Pelgrane gamesYou might have noticed this post announcing our GenCon 2014 attendee survey (if you’re going to GenCon, be sure to enter before the end of February to go into a prize draw for Pelgrane vouchers – the survey link is here). We’re still working out the fine details of our GenCon GM package, so if you’re interested in running games at GenCon, email me for more information and to stay updated on our plans.

It’s not just GenCon, though – we’re always looking for GMs for other conventions. At the moment, conventions we’re attending and recruiting GMs for include UK Games Expo (Birmingham, UK – May 30th to June 1st) and Origins Game Fair (Columbus, OH – June 11th to 15th), but we also need GMs for Pax East (Boston, MA – April 11th to 13th) and Pax Prime (Seattle, WA – August 29th to September 1st).

We’re also keen to support conventions that we can’t make it to, but you can! If you’d like to run Pelgrane games at your local games convention, email me and let me know – we can help out with demo game and full game scenarios for all our lines, and we might even be able to offer incentives and prizes for your Pelgrane Press games.

logo_indyWe’re determined to make this years GenCon our best yet, we’ve got some great new products coming out, namely Bookhounds of London and Ashen Stars, and we want to showcase them in all their glory. We need GMs to run games which will appear in the GenCon program book. To anyone who hosts an event with one of our games we will show our gratitude by giving money-off vouchers to the GM for use at the Con. We’ll also publicise your game. Just let us know as soon as you’ve submitted an event.

The system for setting up games through the GenCon website is pretty straightforward.

  1. Go to the GenCon website and if you haven’t already, register.
  2. On the GenCon Reg page, after you’ve logged in, you will see on the right of the screen ‘Submit an Event’
  3. Fill in the form, click Submit at the bottom.
  4. Finished!

The deadline for submitting events is the 11th March, a full timetable and loads of advice can be found here and a very comprehensive list of FAQs can be found here. We are happy to supply convention scenarios for whichever Pelgrane game you decide to run. If you would like to do this, please email me with details of your event once it’s been submitted or if you have any other questions at all. Once you have registered and had approval for your event, we’re happy to send the vouchers out before the convention.
