The pool of game mastering talent that square off against each other to become our Iron Contender
at Total Confusion Game Convention (Totalcon) each year runs so deep that only really scary fish
swim in it…
Yet somehow Alexander Jackl AKA GM Godzilla pulled off a second straight victory. He scored
highest in a room of his peers by running his own adventure based on our Three Secret Story
Elements: Unicorn, Undead Forest, and Ultimate Sacrifice.
Such a sepulchral set-up deserves a fittingly frightening photo. Why NOTICE how host Lou Agresta
dissolves into a phantom of wispy orangeness!. Feel your very blood chill at the sight of whatever
the heck co-host Rone Barton is supposed to be dressed up as.

As the Iron Contender, Alexander receives a free trip to Gen Con to compete in the Iron GM World
Championship. When asked his strategy for defeating all comers in August, he breathed atomic fire
and knocked over a whole buncha Tokyo. We’re not going to ask again.
