Grab your virtual dice bags folks and mark down November 16-18, 2012 on your calendar, as the AetherConOnline RPG Convention is coming to your computer! Best of all, it’s FREE!
We will be featuring tabletop RPGs of all types throughout the weekend, highlighted by four three-day tournaments of Pathfinder Call of Cthulhu, Pathfinder, Savage Worlds, and Shadowrun. Game tables will be run on the powerful, yet easy to use, Roll20 browser-based virtual tabletop. Learn more with the Roll20 tutorials and the Roll20 Live Stream.
Additionally, we will have a Vendor’s Hall, a Fest Hall (featuring one-hour moderated chat room Q&As with pairs of industry guests) and an Artist’s Enclave. We will be releasing free downloadable wallpapers, from our supporting artists, throughout the months leading up to the con.
