Articles, swag, decorations, and tweets from the Roguelike Celebration on September 17, 2016.
Curious what it was like? Here are stories from people who were there:
Just for fun, we designed badges, pins, t-shirts, and socks for all attendees, along with special t-shirts and challenge coins for speakers. We got to make roguelike fan merchandise!
Badges (and nail art) designed by Danielle Baskin.
Speaker t-shirt designed by Allison Hughes (an audience listening to a speaker), attendee t-shirt designed by Amanda Glosson (with pixelly dungeon creatures and items), and @ symbol socks designed by Allison Hughes. If you want to make custom socks, Sock Fancy does a great job.
We had a table with an altar, potions, unidentified scrolls, oil lamps, comestibles, bones, a candlelabrum with candles, a silver bell, a crystal ball, lizards, leather armor, a wooden flute, amulets, rings, spellbooks, a mirror, tins, a tin opener, and other items from Nethack.
We put up posters with quotes and monsters from Nethack.
People wrote lots of nice tweets with quotes and photos. Here are a few of them!

#roguelikecel gossip: Ken Thompson of unix fame cheated at Rogue— Mouse Reeve (@tripofmice) September 17, 2016
#roguelikecel is a combination of systems design and computational Oulipo conference. Brain already overloaded and we're just hitting lunch.— Kyle Machulis (@qDot) September 17, 2016
Continually surprised how much I can relate to these roguelike devs: guarding against boring optimal strategies, stewardship.. #roguelikecel— Shawn Main (@shawnmain) September 17, 2016
#roguelikecel was awesome and inspiring as a designer. Walked away with a bunch more takeaways for Magic than I had expected.— Shawn Main (@shawnmain) September 18, 2016
#roguelikecel was a totally mind-blowing experience. As close to perfection as possible. I need to cover that in an extensive blog post.— Thomas Biskup (@adom_dev) September 18, 2016
Had such an excellent time at #roguelikecel today! Apologies for all the livetweeting. Feeling very energized. Now to make a RL storygame…— Matthew🦏🔥Balousek (@mrfb) September 18, 2016
