What Is Blackline?
Blackline is an immersive roleplaying experience. You take on the role of intelligence officers and tactical teams as they work to uncover and eliminate threats around the province.
We've been creating an alternate reality full of spies and clandestine activities since 2016. Taking elements from real-life espionage stories and special operations actions, we blend them with familiar gameplay mechanics and cinematic drama to create a unique, one of a kind experience.
It's as if Jason Bourne and Tom Clancy had an escape room baby.
Why Was Blackline Created?
We were tired of participating in events that didn't focus on realism, or those that penalized people who wanted to spend time planning, use real tactics, practice real skills, or use equipment in an authentic way.
We wanted real consequences for our actions. We wanted failure to be a real possible outcome.
At Blackline you can expect a blend between reality and event that is as seamless as we can make it. Intelligence is real, the OPFOR is everywhere, and your ability to perform will make a real difference to the outcome of the event.
The Three Principles
All Blackline events use three guiding principles to ensure we deliver the best possible experience for participants.
Priority number one. No one wants to be injured. All our activities undergo a rigorous risk assessment and we equip players to stop any unsafe activity they see.
Respect for the venues we use, and the people we interact with is critical. With the flexibility to take
3. Spirit of the Game
It's simple. Don't use safety or respect to gain an advantage in the event. Some great examples are to not ask for restraints to be removed then try to escape. Or, don't hide critical intelligence behind your eye protection. This also extends to not 'gaming' the scenario.
