The History of ArmageddonCon

We begin with the history of our galactic get-together, as related by our first guest speaker, Gamadon 'Elf'' Safeway of the late planet Ekmek:

 The first ArmageddonCon, in 2000-2001, was assembled to discuss traditions and prophecies of doom current on Earth at the turn of the millenium. The final event of the Con was held at the site of Armegeddon, a fortress town which had lain desolate for two millenia, but which tradition identified as the expected site of the first clash of a planet-wide or perhaps interplanetary war.
