About this Event

Gamesmaster/Host: David Nordquist (MiniWarGamer Dave)

Dates: Monday Sept 9 2019 - Friday Sept 13 2019

Players: 4-5 participants will represent a character in the narrative campaign. They will form a team and will fight cooperatively to battle against the common enemy.

Length: 10 Episodes will be filmed by and with Dave over the course of 5 days.

Cost: a deposit of $197 CAD to reserve your spot in the campaign. The Total cost of registration is $1975 CAD per person + accommodation (varied depending on the themed room you book)

The Campaign Experience: Five days of interactively immersive tabletop war gaming/role-playing with award winning storyteller/filmmaker/gamesmaster David Nordquist (MiniWarGamer Dave), in the mecca of war gaming: the MiniWarGaming Bunker. This is an escape from reality vacation like none you could imagine. It’s an exclusive retreat designed for a small group. This experience will douse you with excitement, relaxation, catered gourmet food, and of course, tabletop miniature war gaming with a unique blend of role-playing and thematic storytelling including survival horror and sci-fi. The Warhammer 40000 8th edition rule set will be used as a baseline for the rules of the campaign with some custom rules added for narrative flavouring. One gamesmaster (Dave) will film and guide players through missions. The players will upgrade and level up their characters throughout the campaign. A unique character sheet will also be provided.

A custom converted miniature will be provided to represent the characters of the campaign. Players are not required to bring any models to participate. However, should they choose to bring their own 40k armies to play on their off time they’re free to do so.

Laptops are encouraged but not required as special messages will be part of the campaign and laptops will open and play them. A laptop will be provided if needed.

Custom cards will be crafted to represent various war gear and weapons found throughout the missions. These cards will be attached to character sheets and stay with the players once found.

Accommodations: Players will be housed on site in one of the MWG Bunker Suites which will greatly add to the immersive experience. Staying at the Bunker is paramount to the overall experience due to the interactivity of the suite itself. In addition to the practical aspect of actually sleeping, the Bunker Suites will serve as quarters for the characters who will receive special instructions in sealed envelopes as well as have interactive exchanges that will affect the outcome of the campaign. Players will then apply the advantages, perks, additional narrative, etc., in the missions to follow.

DISCLAIMER! With exception to the bathrooms in the Bunker Suites all areas including the sleeping quarters will be part of the immersive experience. An NPC may just come knocking in the wee hours of the morning delivering an urgent message. So fair warning has been given. FOR THE LOVE OF EVERYTHING THAT'S GOOD AND DECENT, DO NOT SLEEP NAKED!

NOTE - the following items are provided in the Bunker Suites: bedding, towels, face cloths, hand towels, toilet paper, and hand soap. Guests will need to supply any personal items not mentioned on the list. New towels can be provided upon request.

Catering: 3 delicious gourmet meals a day will be provided. The specifics of the meals will be sorted out by the participants and Josh (our studio manager) prior to arrival. That way, dietary needs can be addressed beforehand and not take away from the precious time the players have while at the Bunker.

FAQs

What is included in the cost of registration?

Your deposit is included in the cost of registration. The registration ($1,975 + Accommodation Fee + applicable taxes) includes thirty five hours of gaming, and all meals, experienced at the MWG Bunker with your Gamesmaster. Since rooms vary in size and luxury, they are booked separately. Leading up to the immersive narrative campaign experience, we will work with you to develop your character and prepare for the game. When you arrive, you will receive a character kit, including swag from our sponsors. There are no hidden fees and no additional costs.

I have allergies/sensitivities or other dietary restrictions. Will there be anything for me to eat?

We can accommodate any and all dietary needs as long as we know about them in advance. Just let us know about them when you register. Options may be limited if we don't know your needs well in advance.

Can I split the cost with friends?

You can share your room with your partner, or with a friend. You will be given an option for that upon checkout, and your invoice will reflect that. Registration itself cannot be split.

Can I stay in a nearby hotel and just come for the day to play?

Only guests that are registered and staying on site are permitted participate in the campaign due to the interactivity of the Bunker Suites.

Can I bring my kids with me?

Children may not attend this event unless they are also scheduled to participate in another event. If they are at least 14 years of age they may participate in our other battle reports as guests or hang out in the tournament hall.

I've never played Warhammer 40k before. Will I still be able to enjoy this?

That's no problem at all. A MiniWarGaming team member will work with you before you arrive (most likely Dave), and hold your hand throughout the retreat. The specific rules of the campaign will be new to everyone, and the GM will be there throughout to guide and assist you. We'll explain everything you need to know and make sure you have a great time even if you've never played before.
