pennsic42medallionOur intrepid reporters on-scene at the Pennsic War went to Information Point to gather more info on this year’s Pennsic medallion.

According to the staff at Information point, the image on the medallion is a bowl of petunias, which along with the phrase, “Don’t Panic”, refer to the book, The Restaurant at the End of the Universe, by Douglas Adams. The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Universe series the book is part of repeatedly refers to 42 as being the answer to the ultimate question of life, the universe, and everything.

As this is Pennsic 42, the reference fits.
