Konline is a fantasy/sci-fi convention that’s held completely online. There are lectures, readings, discussion panels and even ttrpg sessions, all available on the ‘net.
Do you need to buy a ticket?
No, entry is completely free – you only need a computer and Internet access (and if you want to take part in a ttrpg session, you might need a microphone and a webcam, depending on the GM’s preference).
We’ll publish it soon on the webpage. The links will replace the ones used for programme submissions.
Lectures and similar will be on 8x8 meet – the links will be posted on discord before the start of each session. Some of the lectures will also be available in streaming on Facebook – depending on the presenter. Ttrpg sessions will take place on platforms chosen by the GMs. We’re trying to pick the tools that don’t require installing additional software, so a decently up-to-date browser should be enough.
In the system we’re using for signing up for the sessions you’ll see the GMs nicknames, and on the discord there’s a channel called #rpg-info. That’s where you can find your GM and together you’ll move on to another communication channel (if you have any technical issues, #rpg-info will be there to help).
In the sign-up system you’ll see the nicknames of all of the session’s participants. At the given hour just ping them on the #rpg-info channel, and if you have any problems, ask one of our helpers for assistance.
It’s up to the GM: it could be discord (their own, or a channel on our convention discord), meet.google.com (we can set up a channel), roll20, or meet.jit.si.
Do I need a microphone if I want to listen to a lecture?
No, you can always ask a question through the text chat.
Can I join a lecture after it’s already started?
Yes, just don’t disturb other listeners. For obvious reasons we’re using tools geared towards multi-person meetings, so constant joining and leaving lectures can slightly impede their functioning.
I need help, where can I get it?
On the discord you’ll find a channel called #punkt-info, that’s where you can ask for help. If the issue concerns a ttrpg session, ask at #rpg-info. There’s also the open channel #orgroom, if you feel you need to contact the organisers directly – but please don’t overuse it.
