Calling all BioWare Fans and Community Supporters!

You may or may not personally know the inimitable :iconrihouston: as our esteemed Admin of a few little Bioware groups on deviantArt such as:

:iconbiowaremensclub: :iconthecullenclub: or our own :iconbiowarefanclub:

But did you know she is also a co-chair for the up and coming Magic City Con? Thanks to her hard work and passion, there are going to be more than a few BioWare guests and events of note featured at the con! Show your support and help her get the word out on this brand new fan convention that will be unleashing some seriously awesome Bioware panels in the lovely town of Birmingham, Alabama!

After all, who better than memorable heavyweights like Jennifer Hale (Mass Effect's definitive Commander Shepard and Dragon Age Inquisition's Krem Aclassi), Greg Ellis (Dragon Age: Awakening's Anders and Dragon Age's Commander Cullen), and Steve Blum (Dragon Age's Oghren and Mass Effect's Grunt), to share the love and talk about their experiences with BioWare?

Of course, that's not all the Con is about. Magic City Con represents a large spectrum of fandoms, with focus on cosplay, sci-fi, as well as our beloved video games. Attendees and guests can also expect to be wowed with panels like the Star Wars Rebels discussion featuring the newest voices of Disney's foray into the Star Wars universe discussing its success.

"Our convention has a lot of featured guests and groups coming like Ghost Hunt Weekends who occasionally have the Ghost Hunters (from the popular TV series) come along on their weekend hunts.  They will talk about how they hunt down ghosts, let people get a hands on demonstration of their equipment, and even take a few brave souls spirited enough to go out with them to a haunted location with them for a mini hunt event just for Magic City Con!  

We also have the Alabama Ghostbusters cosplay group on hand who will be sure that our convention stays ghost free.  The 501st's Alabama Garrison will be on hand with a Tatooine display and will have games for our guests to enjoy throughout the weekend involving blasting troopers and maybe even a Rebel hunt!  

Love zombies?  We have our own homegrown Jasper, Alabama Thr33 Days Dead cast and crew on hand to talk about what it takes to make a zombie movie in a rural town.  They were featured in their own reality show on Scy-fy's 'Town of the Living Dead'."

And this isn't all! Still more activities are being added so shimmy over to the website for VIP attendees as well as general admission contests throughout the weekend. All upcoming and newly added events will be featured on so keep checking in for more!

Even if you aren't able to attend, consider the impact you have just by letting people know about it! Boost support of our fellow BioWare and gaming fans on Facebook: as well as on Twitter @ALMagicCityCon. Signal boosting, liking the page, retweets, and suggestions are all greatly appreciated! Magic City Con is all about community, both locally and online, and "we want to bring everyone together to meet, have fun, and to enjoy an event filled weekend with things we all love to geek out about."

Inspiring and helping each other out is what makes our fandom a particularly wonderful community to be a part of. I hope that this tradition continues on and offline. Hope to see you there!

Illustrated Art Submission GuidelinesOk. We get it that you’re busy. And maybe don’t have a lot of time to read. But here at the club, we’re trying to keep up with our motto to collect the best of the best by fans, for fans, you know? So we gotta have standards. Yup, standards. And we’re not trying to say you shouldn’t submit anything just because you’re not a pro. But we do want to see the best of what you’ve got when you submit!
To make things easy, we’ve updating our posting guidelines here with pictures! You’ll probably still want to read our full guidelines if you’re a rules stickler (and also if you get declined) but we’ll go over the basics.
The number one and most important rule: The BioWare Fan Club will only accept FAN created work fully done by you, digitally or traditionally. We’re not picky about whether you drew it by hand or as a photo-manipulation, but it does need to show EFFORT and it needs to be r

It's always sad to get a rejection in your inbox, and we don't like giving them out, either.

BioWare Fan Club ValuesHi folks!  There has been a some debate about copyright issues in association with fanart on the BioWare communities lately. Without naming any names, I want to set folks straight on what we do and do not allow as a fan community, and how to protect yourself as a fan writer and artist.
Our humble BioWare Fan Club began as a handful of fans who really loved all things BioWare. We just wanted to have a place to share our fan created artworks and stories. It’s been amazing that we have since grown into a real community with hundreds of members. Wow.
As a club, we don't claim credit for creating the worlds or the characters, and do not try to profit commercially from our works. The joy of having a fan community is to be able to share, and indulge in your love of a shared universe. I very much want to keep the BioWare Fan Club as a SAFE place to share and express our mutual appreciation of BioWare works. Please join me in keeping it positive.
We’re a Fan Comm

Hi. An Instagram account (called "mass_effect_lovers" can be found here:… ) has been reposting a bunch of Mass Effect fanart without any credit (she credit ONE of them as far as I've seen).
I've asked them (well, it's a her) to credit -politely- and they just deleted my comment. I recognized a bunch of works from DA, though can't remember the names, a lot I didn't though cause I'm not really active in the fandom (or DA, recently.

I know some artists don't care about receiving credit etc. But I think people should know about what's going on.

Maybe the group could post a journal about this? Or whoever is reading this post a journal to your friends? or go directly to the artists she's taken art from and alert them? Just any help really.
She's gonna keep doing it to other artists.... maybe if a lot of her posts are reported, she gets banned, or something. I never said another word to her cause she can just block me (and she hasn't taken anything of mine), then I wouldn't be able to even see her account. So the best way would be to report each post.

Reporting copyright infringement on Instagram is kinda annoying, but it's not too hard and you don't need an Instagram account.
I posted about this on a ME group but I guess people don't care. I'm trying a second time but I guess if no one bothers so I'll just leave it alone and keep an eye on her in case she takes something of mine. Finding all the original art is hard because they're so many, it would be easier if people who are active on the fandom can recognize the owners of the pictures and report them.

I am writing a Mass Effect Fan-fiction. I started with one and am about to finish it up. I plan to go all the way through to 3. Might even go a little further. I was wondering if I could submit it to this group? If so, which folder would you like me to put it in?
