Hi all, I know, I know. We're a little bit heartbroken too.
What we're reading about COVID-19 leads us to believe we won't be in the clear until August at the earliest. Even if all travel restrictions are lifted by the end of May, we feel it would be irresponsible to put 50+ people in the same house for 4 days. Gatherings of that size may still be banned at that point anyway. Postponing isn't a good option either: It's already hard enough to get everyone here at once, lots of folks are about to eat up all their PTO, and everyone is super stressed out just with their day-to-day.
As many of you know, we fund the annual website budget with Expo ticket sales. About 25% of your ticket cost goes toward this. With that funding gone, we've set up a GoFundMe for the next year of operations: https://www.gofundme.com/f/icrontic-newbuddhist-2020-fund
That leaves Oktoberfest as the next Icrontic event. Thankfully, it appears well out of pandemic cancellation range. What we'd like to do is extend that event by a day and maybe plan a group activity or three to give it a bit more structure. That will be Thu October 29 - Sun Nov 1, with folks welcome to arrive Wednesday. Activity suggestions are welcome.
If folks would like to organize alternate online gaming for the weekend of Expo (or really any time during these semi-quarantine weeks), please reach out and let's chat.
I hope someday this is all just interesting Icrontic trivia: the year we lost Expo.
Borderlands 3 is currently 50% off on steam until tomorrow. There's a fair bit of coop content and matchmaking takes forever for randoms...
So who's down for some face melting, ratch killing, catch a ride mayhem?

Hey all, if you've been to an Icrontic Event there is a good chance you've met @sneakypurples Last night she lost all her shit to a bitch ass tornado in Nashville. I started a Gofundme for her so she can get her shit together. Please help our favorite skin pincher out.
Losing my touch, I'm late on the DB thread. I am trash man.
It started today. I'm late. I wish I had a good excuse but I don't. 7:30AM this morning I was at my PC waiting for it to start and I didn't make a thread because I am a bad. ANYWAYS.
You know the drill by now. Desert Bus for Hope 13 is underway and those psychopaths have already raised $117,000 on the first day. If you're new here, Desert Bust for hope is a live streamed charity where a Canadian comedy group plays the worst game ever made for like a week straight and do the dumbest stuff to earn your money. Its a virtual fishbowl and you can make em dance with money. Want to make them say that I am small time? Easy peasy:
If you live under a rock or something, this is Desert Bus:
This ain't hard. Watch em. Donate money. Win auctions or don't, I'm not your dad. Get lucky, lose money, basically Vegas with a terrible video game. But the real prizes are the friends we made along the way. Only you don't remember the friends because yall probably blunk out on booze while watching the stream.
Want to win a thing? Check out the list here: https://desertbus.org/prizes/live
