The 3rd experiment is scheduled for this Saturday, July 20th, 2013.  This is a role play event set in a fictional country of Atropia and the players can choose to be either American soldiers or citizens of the town of Brentville.  The event takes place approximately 10 years from now after a war in the caucuses region near the Caspian Sea.

The event is open to the public and we have the system set up to accommodate more than 150 simultaneous role players.  The purpose of the role play is to give the users something meaningful to do for the two hours that we monitor the performance of the network and servers while we load them.
