Dragonmeet GM/Event/Seminar submissions are Live

We've opened the website earlier on today, but this is the official announcement, games and events submissions for Dragonmeet are now live, we're running the same three slots we always do, 10:00 till 14:00, 15:00 till 19:00, 20:00 till Midnight, and we're looking for a broad range of games this year, with a view to expanding the selection available as we grow.

The link for the games and events submissions can be found at


We're going to allow prebooking for games, with half the money raised from prebookings going towards charity, there will still be a number of games to sign up to on the day, but we know how much getting a game in means to many of you and how popular games are on the day, so we feel this is the best way around it.

That said, we are also looking for volunteers and events other than RPGs to run at the event

Last year we had a multi room LARP going on that proved very successful, a number of games with massive prop support (you never knew Lego could be so much fun), a large seminar schedule and a number of shorter demonstration games running throughout the hall.  We had full day games of Wings of Glory and Zombicide, the Best of Essen, the Playtest teams, and a slew of new games, many of which are now finished and being sold at Dragonmeet this year.

But this year...

This year we want more games and more variety, if you've got a game you're nearly ready to send to the printers, we want to know about it, we want to see the range of things that everyone is dreaming of, and we want them all there for everyone else to enjoy.  The thing about games is that they're as unlimited as our imagination, this year, and every year after, we have intentions of showing the world just how unlimited we can be in our dreams.

So it doesn't matter how outlandish the idea or how you think its never been tried before, we want to hear about them, so get in touch and lets see if we can work together.

The other thing, of course, is volunteers...

Volunteers get the not so fun jobs, the ones standing by the door or helping with tickets, helping with the bring and buy, and having to make sure that everyone else gets to their games whilst not getting into them yourselves.  I have a great admiration for those who give up their time to work the con like this, and this year, we need more of you than we've ever done before.

Volunteer slots are going to be in four hour segments, 0800 till 1200, 1200 till 1600, 1600 till 2000, and after that time, the only people left in the building will be core staff, but we'll be needing a few people to help on cleanup at midnight.  We're offering free entry to the con for a single shift of volunteering, and we're flexible on timings if there's things at the convention that you want to do.  If you or someone you know want to help out, we're very interested, reply to this post or mail me direct and we'll gladly take your help.

The last thing is Seminars...

We always have a few seminars by the sponsors and guests, but we still have a few spaces for seminars to run, so if you have an idea for something that you think people might like, get in touch and tell us all about it, direct mail to me or PM via facebook/google.

But whatever you can and can't do with us, come and join us for the show, it's going to be awesome...
