: Battlestar Galactica; "Tales of the Rising Star: Wisdom Lights Our Way" by Phoenix Outlaw Productions & Eleventh Hour Productions. A DEXCON 19 EXCLUSIVE! Only mere days since the Twelve Colonies fell and the medical vessel Rising Star has already survived horrors untold. Disease, deprivation, and Cylon attacks have battered this renegade ship, which houses a rebel government, a trove of experimental technology, and a freighter's worth of refugees and military personnel. Now, after a hellish few days, the ship has finally run out of luck and jumped directly into the line of a Cylon Basestar ship. But all is not lost, for a single signal out in the darkness of space may guide the way to safety, and perhaps a new home. Up to 75 players will take on the role of colonial survivors and military in the Battlestar Galactica universe and face the Cylon threat in this highly freeform game; what you see is what you get - interact with computers, engines, and science problems hands on. Players should have a fair knowledge of the (modern) BSG television series and come with previous LARP experience. Players from previous Double Exposure events can continue playing their characters, but new character creation can be done before game either by emailing the game designers at BSGRisingStar@gmail.com or at event L0007: The LARP Bazaar (Wednesday Night at 10:00PM).

L0010: Cthulhu Live! 3.5; "A Thing Came to Birch Street" by PST Productions. A DEXCON 19 EXCLUSIVE! A Neighborhood in Massachusetts, December 2nd, 1997 - 21 little ranch-style, 1950s kit-houses line the neat little circular road just outside of town that comprises the Birch Street Community. The neighbors regularly meet in the grassy park created naturally by the layout of their street, having family barbecues and major events there through most of their lives. Many of the families have lived there for two or three generations, and the few newer additions came over a decade ago to raise their children in this wonderful, friendly community. That was until someone discovered that the Smiths had been ritualistically murdered in the center of the park; their bodies arranged in a strange formation, the earth beneath them cracked and shifted; the power lines melted; power transformers destroyed leading back into town; and police and FBI everywhere asking questions. It was only a few days after Thanksgiving, and three families have already listed their houses for sale. The investigation has complicated the efforts of the community to heal from this terrible event and mourn their neighbors. It is the afternoon after the funeral for the Smith Family, and the community is meeting in the gazebo at the park with some of the investigators to clear suspicions and air grievances. We will be casting Families and Investigative teams, so if you want a set of characters, get your friends in agreement and send your email with a list of emails for the characters and specify your preferences for Family/Investigators.

L0016: "Emerald City Beat" presented by Warren Morrison. The city of Seattle has weathered turbulent times in the supernatural community better than most. Many decades earlier the Red Court Vampires made agreements with powerful groups in each of Seattle's neighborhoods to control the major Ley Lines for political and financial support. Hence during the war between the Red Court Vampires and Wardens, the Wardens were stretched too thin to antagonize multiple Accorded Supernatural communities to attack their strongholds in the city. When the Wardens destroyed every living Red Court vampire and Thrall by turning one of their own rituals on them, these groups were already in place to easily take over the vacated places of power, leaving the power dynamic of the city mostly unchanged. There was of course some jockeying for position and violence but significantly less than most cities (especially New York & Chicago), and no outside groups were able to force themselves in on a large scale. Recently however a new Lake Union island has risen, larger than all the previous and shifted the Ley Lines for the entire city. With everyone scrambling to secure their newly acquired Ley Lines or reclaim those "taken" from them, tension has risen in the city. In an effort to prevent bloodshed in the streets, the major players in the city have put out a call to everyone who has claimed or lost a Ley Line to convene in Seattle's Samhill Stonehenge and move to the new island if necessary. Friday, 2:00PM - 6:00PM; One Round; All Materials Provided. Beginners Welcome; Serious, Under 18 Requires Parental Clearance.

Once such place is aboard the Rylothian Sunset, an old star cruiser where, for the price of a ticket, deals are struck that are limited only by the accounts and imaginations of the interested parties.

L0036: Mind's Eye Theater; "Prince of Old Nassau (Subject to Change)" by By Night Studios; presented by Robert Recckia & Colin Cherry. In a World of Darkness, where vampire masters rule from the shadows, bloodthirsty monsters pretend to a polite society. The polite society of the Domain of Old Nassau gathers once again, this time to celebrate the 700th anniversary of the embrace of its current Prince, Elder Vincento Armando de Pallazo de Venice. Yet this celebration comes at a time when there is little reason to celebrate. Werewolves wage open war among themselves on the streets and in the parks of central New Jersey with no concern for the Kindred interests, or even Kindred themselves, that are destroyed in the process. The Setite-Giovanni Alliance of Trenton encroaches on the western border with Clan Tremere leading the stand against the necromancers' ambitions. All the while, whispers of a Sabbat threat leave the residents of Old Nassau casting nervous glances over their shoulders. How will these threats be contained? Will Prince Vincento hold the city longer than his predecessors? And most importantly, why have all of these concerns come to a head now? All that is known is that these problems arose after the incidents at the Firestone Library this past February...
