    How to Run an Event For Us

    If you would like to run an event for Chicago Gameday, please follow these three steps.

    1. Post your event description in this thread


    Your event description must include the following:
    • Time: morning (9:30 a.m.) or afternoon (3:30 p.m.) slot;
    • Game system: e.g., "D&D 4e";
    • Event Title: e.g., "The Caves of Chaos";
    • Description: ideally, short and to the point; here are some guidelines from designer/editor Ryan Macklin;
    • An image: one you wish associated with your event description, or else state that you are happy to leave that up to me;
    • Content Rating: choose either "Kid-Friendly" or "Adults Only";
    • Number of Players: total your event can accomodate, not including yourself;
    • Table Preference: If you need a specific table or want to reserve the private room, say so in your post below. However, please be aware that table assignments may be adjusted depending on the size of your event. View a map of the Games Plus play area

    2. Make sure I have a way of contacting you


    Either like us on Facebook or provide me with your email address so I can add you to our mailing list. You can email me at buzz (at) buzzmo (dot) com. If you have Private Messaging enabled here at ENWorld, that works, too.

    3. Subscribe to this thread on ENWorld or else make sure to check it regularly.



    How to Be a Great Gameday GM

    You should create a safe, friendly space for your event.
    Introduce yourself and help introduce the players to each other. Be accommodating to people with special needs, e.g., someone who needs to sit closer to you in order to hear better. Be sensitive to players who let you know they are uncomfortable with certain topics your game may address; do what you can to make them comfortable. In short, treat your players as you would guests in your home.

    You should be aware of how long your event lasts.
    Four hours is the ideal minimum. Morning events should end with enough time left to allow you and your players to get lunch and spend some time shopping before the start of afternoon event slot. Afternoon events should keep both the Metra schedules and the store's hours in mind.

    You should come to Gameday prepared to run your event
    ...no matter how many people have signed up for it. If you don't want to run your event, let me know as soon as possible, and I will remove it from the schedule.

    I'd love to run an RPG in the private room, afternoon/evening slot, (provided I get the requisite number of sign ups by the time you need to make the call) with six seats for adult-folks and using 1E AD&D in my 40 year old homebrew setting of Grymvald. I'm open to hearing what type of adventure folks might prefer using those parameters.

    I'll probably take another crack at Translucent University. Put me down for a morning slot, tentatively. Might switch out if something good comes up.

    AVENGERS VS. THE GUARDIANS
    Two super teams. One Infinity Stone. Who will have it when the dust clears?
    This is a Marvel Heroic Roleplaying event for EIGHT players.
    (Marvel Cinematic Universe is considered canon for purposes of this game. I'll have sheets for the Avengers and the Guardians of course, but if there's another character you think you might like to play that would be on one of those sides (like Black Panther or Spiderman or Yondu, let me know.)
    Kid Friendy
    Evening Slot
    Bring fistfuls of dice.

    Buzz, do you think there will be any interest in a D&D 5th Edition adventure? If so, I can run either an Adventurer's League session or something homebrewed.

    Time: morning slot
    Game system: "Fantasy Heroic Roleplaying" - A MHRP/D&D/PF Hack
    Event Title: Burnt Offerings

    Description: "WE BE GOBLINS - YOU BE FOOD!" Five years after a tragic fire and spate of brutal murders, the people of Sandpoint eagerly anticipate the Swallowtail Festival to commemorate the consecration of the town's new temple. At the height of the ceremony, disaster strikes!

    Pre-generated characters will be available or you may create a starting character using the rules in the attached document. The document assumes you are familiar with Marvel Heroic Roleplaying and the fantasy roleplaying genre.

    An image: up to you Buzz
    Content Rating: Adults Only
    Number of Players: 4
    Table Preference: I'd prefer the private room, but as long as I'm not at a tall table I'm good.

    A Gameday regular was PM'ing me lust a few weeks ago asking about 5e games in the area, so: could be! You are more than welcome to run some 5e for us.
