I’m a little rusty, but if I’m not mistaken, I believe “”Ph’nglui mglw’nafh Cthulhu R’lyeh wgah’nagl fhtagn” roughly translates to “Cthulu’s milkshake brings all the nerds to Tempe.”
Something like that anyway.
Regardless, next month’s MythosCon promises to gather and entertain the darkest of fantasy geeks – and a few lucky attendees may even be driven insane with forbidden knowledge!
Centered around the mythos built by the belov(craft)ed dark-fantasy author HP Lovecraft (sorry, I had to), the con will bring together Cthulu-ian movers & shakers (including Adam Niswander), seasoned local fans, and what I’ll refer to as the “Cthulu-curious.”
Amongst the con’s cyclopian landscape will be gaming, art, and many, many discussion panels digging into every guilty question you could seem to think of regarding Lovecraft and his cosmos.
The unbelievably horrifying details:
- January 6th through the 9th.
- At the Mission Palms Hotel & Convention Center, in Tempe.
- Membership isn’t for the faint of heart, starting at $100.
- Or, if you just want roll the ol’ Cthulu-Dice around, gaming-only is $25.
- Get ticket info here.
Looking over the con’s schedule, I can’t tell how serious these guys are. The con director refers to himself as the “high priest” and they appear to have scheduled Cthulu “prayer services.”
I’ll go ahead and assume it’s all in good fun.
Until then… Baby Cthulhu!
