Teslacon 2010

I recently learned about Teslacon's wonderful approach to conventions in terms of making them much more immersive and story driven.  Apparently many people are thinking along the same lines as all four of the Texas Steampunk Conventions slated to begin over the next 12 months are planning something similar.  I know that one of those was discussing this about a year ago, but never got funding for the idea.  It appears the Teslacon Organizer was the first to make such a wonderful idea come to flower.  I will be very interested to see how similar events turn out.  I do not research heavily into events so far from my home as I cannot afford to fly and am not young enough to just hop on my motorcycle and take road trips of over 1000 miles like I used to manage back in my youth.  This one: however, is very different from most.  Last week I did a google search for reviews to see how the event turned out and to explore if they ever really tried any sort of murder mystery theater (the website was intentionally cryptic about how the story would play out).  It appears they had some degree of this in the convention, but attendees had to be in the right place at the right moment to see it and none of the descriptions say much really about it unfortunately.  I will present links below to the reviews I ran across for your reading pleasure.
