Last Call for Swag Orders

Reminder that swag orders are closing June 9. We will not be selling any swag during Mysterium, so if you want any, you must order it by Sunday.

Also note, there was a mistake on the swag page on our website. It mentioned the shirts are black. That was from copy-pasting the description from last year. The images on the page do show they are light blue but just to clarify in case that wasn’t clear.

Policy Update

There’s a small change to the Conduct section of our policies. Please take a look as it will apply during this year’s Mysterium.

More special guests and this year’s schedule will be announced soon!

March/April Prompt Winners

For the March/April topic of “Memories” we had Talashar’s story “Autumn Winds” https://archiveofourown.org/works/55416358
The visual winner was again redwoodrroad with this excellent image:

a man so blinded by painful memories of the past, by pride and vengeful wrath, he failed to see the life he could lead in the present–
–and the life he could foster for the future.

There’s still plenty of time to submit content for the May/June topic of “Blooming”.

Special guests and schedule announcements coming soon!

Merchandise

Hello again! We have an announcement about this year’s merch!

Merchandise Sales

Seeing as we will be in Canada this year, due to the logistical issues with Customs and taxes we have decided all merchandise sales will be pre-order only. We will not have a swag table during Mysterium and no items may be purchased during the convention. If you want a t-shirt and/or pins, order them before we close online sales.

T-Shirts

We have two excellent designs for this year’s t-shirts. For the front, Kelly “Rayne” Coston provided “Astron”, a gorgeous Dream image from Serenia.
On the back, we have Drew’s transit map of Serenia aka Montreal.

Pins

This year we have three pin designs:

“How do I purchase these awesome items?” you ask. Well, we’ll be opening registration in the next few weeks, and we will include orders for pins and shirts there! We’ll make an announcement when it opens. Plan on late April or early May.
