GenCon 2013 FTDM Open Play

 UPDATE (5/8/13): Final details received and posted from GenCon overlords.

An opening volley and a prelude to war, Thursday August 15th at GenCon 2013 will show off a new style of event for Fourthcore Team Deathmatch. BEHOLD! The FTDM Open Play.

The event, inspired by The Tower of Gygax and Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome, will consist of teams of 4 dungeoneers competing in "bear pit" style elimination on the maps listed below. Matches will be shortened to a brief 45 minutes. TWO TEAMS ENTER, ONE TEAM LEAVES!

It is highly recommended that dungeoneers form their teams well ahead of time and develop a coherent strategy towards winning before coming to the event. However, lone wolf dungeoneers are more than welcomed and will be placed in a team ad hoc so as to best fill out all sides and ensure everyone has an ample opportunity at murder. The Dungeon Master is more than happy to help small groups or lone dungeoneers form teams beforehand. Email the Dungeon Masters and they will set you up!

The winning team from each Match will be rewarded with a set of custom FTDM dice and then be allowed to move on to the next Match against a new opponent until they are eliminated. Play will continue in this fashion throughout the night.

This event is entirely a first-come, first-serve affair. Players may bring their own FTDM-legal 1st Level dungeoneers, or use one of the many pregens provided. Don't miss this chance to seize your destiny and bathe yourself in glory! Come alone or with friends, but leave only with honor, glory, and pride.


Date: Thursday August 15th
