Dragon Con 2016

Please share with anyone who might be interested.

DragonCon is almost upon us so it is time to get a organized. If you are unfamiliar with what Games on Demand, or someone has forwarded this to you, GoD is almost a mini-con within the con. We are a group of volunteers that offer to run games with an emphasis on serving people new to the hobby or experienced gamers wanting to try out new or small press games.

We have two forms for volunteers to fill out and get started. The Scheduling Form everyone needs to fill out so I can make sure we have a steady supply of volunteers all day. The second form only needs to be filled out by people planning to run games.

Let me know if you are interested but haven’t received an email from Drew Owen  and we’ll get you the links. Looking forward to having some fun down south!

Freeform Larps on Demand at Gen Con

god_gen_con_logoDid you know that this year you can pre-register for Freeform Larps on Demand? You can, and you should!

Gen Con Event Registration – Freeform Larps on Demand

Come try a variety of short, live-action games that blend LARP & tabletop gaming to produce amazing stories with a small group. Our diverse GMs will introduce you to some of the great freeform live-action games developed over the years around the world. These games aren’t your traditional boffer larp, but instead blend larp and tabletop gaming, allowing you to physically embody your character and play out a story with a small group.

Scenarios will be chosen by players at the beginning of the session. Nothing required but a sense of adventure!
