WittCon V: Alea Iacta Est Shirts: (Click on the Link for a larger image)

The Shirts feature 23 roman pugio-style daggers (11 on each side and one on the shoulder), which is the number of wounds to Julius Caesar that fateful day. The Dates are listed in A.U.C. (Ab Urbe Condita) which is the de-facto Roman Year, which is the number of years since the founding of Roman.
We hope to have some for sale at the Convention, as well as some ready before the convention. We do not know what the price will be yet, because we have not gotten the prices back yet. Check back for more information.

Larry Wick,
Creator of WEGS, the Wickedly Errant Game System

WittCon welcomes back Larry Wickman of GameWick Games. Larry is the author/creator of WEGS 101 Old Skool, a sword-n-sorcery adventure game with a casino game-of-chance twist*. An easy game to play, WEGS harkens back to the day when all you needed to go on an adventure were a few dice, a character sheet, and a willing imagination! WEGS 101 was released this past summer at GenCon (Aug 07). He will be running three WEGS sessions at the con. Larry will also be giving a short seminar of game design and publishing. For more information about WEGS and GameWick Games check out www.GameWick.com.

(*Take it from the Guild's Patriarch - just as in Vegas, your luck and your character's life can all change on one roll!)
