Gottacon in Victoria, Canada just had a really successful Games on Demand event, and I think it deserves a mention.
It was run by Mike G and Angela Gruber, and the GMs were myself, Patrick Riegert, Todd Nicholas, and Riley Vandall. Mike stepped in as well when he could.
Mike tells me we had 70 people go through in three days. Because of some really effective advertising, many of these were first-time roleplayers. It was extremely successful, and will have to be happening again next year.
And on that note, anyone in the Victoria-Vancouver-Seattle area, or willing to visit next year, you should highly consider going us. It’s a great time, and I’m sure Mike would agree that we could really use you.
And heck, failing that, if you know someone in our area who might be interested next year, let them know about it.
Why did no one ask for Umläut? I’d love to try that one.
It had no interest. The only games I ran for groups (and I only ended up running two GoD slots; I was too exhausted on Sunday plus I had to work) was FAE and EotE/AoR.
Well, Todd and I were wanting to try that one. I’m still interested if you’d like to run it sometime.
