Campus Crier

I’m doing a Call of Cthulhu seminar on 2015/07/30 04:00 PM in Pennsylvania Stn A, Crowne Plaza. Event: SEM1567753 I and Sandy, amongst others will be on the big Cthulhu panel – Cthulhu All-Stars – at 12pm Saturday in the Paizo seminar room, #203.

[Dan may have solved the connection between Paizo and Cthulhu. The Pathfinder Bestiary 4 has the Big C himself on the cover!]
