We come again "to that ancient sea town [San Pedro], where elders...commanded their sons to keep festival once every century [or year] that the memory of primal secrets might not be forgotten." Our intrepid leaders will properly christen the event with an opening Invocation led by your eldritch host Cody Goodfellow.

Cthulhu will rise from his slumber thanks to the special effects wizardry of Anthony Parker and the sponsorship of LoveCraft Wines!
