POH Game Masters Needed!!!!

************************************

If you are a quality Game Master with experience, you are coming to the Palladium Open House, and would like to run one or more gaming events at the POH, please contact us as soon as possible.

We especially want our “creators” – freelance writers and artists – and Megaversal Ambassadors, to run several events throughout the Open House. I’ll be running 2-4 a day, depending on the day.

G.M.s who are scheduled, in advance (PLEASE, no later than March 15, 2015), to run 3 or more events will get a special T-shirt and a 30% discount on all Palladium product purchases (does NOT apply to auction items, concessions, toys, prints or artwork).

What we will need from G.M.s:

  • RPG/world setting (Rifts®, Robotech®, HU2, Fantasy, BTS, Ninjas & Superspies, etc.).
  • Game Description: A brief, but dynamic description of the game.
  • Maximum number of players: 6-10 is typical, but run what YOU feel comfortable with running.
  • Running time: 3-4 hours is typical, and best for these kinds of events, longer can be a problem.
  • What days you can run: VIP Thursday, Friday, Saturday & Sunday.
  • When: Do you have a preferred time of day you want to run? If so, what is it (10 AM, noon, 8:00 PM, what)? If we can not give you that time slot will you run earlier or later?
  • Multiple games: If you are running multiple times, is it the same game? If different games, provide all this information for EACH.
  • Please bring pre-rolled “player” character sheets: Pre-rolled character sheets/descriptions for each player is strongly advised. Why waste time rolling up characters? Let’s game!
  • Minimum age of the players: Especially if the game has mature content or extreme violence. Please indicate if it is not suitable for players under the age of 17.
  • YOUR T-shirt size: You will want this shirt.
  • I.D. & contact info:
    Your real name
    Street address
    Telephone/Cell number (an alternative number optional)
    Email address

NOTE: If you commit to running games at the POH you must be serious and MUST be available to run your games. Do not disappoint gamers from around the globe by being unprepared or absent. You also have to purchase your own admission ticket.
