Come Live the Adventure at Origins 2005
June 16, 2005
NERO will be attending the Origins International Game Expo in Columbus, Ohio.
NERO will be presenting several exciting events...
White Plains, NY - The Kingdoms of Avalon are restless with visions and dreams.
Diviners, seers, and augurs look up from their pools and prophetic flames with a
look of panic on their faces. The final plague is coming… You, like many other
adventurers, are here to lend your knowledge, crafts, skills, arms, and possibly
your life to stop the coming plague. We now know that there is a force behind
the plague, a force which intends to win the final battle. Can you stand against
such a force?
Members of NERO® International will stand together! NERO is pleased to announce
its attendance at the Origins International Game Expo put on by the Game
Manufacturers Association (GAMA) from June 29 to July 2, 2005 in Columbus, Ohio.
The Grand Ballroom of the Hyatt Regency Hotel will be transformed into the world
of Avalon where new and experienced players alike converge on the Kingdom of
Avalon. NERO will be presenting numerous events during the Expo, beginning
Thursday, June 30th at 10 a.m. All NERO events presented begin at 10 a.m. each
day and continue until 10 p.m. through July 2nd.
Attendees will encounter Medieval-Style Live Adventures, in which players must
decipher hints and clues, defeat mythological beasts and more. In addition to
Live Adventures, NERO offers Expo participants a wonderful new experience, The
Interactive Tavern. As well as taking part in intense Live Adventures, all
attendees can relax, chat, and/or trade wares with others, swap stories, enjoy
games, compare treasures, read Realms of Fantasy Magazine, construct or repair
armor and weapons, eat delicious food, and of course meet new people!
However, the Expos most exciting event, brought to you by NERO, revolves around
an entire weekend of sword fighting. Live Action Role Players go head-to-head
with NERO Sword Fighting Champions in the Champion Challenge. Show up any time
for your place in the Spontaneous Combat (thirty-two 32 person) tournaments
which are mini-tournaments held every hour. For the more advanced Sword Fighters
there is the “Field of Honor”, featuring small-group tournaments for tougher
competitions. Finally, NERO presents the Grand Boffer Tournament with 1024
participants, which will have 32 tournaments with 32 challengers, all leading up
to a stunning final showdown tournament on Saturday Afternoon.
For all tournaments a brief orientation is provided, as well as a short practice
session for safety reasons. Practice rings will be available in the Interactive
Tavern and in the Sword Fight Tournament room. All winners will be awarded
prizes generously sponsored by Game Companies like Mongoose Publishing, Edhellen
Armory, Knighthawk Armoury, and Sovereign Media. As a special bonus, NERO will
donate $0.75 of each ticket from this tournament to the “Make-A-Wish” Foundation
of Central Ohio. Watch the donation chart increase each hour of the Expo.
