It's a two day game convention, featuring roleplaying, industry panels, board games, and a giant regency LARP. Featured games include Call of Cthulhu and RuneQuest. and much more.

Sarah Newton


Chaosium is excited to bringing out SARAH NEWTON as international guest of honour.

Sarah is currently writing a RuneQuest campaign pack for Chaosium, set in raucous and dusty 'Barbarian Town' on the Prax-Dragon Pass frontier. At Arcanacon she'll be appearing in panels and running games. It will be a busy two days for her, but a great opportunity for Arcanacon attendees to meet and game with a famous and talented RPG writer!

Other guests include Chaosium's Michael O'Brien and Susan O'Brien, Call of Cthulhu writer Mark Morrison, and many others.
