Given the new guidelines put out by the Government of Quebec due to the new Omicron variant, we regret to announce that the 2022 edition of the Draconis Festival will be held online again on our Discord server February 25th to 27th and not at the CEGEP du Vieux Montreal as was initially announced. The health of our attendees is obviously the most important consideration and it would be irresponsible of us to stubbornly hold the event in person.
That said, we’ll do all we can to make the festival as successful as it was last year, by using the advantages of the digital medium as much as possible. This will include seeking participants who wouldn’t have been able to attend in Montreal, including those elsewhere in Quebec, Europe, or anywhere else in the world, and by offering a series of fascinating panels. We will also reintroduce time slots intended for those in Europe (and for those in Eastern Time willing to wake up at 4:00 am…).
Obviously, there will be many roleplaying games available. There will also be the usual tracks of live-action games and discussion panels (which will be live on Twitch and posted on YouTube later). And of course, multiple channels acting as a virtual dealers room and RPG creators meeting area.
- December 1st 2021 to January 29th 2022: Game submissions
- January 9: Virtual kiosks
- January 16: Panel submission
- January 27th: The 2022 Draconis Jam!
- February 1st: Registration to games (link to come)
As always, we want to highlight the work of game creators from Quebec. We are open to suggestions on ways to help our local talent.
We also invite local streamers and podcasters to broadcast their content from the festival, actual play or other formats.
Even though the festival is online, we still need volunteers to run the festival. In particular, we need help for streaming on Twitch and moderating the server.
