It sucks that Expo got canceled but we all know it was for good reason and we're doing our part to keep ourselves, our friends and families safe. So in place of Epic20, I present NotEpic2020!
All next week, June 22nd - 27th, along with our normal weekly events we've got events planned to have some get-togethers, play some more games, and keep the spirit of Expo Icrontic alive. If you have any events you would like to see happen or host, please let me know and we'll make it happen!
Please Fill Out The Participation Survey Here: https://forms.gle/5V5tamzSedb4Z6YY7
--I'll be streaming my POV of most events on Twitch. Links to any streams will be posted here.-- It's too much. I was not able to get this set up.
The #porch voice channel has been created on Discord. Not participating in an even but want to hang out and BS about hardware and rock music? Take a sit on the porch and chill. Throw up a camera view of your view if you can.
Keep an eye on the official Icrontic Calendar for easy tracking of all the events.

We will be assisting on getting Four Kings Casino ready to roll for those who have not played before.
We'll start a Rocket League tourney to make sure that goes smooth.
Take some time to get setup, you don't want to miss a moment of the fun at Game Time!
I'm trying to pack a lot into each night here so I'll be starting events at the given times. Some events require that you be there at the start to participate so please plan accordingly.
Love you all!
I have been in the number 10 folding slot at Team Icrontic for a long time, but today, I am number 11. Congratulations to @mas0n for bumping me out of the Top 10. Maybe I need a new graphics adapter. Anyway, keep up the good work!
I've been playing probably 20 hours or so on this since Tuesday, and I've got to say, it's worth the 20 bucks. I did buy the Hero Edition for 30 to get the future DLCs.
The game is simplistic, fast, and at times unforgiving, everything I was hoping for. It's depth has been trimmed down, but enough left in there you can really customize how you want to play. Though there are quite a few kind of stupid decisions in my opinion, none of them are big enough to really retract from the overall fun. You mind if just learn to game the game system.
There is maybe only 2 dozen total weapons, or armor, but each one is unique in its function. Each individual item will be assigned 1-3 enchantment slots with 1-3 enchantment options per slot. So your specific goals may be hard to achieve, but it let's you play around with different styles. Leading to lots of grinding if you really wanted to play a certain way.
While the game can be unforgiving in both challenge and RNG the drawbacks to messing up are pretty much nonexistent. You can die 4 times before just being booted from the level and having to start over. Enchanted some gear that's not working anymore you can just destroy it and get your points back and some money at the same time.
All and all, it's a nice game to sit and grind through while watching a movie or chatting. And all while being easy enough my 5 year old can destroy some monsters.
We're all baking anyways, I think it's time we have an official bake-off!
How you qualify--
Next weekend, May 30th and 31st, you will bake a thing! (or any time this week! I don't really care!)
Anything! Literally anything! Savory, sweet, I don't care, I'm not eating it! (Unless your name rhymes with Mosh and you live close enough that you could leave some at my house...just saying**).
Post photos here of what you baked and the recipe (as long as it's not a family secret) and you will be entered into a raffle to win a $10 Amazon gift-card.
- Bonus internet points for baking a new recipe, for telling us what you learned/what you'd do differently, for getting someone to judge your food or judging it yourself and for sharing here or in Discord progress photos of how your baking is going! __Note: bonus points have no impact on winning but will be noted in the official register.
- Sidenote: I am definitely not stalking any of you nope no sirree so I definitely have no idea when you actually bake things. Cough. (Honestly...I don't actually care when you bake the thing! Just bake it!)
Bake bake baaake bakeeey bake bakerooos
Bagels for tax
** No Posh does not have any elevated chances at winning
I've been in the process of making my own booze for a few years now. I've done everything from imperial stouts to crab apple wines yet I'm getting stuck on making sake/rice wine
My first attempt turned into rice wine vinegar and my second attempt turned out pretty rancid. Not sure if it's because I messed up the koji or something else.
My third attempt I gave up on making my own koji and am using stuff imported from Japan (no english instructions). Im not sure if it's going to turn out at this point and its got me pretty frustrated.
Has anyone made sake/rice wine before and could help a fellow Icrontian out? It would be greatly appreciated
I'm excited to bring back an old expo tradition for this weekend's Minecraft session! We'll be doing a creative challenge starting at 8pm EST sharp. This challenge will probably only last an hour, so we recommend that you log on a little early in the event of technical problems or questions. I will give you a prompt, and then you will have an hour to make something in creative mode that fits that prompt. There's pretty much no rules besides the time limit-- you can make whatever you want with the materials available in creative mode, within a certain plot size on the map. Obviously, touching the creations of other players is also against the rules.
There will be two prizes available for this challenge-- a first place prize for most creative/impressive art piece, and a participation prize available by raffle. The competition will be judged blind by me.
First place prize: Creeper plush because I'm your pal the Creeper Queen (you'll need to give me your address to get this)
Participation Prize Raffle-- $10 Amazon gift card (no address needed, can send as digital code)
Many thanks to @BobbyDigi for handling the technical aspects of this...I got no idea how these here Minecraft servers work
So excited to see your creations!!
