Dreamation Policy Change

19Aug09

Everyone who’s thinking about attending Dreamation and offering to run games should read this thread on the Forge. Vinny is soliciting comments on some new policies that will be in place for the convention. I think these are the building blocks of an even better Indie Games Explosion in the future!

  1. Hmm, I spot a few elements common in Irish and UK conventions in there. Interesting.

    So if I want to run one of my four player Sorcerer games at a Double Exposure con, I’ll either have to offer it three times or recruit at least two other GMs to run the same event in the same slot, too?
    I understand Vinnie’s point about people being frustrated with not being able to get into events, but I dislike the idea of committing such a large chunk of my available GM’ing time to one event. What if, for the sake of argument, I draw one or two players for each of the scheduled three sessions? Then there are too few players for *any* of those sessions to run and I’ve lost the opportunity to run something else.
    I’d rather offer a particular event once or twice per con, and if it’s a hit I can bring it back again. There are some events that are going to be in high demand, but the GM doesn’t always recognize them as high demand events up front.
    And I’d like to point out that if a player is desperate to play an event run by a particular GM, that player is not likely to be satisfied with playing an event written by that GM but run by a different GM in the same time slot.
    I’ve been that frustrated player dying to play a particular event, too, but I think in this case the cure is worse than the disease. Requesting two runs as a minimum strikes me as reasonable; three does not.
