Dungeon Masters Needed!
Gary Con is all about gaming, and though our organizers are successful in planning for numerous exciting events run by some of the most famous names in the industry, gamers like you are the heart of what makes Gary Con great. We rely on volunteer Dungeon Masters to submit events that they wish to run for the enjoyment of the attendees. Dungeon Masters that successfully run multiple games will be entitled to special DM-only perks, including badge fee compensation in some cases.
How event submission works
To run a game of your own, you will need to submit all the details via the Table Top Events page. You must have an attendance badge to submit hosting events. Log into your Tabletop events account and submit away. For detailed instructions on submitting events, visit the Event Submission instructions page.
Within 2 weeks of online submission, your event will be reviewed by our staff and you may be contacted for additional information. Once approved, you will receive an email verifying your event details and the event will be added to the catalog. Players can begin signing up for your game when online Event Registration begins.
In addition to the joy of playing an awesome event and helping us celebrate a life well-played, we have a GM rewards program as a way to thank you for what you do for Gary Con:
- All participants who submit and successfully run at least 1 event will get a distinctive GM Badge with Gary Con neck wallet and be able to take advantage of our free GM tableside concierge service. Once every game session, a GC volunteer will come to your table to offer you a complimentary beverage and snack.
- GMs who submit and successfully run 8 hours will receive a Special GM Stadium Cup that good for both $1 soda and $3 Spotted Cow beer all convention long! And, of course, it entitles you to free beer during Happy Hour Friday and Saturday from 5pm to 7pm.
- EARLY BIRD GETS THE WYRM. All GMs who submit 12 hours (or more) of events by October 31st will get a uniquely designed GC IX GM t-shirt. This shirt is only available to GMs and will not be for sale at the convention.
- GMs who submit and successfully run 16+ hours earn a $75 credit towards their badge for Gary Con XI. Please make sure to turn in your sign-in sheets to Gary Con HQ daily so we can properly credit your events.
Note: GM rewards are reserved for GMs who submit their events as a part of the event catalog and are available for pre-registration for attendees. Games run during open gaming do not count toward total hours for GM rewards.
