Hi Everyone,

We hope this finds all of you healthy and safe.

When we had to cancel HELIOsphere 2020 because of the coronavirus, we were sad.

And, we were bored.

So, this weekend, we bring to you:

HELIOsphere: Beyond the Corona!
(a virtual event)

Join us while we all #StayHome! 

While we had to cancel our in-person event this year, it doesn’t mean we can’t still gather together online for some games, presentations, panels, readings, and lots of music.  It’s free, and open to everyone – please share this with your friends.

The schedule has been included below for your convenience, but please check our website and Facebook event page for the most up-to-date information.

(Also, please help us out by Liking and Sharing our FB event page.)

All-Weekend Gaming

Our resident game master, Galen, who runs our game room and vends out of there, too, will be online much of the weekend at Boardgame Arena and would love it if you joined him for some games!  His username is Galen_Mac_Byrne.  Enjoy! (and Good Luck!)

Also, Mark Sabalauskas, who is running a couple of one-off, no experience necessary RPGs this weekend, is also very kindly keeping a couple tables open on his Discord server for anyone who would like to use it for pick-up games. Enjoy!
