    My Greyhawk community brought me to GaryCon and at some point since VGC (Virtual GaryCon), we decided to do a virtual con with a Greyhawk focus.

    We've already got over 50 events and about 140 players, so if you'd like to play some D&D (all the editions, even Pathfinder, played in Greyhawk), then come join us!

    And if you're just into watching stuff, there's a number of Twitch Live Streams:
    Be sure to checkout Luke Gygax and Stephen Chenault on Jay's Saturday night game!

    With a few weeks remaining, we still have seats in about 19 events! If you're looking to have a nice RPG game set in Greyhawk, why not come checkout the con? You can even browse the events first without buying the whopping $3.12 badge (the least that the event management software, TTE, lets us charge). All events are free.

    Be a part of the virtual con scene which we'll probably be talking about years later... "Remember when we couldn't go to any cons! Which virtual cons did you go to?"

    Also, coming up right afterward is Luke Gygax's Autumn Revel!

    Well, this Friday is the convention! Submissions for events are now closed. There are a handful of events with a seat or 2 open (and yes, you can register for them), but for the most part we're pretty well booked. If you're interested in watching some of the game play in the various editions, check out our live streaming lineup which is absolutely free to watch and everyone is invited!

    And don't forget the week after is Autumn Revel! Luke has put out the call for players, so come join the fun and get in a game.

    Our first Hawktoberfest (Virtual Greyhawk Con) is in the books. With 236 badges issued and 70 events booked in, we'd class this as a success for the community. The streaming lineup experienced great viewership. We learned a lot from the whole experience. Do you have feedback? Head on back to the con discord and leave your thoughts in the hangout and talk text channel.
    The Discord will continue to operate and you can certainly run games there if you'd like. If you'd like to advertise your games and cons, use the gamers-seeking-gamers channel.
    This Friday, on Canonfire's Greychat (the voice channel), we will be reflecting on Hawktoberfest (VGHC), so come share your favorite moments, feedback, and anything else you can think of. Join the discord from the link here:
