    SOTACON - Austin
    and why should you be there?


    Shroud of the Avatar Conventions (SotA Cons) are the brainchild of Violation Clauth to bring the Shroud of the Avatar community together on a regional and global scale to facilitate fellowship and interaction among players and between the players and the developers. SOTACON - Austin is an annual @ShroudOfAvatar Convention. Started in 2017, it's the foremost opportunity to interact with SotA Developers & Community Leaders. Based in the beautiful city of Austin, Texas, Portalarium Inc. is the home of the Shroud of the Avatar development team that are quickly being recognized for ground breaking concepts throughout the industry. One of the most notable concepts that Portalarium is known for, is the company's willingness to embrace it's following as peers and value their ideas for development goals. It is considered by many to be a bold step, that all are invited to be a part of in the industry.

    Announcing SOTACON - Austin 2018!

    When: October 11-13, 2018 (Thursday to Saturday)
    Where: Renaissance Austin Hotel, Austin Texas
    Website: https://www.sotaconaustin.org

    Hear ye, hear ye one and all!

    Registration for the Shroud of the Avatar Convention - Austin 2018 is now open! Admission tickets, cloaks, and VIP packages are on sale now at our Eventbrite Site.

    Portalarium is launching Shroud of the Avatar on March 27, 2018 so this is a great year to come to Austin to the Convention! Meet developers and players as we embark together in one of the most successful crowdfunded and player-involved MMORPGs.

    Shroud of the Avatar: Forsaken Virtues is a fantasy RPG that combines a single player narrative with a sandbox MMO created by a team that includes: Richard “Lord British” Garriott the creator of the Ultima series, Starr Long the Director of Ultima Online, and Tracy Hickman the author of Dragonlance. https://www.shroudoftheavatar.com/
    Our second Convention in Austin brings new activities and great opportunities for our attendees and SotA developers. You will experience:
    • A relaxing and social Thursday evening with an icebreaker at a local pub/restaurant.
    • An action-packed Friday with ceremonies, speeches, prizes, panel sessions, group photos, live action role-play (LARP) duels, dinner, and Shakespearean play at Richard Garriott’s Curtain Theatre. (medieval garb encouraged on this day, but not necessary).
    • A convention/business style Saturday with panels, break-out discussions, feedback given directly to the developers, and prizes.
    • A blow-out social Saturday evening with a dance party to include DJ, cosplay, prizes, contests, and stories.
    • A relaxing and open Sunday for guilds, player towns, communities and friends to hold their own activities to enjoy Austin and meet with friends.
    • In addition, a special Thursday afternoon and evening is for our special VIPs to include a Portalarium tour and private reception dinner.


    Your admission ticket price covers many, but not all, of these activities; details are forthcoming as Convention sales get underway (think “stretch goals”).

    Go here to view the Convention schedule (always being updated).

    For plenty of information, go to our website at https://www.sotaconaustin.org.
    To buy cloaks and tickets, go to our Eventbrite Site.

    Thanks for the question! Great idea! We are working on some ideas to help with this. There's a bit of time to make reservations; we want to make this as painless for you and attendees as possible.
