More Information about the sessions:

    GMs interested in running a game:
  • Please e-mail the following information to rpguild-con (at) wittenberg.edu
  • 1. Your first name and last initial
  • 2. The Game System you are running
  • 3. A title for the game
  • 4. How many players you are willing to have in your game
  • 5. A short sentence or two outling the game
  • 6. What session you would prefer to run a game
  • If you plan on GMing a game be sure to have pre-generated characters on hand for the players, so you don't take up all that time generating the characters during your session. If there are special requirements for your game please let me know as well, and we'll post that along with the game summary.
  • Be Aware that we can have more games than there are sessions, since we have tables in the atrium for games as well as the ability to setup tables in 105. So don't fret too much if you do see that the session you wanted is already taken.

Session A: 1:00pm to 4:00pm
    Cos Arena
  • GM: Sarah H. +1
  • System: Live Action
  • Slots: Up to 4-5 at a time
  • Session: Shouvlin Center 105 1:00pm to 4:00pm
  • Takes up along the lines of Final Fantasy Gaming. It will be three vs three, Two being the GMs. It's a short mock battle, where a person can attack, summon, or run. Attacking would mean NO PHYSICAL contact but pretend to hit of some sort and weapons approved by GM and Con rules. Summoning would be approved by Gm, which another person could jump in and do a special attack, running would be lose/retreat with the audience at a safe distance.

You see, one by one her family is being consumed by an accursed fiery death invoked on them by the treacherous Goblin mage Spitrakk. Though he and his tower were destroyed over ten years ago, the curse somehow lives on! The Chieftainess suspects that the answer lies somewhere in those ruins. Yes, you will be well-provided for and, yes, you will have her personal guard escort you all the way to the foot of the ruins - but from then on you are on your own. You ARE her only hope - just like the last group she sent out... This is the WEGS-WittCon grand finale where we go full throttle and try to shatter this system any way we can!
