    You will not be seeing me. I have the power to become completely inconspicuous at will. I have had teachers at school forget that I was there, even when I was in my assigned desk the whole time.

    @MarsChelios

    I have a several questions for you good sir, if you have time to answer them. :)
    The large 5-letter code above the symbol is your Badge Code. It’s used to link your kit to your account on http://www.phenixone.com and for scoring purposes in the Primary and Secondary Tiers of gameplay.

    So, this means that before I can wear the armband, be "killed", or "kill" anyone I have to add My Badge Code to my account?

    Also,
    Safe Zones
    Certain areas are considered off-limits for attacking other Assassins players. When a player is in one of these areas they cannot be eliminated. Below is a list of the safe zones in Assassins:
      • Keynotes and Panels • Concerts • BYOC and PC Freeplay Areas • Hotel Rooms • Convention Tournaments
    Safe Zones exist so you can enjoy activities at the convention, not as a means to avoid being killed. Using the safe zones in this way will be considered cheating and appropriate action will be taken.

    Since Hotel Rooms are on the Safe Zone List does that mean you can still "kill" people (or be "killed") if you are on the sidewalk or eating out at a restaurant or going to the bathroom (giving/receiving a death card after washing hands of course :wink:)?

    Is there a specific time when the game starts & ends? Basically, does it start at 10:00am on Friday & end at 7:00pm on Sunday? Or is it included during Pre/Post PAX events?

    Sorry for the crazy questions. I just need some clarification.

    Thanks. :)

    That's a good question, I don't think I've talked about that this year. Registering your badge with your PhenixOne account is primarily for scoring purposes and tracking how many people are playing, it doesn't activate the badge or anything. If you have a kit, you can play without ever registering it.

    We do encourage people to register. The scoring data lets us see how well the game is balanced and helps us make adjustments for upcoming games.

    You can assassinate someone outside of the convention, but as always try not to be disruptive of someone elses activities (Not that I think you would, just reiterating for consistency). I'm going to add bathrooms to the safe zone list, but washing your hands is also very important. Like Recycling. :lol:

    The game starts at 8:00 AM on Friday and runs until 7:00 PM Sunday.

    The new target overrides your old one. You will only ever have one shape as your target at any time.

    I did a bit more reading, and just bought a couple kits.
    How will we know who/where to pick them up from?

    I think that all depends on if the UAA is real or imagined doesn't it?

    Edit: We're up to 88 players now! If you're interested in playing let me know and I can send you information on how to get in touch with me. Kits can still be purchased online here or you can just contact me and pay when you get them.

    We've hit 90 kits being sold, so I wanted to give an update on kits. I only originally bought 100 armband badge holders for the game since I wasn't sure about how many people would be playing. For those who suck at math this means out of that set only 10 kits are left for purchase.

    I've ordered 30 more badge holders as well as a few larger armband badge holders, but there's some chance I won't receive them before I leave; in which case those remaining 10 kits will be all that's left. If you're on the fence about playing or plan on paying at the show, you may want to reconsider and reserve a kit online now.

    I'll update if the extra order comes in Monday or Tuesday or should we sell out before then. I had hoped but never expected we would reach this number of players this year, you guys totally surprised me and I want to thank you so much for playing.

    Edit: Updated the rules with information on how to register Assassinations (Primary Tier) and Gathering Intel (Secondary Tier). Pretty straightforward I think, but let me know if you have any questions.

    Yes, we'll have replacements for anyone whose shipped kits took a detour. Maybe someone got a little overzealous and took out the kit before it reached you.

    Just heard about this. Kit ordered. I have to check my closet for old Blizzard schwag to see if I have anything worth looting. May have some employee only stuff from when I worked there, if not I'll just bring some old rare magic cards or something.

    Also, looks like I won't have time to make a figurine as booty, so I'll be grabbing a box of candy instead. Everyone likes candy... right!?

    Looks like your praying did the trick. Got the armbands today. I kinda saw your symbol and target cuz they weren't individually wrapped, but we don't have each other as targets so that works out ok :P I'll give to you at Wings tomorrow night.

    I have just ordered a kit for me and my girlfriend who will both be attending all 3 days of PAX. We would like to meet up to pick up our assasin gear either before the Triwizard Drinking Tournament (which I think everyone is meeting at the pre-dinner) or at the Pre-Pax Breakfast the following morning.

    Not a problem. Get up with me and I'll get it to you.

    I've turned off the online purchasing for kits now, in part because I know there are a lot of people who plan on purchasing kits at the dinner/breakfast. If you're interested in purchasing a kit, you can put in your email here and get information on how to contact me for kits. You can also PM on here as well.
