40K NARRATIVE

Introducing Yet Another New & Innovative

NOVA Open Gaming Event for 2012:

The DC Narrative!

UPCOMING STAFF

EVENTS

The Warhammer 40,000 Narrative Event will bring

attendees into a unique, immersive gaming experience

custom-tailored to each attendee's style of enjoying the

hobby.

Beginning the night of Thursday, August 30, players will

be deployed by celebrity commanders to battle against

each other as a member of one of two factions -

Washington, DC Defenders and Attackers.

Instead of participating in a story driven by the

Warhammer 40,000 universe, where every army in the

game is mysteriously and fortuitously present at one

time, participants in the NOVA Open's Narrative Event

will be using their Codex and army of choice to drive a

story surrounding an extraterrestrial invasion of a future

Earth.

SATURDAY, 1/7:

10-11 STAFF MEETING

11-3 TABLES: FELTING

(Bring staple guns/staples)

SATURDAY, 1/14:

10-3 FINISH TABLES?

BEGIN TERRAIN BUILDS

(Bring staple guns/staples)

SATURDAY, 1/14:

10-7 TERRAIN BUILD

(Watch for Emails re Bringing

Building Supplies)

The NOVA Open staff of volunteers is hard at work

building many of Washington, DC's iconic monuments

and memorials in miniature replica. Participants in the

Narrative will not only battle it out against their peers

with everything from standard 40K armies to

Forgeworld/Imperial Armor, they'll be doing it amidst a

recreation of our nation's capital!

The story begun at this year's event will be influenced

in the future by the stand-out achievements of our

participants. Player-named characters and

commanders who distinguish themselves may show up

in the ongoing story inaugurated in 2012. Monuments

honoring particularly accomplished characters may

appear on the battlefields of future NOVA Open

Narrative Events.

The Narrative is scheduled for Thursday, Friday and

Saturday evenings, beginning at 7:30pm. Players will

Minister of Terrain

participate in battles to earn points for their faction. The

story branch each day is flexible and dependent on

which faction wins the prior evening. Prior to game

start, and following the day's primary tournament

action, our celebrity commanders will brief players on

the development of the story to that point.

Friends and Family and Washington, DC

During the day of Saturday, September 1, narrative

participants NOT playing in the Warhammer 40,000 GT

~ as well as spouses/family/friends of participants who

ARE playing ~ will have the opportunity to participate in

a photographic scavenger hunt across Washington, DC

in pursuit of additional points for the player's faction.

This hunt will include riddles and hints that lead players

to specific photo ops throughout the capital . . . and

provide players/family members with a self-guided

Metro tour of DC's best and most iconic locations.

Check our website at novaopen.com throughout

January for more Narrative Event information!
