Make a clean sweep fore and aft, brace the mizen and set out the boarding netting for Wonder Northwest is luffing up on the larboard quarter! That is a call that should set your feet aflitter for there is naught else that celebrates all that is geek like this event..

Returning for the second, year Wonder Northwest brings together the best of all things popular culture and puts it in one place. Come out to see guests such as the Doubleclicks, the Alter Egos Society, Robot Uprise, Atomic Arts, PDXYAR and many more over the course this Saturday and Sunday. There will be panels and workshops, vendor booths, live music, a costume contest, a film festival and even Geeklesque!

All of this, and more, for the ridiculously low price of $8 per day or $15 for the weekend.

The Swashbucklers of Stumptown, PDXYAR, will be on hand once again this year to insure the pirating subculture is properly represented. We will be engaging in mock combat performances, performing shanties and manning the PDXYAR booth where you can acquire fine wares from our mates at Forge & Thistle. If that wasn’t enough to keep us busy, we are also putting on a panel!

Perhaps panel is a misleading term. What we are putting together is more of an interactive panel workshop. Presented on Sunday at 2pm, Under the Black Flag: Welcome Aboard El Tiburon! is both both a living history discussion and an interactive role playing game. Attendees are welcomed to “join the crew” of El Tiburon and will be given a simple mission to go along with learning the tasks and challenges of sailing the vessel. Functioning very much like a “choose your own adventure” story, you will be able to learn the duties of officers, as well as the common daily tasks of the crew, aboard 17th century tall ship through example and hands-on role play.
