TL,DR: Want to run an
anime-themed RPG or be spokesman for the Guild in exchange for free
entrance to Animecon? Let me know by the end of this week.
Full text: We've been approached by the leadership of Animecon (http://www.animecon.nl/) to participate in
their convention this year, being held in Den Haag on May 31st to June 2nd. They
noticed that we have occasionally run anime-style games at our own events, and
think it would be a good addition to theirs. So here is the deal:
What they offer us:
- Free tickets to Animecon for the days we'll be
- Compensation for some material and
- A booth in their 'convention hall' where we can
- A panel room for 90-minute periods where we
could run demos to attract people to the booth.
What we had in mind:
- We staff a booth with minimally 2 people at any
given time. One person GMs a short anime-themed RPG, the other greets
walk-ups and provides basic information about the Guild and RPGs. More
volunteers = more games to run.
- We rotate people in and out of both roles so
people can see some of the convention.
- We staff the booth for as much of the weekend as
we have interested people to staff it.
- We potentially have one or more panels where we
talk about RPGs and how they relate to anime.
There's a lot of flexibility in how we choose to operate
at this event, and it would be a great opportunity not to mention a lot of fun.
If you're interested in participating at some level, please let me know
by the end of this week so that we can get things set up
with the Animecon leadership team.
