A Call to Vol—How to Volunteer for Organized Play at Gen Con 50!

Monday, January 30, 2017

Hard to believe the year passed so fast, but it's time again to invite people to help out with Pathfinder Society activities at Gen Con. As in prior years, Paizo is once again a co-sponsor with our booth on the Exhibit Floor, seminars galore, and activities in the Sagamore Ballroom. But we have a few changes in store as well. So grab some coffee, get comfortable, and see what Organized Play has up its sleeve for the "Best Four Days in Gaming!"

Several weeks ago, I put out a call for volunteers to fill Department Head and Lead positions at Gen Con 50. It pleases me greatly to introduce this year's team. They and the PFS team will work closely to make Gen Con 50 the smoothest and most awesome event to date!

Leads

Jon Cary, Bob Jonquet, Todd Morgan, and Lucas Servideo

Department Heads

Kelly Brummond, Seth Brummond, Kevin Hanley, Tina Saunders, Walter Sheppard, Mark Stratton, and Dominick Trascritti.

What plans we have for this year! Adventure Card Guild (ACG) returns with play from all published Seasons, including Season of Plundered Tombs and Season of the Goblin. Back as well is the ever-popular Gen Con Open, bigger and badder than ever. On the Roleplaying Guild (RPG) side, we're offering a variety of scenarios from the current Year of the Stolen Storm, as well as some retro events from past Seasons. Season 9 takes off as well, though you'll have to wait until PaizoCon to hear the devious diabolical awesome plots concocted by John and the PFS team.

Following in the footsteps of last year's interactive, 8-00: The Cosmic Captive, Friday night's interactive will include both ACG and RPG components. Saturday evening will have a large event for RPG and Sunday sees the finals of the ACG Gen Con Open! The team has a few surprises up our sleeves, but the time is not yet ripe to share them. Once the schedule is finalized, we will share with our players via blog and Gen Con's event page!

Back again is Pathfinder Society Academy (PSA) returns, bigger than ever. This year, we reserved 15 tables for youth-friendly games. The schedule includes lessons—Beginner, Advanced, and Transitions—similar to prior years, as well as full scenarios from the Pathfinder Society catalog. Having a dedicated area for our youth and their families gives us the opportunity to offer positive experiences in a youth-friendly format.

At this time, we are still in discussions about what to do with our demo space. Until those are concluded, I don't want to make any announcements. Once we decide, we will reach out to the volunteer pool to fill the slots.

The past few years saw the HQ volunteers and the GM volunteers on vastly different schedules. While this helped with some of the logistics and people moving, the HQ slots were long and mixed groups couldn't match up their schedules. This year, we are trying a different approach. HQ schedules are shorter, but start an hour before the slot starts. We've adjusted the session requirements per Tier accordingly and returned the store credit to $10/slot for all volunteers.

The biggest change, besides HQ volunteer scheduling, is the addition of Midnight Madness. Well, midnight is a bit of a misnomer, since the slot starts at 2:00 AM. So I'll call it the "overnight" slot. We are keeping it small as we test the waters and see how many people are up and wanting to game. So our games this year run around the clock - (8:00 AM to 1:00 PM, 2:00 PM to 7:00 PM, and 8:00 PM to 1:00 AM, 2:00 AM to 7:00 AM), with the exception of Sunday (9:00 AM to 2:00 PM). I also need a few volunteers to help set up Wednesday Morning and teardown Sunday Afternoon. If you are interested in either of these slots, which don't count towards your Tier requirements but do earn store credit and pizza, please indicate your interest in the Notes section of the Volunteer Questionnaire.

Volunteers may sign up for a number of shifts during the convention, which translates into Tier status. No volunteer should plan on volunteering for more than 8 slots. We want you to see the convention too! When filling out the Volunteer Questionnaire, please use the following chart to determine your Tier status.

Rewards are very similar to last year. Based on their tier, volunteers receive a variety of perks, including a free 4-Day Gen Con 2017 badge, 1/4 of a room at the Westin in downtown Indianapolis, a hardcover book, paizo.com store credit, and an exclusive tier-based boon (RPG) or reward (ACG). At this time, we are not sure which of the great books we are offering—too many great things coming off the presses. Once that is decided, I will let the volunteers know. Also, volunteers are given shirts every other year, based on the number of days they volunteer.

We are putting the call out with the intent that we can let all prospective volunteers know their status before the Gen Con housing lottery goes live on February 12th, since housing in downtown Indianapolis is at a premium. As a side note, you need to have a badge to register for the housing. So if you volunteer as a Tier 3-4 volunteer and want housing downtown, you must purchase a GM badge from Gen Con and proceed to register for the lottery. When I receive our GM badge allocation, I will add a GM badge to your account and you may request a refund of the badge you purchased. This is the only way to access the housing lottery! For Tier 1-2 volunteers, I will send your housing information when our block is assigned in June.

Related to housing is roommate preference. To save my sanity when doing room assignments, volunteers may request either one roommate (to fill a bed) or three (to fill a room). It is imperative that roomies put each other on their questionnaire—so Bob lists Jon and Jon lists Bob and I put them in a room together. If you list someone that doesn't list you back, then I do not guarantee you will wind up in the same room. There is also a choice for "no preference". When assigning rooms, I tend to group like together. There is a Notes section of the questionnaire to supply more information. If there is anything I should take into consideration when placing you in a room, please add it here!

Summary (TL;DR)

  • Decide to volunteer—choose Tier based on charts above.
  • Ensure you have a Gen Con account (create at Gen Con Website)
  • Complete the Volunteer Questionnaire
  • Check your email for a letter confirming your volunteer status.

If you have any questions, send them via email to genconpfsvolunteer@paizo.com

For those looking to volunteer at PaizoCon, I'll be putting that call out in February.

Thank you to all our volunteers and players who make the Pathfinder Society so fantastic! The team and look forward to seeing you at Gen Con 50! Let's roll some dice!

All right...GenCon is a go. Had to make sure it didn't conflict with other family plans, but everything looks good.

Might even get my wife to come with...but I always say that, and it never happens.

If you have not submitted your volunteer application yet be aware that the Gen Con hotel lottery will occur this weekend. Their system is changed this year so be sure to read the details found HERE on the Gen Con website. Pay extra attention to the deadlines. If you want any chance of getting a hotel room close to the convention center, you need to be really focused on this process. Alternately, you can just volunteer as a tier one/two and get a share of a hotel room for free. Volunteer confirmation emails are being generated and will be distributed shortly so watch for them.

Be aware that we will not be getting our allotment of volunteer badges from Gen Con until later in the season so if you are a volunteer not earning hotel space through tier one/two rewards, you will need to purchase a Gen Con badge in order to gain access to the hotel lottery. When the volunteer badges are provided, you can get your purchased badge refunded.

Remember that this is Gen Con's 50th anniversary. Expect some special happenings so don't miss out.

Every year I say I'm going to find a way to meet more of the people I've seen here on the boards, and every year I end up not doing so... This year it's gonna be my GenCon secondary success condition (primary is obviously run 8 amazing tables with destroying my voice like last year).

It may be challenging as a Tier 1 attacted to PSA, but I think that I can do it!

As a recommendation, if you need to buy a badge to get refunded later, a one-day badge should get you access to the lottery AND will be less money out-of-pocket now.

Not sure if this is the right spot to make a suggestion. If not, I will start a new thread.

I hope to see a table dedicated to the fixing and correcting of player's chronicles. Last year I found a fair number of players who had chronicle sheets not correctly applied to characters.

It was a lack of understanding of the rules of PFS and because of the perceived lack of time to work with the player to explain how things work, the players are sent off with a chronicle sheet that has problems.

I would be willing to give up all my GMing time to man such a table if one was setup.

I support this idea and would happily volunteer at such a table as well.

That is an excellent idea.

Actually, there's already a table for questions, distributing pregens, etc set up at the front of the Sagamore. Why not just add "helping newbies with their characters and chronicles" to the list of stuff they do and make a point of advertising it for that? That might require assigning one or two more volunteers up there at all times (especially right before session start times), but I think it would be worth it.

From my single year of experience at GenCon, it was not just newbies who had problems.

Grand Lodge 5/5 ⦵⦵⦵ Venture-Captain, Online—PbP aka Hmm

Bret and I gave each other's chronicles a quick-audit, trying to prepare for Paizocon. His were perfect, while mine were riddled with errors including finding that a few characters were missing some of my own GM chronicles!

I do fine with the chronicles that everyone else hands me... But writing out my own GM chronicle around store closing time is one extra thing that sometimes seems to get missed. :/

Given that I'm someone who is supposed to know what I'm doing... I think a Chronicle repair table would be a fabulous idea. Gary is likely correct that issues are widespread, and not just amongst the beginners.

Hmm

PS I got my Tier 1 PSA confirmation email! I'm going to GenCon!

This tends to be my biggest chronicle problem as well. Exacerbated by the fact that locally we had about a year where nothing got reported, so I was sometimes guessing as to which character was supposed to get the chronicle.

I usually just write out my GM Chronicle when I'm printing everything I need for a scenario. The only exceptions are when I'm not sure yet who is getting the chronicle or times when I'm not sure if the table is going to make.

Also, received and replied to my confirmation email, so I'm going to Gencon agaib this year!

Seeing how busy that table gets, especially at slot start, I would suggest elsewhere.

I did that last year.. But I started at tier 6 and before I know it I was at tier 4!

Going for Tier 1 this year simply because I can't afford it other wise. At least I hope.. I have not seen a confirmation yet. <<sniff sniff>>

I hope, for those of us who don't get chosen, that they send out e-mails for that, as well. I'd hate to be left in the lurch.

Liberty's Edge 3/5 Venture-Captain, Nebraska—Omaha

It is all timing. I am pretty sure that everyone who stepped up initially will be accepted. Last year they had at least 2 more calls for volunteers. And even with that, at GenCon last year there was a Tier 1 spot open because of a last minute cancellation.

Liberty's Edge 5/5

That's good to know that the odds are in my favor. Still, it'd be nice to have some kind of confirmation before the lottery opens.

Also, be really nice if they'd send out a message that basically said "We received your questionnaire" to make sure that the connection is working both ways.

Liberty's Edge 3/5 Venture-Captain, Nebraska—Omaha

Well, as posted earlier, the plan is to let everyone know by today. So tomorrow, if you have not received, let them know.

Which is my plan if I don't get a confirmation by the morning.

Also remember the time difference from West Coast to East Coast (Not sure where you fall).

How does that work with hotels, anyway? Tier 1s are supposed to get rooms covered, but I'd guess a last-minute Tier 1 wouldn't get that.

And I'm on Central Time, so I don't know how that would affect the call-outs considering some people already have theirs.

August was so long ago...

lol If memory serves (note disclaimer) I believe I read that the room spot was open. But memory is really foggy on the details.

My point about the time (we are in the same time zone) is that I expect the notification will be going until later in the evening for me because I am in central time zone and west coast is two hours behind.

If it's the same as it was last year, they had to lock in the names of the people getting rooms with the hotel and were unable to change them at a late date. Though I'm sure there are some exceptions that can be made along the if needed (though I'm not con staff and am not speaking for them)

I hate getting all excited when I see that there's a new email in my box, and finding that it is junk mail from AOL. Look, I know I'm like one of three people still using AOL, but I just wish they'd lay off the junk mail this weeks so I can be excited when my confirmation email arrives and not disappointed when it's more AOL junk mail.

My avatar is mentally pacing the gmail void. Since both are working through, there is no peace to be had.
