Announcing the Mysterium Hotel

Shorah All

At long last, we are ready to announce the hotel for Mysterium 2015!

I apologize for the long wait. This time around it ended up taking much longer than usual to secure a hotel with the rates that we all expect at Mysterium. But in the end, we managed to get a very nice hotel!

The hotel for Mysterium 2015 will be the Boston Marriott Burlington. We’ve negotiated a room rate of $115/night for a room with two queen beds. As always, the convention itself will take place in one of the hotel’s large meeting spaces on the first floor.

To book your room, and to see other information about the location and the hotel, please check out our Location page. We recommend reserving early, to make sure you get a room. And don’t forget to register for the weekend and buy a t-shirt here.

I also want to remind everyone that we are currently accepting submissions for events, as well as for the convention book.

As always, if you have any questions, comments, friendly jabs, or good baking recipes, please feel free to contact us.

Until next time,
-Taniith, Mysterium 2015 Chair

Hotel, Registration, and T-Shirts, Oh My!

Shorah Myst fans!

It’s been a little while since our last update, but that doesn’t mean we haven’t been busy behind the scenes. In fact, we’ve got four big announcements for you today!

Hotel Reservations Open

We’re pleased to announce that we will be returning to the Comfort Inn University District hotel next year. The Comfort Inn was our gracious host in 2009, and we’re looking forward to seeing you all there again. We have a limited number of rooms available for $89.95/night, so get your reservations in now! See our Location page for more details.

Pre-Registration Open

Why not register to attend the convention while you’re booking your hotel room? That’s right, pre-registration is open! Weekend registration is $25 per person, which includes a convention book and a couple of extra goodies. Pre-registration closes on July 4th, 2014, but why wait? Register now!

Logos for 2014

We are absolutely thrilled to announce the winner of this year’s logo contest: Jeston Tigchon! He submitted a marvelous proposal for both the front and back designs that celebrates our 15th anniversary and our Rivenese theme this year, and it completely blew us away. Here’s the back:

Mysterium '14 Logo

Mysterium ’14 Logo

 

And here are the five front designs!

All of which leads us to our next announcement…

T-shirts Available for Pre-Order

Jeston’s amazing artwork is now available for pre-order in shirt form, and there’s an added bonus: you can pick which design will go on the front of your shirt! Yes, you can get any one of the front logo designs mentioned earlier on your Mysterium 2014 t-shirt (pre-order quantities permitting, see the link below for more information). If you can’t decide, we’ve got you covered with a 5-pack of shirts at a $10 discount versus buying them separately.

This year is pretty important to us, and we want to make sure that everyone who’s ever been a part of Mysterium can have a chance to pick up a 15th anniversary t-shirt. Now, even if you can’t make it to Mysterium in 2014, you can pre-order a shirt to commemorate 15 years of fun, friends, and community hijinx.

T-shirts are available in sizes from Small to 3XL, and for the first time, we’re also pleased to announce that we’re offering them in a women’s cut as well! For more information about pre-ordering, please visit check out our t-shirt information page.

More to Come

That’s all we have for now, but we hope it was worth the wait! We’ll have more announcements coming in the next few months as we get closer to convention weekend.
