Heckcon

In May 2014 the Irish gaming community sadly lost one of its members, David Smyth, better known to his friends and gamer acquaintances as Heck. On September 13th, to commemorate his life and the hobby he loved we hosted a 1 day gaming event in Aid of the Irish Cancer Society.

Due to the fabulous support of the gaming community and traders we raise a total of €3,530 which is being donated directly to the Irish Cancer Society. A big thanks to all our attendees, those who donated items for our raffles and everyone who helped make the con happen

We’ll be posting a gallery shortly but some pictures are already available on our Facebook page. During the con we also mentioned an Industrial era, steampunk, high fantasy roleplaying game that Heck was developing called TIER. It has now been released under creative commons licence. If you want to check it out you can download it from this Dropbox link.
