Dress for The Blood Games
WELCOME TO THE BLOOD GAMES
19 years later: self-appointed leader of the wasteland Magnus has decided to make his darlings fight for a place on his private paradise, Last Haven. It’s his inaugural Blood Games.
Will the Sun Hunters, Warhawks or Crimson Convoy be the last faction standing after the 3 rounds, and who will secure places in Last Haven? Each faction has a separate set of skills that could help you outlast the virus. Remember: it’s up to you how much or how little you dress to the theme, though there are some great prizes available for best survivor and zombie outfits!
Red: The Crimson Convoy
The hollering of the Crimson Convoy is the only sound more menacing than a zombie’s screech. A group of nomadic, battle-hardened bandits, the Convoy have earned a reputation for two things: looting and bloodlust. With the biggest guns and biggest egos, the outlaws roll through the post-apocalyptic wasteland under the guidance of their gunslinger leader, Billy Blaze.
Inspirations: Bushrangers, Red Dead Redemption
Yellow: The Sun-Hunters
Tech-savvy, armed and eccentric, the Sun-Hunters are a force to be reckoned with. After harnessing solar energy to create their own power supply, these sadistic engineers often reward themselves by spending an evening watching zombies fry in their electric fence grid. Masters of explosives and disruption.
Inspirations: Steampunk, Breaking Bad
Blue: The Warhawks
Perched high in the mountain ranges, their fortified base – The Eyrie – has never fallen. The Warhawks are experts with bows, and masters of camouflage. Patient and proud, the Warhawks will do anything for their galvanising leader, The Hawk. If you hear their bird call, it is rumoured to be the last thing you’ll ever hear.
Inspirations: The Night’s Watch, middle-Earth Elves
FACTIONS & SIGILS
We have prizes for the best survivor and zombie costumes this year. We’ll be giving them away just before and right after the game respectively – so if cosplay’s your thing, make sure you show us what you’ve got!
As we share our space with lots of bystanders please don’t dress in a way that would intimidate passersby – no full tactical outfits, no paintball masks, no full-camo or all-in-black outfits.
