TECHNICOLOR DREAMS 2013: Portland's Hottest and Chillest Gaming Convention!

Play Out Loud proudly presents...

Technicolor Dreams 2013:
Spontaneous shared stories told together!

Technicolor Dreams is bigger, better and badder than it was last year! Now we have two days for exploring alternative story mediums and creating stories spontaneously through play. Get ready to dive deep, do something new, and blow your mind into a whole new plane of consciousness!

You will find all kinds of non-digital, in-person group games centered around a shared storytelling experience. This includes mostly story games and theater games along the lines of indie role-playing games and jeepform, but you will also find pervasive games and even old school role-playing games thrown into the mix. But you don’t need to know a thing about any of it. Each activity is suitable for beginners and newcomers from all walks of life. All you need to do is show up with the willingness to try something new and see where it takes you.

This is what all this awesome is going to cost you.
Sat + Sun $15
Sat Only $10
Sun Only $8

You can pay at the door or in advance. Links coming soon!

But, if this would be a burden for you, all you have to do is write to Hans or Tayler at [masked] and tell us about it. We can go from there.

Along those lines, you are more than welcome to help pay somebody else’s way by chipping in a little extra.

For your convenience, the event is broken up into slots, with breaks for lunch and dinner:

Saturday 9/21
9am - 1pm
2pm - 6pm
8pm - 12pm

Sunday 9/22
10am - 2pm
3pm - 7pm

When you arrive, there will be sign up sheets for different activities for each slot. Just sign up and you are good to go! There will be no pre-registration for activities.

As details about specific games come in we’ll post about them so you can salivate all the while. Please keep in mind that as things come into focus the details may change just a bit. So stay tuned!

EXPLORE, ENRICH, ENJOY!

A few things to keep in mind as you have the time of your life:

Mind the neighbors. Quiet hours are 10pm - 7am. Just don’t make a ruckus outside and you’ve got nothing to worry about.

We can have alcohol in this space, but a Portland Abbey Arts staff member has to open it, and they have to charge a small opening fee.

There are kitchens and we can use them!

You are expected to clean up after yourself everywhere and always. Especially in the kitchen.

People of all experience levels, ethnicities, races, creeds, ages, body types, sexual orientations and gender identities are welcome. We are committed to providing a safe and friendly environment for all participants, and we expect everybody to uphold these values.

We will be accepting donations for next year’s event if you feel so inclined to make such a contribution.

      Just found out that I will be able to make it with the changed date! Is there any chance that Montsegur 1244 will join the games list? I'm still dying to play it.

We're getting a dinner happening for Saturday, too, but in order to partake in that meal it will cost you an extra $5 on top of admission. Breakfast and lunch will be included in the cost of admission. Stay tuned for more details regarding the menu!
