Steampunk-Flavored Noir
Steampunk-Flavored Noir

While you're working on costumes, panel ideas, and game scenarios, think about steampunk-flavored noir (noir-punk?), golden age comics, rebirth, re-invention, hardboiled detective stories, organized crime, and international spies. Maybe watch Casablanca, Sin City, the Incredibles, Indiana Jones, and read some Dick Tracy to get in the mood. We’re thinking of a gritty, noir-filled era ranging from very late steampunk to World War 2.

MisCon is Moving Downtown

To put it plainly, we’ve outgrown Ruby’s, and are thrilled to announce that MisCon is moving downtown in 2016!

This isn’t to say that leaving Ruby’s isn’t bittersweet for us all. Of course it is. Everyone knows we love Ruby’s. They’ve done so many great things for MisCon over the past fifteen years, that we wish we didn’t have to leave. But as MisCon continues to grow, we’re putting an increasingly bigger burden on the hotel (by converting private rooms into programming, gaming, and merchant rooms and by filling every spare inch of the place with some sort of convention activity).

The more immediate problem this year is the massive loss of parking where Joker’s Wild (and the vacant lot beyond it) used to be. If we stayed at Ruby’s, we’d be forced to work out some kind of shuttle system. We don’t think a shuttle would be good for the convention.

We’re sad to leave Ruby’s, but we’re excited to bring MisCon to the Holiday Inn Missoula Downtown.

It sits in the heart of downtown Missoula along the Clark Fork River, adjacent to Bess Reed Park, Caras Park, a ton of great restaurants, bars, a couple distilleries, the university, the Hip Strip, and just about everything else that gives Missoula its fun and interesting vibe. We’re losing the creekside at Ruby’s, but we’re gaining a river.

Ruby’s has already cancelled all MisCon reservations, so you don’t need to call and cancel.

The Holiday Inn features 3 stories of rooms that wrap around a 5-storey indoor atrium. The atrium will be the central hub of the convention (with gaming tables, merchants, and a hangout area), so if you pick an atrium-facing room, you’ll have a small balcony and can see what’s happening.

Pre-Registration is Now Open!

Are you so excited for MisCon that you just need to register right this very instant? Well now you can! Just follow the link above this text to the registration page and you can get registered for MisCon 30.
