AS THE LAND FALLS TO THE CYCLOPS’ FORCES, JOIN US FOR THE FINAL DAY OF THE EMPIRE OF THE CYCLOPS CON!
Proud Pappa Cyclops and his adorably conquest-minded Spawn have ravaged the lands in order to bring gamers a convention like no other! But before we detail everything you can expect from today’s convention, the Cyclops wants Con attendees to know that everyone signed up for Empire of the Cyclops Con is eligible to win free stuff!
Indeed, just tune in this morning at 10 am EST for Brett and Susan’s The Morning Roundup show on the Official Goodman Games Twitch Channel to see if you win the raffle! Everyone with a Con Badge is automatically entered to win randomly-selected prizes from a pool of adventures and other publications, many of them signed by Goodman Games authors and designers.
As we start day three, here is what we can look forward to in this jampacked day of gaming and events, but make sure you adjust your plans in light of the Temporal Disturbance of Daylight Savings Time!
A Note on Daylight Savings Time
Daylight Savings Time went into effect in the USA last evening. For all of our international audience, this time change is taken into account by the Table Top Events page, which will display events accurately in your local time zone. When in doubt about the time for an event, double check TTE’s event schedule. But for some of our content, such as Twitch streams, please be advised that the times listed below are now one hour earlier relative to your local time zone. (ie., if yesterday you were five hours ahead of the US East Coast, today you are six).
Now that you’ve been warned, let’s start with the Twitch schedule for Sunday!

Games With Open Seats
Looking for a last-minute game to play? You’re in luck! Here are some events that you can still squeeze into and play today — but hurry, there aren’t many unclaimed spots to go around!
1:00 pm EST – Event 25 – The Blackest Friday (DCC Umerica) *two spots left*
Level 5 DCC Umerica adventure. This is a playtest for experienced players. Have you ever wanted to help Santa save Black Friday in the apocalypse? In this adventure you have the opportunity. Not for kids.
1:00 pm EST – Event 87 – The Jeweler that Dealt in Stardust (DCC RPG) *two spots left*
A band of torchbearers passes the shop of Ogo the Jeweler, where Cheap Street intersects Dowager Alley. Their brands sputter and spit in the darkness as the cold rain courses off the tile roof, pouring down into the street and draining into a nearby sewer. You flex your fingers to ward off the chill, silently thankful for a night without moon or stars. The fences of Punjar are infamous for their cunning and greed, and Boss Ogo is no exception. Operating under the guise of a jeweler, Ogo does a brisk trade in stolen goods, enjoying the protection of a gang of bravos and thugs. But even the wary eye of a gang boss is no promise of surety in Punjar’s deadly environs. For the last month, no one has seen or heard from Ogo. The jeweler’s door is barred, his shutters locked, and no smoke escapes from the shop’s chimney. Like ravens circling a stinking carcass, the bravos and pinch thieves of the Souk smell a fortune for the taking. All that is required is a band of rogues audacious enough to cross Boss Ogo, skilled enough to survive his house of traps, and lucky enough to make it out alive. *New Players Welcome*
2:00 pm EST – Event 99 – Attack of the Plane Jumper (DCC RPG) *three spots left*
The wizard Chyttrip seeks the 716 pure elemental decompositions of phlogiston, to manipulate phlogiston at will with the power of a god. Chyttrip has arrived in your world to collect element number 652. What role will you play in Chyttrip’s machinations? This is a funnel, I’ll provide 0-level chars. *New Players Welcome*
2:00 pm EST – Event 136 – The Sinister Sutures of the Sempstress (DCC RPG) *two spots left*
Not for the nervous! This adventure contains themes of fantasy horror! Your mothers were wrong: there ARE monsters in the cellar! Terror seeks out the adventurers, drawing them into a tailored web of vengeance long deferred as, torn from their beds in their own homes, they find themselves trapped in the House of Tattered Remnants, the home and prison of an eldritch entity known as the Sempstress. Can they overcome patchwork horrors, unearthly craftsmen and even the unravelling of their own realities? If they survive these challenges, they must then face the Sempstress in her own lair, defeat her and escape: However, failure will result in the players being unmade by her evil!
And be sure to scour the map and keep an eye out for Empire of the Cyclops Con’s prized secret Secret Prize Stickers!
