DEXCON GMs - (Please share liberally)

TL;DR - Deadlines. They're MUCH sooner than last year. Please be ready to submit when the form goes live. 

The form for submitting games will go live before April 1, hopefully sooner. Subscribe to the forum if you want an email when that happens. www.dexposure.com/home.html. Follow links to the forum. This is how we manage our mailing list. 

This spring/summer is utterly bonkers for us, so our goal for deadlines looks like this:

Form Goes Live: April 1
LARP and SEMI-LIVE SUBMISSION DEADLINE - APRIL 21, NO EXCEPTIONS.  Yes, I'm yelling. Please spread the word. Tell your favorite larp and semi-live GM. The larp schedule goes together like a carefully orchestrated jigsaw puzzle. 
KristaCon(tm) and LongCon(generic) proposals ALSO must be submitted to us at this point, so we can negotiate changes and avoid overlap.
Other Game Submissions: May 1.

It's our most desperate desire this year to get the DEXCON schedule posted before we leave for Origins.

we are traveling 11 out of 16 weekends between now and DEXCON, so we're going to need everybody's cooperation. :)  
Double Exposure in 2016 (2/25/15) Double Exposure announces 2016 dates. DREAMATION 2016: February 18 - 21, 2016. DEXCON 19: June 29 - July 3, 2016. METATOPIA 2016: November 3 - 6, 2016. Prices for all conventions will remain the same as 2015. Check out the Double Exposure Forum for more ...

Hey Avvie, how does one subscribe to announcements through the forum? It's not clear to me.

We get a lot of "why don't you use an app to manage the convention" queries. 

It's worth saying this publicly - 

Moving the convention to something that requires technology to access everything creates an insurmountable financial hurdle for some gamers.

Attending a convention is already complicated enough for gamers coming in from financially disadvantaged backgrounds. 

Yes, we're weirdly archaic in some folks' perspective. But every kid who walks through the door can schedule themselves to play a game. There's no need to own a laptop, ipad, smart phone or data plan. An elderly gamer who finds smart phone apps intimidating can engage at the same level as a grad student. 

We don't intend to change that in the near future. Our time is being invested in reducing barriers rather than introducing new ones that we have no capacity to mitigate. 

If you ever hear somebody say that they're not coming to the convention because it creates a financial hardship, please connect them with me. I have mechanisms that already exist for making it possible for them to attend.

So, um.. I signed up to work registration at Dreamation, but I neglected to arrange sleeping space for myself, and now Dreamation is three days away. ::panic!::

I've e-mailed +Avonelle Wing about this, but if anyone has extra space they could fit someone like me, that would be great. I can pay for my share of a room, and while a bed or sofa bed is preferred, I can bring a self-inflating air mattress.

Plz halp!

Doves, 

If you're having DREAMATION scheduling anxiety and/or weirdness, please tag me so I can fix it or soothe you? 

It's easier if people tag me directly than for me to keep sifting through G+ looking for spot fires. Encourage people who don't know me to tag me. I'm tied to my laptop for the rest of the day or until I get buggy and go out for a walk. But I won't be gone long. I'm here to help.

I got hit with a TMJ flare this morning while proofing the DREAMATION schedule. (fucking OW. god damn fucking ow.) 

I'm very much like a cat with a sore mouth, making me useless for many many tasks. So, instead of being able to do the stuff that needs to be carried, I'm baking. like you do.

Everybody's doing this - 

I'm running a game at DREAMATION.  I'm not sure WHICH game yet, but I'll be facilitating it like a boss. 

R328: "Seven Wonders Anthology Sampler"

Seven Wonders is a brand new story game anthology from Pelgrane Press. I have a sneak peak copy and several of us are preparing to run whichever of the games our players want to play.
