?GUESTS ON BOARD?
Hired for their brawn, wits, talents and humor. SANDY PETERSEN Sandy is firmly bound to join us again at THE KRAKEN even at private expense - elder oaths and ancient spells permitting. The designer of the 'Call of Cthulhu' RPG, designer of numerous famous and infamous computer games (Doom, Age of Empires), movie buff, board game geek and walking & talking encyclopedia can safely be labeled as one of 'The Great Old Ones' of the gaming hobby. We look forward to his fun games, bad and/or horrific movies of his choice, enlightenment by his arcane knowledge and an all-around good time with Uncle Sandy. CHARLIE KRANK? Mr. Krank, president of Chaosium, Inc., could no longer resist the lure of THE KRAKEN. Fresh from GenCon he will join us for our feast of games and BBQ. Rest assured we will place the meat roasting and burger flippin' in his capable hands. Of course he will also run a handful of choice games, present and sell the latest Chaosium produce and in his traditional and most noble role as 'Chaosium Convention Fun Powerhouse', provide other joyful convention activities. Be surprised. Oh, and it's time for another 'Cthulhu for President' rally once again. Why settle for the lesser evil? GRÉGORY PRIVAT
?We are happy to be able to welcome Monsieur Privat back to THE KRAKEN.
His call to serve on a deserted island among the Spawn of the Deep Ones has been rescheduled - much to our relief. He will apply his multitude of creative skills to produce another game on the spot, with the able help of our attendees. Apart from presenting and play-testing his awesome latest game creations with you, he will host the collective masterwork miniature game 'Shoggoths Unite!' from the last KRAKEN.?? More guests to be announced soon...
