Greetings!  You can ask about stuff here, but the best thing you can do is have your tabletop.events accounts created and be ready for when registration opens later today

Registration is open for MystaraCon 2021

There's a limited number of "early bird" badges at a discount, but not many of them!
Once you are registered for the convention, you can then register for any events for free.

Key Items to Consider:

1.  GMs, DO NOT buy a badge.  I am creating yours tonight.

2.  You may not 'double-book' yourself for simultaneous events.

3.  The panels / seminars will be streamed through YouTube using UNLISTED links.
DO NOT share these links, as we want the live version of the panel to be limited to those who paid for their convention badges.
After MystaraCon is complete, we will make the recording public for others to watch.
(there are some events that are Discord-only and not streamed at all; they are noted in their descriptions)

4.  The Discord server is for convention badge-holders only.  Do not share that server link with anyone who is not a badge-holder.

5.  It is the player's responsibility to connect with the DM on the DM's platform of choice for their game events.  Please double-check the platform before registering for any events.

6.  There have been a few updates to the schedule; the schedule at tabletop.events is ALWAYS the authoritative one

7.  There will be updates to the 'table names' in Discord in the next 24 hours as we update them to match the DM's names.

Did this happen? How did it go?

I kept trying to register early last week and it wouldn't let me in. Then I got busy with, you know, stuff....

It was a great time, if a bit small.  Lots of positive feedback and people wanting to do it again next year

Just spent two hours watching the video with Shawn from Vaults Of Pandius.  Super awesome site.  Glad you turned me on to it all those years ago.  Wanted to say three things:

1) I will fight you for being the biggest Mystara nerd at ACD

2) How could you not tell me this con was a thing?!

3) I have Wrath of the Immortals.  $250 is way too low a price for me to part with it ;)

Lots of maps is a good thing - Panzerde

1) I will fight you for being the biggest Mystara nerd at ACD

You're in trouble, then.  Remember this is me, too....
And if you go thru the old AOL message archives from Pandius, look for "b1bard" - that's me, too.
Plus I'm the guy who, y'know, organized the actual convention about the damn thing :)


2) How could you not tell me this con was a thing?!

You mean why didn't we put it on the site? https://www.armchairdragoons.com/acdcons/mystaracon-2021/
Or on the front page?  https://www.armchairdragoons.com/events/cons/mystaracon-2021-events/
Or, y'know in this thread where you're commenting


3) I have Wrath of the Immortals.  $250 is way too low a price for me to part with it ;)

It was available for free on DTRPG a few months ago.
Still not parting with my printed copy

1)  You fight dirty

2)  Like many other folks that roll through here, I tend to stay in my lane when it comes to which sections I visit.  I am officially a part of the welcome wagon because it's top of page.  If there ain't anything new there, I immediately scroll to the bottom.  And I refuse to make a "front page" joke.

3)  Good for both of us  :)
