    Will there be second recruitment to run the specials?

    So it seems in the dropdowns there are only specific games able to be chosen. Is it possible to get a list if that is the case?

    Thirded.

    Keen to GM the SFS Special :)

    Getting the 10 specials for 5 Novas is going to be an enormous chore, so keen to nab an opportunity if it arises!

    I’m in to gm a pf1 special as well, as my third scenario. For now, I’ve selected the "I do not wish to GM a third scenario" option on the form.

    The recruitment to GM the Specials was sent out at the end of December and a second reminder sent out in January. This way we could let those GM's know if they were chosen so as to choose scenarios when this opened.

    If you are still interested shoot me a PM with what Special you are interested in as well as what tiers you are comfortable GM'ing and I'll see what I can do depending on the scenarios success conditions.

    As of this time we're opting to keep player sign-up for Outpost games limited to FCFS (first come, first serve) on the spreadsheet and PbP Gameday as our more 'open' convention in terms of allowing pre-mustered/mostly pre-mustered groups to sign up to play.

    There might be something off with the Google form, then. It asks what type of recruitment.

    Okay, thanks. Gameday 2019 was my first online convention so I assumed everything would be run like that.

    Yup, there is still one of the pesky questions that snuck through towards the end. I will take care of it soon. * Grabs flamethrower*

    Whereas I don't follow the discussion threads for the lodges, figuring that announcements for events would show up in the organized play forums, like this one did. If that means I'm too late to the ball, ah well and no worries.

    Will do what I can to get you all in. We tried a slightly different approach this Con since one of the main complaints we were receiving was being identified as a GM for a Special later in the process led to several GM's signing up for more games than they expected and then getting overloaded.

    So we tried to send out the Special form earlier to identify GM's just before the announcement so that they could adjust accordingly.

    So this is my first time doing an online con. If I signed up for Discord, do I need to contact the main contact there in order to use their server? In this case it's Roll for Combat.

    Try the above link in the main post for access to the Roll for Combat Server. If that fails you then send me a message and I'll get you all worked into the discord server.
