Charlie Krank, the President of Chaosium, will be hosting a seminar on Friday night celebrating the 20th Anniversary of Call of Cthulhu and Kenneth Hite will be discussing "Keeping Cthulhu Scary" which will be awesome for GMs. And James Ernest will be doing a hands on boardgame design seminar teaching how you can publish your own games! James has published over 200 so he knows how its done.
The hotel is the Hotel Sofitel, one of the most beautiful hotels in the Bay Area with a luxurious pool and a very cool European flair. The convention has scored a great deal on the hotel rooms so check it out! If you are anywhere in California, Nevada or Oregon, CelestiCon would be an awesome weekend for you...and a non-gaming spouse too!
