Greetings, players! Somehow, it’s once again time to start recruiting volunteers for our major conventions! At this time, we’re opening applications for PaizoCon Online 2023. Information on Gen Con Indy, Gen Con Online, as well as other PaizoCon events, will happen at a future date. Please read all the information in the convention’s section before filling out the application form, and let the team know if you have any questions!
PaizoCon Online 2023
PaizoCon Online 2023 will take place online from May 26-30, 2023. We are not planning a physical component to the show at this time. New content at this show will include the launch of Starfinder Society Year 6, the new Starfinder Society interactive special, and new Pathfinder Society scenarios.
We’re currently seeking volunteers for the following roles:
- Game Master: Run tables of Organized Play Scenarios, Bounties and Quests
- Headquarters (HQ): Answer player and GM questions, seat players, handle conflicts and disputes, and report games after completion
Please read this important information before applying:
- Volunteer applications will be reviewed and accepted or rejected by the PaizoCon Organizing Committee. Filling this form out does not guarantee acceptance; you will receive an email with further information from the PaizoCon committee.
- Unlike previous PaizoCon Onlines, we will be assigning GMs to games based on their indicated preferences in the application form. There will not be a later signup date for GMs to select their games.
- Reward information is listed in the table below. GMs who do not qualify for a badge will still need to purchase one.
- Applications will be processed on a rolling basis, beginning no later than March 1. The earlier you get your application in, the more likely it is you’ll get the scenarios you want. Please be patient as we put the final details on the convention internally before we send out GM emails!
- Adventure authors interested in running tables of scenarios they have written should fill out this form and then follow up by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Anybody interested in running games outside of the Organized Play offerings (such as Infinite content, homebrew content, or games from other publishers) should email email@example.com for more information about scheduling your offerings.
- Any questions about the GM signup process should be sent to the committee at firstname.lastname@example.org.
