Tentacles Deja Vu is booked out and the registration deadline has passed. It is less then 2 weeks until we will evoke precious memories of this event! So start gathering all your stuff in a dark corner of your habitat so nothing evil is left behind.

Our Immortal Heroes are eager for their dose of horrible Tentacles Jetlag(TM), the programme and games sprawl on the website, foul air is being bloated into the weary tires of the Tentacles Shuttle Bus, bold German Beer Bottles shuffle in line to be the 1st placed into the cold by experienced, well-trained, gentle German hands, all locals are chased out of the OLAK (Only Local Area Kebab) and Bacharach is shutting its doors and windows. All the ancient Tentacles are moving with horrible experience and cruel speed in aeons-old patterns to raise:

We have been successful at digging up a worthy corpse to represent Sandy Petersen this year! Mr. Mike Mason himself has been reanimated for this very reason. He even looks like Sandy!

'A Thing Well Done' is a Glorantha FreeForm by Alison Place and Ian Gorlick, 'A Night at the Opera' a classic Cthulhu FreeForm and perfect Deja Vu event by Sandy Petersen directed by Mike Mason and 'The Infoshrine FreeForm' by Pummel will give you an unholy insight into the wheelings and dealings behind a Tentacles Convention. On top of that we could reanimate the Pendragon FreeForm 'Royal Fair, Royal Fear'! Horray!
