Arcanacon 2021 and Online Events incoming...

A Big Shout Out to all our Arcanacon Lovelies
Hoping everyone is well and safe.

First the Bad News
There will be no “in person” Arcanacon in 2021. 😢
With the level of uncertainty around whether we can have a large gathering of people in January we felt that we cannot risk the money and the human energy by working towards something that may not be allowed to happen. We also don’t want to put anyone’s good health at risk.
I know this is disappointing for all of you who, like us, love Arcanacon, but we will run something on the Australia Day Weekend, we just don’t know what.
AND…..

Now for some well needed good news!
You can relive all the joy of ARC20 in your own affair with Death in the House of Love, the romantic comedy brewed by Tabletop Dynasties. This was a standout event of ARC20, and may drive you to madness with laughter… Watch here!

Perhaps you’re seeking more thrills, frights, terror? Chaosium has you covered.
ARC20 played host to a liveplay of Reign of Terror. Mark Morrison leads his players through a story of madness in revolutionary France… Watch here!

New Online Events!
Can you feel the rumbling? The whirring of gears? In the next few weeks we will be unveiling an exciting Dungeons & Dragons competition and a creative game jam event powered by Arcanacon.
Keep your eyes peeled for our upcoming announcements…
