Candlekeep Presents at GenCon 2016
As with the last two years, we’re reaching out to the fan community to help defray the costs of some of the handouts we’ll be providing, including this year’s commemorative pin. Unlike last year, we’re coming out of the gate planning two pins for this year—one for attendees of the seminar (and remote attendees), and another to match the special Harper pin from last year.
We have a number of different donation levels available, so please, review the updates for descriptions and photos of which pins you’ll get with your choice of donation, and give as generously as you can. We can’t achieve our goals without your support, generosity, and help in spreading the word. (And if you choose to donate, please pick the level that best matches the rewards you wish to receive. You can always adjust your contribution level upwards, if you want to!)
All of the reward levels include shipping within the domestic U.S. or pickup at GenCon. If you’re outside of the States, please send a message after you contribute so we can communicate any additional shipping costs.
As always, thanks to everyone who makes this annual gathering possible. See you in Indianapolis!
The Candlekeep Presents seminar will be held Saturday night, August 6, at GenCon 2016 in Indianapolis, IN. The event itself is free to anyone with a GenCon badge, and we want to keep it that way. This funding will allow us to continue giving out the goodies we have been, and still make sure that everyone at GenCon that's a fan of the Forgotten Realms can participate. YOU DO NOT HAVE TO CONTRIBUTE TO THIS EFFORT TO ATTEND.
The event is SEM1684079, and if patterns of previous years hold, tickets are likely to sell out before the convention. So if you plan to join us, please make sure to get a ticket. Even if you don’t have a ticket, we may not have space for you! (If you're already logged into your gencon.com account, you can click here for more information.)
If you look to the right, you'll notice that I've raised the funding goal to $900. This increased amount will allow us to provide some cool prizes for our contests and giveaways, as well as make sure we have enough to cover more pins should the attendance go up beyond what we currently expect.
Whether we hit that amount or not, thank you all for contributing!
Thanks to everyone for your amazing support!
Zhentarim Special: Seeing as their perennial nemeses, the Harpers, got their own special pin last year, it’s time for the Zhentarim to get their turn! Combining the classic iconography of previous eras with more modern takes on the organization, this pin embraces the enduring legacy of the Black Network—and makes sure observers will notice and give heed to anyone bold enough to present it openly.
Lords of Waterdeep: This is the pin from our 2014 seminar, and is the emblem of the Lords of Waterdeep. Comes complete with the “Candekeep 2014” misprinted/typo!
Primordial Goddesses: This pin is from the 2015 “Women of the Realms” seminar, and combines the symbols of the twin goddesses of creation—the moon-goddess Selûne and Shar, goddess of night and loss—with that of their daughter, the goddess Mystra.
This is so awesome! I am definitely joining!!
I'm after both of this year's pins as well. Any chance of a pledge level to get both of them?
Will there be a level for this year's pin and the Zhentarim pin?
