Non-Programming Activities

Since the convention is virtual in 2021, our usual non-programming activities are going to look a little different! We have two evening activities scheduled that are available only to registered members, and there will no doubt be a number of member-run events in our Discord during the weekend.

Journey Back to 1988: Willow Watch Party

Friday 6/18, 7:30 Central

Join Scott Lynch in a movie watch party! The 1988 film Willow was a formative one for many fans of the fantasy genre. Hang out in Discord as you watch and enjoy the trenchant commentary of Scott and all the other 4th Street members!

For licensing reasons, we cannot broadcast the movie ourselves, but Willow is available on Disney+, Apple TV, Youtube, and Google Play, and we will be providing cues to synch your play with the commentary so you can follow along from the comfort of your own devices.

Post-Cataclysm Blues: a World of Warcraft Stream and Lecture

Saturday 6/19, 7:30 Central

So how do you live after the world ends? C.L. Polk will be using the online game World of Warcraft as the setting for an exploration of the subject by taking members on a walking tour of two Kalimdors: the original game world and the profound changes to the landscape after the Cataclysm took place.

The event will be streamed live in our Discord – members will be able to watch and listen to the event with no additional software to install. Or if you are a World of Warcraft player and want to join in, you can walk in-game with your host! Just make a Horde character on the Bloodsail Buccaneers server in WoW Classic: Burning Crusade and you will be able to roleplay walking from Orgrimmar to the bottom of The Barrens while we discuss stories that happen after world-altering damage is done.
