MEPACON 38 In-Person Event Cancelled
To attend the virtual MEPACON, visit our Register Page for details.
We here at MEPACON HQ have been hearing the word “unprecedented” a lot, lately, so we’re going to steer clear of that word. Instead, we’ll say that the times we’re living in are unparalleled, at least in at least a lifetime or two, if not all of history. This has forced a lot of hard decisions on everyone. We’ve been watching the news, especially listening to the words and plans of the governors of Pennsylvania, New York, and New Jersey, and using that to make some of those hard decisions. Though we’d hoped to mitigate things by moving the date, and considering new dates further down the line, we realized that too much further into the summer, and we’ll be colliding with a lot of other plans people might have if they’re able to keep them in these unparalleled times.
With that, it’s with a heavy heart that we must cancel the in-person event that was MEPACON 38, and hope for the best that MEPACON 39 will be able to run on our planned dates of November 6-8. For attendees already registered, we are working on transferring reservations to either MEPACON 39, or to MEPACON 40: April 16-18, 2021, this would cover both your hotel reservation and badge registration. To choose which event to transfer to, or to let us know that you need us to reach out to you, please fill out this quick form:
Virtual MEPACON 38, May 15-17, 2020
Now, we did say “in-person” a moment ago, and what we want to do instead is to run a virtual MEPACON 38 on the in-person dates. We are focusing on a new virtual format, with games hosted across multiple channels (Tabletop Simulation, Fantasy Grounds, Roll20, Zoom, Skype, Discord and more) and connecting new friends and old across the table. We know that the timing is short, and it will take a day or two to reconfigure our Tabletop Events site for the new format, as well as get the MEPACON 39 Tabletop site up, but we’ll be in touch with our GMs soon!
Want to help out with our free online event?
If you would like to donate some money to MEPACON to fund out free online event, we appreciate it! If we raise more money than we need, all proceeds will be invested into bring you an even better event in the Fall or donated to local charities.
How do we participate in the Virtual event?
You can gain access one of three ways:
• If you signed up for MEPACON 38 Spring 2020 and have not been issued a refund, you’re in!
• In this case, you will get access to the Discord AND an automatic badge for MEPACON 39 Fall 2020.
• You can sign up now for MEPACON 39 Fall 2020 and get the bonus of the virtual event!
• If you can’t make either of those dates and just want to participate online, you’re welcome to. We ask that you pay whatever you feel you can to help us offset the costs of the event.
If you have any questions about the new virtual event, please email email@example.com.
We hope that the entire MEPACON family is staying safe and hope to see you around the virtual table, May 15-17, for our new, digital event.
