Excellent statement. Well done. Some people will complain about 'virtue signalling' but I can't see any way that key cultural or industrial organistions pointing out that bad things are bad should be seen as a bad thing. Remaining silent only isolates those who need support. Good on you.

We realize that it can be difficult to know what to do, or where to start. Given what brings us all together, the following short list of powerful and diverse voices in science-fiction/fantasy is a good place to seek different perspectives: The Ballad of Black Tom - Victor LaValle Black Leopard Red Wolf – Marlon James The Black Tides of Heaven – JY Neon Yang Broken Earth series – N.K. Jemisin Centenal Cycle Trilogy - Malka Older Who Fears Death - Nnedi Okorafor

I love this. I love everything about the message you have posted here. Adepticon is literally my favorite event of the year and when it was cancelled this year, I felt like Christmas was cancelled. It's my favorite event because of the level of inclusion and family atmosphere that it has generated over the last 9 years I have attended. I know we can always count on the staff and volunteers at Adepticon to focus on ensuring that EVERYONE has a great experience at their event. I would love to say I have some great ideas for you, but I don't. I think my best suggestion would be "Keep doing what you are doing." I know the level of thought, detail, and effort that goes into this event and the community it supports and I couldn't be prouder to be a part of it. I cannot wait to be with my entire community-family again in 2021. It will be better than ever with you folks at the helm.

'But where words might fall short, failing to offer them is far worse.' You can accuse orgs or companies of virtue signalling by saying things that should be obvious, but even if we're cynical and decide that's what they're doing, it is still better than being silent. It is still better than standing aside and letting someone else be hurt or diminished or excluded for being who they are.

I’m so proud of you guys at Adepticon! Thank you for speaking up and taking a stand 💖💖💖 #blacklivesmatter

Thank you AdeptiCon for being the folks you are. Don’t ever change.

I mean I can remain quiet it's my right to as well I don't bring my political beliefs into a game. I use the game to escape reality and have fun.

Thank you guys for taking a solid and clear stance not just for the gaming community but for our entire country. This is a great example of why Adepticon is always on my list of cons to attend a year

This is how it's done. It's still corporate virtue signaling, which I have my reservations about, but this is doing it right. A call to learn and grow, to come together and share, to be a community and remain understanding of differing beliefs. No divisive statements, no agree or get out, just a call to come together. Good on yall.

I can't wait to come next year to my first Adepticon knowing that I'll be accepted <3

For those who equate the ideal of equality and just treatment under the law with “politics”, what do you mean by that? If your political beliefs don’t include the idea that everyone, regardless of race, should be treated equally then how is that any different from being a racist? (Hint, it’s not)

And what steps are you taking to back up these words? What will you be doing besides posting a jpg to facebook?

Ya ya and posting this shit is doing NOTHING but widening the dividine in our country. If we keep treating people like "black" people then we will alwsys have racism dont be a lemming

On one hand, I agree with the message, but on the other, I feel like this is long overdue and done for convenience rather than conviction. Just my opinion.

Glad to see the support for all gamers!

Tell me about it.. This should've been said way before this point!

Well said. Be open and be teachable. Can’t wait for next years convention

Adepticon the organization made the right statement. Adepticon the community still has a long way to go to show that tournaments aren't a cesspit of toxic sociopaths.

“Virtue Signaling” is such a lazy phrase. It’s a shallow person’s attempt to counter an argument they don’t actually have an answer to.

Well put

Its unfortunate that the universal issue of police militarization and abuse has been turned into a niche crusade for one race. It's even more unfortunate that EVERYTHING, including a gaming convention for playing with toy soldiers, needs to be used as a political platform.

❤️

I believed in you guys. I encouraged you at the Adepticon. Now you respond with this I quit. You don't even care

Warhammer 40,000 Preview in 2 Days...

While we are all still lamenting not being able to see this Preview, originally planned for AdeptiCon 2020, in person, you can still get a virtual sneak peek at the future of Warhammer 40,000 this Saturday. Life (or in this case Games Workshop), finds a way, as Ian Malcolm would happily tell you. This should be an epic reveal and not something you'd want to miss or, frankly, hear about a few hours later from someone on the social media. So tune in at 2PM BST (my computer tells me that's 8:00 AM in Chicago- standard Earth time). Come see if the future is as grim and dark as we hope...

AdeptiCon Update

First and foremost, we hope everyone is staying safe and healthy. It bears repeating that no one felt the loss of this year’s convention more deeply than the AdeptiCon staff and crew. We miss seeing all of you and look forward to the time we can once again share our hobby together in person. The community has come together over the last couple months in ways we haven’t seen before and it has been heartening.

We wanted to provide you with an update on the status of our shipping operations. We recently received the last of the Swag Bag components, many having been delayed for obvious reasons. The next step will be putting those components together and packaging them. We took some steps this weekend to get that process started. Unfortunately, as is the case across the nation, Illinois remains under a shelter-in-place order and large groups of people are limited in meeting. This makes organizing and packing the Swag Bags more challenging and time-consuming.

We expect shipping to start, in general, in early June. We may be able to start some shipping sooner, but the situation remains fluid and complex. The shipping will start with the VIG material, then t-shirts and hoodies. But over the next 30-45 days, we expect to have had made substantial progress in fulfilling every order.

Thank you and stay safe,

The AdeptiCon Staff

Thank you so much! For everything you all do. Stay safe and see you next year

So, kinda super bummed looking between the two types of loot. The VIG bag is roughly the equivalent of a regular premium bag last year. They got the awesome Adepticon bag, GW mini and books, boxed game, and so on. VIG:

We got ours today! The cat says “thank you for the crinkle paper”

I got my stuff today but was missing one of my shirts

Got notice yesterday that my stuff will arrive today. You guys and gals are awesome. I look forward to seeing you all next year.

So huge surprise today! I got a UPS tracking number! Thank you to the staff and volunteers for all the hard work! Very excited!

I got the shipping notification a couple days ago, I'm really excited to check it out.

Got the shipment! Thanks for all your efforts and continue to stay safe!

My loot arrived

Arrived today! Thanks for working to get these sent out. Some very neat things as always. And I look forward to wearing my Adepticon 2020 shirt to the next game night.

thank you for the clear update! im sure everyone appreciates the efforts you're pumping forward 🙂

I was looking towards this all years, bought and painted a new army just for it. Thanks for all the hard work and better luck next year! I'm for sure going to do the best i can to support you in the next upcoming years.

Stay safe and take care! But you guys are going above and beyond what’s expected. Thank you for your dedication!

Stay safe, and thank you for the hard work and dedication.

Thank you all for your dedication and hard work. Stay safe, our toys will come eventually! Thanks for the update!

Thanks for the update. Keep everyone safe first and thanks for all your work during this time!

Thank you for the update, you guys stay safe as well.

Thanks y'all, keep safe and look forward to seeing everyone next year!

Compare to the new premium bag, which is something I'd honestly expect from a small convention, not the magnificence that is Adepticon. I do understand covid was a dick this year, but you can't tell me there were not at least enough bags for everyone to get one. Some other standards that were missing were the Malifaux fig and GW fig, and boxed game. Ho hey. Premium bag:

I have changed my travel plans in the last few years so I can be there on Wednesday night and help with those, it’s a fun time. Thanks guys and stay safe!

Guys. Take your time! We appreciate all the hard work you do and we fully understand how difficult this must be. Stay safe over everything!

Good to see the boys working hard! Take care, and as always, THANK YOU.

Will we receive a notification of shipping email? I’ve lived in perpetual anxiety since the survey

I assume this process is still underway as we are just under 45 days yet?

You guys rock and please stay safe.

This model looks strange like his arms are to high for his body or his heads to low.

So small question before I go try to buy one of these I was one of the lucky ones for a VIG. Is this guy in that bag and follow up do you guys know when it might go out?

Has anyone seen them say what the preview event model was going to be yet?

Is the sister of battle model included in the VIG bag? Or should I pick her up separately?

Well either neither have been made available to order yet or the link to do so is bad

Since I couldn't travel to adepticon I am really thinking of getting this model.

His arms are sprouting from his head...

Why are his arms coming out of his ears?

Hey guys, I just got my ViG box today & did not receive this guy, is there a reason for that?

Picked up some of their bases at last year's Adepticon, really love the detail on them! Was looking forward to see if I could win another base from the gumball machine this year...

Best bases and basing supplies around - and a pretty good value to boot! (even before the discount code). I stock up every year at adepticon! Thanks guys!! 🙂
