Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Baltimore Science Fiction Society has canceled the regular Balticon 54. In its place, Maryland regional science fiction and fantasy convention will host a Virtual Balticon on May 22-25, 2020.
The event will include panels, presentations, and readings hosted as webinars. There will be music concerts streamed live and open Filking hosted through an online platform.
They will have watch parties of past presentations at Balticon and discussions with presenters on the BSFS Discord Server. Watch parties will also include TV shows, movies, and anime through streaming services, along with discussions.
Additional events include online tabletop RPGs and board games, links to online stores for dealers and artists will be available, and they will have an open conversation on the BSFS Discord Served in a Balticon Second Life Region.
Balticon is looking for individuals who would be interested in running an RPG/board/party game at Virtual Balticon. Those interested should email firstname.lastname@example.org.
