SPAWN OF CYCLOPS CON ROARS INTO THE HOME STRETCH
Proving that she is indeed the apple of her father’s single, terrifyingly malefic eye, the Spawn of the Cyclops has hosted a virtual con that will be spoken of for ages yet to come. So ignore those sounds coming from the dungeon, sidestep that inexplicable pit trap (how’d that get there?), and read on for our full Sunday lineup of events!
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!
