Introduced at Matcon 23 in 2004, Witenagemot is a board game designed to simulate the movement of troops and provide a high-level model for the economics of the Reaches. While smaller battles in Witenagemot are determined by a roll of the dice, strategic battles are fought using the Warmaster system. It is expected that one campaign year will be concluded during each Matcon.

In case you were wondering, Witenagemot is an Anglo-Saxon council made up of a varying number of nobles, prelates, and influential officials and convened from time to time to advise the king on matters of commerce and warfare.

The Prize

This game is worth 100,000 experience points in the Realm. Participation in either the game itself or working on the nasty coded message will qualify you to share the points, and the experience pool is divided up accordingly.
