Tournament Name: WarGods of Olympus – Curse of the Snake People

Games System: WarGods of Aegyptus


WarGod of Olympus – Curse of the Snake People

In Sparta a baby is born with no legs.  As per custom, it is left, exposed on a hillside.  The next morning, both parents were dead.

 In the fields surrounding Troy, there are infestations of serpents.  Crops wither, and famine looms over the city.

 In Corinth, strange symbols appear on door frames.  Days later, a hideous sickness sweeps through the slums.

 Across Hellas, the City-States are beset by vermin, famine, plague, and death.  Fearful citizens whispers of cults festering in the shadows, and each City looks to its neighbours with suspicion.  Tensions are rising as Cities accuse each other of taking advantage of the situation … or worse, causing it.

 You are a staunch defender of y our city.  You must rally the people to face this challenge.  You must remain strong, as any sign of weakness will be exploited by rival cities.  And in turn, you must exploit any weakness in your neighbours.  It  may be the only way to survive.

 In the darkness, Golghaata stirs.  She watches the City-States of Hellas bicker and squabble.  She smiles and turns to her children.  “Soon.  Soon the cities of Hellas will be ours.”  Her children respond with a chorus of anticipatory hisses.



This is a two day, 6 game, WarGods of Ægyptus tournament on Saturday 28 and Sunday 29 January 2017.  Please note that Thursday 26 January 2017 is the Australia Day public holiday.  This tournament runs on Day 2 and Day 3 of CanCon 2017.

While the Tournament does have an Olympian theme, all Warbands, including Ægyptian and Wendigo are welcome.  If players do have an Olympian Warband,  they are strongly encouraged to consider taking it.  All the scenarios, terrain and awards for this tournament will be themed around Olympus.


Awards and Prizes

Certificates will be awarded for 1st and 2nd Overall (Champion and Favoured of Zeus) (based on a combination of achieving scenario objectives, defeating enemy Warbands, defeating enemy leaders, painting and sportsmanship).
