"Weapons: Fire torpedoes! Helm: Evasive starboard! Engineering: Damage report!"

Have you ever wanted to join the crew of a starship? The TSN Dawn Treader returns to Convolution to make that dream come true, with the Artemis: Spaceship Bridge Simulator!

Will you and your friends (helmsperson, weapons officer, chief engineer, science officer, communications sergeant and captain) protect the sector from invading alien enemies? Learn what fate has in store for you -- GLORY, or HILARIOUS DEATH!

More information about how to reserve your mission spot will be available soon at http://www.con-volution.com.

Did you miss out on our "Tax Time" membership deal? Near-Sighted Predator and Summer Fun Cthulhu say you should pick up one of our flyers at #BigWow  this weekend -- or +Kraken Con next weekend -- for a new $5 discount code.

Our Chairman will be attending both, so watch for the crocheted pink Viking helmet!

Looking for a little break?
 
IT'S TAX TIME! Could you stand to spend a little less on something right now? How does a discount on a membership to Convolution 2015 sound?

Until 11:59 PM tomorrow (for you late filers), use discount code "TaxTime2015" for $5 off your full-weekend membership!

What has been the response to the introduction of gay characters (if there are any) in your fandom?
Fellow fanboys and fangirls will criticize you or the characters you’ve come to love. But never fear, we're here to help you muddle through the flame wars.

Y'know, if they are saving people, it doesn't matter to me who they love. They should get to be happy, like anyone else. Unhappy supers usually turn into villains, yknow, except for Batman.


ETA: Of course there are gay supers. Because there are. That should be assumed.

Convolution's Second Masquerade Is Coming!

Convolution is again hosting a Masquerade for our costuming/cosplay community, and for the general delight of all our attendees. This year we have two competitive tracks – each with multiple categories – so as to include just about anyone who'd like to enter.

CREATED – Traditional track for costumes wholly crafted from scratch.
ASSEMBLED – New track honoring the more recent widespread availability of purchasable costume pieces.

There is also a non-competitive EXHIBITION option for those who simply wish to show off their costumes onstage!

The Masquerade will take place Saturday afternoon prior to that evening’s DIPLOMAT’S BALL. Full category descriptions and Official Rules will be posted to our website soon. Watch this space for more info!

Who else wants to play video games with our 2015 Toastmistress, Jackie Kashian? :) 
Comedian Jackie Kashian stopped by to our offices recently to play an Obscure Dreamcast game, and talk to us about being a guest on Comedy Central's @Midnight .

Convolution 2015's special room rate of $126/night at the Hyatt Regency San Francisco Airport is now open for reservations!

http://con-volution.com/2015/attend/hotel/

That rate includes free parking and internet, and is available not just for our convention dates of October 2-4, but for an additional day on both ends in case you'd like to hang out a little longer.

Check our page for more details!
