Virtuacon is an all-virtual worldwide RPG gaming convention utilizing free online tools to bring gamers together for The Best 3 Days in Virtual Gaming. Virtuacon is the convention you attend from the comfort of your own home - but run much like a traditional convention with slotted game events, industry guest speakers and contests galore. With numerous games being offered by world-class GMs, you can be sure to find something great to play! We especially welcome new players to the hobby - come and experience the rich world of role-playing with a community who would love to count you among our friends!


Virtuacon runs from 16:00 (UTC) October 6th until 22:00 (UTC) October 8th, 2017. Friday, Saturday and Sunday are our days of operation and we'll be slotting in games and events around the clock.


All games are advertised via RPG Geek and game signups will be Warhorn (link coming). This year we are going to let GMs decide what virtual tabletop they prefer to use and whichever communication (Hangout, Inferno, Roll20, etc) platform they prefer.


UTC is Universal Time Code. It's the same time as GMT. You can find a bunch of converters on the web (like this one). Don't let the fancy timezones scare you! When Virtuacon '17 starts it will be about 7:00 pm in Eastern Europe, 6:00 pm in Western Europe, 5:00 pm in the UK, and about noon in the eastern US.

How Does it Work?

These days, technology has gotten to the point where we can easily play Role-Playing games, live, with people all across the globe. This is generally done via Google Hangouts which turns your webcam (most laptops have them built in) and microphone into vehicles to "sit", virtually, at the table with other gamers. While Google Hangouts or other interface provides the video and audio, add-on programs such as Roll20 provide die rollers and virtual tabletops. All of these tools are free - and Game Masters have leveraged these tools to great effect in the last few years. Virtuacon '17 will use these same tried-and-true online tools to bring a full convention lineup beamed directly into your house! Cool. Seriously.

Prize Information

This year's prize pool will be for the gamemastersand event volunteers. They work very hard to ensure each attendee that sits at their virtual table or who experiences the greatness of VirtuaCon has an enjoyable time. The prize pool (PDF coupons, gift certificates, etc) will be presented to all the GMs; each will be free to pick one prize per session they ran. Selection will be on a first come, first served basis. Event volunteers will also be offered a chance to grab something from the prize pool.


Virtuacon would like to extend a thank you to our gracious sponsors, who together have provided us with some great prizes to give away to lucky GMs!
