THE WORLD TREMBLES BENEATH THE HOOVES OF THE SPAWN! WELCOME TO DAY TWO OF EMPIRE OF THE CYCLOPS CON!
The Cyclops is so proud of his daughter after yesterday’s amazing start at imperial dominion, and he just couldn’t wait to give everyone an overview of what to expect today.
So let’s start with the Twitch schedule for Saturday.
Twitch Schedule for Saturday, November 6
8:00 am EST – Breakfast With the Cyclops
Start your convention morning off with a healthy meal with The Cyclops! He’ll be eating his breakfast and…well, we know he’ll be eating his breakfast. Beyond that he’s a little unpredictable…
10:00 am EST – The Morning Roundup – Feeding the Cyclops (Sans Cyclops)
Susan and Brett are on hand live to give you a preview of the day’s events! Find out the latest news and happenings for the con as they prepare you for the day! Plus, they’ll be raffling off prizes to attendees! Find out if you win anything from our pool of gifts! (Need not be present to win.)
1:00 pm EST – Loot the Body Music Videos
Loot the Body is an LA-based musical group that produces psych indie rock inspired by classic sci-fi, fantasy, and D&D. For several years, Loot the Body has been paying musical homage to Appendix N and classic RPG adventures. Their new release Hex Volume 2 drops on 11/5 and Empire of the Cyclops Con will premiere 6 new songs from that album. Plus, Loot the Body now turn their gaze to DCC RPG with a song inspired by one of the most beloved 0-level funnel adventures of all time.
4:00 pm EST – Save Xcrawl Final Round
With the Empire threatening to take Xcrawl out of the public sphere and make it a military-only training tool, the nation is in an uproar. Now the Oracle of Key West makes a startling pronouncement: the Gods of Olympus declare that if the Adventurer’s League can put together a crawl that delights all the Children of Cronos approve of, they shall declare the Empire’s ruling void and Xcrawl shall remain the measure of the common man. Will you rise to meet the challenge!
Save Xcrawl is the 2021 Empire of the Cyclops Con tournament adventure, designed by Terry Olsen, Marc Bruner, Stephen Newton, Marzio Muscedere, and Brendan LaSalle. Tune in live to watch Judge Brendan run the finalists through their most harrowing adventure—broadcast live for the Empire to watch and enjoy!
8:30 pm EST – Saturday Night at the Cy-bar
When the barman rings that bell you know what time it is! It’s Saturday Night at the Cy-Bar, at Empire of the Cyclops Con, Saturday from 8:30-9:00 p.m. EST on The Goodman Games Official Twitch Channel. The convention is so busy we are only opening the doors for a half-hour, and that is all the more reason to grab a stool and say hey to Weird Uncle Brendan as he pours double-shots of fun and commentary.
Content warning: alcohol, alcohol discussion, tipsy uncle.
9:00 pm EST – The Scrivenery
Ed Stanek and Trevor Stamper share some tips and insights on the process of 3rd-party-publishing for DCC RPG.

A Note on Daylight Savings Time
Tonight at 2:00 am, the strange chronomancy of Daylight Savings Time will be enacted in a futile effort to subvert the Spawn of the Cyclops’ Imperial Ambitions! For all of our international audience, Daylight Savings Time will go into effect in the USA late this evening after all of our scheduled events (it will not effect today’s times) — this time change is taken into account by the Table Top Events page, which will display events in your local timezone. When in doubt, double check TTE’s event schedule, but for some of our content such as Twitch streams be advised that the times listed tomorrow will be one hour earlier relative to your local time zone.
And be sure to scour the map and keep an eye out for Empire of the Cyclops Con’s prized secret Secret Prize Stickers!
