Helpful tips:
  • 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 that time generating the characters during your session. If there are special requirements for your game please let us 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 the ability to set up tables in 105. So don't fret too much if you do see that the session you wanted is already taken.

Costume Contest

We will be hosting a costume contest throughout the convention with prizes for the best costumes. When you register, please let us know that you wish to participate in the contest. Convention participants will vote on the best costumes during dinner.

Costume Contest Rules
  1. Due to University regulations, NO weapons are allowed on the premises!
    Prop weapons must be clearly prop and non-functional.
  2. Because we may have children present at the convention, all costumes must be in good taste and sufficiently modest.
  3. We reserve the right to ask individuals to leave WittCon, or change their attire, if their costumes violate these rules, or is considered in appropriate for our convention.
  4. All Costume entries for the Costume contest must be entered by 2:30pm at the latest.
  5. We take pictures of the Costume Contest entries for display on the various displays around the convention so all people can see them. The pictures are also posted on our web-page as well, usually sometime after the covention.
  6. We ask that you wear your costume for at least the first session and through the second session into the Pizza Dinner. After that if it is comfortable for you to wear it please feel free to do so for the third session as well.
  7. Voting on the Costume Contest is done by the attendees of WittCon at the beginning of the Pizza Dinner. In fact they have to vote in order to get some pizza. After the votes are tallied, we will announce the winners during the Pizza Dinner.
