GMs and Volunteers
We are accepting GMs and Volunteers for the event. If you volunteer 8 hours of your time as either a GM or a general volunteer we will waive the admission fee. For GMs that is 2 game sessions of 4 hours each. For general volunteers that will generally be 2 shifts of, you guessed it, 4 hours each.
Can't have a gaming convention without games. Can't have games without GMs. We're using the term GM pretty loosely. You don't have to run an RPG. If you have a favorite board or stategy game you want to run, this is for you too. Mind you, all games must fit in the 4 hour timeframe and accomodat up to 8 players. Once you've signed up as a GM email our GMM (Game Master Master... perhaps G(M2)... but I digress) at GameMaster@Chupacabracon.com. Send him a description of the game including a unique title, game system (or name for board games) and the number of players. Also be sure to include preferred time slots and your user name on the Warhorn site. He will then get your game set up on the site and you assigned as the GM. He'll also get back to you with any questions. Keep in mind, you don't have to run two different games or scenarios. You can run the same one twice.
Volunteers will help us at the event with such things as the registration desk, clean up and staging between game sessions, helping GMs, guests, and attendees with finding their tables, and generally being an extension of the organizers.
Signing up to be a volunteer or GM could not be simpler; simply select the GM or Volunteer option during sign up.
We have many special guests from the Austin area and all around the country. Check out the list of guests:
