This weekend, Arizona “abides,” plays Iconica, watches anime, and meets Mr Eragon himself.

As you awake from last weekend’s food coma, you find yourself in a large but populated desert.

“Many adventures lay before you,” cackles a mysterious, eight-armed figure. (Your party’s magic-user detects he is a low-level blogger.)

“Here is this week’s list of Arizona geek action… Choose your path!”
