The Gentleman’s Art of Backstabbing Kickoff
Join us for a rousing game of Diplomacy which shall be played over the course of the convention. Make new friends, and lose old ones in a strategy game played during the convention. It will require of you cunning, deceit, tactical thinking, and above all, diplomacy. This slight modification of the classic Avalon Hill game includes rules for airships, because what steampunk convention would be complete without them? For those familiar with the game, turn resolution will occur roughly every two hours, during daylight hours.

Welcome to the Symposium Tea Stroll

All along the atrium area of the Symposium hotel, the atrium facing suites will offer attendees their own interpretation on a good old tea party.

Start your stroll at suite 104 for the Temperance Tea Room hosted by our dear Tea Wispfaerie (the instigator and organizer behind this fine special event), and then visit the Steamtopia ambassadors in suite 108. Next is suite 112, the Pandora Parlor, and next door to that have tea with the famous Lord Bobbins of TeslaCon in suite 118. Around the corner is suite 130 where you can get a cuppa with the Symposium’s “Secure-it-Tea,” and then join the Steampunk Chronicles & the Traveling Revelers for a spot of tea dueling in suite 134. Next in line is the Lolita Tea Room in suite 138, and finally, but certainly not least, decorate your tea cup in suite 142 with the Painted Lady Tea Parlour.

Steampunk Cookery
Steampunk began its life as a literary genre, but has grown to be much more than that, now encompassing fashion, interior, and industrial design—indeed, the term is used by some to describe an entire lifestyle, a retro-futuristic approach to living. It follows, then, that food should be a part of the genre, inspired by the past but created for the present. Join Aaron Egan, the Steampunk Chef, for a discussion and demonstration of how to cook Steampunk Food—without ending up on Cake Wrecks.
