Doomtown Twilight Protocol Series
Act III: The Twilight Legion
With the rise of the Cackler, all has seemed lost. Brave souls from across the Weird West have started learning the truth behind the secret “Reckoning.” In the North, the government fights evil through the shadowy “Agency.” The South gave this task to the Texas Rangers; wherever the Reckoners took hold, they would follow. These two organizations did not work together until the Twilight Protocol was invoked, yet there is another, ‘neutral’ third party whose only interest is the survival of humanity – the Twilight Legion.
Players attending this 2019 Destination Event follow choices made at Chupacabracon and Genghiscon in Part I and II of this Series. The exciting conclusion will take place in none other than the Town Too Tough to Die this October.
We invite you to join Pine Box Entertainment and Pinnacle Entertainment group for a weekend of Doomtown and tourism. Welcoming players new and old, the promotional cards provided in earlier round-ups from this Series will receive a special background and mon as we also introduce two additional promos specific to this round-up as well as additional participation and promotional support just for attending, including faction outfit foils, Legend foils, Top 8 mats, a Badge for the main event, and additional prizes for side events! All side events are free and there will be a nominal entry fee for the Main Event.

List item Twilight Protocol Act III Fiction Event @8pm: During the evening side event (see below), the Saving Throw WildCards crew will be presenting the fiction of the final act of the Twilight Protocol Series through a live Deadlands session!
• Twilight Is Upon Us @8pm: Staying at the American Legion and following the rounds of swiss from the main round-up, players can participate in the alternate format for Doomtown and enjoy the final act of fiction being presented for the Twilight Protocol Series trilogy, revealing a major event that occurs in the world of Deadlands. Details for the event are as follows: After the Deadlands events that occurred in The Cackler, the skies seem a little darker, the vast prairies a little lonelier, the distances between burgs a little longer and more dangerous. It’s almost as if a permanent twilight has fallen…Practitioners of black magic find it a little easier to summon their powers. In Doomtown game terms, all Hexes are cast at 1 less cost. Blessed get hit the hardest by the metaphysical dusk. Where once the powers of light bestowed miracles like rock candy, now they’ve been forced to retreat somewhat. By necessity they’ve become selective, doling out arcane help to their chosen with less regularity and variety than they did in the past. In Doomtown game terms, all Blessed who fail a Miracle pull are then booted. The choice is yours. Any player with a deck containing three or more Fearmongers and/or 1 cost hexes, or a Servitor will be playing for the side of the Reckoners, while all other decks will be on the side of the Heroes of the Weird West. Players matchups will help influence the finale of the Twilight Protocol Trilogy, as told by the results of the cut round on Sunday.
Sunday, October 27, 2019: The Duel
• The Top 8 Face off in elimination rounds @10am at the American Legion. The votes regarding the Clanton Ranch conflict will continue and the winner will decide a relevant figure that will stay to defend or terrorize Tombstone in the ongoing Deadlands/Doomtown universe!

• Fear Level Variant Event: During the elimination rounds, players may participate in this experimental alternate format, the details of which will be revealed at the event. Gameplay will have a surprise element only to be revealed as players register for the main round-up the day prior.
