When: Friday 5:30-6:30 pm
Where: Ruby Slipper Saloon (210C)
What: How to develop a Character

Captain Amelia “Coppertop” Reinier is going to talk to you about developing a character (or persona). She’s going to give you things to consider, such as setting, subgenres, and roles. There are lots of games out there, but what if you aren’t in a game? How do you make a persona without a rule book? What if you aren’t part of an Airship or don’t want to be a Skyrat (sky pirate)? What is the Multiverse? Cpt. Coppertop is going talk about the many choices you have and the best way to start when you’re looking to create a Steampunk Character.

These photos include both our SCARS and Dark Steampunk personas.

   

When: Saturday 11:30-12:30 pm
Where: Symposium Room 1 (208)
What: Steampunk for Beginners

If you are new to Steampunk and don’t know where to start, this is a great panel for you! 1st Officer Thomas Reinier is going to talk about what Steampunk is, the aesthetics, and some of the subgenres. He’s going to tell you about costuming on a budget, from making your own stuff to where to buy it. Thomas is also going to tell you about the local communities and how to find them. The best way to start in Steampunk, is to show up!
