MisCon sweeps in once a year in the spring, lasts a few days, then vanishes on the day of remembrance, leaving no trace.

It's ephemeral as a rainstorm.

It's been plagued by zombies, became a ruined wasteland, ascended to the future, lost all its heroes, and leveled up. It's been filled with doors to many places and times. Once it became a fairy tale and attracted none other than George R.R. Martin, one of the greatest wizards of our age.

This year it's changing again . . .

If you listen right, might be you can hear the crowd, the carnival barkers, the screeching beasts. None of them are caged, and some prowl among the night tents, green eyes glinting. Can you smell the clowns, wandering like lost souls through the hotel? Only it's not a normal hotel anymore. It's been transformed. We've got weirdos and corset-sellers, and hawkers selling wands and rings and magic fish in a sack.

And the wonders.

To find them, you can't go looking. Not directly. At least that's what I hear. You just need to be in the right place at the right time and in the right frame of mind. Maybe wander under the big top, check out the atrium midway, or peek into the mysterious tent out on the edge of the field. I've heard they've got it all in there, even a different night sky.

While you're working on costumes, panel ideas, and game scenarios, think about carnival sideshows, vaudeville acts, outsiders, mysterious places, things that lurk in the shadows, and ponder what fascinates us.

Let's delve into humanity's deepest darkest secrets and search for meaning. Why are we curious? What do we seek? Come to MisCon 34: Carnival of Wonders and maybe you�ll find out.
