I didn't see Buried or Buried II in the Events schedule. Same for DungeonDelver's Teeth of Barkash Nour.

I wonder what will be left by 3-Feb :lol:

Yeah I noticed the same thing and made a post on the GC forums. Looks like they are still adding events to the registry, though somehow I would have thought it would make more sense to add everything first before announcing or opening registration views.

In case you guys are available and interested in helping, Paul Stormberg is looking for at least one more DM to help run his Friday night tourney. The slot info is @ https://tabletop.events/conventions/gar ... edule/1433 and the description is:
I know you have an event scheduled Friday but I am concerned I may not have enough DMs for my Vengeance of the Giants tournament that I discussed with you some time back. I have no idea why I didn't ask you then and not now at the eleventh hour.

So far DMs are myself, Jeff Leason, and William Smith Jr. I have some other nebulous offers of help but can not nail down someone I feel is reliable.

As I emailed you previously, the idea behind the Gary Con Legends Tournament is to create new tournaments based on classic ones that were made into TSR modules. I want of course to involve the original authors when I can and want to continue this for several years as an annual thing. I have Jeff Leason, Zeb Cook, Allen Hammack, and Harold Johnson on the hook for future tournaments as well as a few other tricks for authors that are no longer with us.

I asked for and Luke has given a great prize - free Silver Badges or equivalent credit to any badge purchased the following year to the winning team.

The round is Friday night and runs from 6-12. Three short parts with breaks between. The rules are AD&D 1st Ed.

Do you see any way you might reconfigure your schedule to help me out?

I mean it is entirely possible that the event will fall flat on it's face and only one team will sign-up. So I understand that I am asking for an eventuality that might leave you with an empty slot or you adding you event back into the schedule late.
Is anyone free on Friday evening and able/willing to assist? I'm already DMing in that slot and unfortunately don't have a lot of flexibility in my schedule.

Allan.

Cool, I'll keep this in mind. I actually have my Thu, Fri, and Sat evening slots open for getting in some play time since I'm running during the mornings and afternoons.

If anything changes in my run schedule or I'm unable to get into any decent games after registration, I'll definitely talk with Paul about helping out.

Shadow Over Kellenmore (Savage Worlds)

(Also keeping in mind DMing the event for Paul that Allan mentioned up thread)

Feast at Highgate Cemetery (Savage Worlds)
Kolchak: The Night Stalker in the Big Easy (Amazing Adventures)

Well, Diamond attendees for Garycon registered today. I noticed that someone already swiped a seat to my Saturday morning, Buried session. Pretty cool. Diamond tickets are $1000, I guess I'm going to have to bring my A-game that morning.

A diamond level attendee should buy you a beverage of choice for the session. :lol:

I cancelled my Friday night game to help run Paul's tourney.

If I'm not needed to DM, I'll be looking for a pickup game! :D

Very cool. I saw you mention this on the other forums, I'm sure that was a tough decision to make but I know Paul will really appreciate it.
