Well, I was referring to WYC scheduling, not GenCon.:P

I hope I made the cut this year. Tenure counts for something, right? :)

So, should I stick to the simple TD shirt and fez, or go back to changing costumes like a teenage girl fretting about the first day of school?

I think any option that includes "like a teenage girl fretting about the first day of school" automatically wins

When is the deadline to volunteer?
I am still trying to come up with a way to reliably get from the airport hotel to the ICC without a car.

Normally I use a taxi which isn't too bad, but last year there was a $20 (roundtrip I think) bus service specially for GenCon. I bought a ticket in the car rental center but I think you can buy online in advance. Can't remember what it is called though. Google for "gencon shuttle".

Edit: missed the "hotel" part :)

Is Raptorov talking about getting to the con from the airport after arriving? Or commuting to the con each day, staying out by the airport?
My posts are back! Yay!

Check out the new Druegar token! Usable by all!

My hotel is at the airport. The challenge will be getting to and from the ICC without a car. I worry about arriving for the early shift and for the late shift and getting back.

I may be able to get you a ride or two. I live on the NW side of the city, and I can take 465 to 70 to get downtown.

Applied for Gen Con this year and WYC in case you guys needed anyone to fill in anywhere.

I have been selected! I am very happy, however it says the dms need to become certified and I am not sure how to do this. Also is there a volunteer part of the forum?

Awesome!

Read the DM, Coach and Player Guides. They're here under "resources"
Pay attention to the combat section. (I assume you're going to be combat DM.)
Don't worry about the underwater guide, unless you're just curious.
Read over the 4th and 5th level character cards just to get familiar with them.
Look over the token quick reference. Be aware there are set bonuses. Do not worry about memorizing them all.
That'll keep you busy until Stu sends you links to some training videos. Watch them. He's great.
You'll be sent links to some online tests. Take them. If you don't pass, retake them until you do.
Through all this, remember this is a game, not surgery. Do your best but if you make a mistake, its not the end of the world.

You'll be given access to the volunteer section at some point.
Gratz, and have fun.

Pretty cool, I will go over these in the next few days to get acquainted with as much as possible.
