I wake up every morning and the first thing that comes to my head is this sentence: “I don't have enough tentacles in my miserable and unfulfilled life.”
So imagine my surprise-- nay, my delight –when a friend linked me to a convention in Germany called Tentacles Convention. Simple, perhaps not a clever name, true, but hey, who cares? It's tentacles! Everyone loves tentacles! Right?
Now picture the exquisite torture I felt when I realized that Tentacles Convention is NOT a hentai fest, is NOT an expo for demons, aliens, many-armed robots, and sea creatures...no, Tentacles Convention is more of a role-playing con with a Cthulhu theme. And Cthulhu isn't even going.
Instead, the events feature stuff like a Tentacles Auction (which claims to be auctioning off gaming treasures, not tentacle demons) Horror Movie Quiz and something called “Greg's Rambling Hour.”
Siiiiigh...maybe next year.
(In all seriousness though-- role-playing nerds near Deutschland should definitely check the event out; it looks like a good time.)
