As the new Director of Organized Play, I would like to introduce myself and invite you to join me at the game table this year. My name is Todd Gardiner and I am tasked with getting more people to have their first experience with Chaosium games and making more opportunity for existing players to play more in our worlds.Whether it is Call of Cthulhu, Heroquest, or any of our other great games, these games are top notch experiences and we want more people to have a chance to play them. To do that, we need more GMs running sessions. Both demos and full game sessions. It is our goal to support that effort by GMs. The first step is getting a pool of people who are interested. As our first push in recruitment this year, we would like existing GMs who plan to go to any conventions this year to fill out this survey: Chaosium GM Info Form We hope to hugely boost the number of games being run in 2016. In particular at GenCon. Feedback from this huge event says that literally hundreds of players would have played Call of Cthulhu at GenCon if they could have found an event listing that wasn't full. We need far more GMs to meet the needs of GenCon, and likely, every other event this year. We want to hear where you are going to attend, what support would be best to get you running games, and what systems you are comfortable running. And we want to remind you that Chaosium already has an incentive program. For each event you run, we offer a $3 discount on the Chaosium website after that completed event is registered with us. Your survey response can help us build on that. Be aware that this recruitment push is also matched by efforts on our end to get to more conventions, to run quick demos on Call of Cthulhu and other games, to have game designers present for seminars and conversations. While we can't reach everywhere, we do want to expand our presence and stand side-by-side with you at these conventions. Join us this year in sending mighty heroes on great quests, in blasting the sanity of unsuspecting investigators, or in introducing your own worlds built on our systems to new players. See you at the table! --Todd Gardiner Director of Organized Play and Event Coordinator Chaosium Inc.
