I don't think it would be wise to cancel the appearance of one and not the other.

Did a quick scan of Events looking for “Satine” - and so far, at least, none of her events appear to have sold out and many of them are very undersold - some don’t appear to have met the “minimum” attendees listed.

We’ll see.

After reading some of the horror stories, I hope her star has finally burnt out.  She and her partner have behaved awfully towards other members of our community.  Their inflated sense of their own worth, the gaslighting, the non-apology…  The best thing the community can do is vote with their dollars and not support her or her partner’s events, books, games, etc.

I’m not a fan of Critical Role - but that is a group that can offer a master class on how to approach fame with humility and grace.  Outside of the Tiberius dude from their first season - who was fairly quickly removed from / or stepped away from the cast - I’ve never heard or seen Matt Mercer or the members of the Critical Role cast behave badly towards their partners and fans.  I’m not a fan of their work - but I am a fan of them as people and as community representatives.

Before this controversy, they were completely sold out. Many have canceled.

That's great to hear. Hopefully it will continue to trend in that direction.

Looks like Satine Phoenix's events have all been cancelled. At least, nothing comes up when typing "Satine" into the event search bar, and the change list website listed five or six events bearing her name as cancelled.

I really hope that was GenCon taking the necessary steps and not them advising Satine to cancel her events due to "safety" reasons. Looking on the megathread on Friday a couple discord channels were deleted "to stop gossip" AKA S/J posted messages of future support when this "blows over" from a number of companies/sponsors as a rally the troops/weather the storm kind of moral boost, which I really hope is fake... but money+viability=profit.

According to Satine Phoenix's Twitter feed, updated on June 24, she stated, "For the safety of myself and my family, I will not be attending GenCon.  We will be reaching out to everyone who has signed up for events.  Thank you." 

She's also locked the thread to replies.

Safety reasons? 

Are there people actually making death threats on this? Or is that a PR move?

Maybe Gen Con'll have an official statement on the situation before the convention?
