Well, we’ve been radio silent for a couple months, but we definitely haven’t been twiddling our thumbs!
For those who don’t know me, my name is Taniith, and I’ll be heading up the Mysterium committee for 2015. We have some fun new things in the works, and I think you’re all really going to enjoy them. And of course, Mysterium 2015 will be just a few months before Obduction’s planned launch, so we’ll do our best to get a sneak peak out of Cyan.*
Date & Location
As was announced this summer, Mysterium 2015 will take place from August 7-9th in Boston, Massachusetts. As a reminder, Mysterium always takes place on the first full weekend of August.
The last time we were in Boston was 2011, and we have the whole 2011 band back together (along with some new faces and old favorites). We’re currently in the process of scouting hotels, and we expect to have more about that in a couple months. If all goes according to plan, pre-registration should re-open before the year is out.
The theme for this year’s Mysterium will be the age of Todelmer! An age built to study the heavens. And glorious heavens you’ll find at Mysterium, if we have anything to say about it.**
Finally, today we are kicking off our annual logo contest! Submissions are due by December 29th, 2014. You can submit either a front design, a back design, or both. More information about the design requirements and where to submit your entries is available at the logo contest page.
Even if you are not an artist yourself, please pass the contest details along to anyone who might be interested. We look forward to seeing what people come up with!
That’s all we have for now. But stay tuned for more in the near future.
To the honor of our Tubers,
-Taniith, Mysterium 2015 Chair
*we’ve got connections… and if that fails we’ll bake Bribe Donuts.
**yes, you can expect more Esher quotes in future blog poasts. Con-chair’s prerogative.
First, thank you so much to everyone who came to this year’s Mysterium; you helped make this our second-biggest event ever with over 150 attendees! Myst fans are the best! We hope you had a great time, and we appreciate your feedback. If you have anything you want to tell us about your experience (positive or negative), please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you have photos from last weekend that you’d like to share, please tag the Mysterium page on Google+, add them to the Mysterium 2014 Flickr Group, upload them to the Mysterium Facebook group, or you can add them to our Flickr photostream by following the instructions located here.
Next year’s Mysterium is going to be awesome! Obduction’s release will be getting closer, and we look forward to expanding the number of activities and panels for you to attend. Mysterium 2015 will be in Boston, MA, August 7 – 9. If you missed your chance to pre-register at the convention on Sunday, never fear. We’ll be putting up pre-registration again in a few months, once we’ve recovered from this year’s festivities and gotten more planning finalized.
Until then, you can keep in touch with us and other attendees by joining our forum or our Facebook group. We’ll also be posting updates to our Facebook page, our Google+ page, our Tumblr, and our Twitter account.
Thank you again to everyone who came, and to everyone who watched out livestream. Mysterium is nothing without people like you! We hope to see you again next year!
To accommodate the attendees who are going to the Livingstone Rock Ranch this morning, we have moved Closing Ceremonies to 2:00 PM.
Our live stream will begin at 10:00 AM Pacific. You can join in at http://www.justin.tv/mysteriumcon. Cyan Chat is still out of commission, so please feel free to use the chat on Justin.tv.
Due to some delays getting the registration desk open, opening ceremonies have been pushed back to 10:30 AM Pacific Time in order to get more people through the registration line. We apologize for the delays.
