Gary Con XII | Old Skool Fantasy Awaits!

January 25th, 2020
Conventions, Gary Con, GameWick News

Here’s a list of the events I am running at Gary Con XII (2020). It’s a mix of WEGS Old Skool Fantasy rpg adventures and a couple of special Shuffling Horror events. Blurbs for all events found below.

For dungeoncrawl fans, BOSS, the Basic Old Skool System, is akin to Basic D&D and designed for over-the-top fantasy adventure. All BOSS events are intro sessions and start with a quick character creation (link below to our character creation pdf guide). For horror gaming fans, there’s an Innsmouth 32 session (summer 2020 release) and a playtest of Cannibal Creeps (future expansion for Pittsburgh 68).

WEGS Old Skool Event Blurbs

Elf. Dwarf. Magic-User. Thief. (BOSS)

Full-throttle dungeon fun with the BOSS (Basic Old Skool System). The BOSS pays homage to Holmes Edition style adventure. We start by rolling up characters and then heroically set forth to the dungeon! Honed for simple, fast-paced play, the BOSS rules are a bare bones version of WEGS Old Skool Fantasy RPG. Great system intro. No XP required. Pig-Faced Orcs Await! Pssst… give your character an edge, claim one of these trove items!

The Caves of Utter Chaos (BOSS)

You’ve heard of the Caves of Chaos, perhaps? Well, these are the caves below those caves that nobody dares enter. We start by rolling up characters and then enter a dungeon brimming with terrible foes, nasty traps, and treasure galore. Full-throttle dungeon fun awaits with the BOSS (Basic Old Skool System). Rules taught. No XP required. Don’t forget those iron spikes and stirge repellant! Pssst… give your character an edge, claim one of these trove items!

Cast & Blast: Beyond Thunderdoom (WOSF)

We don’t need another hee-ro, we just need another wee-zard… Eight wizards enter Thunderdoom, one wizard leaves. This is a moderated player-vs-player, anything-goes spellbrawl where one wizard will walk away and the rest won’t. In WEGS, spellcasting is as simple as cast and blast. Use whatever spell you like, as long as you like, as many times as you like, as long as you have the spoints to pay for it. All rules taught. Zany dungeon fun awaits! Want an edge? Email the Lair Bear for a spellbook.

Shuffling Horror Blurbs

Shuffling Horror: Pittsburgh 68-Cannibal Creeps!

The Time: 1968. The Place: Pittsburgh. The Problem: Zombies AND Cannibals!  What’s worse than a zombie apocalypse? A zombie apocalypse with cannibal creeps on the prowl. A new twist on Pittsburgh 68 play! This cinematic card-n-dice story-telling experience plunges you into the horror of a creepy old zombie flick. Trapped in a farmhouse, survivors face an ever-growing zombie problem (which they might end up being a part of). Like a GM, one player directs the movie and controls the zombies; all other players just try to survive a night of the living dead! Who will be standing when the film fades to black?

Shuffling Horror: Innsmouth 32 (Summer 2020 Release)

Lovecraftian horror awaits in this latest Shuffling Horror release. Based on H.P. Lovecraft’s “Shadow Over Innsmouth”, the game’s action is set a few years after that story ends. On the lam gangsters hijack a tour bus of Miskatonic University scholars and students. One wrong turn lands the group in the decrepit seaside town of Innsmouth. A night of terror ensues in this cinematic card-n-dice game.
