"Nathanael Cole (better known as the ol' NPC) is returning to his new favorite convention for the second time. NPC is a ridiculously motivated podcaster of geek-centric media, hosting on podcasts such as Have Movies Will Game, Bikers Dice & Bars, and the new HAMMERCRAWL! podcast - the latter two of which are produced by his own Breakfast Puppies production company. When not podcasting, he rides his motorcycles throughout the great Pacific Northwest, and somehow finds time to work on producing small-press role-playing games such as Cannibal Contagion, Motobushido, and the upcoming Gattaibushido:FUSION! He'll be at the convention morning to nightfall and beyond, and is excited to be back for more Wagoncon awesomeness."

WagonCon 2018 is proud to present Dreadtrifty, a very special set of guests:
Deadtrify is a student-led company based at Wahtonka Community School in The Dalles, Oregon.
For a school project, the original members were given an idea for a board game based on the principles of warfare. Since it started in late November, it has grown enormously from a simple concept into an amazing and unique product. This is the first game of its type, with replay ability, unique concepts, and time efficiency at its core. We have great plans regarding our game for the future.
At WagonCon 2018, we plan to show off our game and everything we’ve done so far. Every member of our team has been enjoying the aspects of creating this strategy war game without any exceptions.
