Burn Rome in a day!


Thanks for taking a look at this event. It's going to be a fun time.

(Remember it's not cool to take other peoples stuff, this is just pretend!)

Prepare for an evening of looting and destruction at the End of the World.

Here's the plain facts for those of you who like such things.

I Was a Teenage Visigoth will run at Fallcon, here in Calgary, Alberta, Canada.
See a more specific location and registration details.

The event starts Friday night, September 18th at 7 pm.

The rules used are De Bellis Antiquitatus aka DBA version 2.2

Armies that are eligible are;

II/83 a Patrician Roman West
II/66 Early Vandal
II/67 b Early Ostrogoth (others)
II/71 Gepid
II/72 b, c, d Early Franks, Alamanni, Suevi
II/73 Early Saxons
II/80 a + d Hunnic
II/82 a Later Visigothic
II/83 b Patrician Roman East
II/84 African Vandal
III/2 Early Lombard

I've also handwaved in two other armies in recognition of their role in the end of the Western Empire,

II/70 a Burgundian
II/58 Alan

You are encouraged to bring your own army from the list. There will be some loaners on hand, but they will be randomly assigned so you might get stuck with the Early Saxons! (more on them guys later).

That's all you need to know for now. I'll post terrain restrictions, scoring and other stuff as we go.

In the tradition of the first Friday night games at Fallcon, 'I Was a Teenage Visigoth' is a relaxed, novice friendly tournament. The Calgary Camp Followers and our associates host a few De Bellis Antiquitatis events over the weekend.

The idea with the Friday night game is to provide a fun, theme based warm-up. Last year I ran 'Samurai Night Fever' which was quite enjoyable and well attended.

This year by focusing on the FALL OF ROME we can have pleasant evening focusing on treachery, blood lust and looting.
