WittCon IX Debriefing
I’m very sorry about missing a week here on the blog. I still intend to post on a weekly schedule. So to make it up to you, I’ll make an extra awesome post!
WittCon IX: The Wrath of Con was the largest convention in recent times that the Wittenberg Role-playing Guild has ever hosted with 103 people!
My Elder Scrolls game went well with everyone there having a great time! I was surprised to have two players who had never played any Elder Scrolls games before, but we were able to get them up to speed enough about the world to get them to enjoy it. There were a whole lot of “arrow in the knee” jokes, culminating with the Bosmer archer doing a double shot and my hit location die showing that he hit the guard in the legs. So the poor guard got not one, but two arrows in the knee!
Urban Arcana: Vegas was a blast both times that I ran it! The players loved the characters (who will be posted in another blog post) and had a lot of fun with the whole concept of D&D in the modern world. The only downside to the game was that it was two short. I scheduled it as part of WittCon’s “one hour one shots” series, but it could easily have been a three hour game. Regardless, everyone had a whole lot of fun and it turned out to be a great adventure!
For the third session, I got to play in a game of Hell on Earth (Classic Edition) and we wound up failing spectacularly. The group completely misread the townspeople’s intentions and intimidated them when they should have been friendly, had a Templar who seriously considered driving an SUV on difficult terrain, despite the fact that he had never done anything close to it, and in the end had our Doomsayer nuke anything and everything in a five mile radius. In the end, we all had a lot of fun, even if we were the worst posse ever!
And now, for a bunch of pictures (click for larger images)!
