THE MONSTER OF A CON CONTINUES! SPAWN OF CYCLOPS CON, DAY TWO.
The virtual con like no other is off to a colossally cyclopean start, and the sounds of gaming, canoodling, wheeling-dealing, and the chomping of adventurer’s bones echoes throughout the Citadel of the Cyclops! But we’ve only just begun — read on to see our jampacked Saturday lineup.
One thing to keep in mind is that our Dealer’s Hall is always open — but the Vendors themselves will only be appearing during certain hours. Most of our Dealers will be in their booths and available to chat with today from 4:00 to 6:00 PM EST, but double check the schedule to make sure you don’t miss your favorites.
Now let’s look at what’s happening over on Twitch today!
