TerrorWerks 2008: Incident at Bernelli's World?
TerrorWerks is an immersive live-action simulation in the
science-fiction/horror genre. A team of up to fifteen players, representing
US Space Marines, accompanied by MineraTek executives and engineers, will
enter a 45-minute timed simulation. Players wind their way through a massive,
simulated space station, racing against the clock to prevent their doom.
Along the way they find clues to what happened to the crew, accomplish
skill-based tasks and combat a swarm of alien horrors.
How does the game work?
Players will select one of several basic character types (US Space Marines,
engineers, doctors, executives and synthetics), each with their own sets
of skills and assets. A balanced team is critical to mission success!
After rules, safety briefings and time for the players to
outfit themselves with equipment appropriate to their character, the players
enter the simulation accompanied by a gamemaster in the role of the marine
Players typically have 2-3 skills, associated with their
character type. Some skill-tests are resolved automatically by the players
themselves through the performance of specific tasks or use of equipment
only they possess. Other skills are randomly by the game master.
During the simulation, players will be threatened by a swarm
of mysterious alien horrors. Marines will be equipped with full-automatic
weapons to defend themselves and their team mates. Other character types
may have limited firearms or may have to resort to boffer weapons or their
own reflexes and wits to keep them alive. Teamwork is paramount to survival
and success in TerrorWerks.
When does this happen?
TerrorWerks will be run daily at MegaCon 2008 from Friday to Sunday. Check
the MegaCon website and convention book for specific time slots and how
to reserve your space in the simulation.
I can't wait! I want a piece of the action now!
Want to be prepared and ready to rock & roll? Then you need your field
manual, marine! That's right; pick up your official USSMC FM 7-22, United
States Space Marine Field Manual for Space Boarding Operations today at
your local quartermaster, www.terrorwerks.com now!
Full of tactics every Space Marine should know and the back-story
to TerrorWerks: Incident at Bernelli's World. Bone up on your history
Marine, or you will be doomed to repeat it!
There will be an additional $15 cost for anyone wanting
to participate in this game.
