The Occult Summit - A OWbN All-Genre Event

Event Description:

"IC Invitation:

We are happy to announce the fourth annual Saint Louis Occult Summit. The Summit is a gathering of scholars, scientists, and lore masters on a variety of strange, rare, and wondrous topics ranging from abyssal geography to psychological alchemy. The Summit is hosted by the Virtual Alexandria Project, a massive umbral library that strives to carefully catalogue, thoroughly protect, and thoughtfully disseminate all the world’s knowledge.

The Summit will be held on the evenings of March 1st and 2nd, 2019 in Saint Louis, Missouri. All are welcome to attend. The event has drawn mages, changelings, wraiths, fallen, garou, fera, night walkers, and many more. And despite the many political, philosophical, and religious perspectives, there has never been any violence or untowards influence upon any of the event’s attendees. We don’t expect this year to be different.

The main focus of the summit is a variety of speakers who take up important topics related to lore and the occult. Past presentations have included: magical theory, high rituals, the Wyrm, night walker enlightenment, will worker therapy sessions, blending magic across supernatural groups, pantemporal computing, the Fimbulwinter, non-telepathic connection of minds, demon hunting, demonic manipulation, being a demon, the Abyss, a how-to primer to the business of the occult, the nature of madness, and many, many more topics. Talks this year will have a similar scope and diversity, and materials logged from past talks can also be made available.

The summit will also include an occult market, magical dueling, wonder-making workshops, virtual reality, code-breaking, scavenger hunts, and riddle deciphering. Many of the sponsored activities may reward their victors with copies of tomes straight from the library itself.

The Occult Summit is a mutually supported event.

We ask that all participants contribute in some way to the event.

Our three standard methods of contribution include:

Presenting – Give a talk! Teach people what you know! The top speaker will win 30 quintessence.
Volunteering – There are various volunteer opportunities from OOC sign-in duties to IC security.
Donating – The event is sponsored by the Virtual Alexandria Project, but we also ask our participants to make a financial or magical donation. A common financial donation has been $30,000 or five measures of magical energies (such as quintessence, gnosis, pathos, glamour, or willpower).

For those unable to contribute, please register and come anyway. Various sponsors will be donating to support the costs of your entry.

NPC Duty

The Shadows of Saint Louis staff has countless NPCs available for the summit. Do you know someone who’d maybe like to do but doesn’t have a character, doesn’t want to go with any of their characters, or doesn’t even LARP? Those performing NPC duty will be offered a reduced cost of admission or waived admission in exchange for their (greatly appreciated) services. Contact the Shadows of Saint Louis staff if you are interested or know someone who is.
