Origins will feature a number of discount ribbons this year. All ribbons are $20 (except the Werewolf and Rio Grande ribbon) and can be purchased at the show or during pre-reg. Purchasing a ribbon allows you entry to all events covered by the associated ribbon. You can also get tickets to associated events at no cost. The registration system will automatically discount your event tickets if you purchase the ribbon first then add events to it. Seating for ribboned events are prioritized as follows.
1. Ticket holders (this includes $0 event tickets purchased with a ribbon)
2. People with ribbons (do not need generics or tickets)
3. People with generics
