15 Weeks Until Symposium 2022

Posted on Posted in Symposium Update

15 WEEKS left until Steampunk Symposium 2022, the immersive convention that places YOU center stage of the action. Will you be the hero to solve the Mystery of the Gold Rush Ghouls? Will you win prizes and glory in the Steampunk Olympiad? Will you be able to choose what to do from the ever expanding schedule that awaits you this March? Whatever you do, we know that it’s going to be an unforgettable experience!


An Immersive Experience

Over the weekend of Steampunk Symposium, we challenge you to play a game that is part murder mystery, part escape the room, part live role play, and all fun. We can’t give details of the story at this time, but we can share the basic outline of what to expect.

During Opening Ceremonies a mystery will be revealed, and for those willing to take on the role of investigator a series of puzzles and clues will lead you through adventure to solve the mystery.

Most of the detective work will occur on the Saturday of the convention in a series of chapters that take you deeper and deeper into the storyline. Some clues will be posted throughout the convention space, and some clues will lead you find a variety of characters from whom you will get even more clues to help you move toward the right answers.

Saturday night, and Sunday morning, investigators can submit their findings to the Arbiter (Games Master). Investigators with the correct answers will be entered into a drawing to win prizes, and will be invited to come up on the stage during Closing Ceremonies to reveal the answers to the mystery.
