We will have many games available for you to enjoy in the chat room that has voice and a dice roller to use. Your support in coming in for a few hours is highly appreciated.

How does it work?

What is a one shot game?

I can't plan that far ahead because I don't know what my situation will be, but if I can, I will be there.

Great! Hopefully we can get a bang on this day. Perhaps an email blast to all the members would be a great start. :D I know a few of us will be posting on other sites as others will be giving out flyers. I will be handing out flyers at the Supercon convention here in Miami Beach on the 4th of July and another member is setting up TopDungeons at a GenCon convention and will be handing out flyers also. If everyone works together we can make the first online P&PG mini convention special.

What about door prizes/game winner prizes from sponsors? There was a considerable list of generous souls for the 2014 One Page Dungeon Contest. (http://www.onepagedungeon.info/one-page-dungeon-contest-2014)

It would be nice if something along the lines would be organized. Perhaps you have some PR skills to make it happen Mike?

I actually have zero PR skills. But I can send an email with the best of 'em. I highly recommend looking for someone experienced in fundraising. Or, as the case is, prizeraising.

And you'll be happy to know that my adventure, "Return to Volskygge," already has traps, riddles, monsters, maps, and treasure. Working on pre-generated characters. And some surprises.

hmmmm.




i have some swag. all SJG stuff, but still.... i don't think there is a legal online version of Munchkin that could be used, which is what I usually demo for events. i wonder if a gurps lite one shot would be well received? I can ask around the local MIB cell, even branch out into the region or tap into the global list of MIBs (considering that it is an online event an all...) and see if any would like to attend or even host a game or something for a PNPG mini-con. August 16, a Saturday, you say?

how would shipping costs for swag be handled?

They say, in comedy anyway, that timing is everything. Is there a good or bad time for us (me) to advertise the P&PGcon on other websites? Any guidelines?

I am not sure what swag is. It is probably because I am a foreigner. :) The entire mini con event is free. It is a get together of primarily regular members that come into the chat room all the time, yet with a little bit of word of mouth we can get a lot of members from outside visit us for that one day. Also as reinforcement we are fortunate enough to have everyone that is active at the site to help get people together. If the event becomes popular and the administration "Farcaster and Matt" want to make it cost money, or have shipping costs covered through entry fees, or however then of course we will know. The main thing for me primarily is to get the DMs all the players filled up for the games. I would hate to have DMs with no players after they spend all this time preparing for it.

At the moment I am looking for gaming websites that allow us to post advertisement of the mini con on them. Also online conventions may allow us to trade banners. Last but not least I am bugging gaming companies to perhaps stop by to promote their products and give away free pdfs or credit to visit their sites.

Word of mouth is also effective - go to game shops and post flyers.

Send emails to friends, family, or coworkers and have them help out.

If you so happen to go to a convention (GenCon, SuperCon, etc.) make a hundred or so flyers and just hand them out.


If everyone that wants this mini con to succeed then offer 1 or 2 hours a day advertising and we should have a fun time together on August 16th. :)

If you need flyers or banners for the event go to www.penandpapergames.webs.com (http://www.penandpapergames.webs.com) and look for the link PPGCon Advertisement.

I hope this helps a little DMMike.

Oh I almost forgot I am checking out podcast stations to see if they can add the mini con in their schedule. :)
