I guess this is official now, as my ugly mug is up on their industry guest page.

I’ll be an industry guest (and attendee, and rabid fan, and over-caffeinated player) at Total Confusion XXV! What is Total Confusion? Let me give you a brief history.

Total Confusion has over twenty years of experience bringing great gaming moments to players in the New England area and beyond.  TotalCon is always held the weekend after Presidents Day in February for 4 days ( Thurs-Sun ). It started back in 1987 at the Yankee Drummer in Auburn, MA by a man named Wes Carpentier, who still attends TotalCon each year and is a permanent VIP at the convention.
In 1988, TotalCon  was held at Clark University in Worcester, MA followed by two years at The Sheraton Hotel also located in Worcester.  As the covention grew, it’s lcoation moved to the Royal Plaza in Marlboro, MA until the late 1990’s.  In 1997, the convention moved to the Ramada Rolling Green in Andover,MA until 2002.  Since 2003, Total Confusion has been held at the Holiday Inn in Mansfield, MA.  2010 was the largest  attended event held at this location.  Total Confusion XXV will once again be hosted at the Holiday Inn in Mansfiled, MA on February 24-27, 2011.

Where is Total Confusion?

This is cool on several levels. First, my very first gaming convention was a small thing called Total Confusion II. XXIII years later, I return!

Also, this is the first time I’ve ever been invited anywhere as someone from the RPG industry.

I’m also going to be running two sessions of the first Aruneus module, in which players will get to kill a lot of things that are already dead, try out the Orcs and also learn an exciting song and dance routine.

I’ll also be running a Talisman game, with all the extra bits (expansions).

If any of you will be there, please drop me a line. I’d love to say hello! My lovely wife, Mrs. In The Corner will also be in attendance along with some members of the original Aruneus playtesting group and maybe even an Editor or two from Troll in the Corner.

About Ben

I'm a geek. A nerd, a dweeb, whatever. Yes I owned garb, yes I still own medieval weaponry. And yeah, I could kick your butt in Mechwarrior the CCG. I love video games, role playing games, tactical board games and all forms of speculative fiction. I will never berate someone for wanting to be a Jedi and take everything Gary Gygax ever wrote as gospel. Well, all of this but that last bit.
