If you like your ears pointy and your outfits steampunk-y, Mesa is hosting the perfect convention for you next month.
Gathering the valley’s role-playing, steampunk, and all-around fantasy nerds, DarkCon 2012 is happening in January 2012.
In addition to hosting workshops, gaming, and even LARPing, they’ll be hosting some guests of honor including: Jacqueline Carey, Doug Jones, Meg Foster, Bill Myer, Ruth Thompson, and John Wick & Ken St Andre.
- Going down on Jan 12th – 15th.
- At The Phoenix Marriott in Mesa.
- Attendance is limited to 1,200 – so get your tickets here.
- They’re $40 until the end of the year, and $50 at the door.
- (Group rates are also available. Just email them.)
- Like them on Facebook to stay up to date.
I’m sure costumes will abound, so I recommend gobbling up as much as you can from Evermore Nevermore before they close this Friday.
And if like this whole gritty-fantasy-steampunk flavor, the convention is hosted by the local fantasy group The Dark Ones, who you may want to check out.
