    3 life assassin scenario that runs over two days.

    Persons will be asked when paying gate if they would like to participate as an assassin or a mark. Assassins will be issued 3x life tokens an assassin’s license card. Marks will fill out a short information card x2 “Title, Name, company/house” and be given a bounty based on title along with a numbered ribbon to wear.

    It will be possible for someone to raise the bounty on a person by donating money to do so at the Gate or the Concessions & Treachery stand. Several random drawings will also raise some bounties for added fun.

    Marks have a two life scenario, and will relinquish their unique Mark ribbon to their assassinator if they are assassinated. Marks can only be killed once by the same assassin. Mark ribbons are not transferrable. So if an assassin carrying a mark ribbon dies, they do not lose their mark kill. They are required to turn it in immediately though.

    Winner will be the assassin that has collected the most in mark bounties. Announced and awarded a prize at 9pm Saturday at the Concessions and Treachery stand.
