Our second MegaCon Mini looks at the biggest growing megagaming trend of the past year – online megagames!

Kurt LaRue of Splintered Realities will be speaking about his experience of running the ever popular Den of Wolves online after the pandemic struck.

Our second speaker, Joe Morris, works for the British Civil Service and takes part in their Wargaming Network. He will talk about the technical implementation of Discord bots and how they’ve helped run games he’s be involved with.

Afterwards, MegaCon’s BeckyBecky will host a short Q&A for both speakers, so make sure to turn up with plenty of questions about running online megagames. As always, #the-pub in the MegaCon Discord server will be open after the event for further discussion.
