Wyrd Con is an Interactive Storytelling Convention located in the United States. Interactive Storytelling is the concept where the audience and actors are both part of the performance. Participatory events are run throughout the conference to encourage both exploration and immersive play, including but not limited to Live Action Role Playing (LARP), Alternate Reality Games (ARG), Live Simulations and other innovative Transmedia experiences. The conference provides a fun opportunity to engage in all aspects of the cross-platform storytelling within and beyond the live roleplaying realm.

Convention Tips

  • Apply Jakob Nielsen's usability guidelines. See also: Web Pages That Suck and Steve Krug's Don't Make Me Think.
  • Be specific when telling people what's been updated on your web site. "Website updated" is useless info to most.
  • Do not "auto-play" audio on your site. Co-workers don't need to know my plans for SUNDAY! SUNDAY! SUNDAY!
  • Provide PDF files for documents that should be printed: registration forms, mailed documents, flyers, etc.
  • It isn't the Internet that's killing cons. BlizzCon (a con dedicated to a MMORPG) had 35,000 people attend in '08.
