Multiverse, a brand-new convention for fans of science fiction, fantasy, horror, comics, furry culture, and more, will hold its debut event from October 18th to October 20th in Atlanta, GA.
The convention, located at the Hilton Atlanta Airport, will bring together fans, authors, artists, and other creators, all of whom share a common passion—genre fiction. Attendees can expect sci-fi, fantasy, and horror media, tabletop role-playing games, cosplay, and other beloved staples of “geekery” to feature heavily at Multiverse.
“Panel discussions, a fursuit festival, an art gallery, a gaming hall, and even a charity auction for the nonprofit RAICES—it’s going to be so much fun, truly,” says convention chair Allie Charlesworth. “Whether you love Game of Thrones or Black Panther, the movie Get Out or Dungeons and Dragons or even My Little Pony, this is absolutely your con.”

Update (23 Dec): Crimestrikers has been released.
Crimestrikers, a furry role playing game supplement, is scheduled to be published in November by Spectrum Games.
The game is set on Creaturia, a world of anthropomorphic animals with futuristic technology. The colorful, highly skilled heroes are the best agents of CIPO (Creaturian International Police Organization), who are called into action after the world's most dangerous super-villains escape from the Quarry, a maximum security prison. The Crimestrikers pursue the escapees, including several cunning evildoers who work for the a variety of nefarious groups.
- Outrage - An international crime syndicate whose leader, Vance Coffin, is the Crimestrikers' major enemy.
- PARCH - A terrorist organization that wants to destroy the amphibious humanoid species known as the Hydrerans.
- Emperor Rasavanto - A Hydreran "Warlord of the Seas" who seeks to conquer the surface world.
- The Time Terror Team - Three legendary criminals from Creaturian history brought into the present.
- The Righteous One - A costumed vigilante with sinister motives.
- Steelwing - A bat with cyborg wings who seeks to retake the nation he once ruled as a dictator.
Shiness is a epic fantasy RPG game; its main character and some supporting characters are anthropomorphic, and it has fully animated cutscenes.
Antilia, described by its kickstarter page as "an MMORPG featuring a beautiful world, original races, unique gameplay, and an innovative storytelling system", is produced by Colorado Springs, CO based Right Brain Games. With twelve days to go, this promising-looking furry MMORPG project is in need of funding. The existing version already features an unusually detailed crafting system along with four playable races, combat and magic.
The game contains additional backstory on the Last Res0rt universe, and provides a primer to play as one of six available species (five furry/scaly species, as well as humans), plus supernatural variants such as Djinn, Zombies, Celeste, and – of course – vampires.
The printed version of the game is expected to contain several more pages of content, as well as changes suggested by readers and players.
