Greetings, Gamers of Storied persuasion! It is imperative that I inform you, in just two short months the Portland area's Gamestorm Convention will be coming to the Vancouver Hilton, March 22 to 25. Within the varied events of that convention lurks Indie Hurricane! the Portland indie game community's showcase of self-published roleplaying most delightful!
I find myself charged with Hurricane Herding for the second year running, and I harbor huge hopes for this year. Capitalizing on the burst of enthusiasm recorded here on this very Internet forum site
, it is my fondest wish to extend an invitation to not only to attend, but also to contribute to the scheduled lineup of story gaming amazitude.
How, you ask? That's an excellent question! I can already see that you are just the sort of astute and proactive facilitator we need rocking the roster. The answer comes in two parts:
Part 1 is Registration
. Follow the link to register online by March 7 for the best rate, and the ability to sign up in advance for games. Player signups will open sometime in February.
Part 2 is creating a profile
on the Gamestorm website. Then head to the Gamestorm schedule page
to submit proposals. I believe you can do this even before you've paid for your Membership, though of course you'll have to register and pay before attending!
I'll be scheduling the Indie Hurricane games in set blocks. This prevents events on the Indie Hurricane track from having awkward overlaps with each other, and gives us meal breaks at 1 and 6 so we can be social together.
The gaming blocks are:
When you submit a proposal, let me know in the special instructions which block you prefer. You can also specify if you'd like a table in the Birch room or in the lobby just outside it. And remember to sort your event to the Indie Hurricane track, emblazoned in the unmistakable and striking Pink Banner of indie pride!
Time is of the essence so we can have a robust schedule of games when the player signups begin in a couple of weeks. With your help I am confident this year's Hurricane will be a veritable tempest!
