The Crowne Plaza - Warwick, RI
Download 2013 Program
TempleCon 2013 proved to be the pinnacle of the event's existence, both in terms of attendence and otherwise. With every inch of the Crowne Plaza as TempleCon's domain, the number of scheduled games and events increased by nearly 50% over 2012. Some of the best (and weirdest!) costuming in the history of the convention also made this Biopunk-themed world all the more memorable.
Despite the theme of Biopunk being well off the beaten path, TempleCon 2013 was a very intellectual event in many ways, with panels discussing genetics, DNA ethics, and high-tech body modification. The entertainment also rocked the place to the ground with more live music and DJs than ever commanding the Rotunda, and the nightlife that TempleCon originally envisioned finally began to become a reality. Add to this a full featured classic arcade experience which quickly has become a staple of TempleCon, and after it was all finished, we knew that segwaying into 2014's Cyberpunk theme was a very good idea.
