AAW Games is looking for #dnd GMs to run games at Gen Con 2020 (online)

Welcome fellow Game Masters!
Do you like to have fun and get free stuff?

AAW Games is looking for GMs to run Dungeons & Dragons 5e compatible games at Gen Con 2020 Online, which takes place from July 30th to August 2nd, 2020. 

We have selected 6 fantastic adventures from our award-winning Mini-Dungeon collection.
As a GM, you will receive everything you need to smoothly run your adventure plus a bonus reward for participating in this historical online Gen Con.

What adventures are available to run?
We’ve selected six adventures that cover a wide range of levels and themes.
Level 1: The Aura of Profit
Levels 2-3: Buried Council Chambers
Level 4: The Burning Tree of Coilltean Grove
Level 5: Sepulchre of the Witching Hour’s Sage
Level 6: The Lapis Maiden of Serena Hortum
Levels 6-7: Tiikeri’s Revenge

How can I run the adventures?
Each of the selected adventures has a full color PDF and is also Fantasy Grounds Classic and Fantasy Grounds Unity compatible. You may run this in any fashion so long as permitted by Gen Con Guidelines. This also includes platforms such as Discord, Zoom, etc.

How do I sign up?
First and foremost, register at Gen Con!
Then send an email to gencon@aawgames.com by July 19th and include the following information:
(IMPORTANT NOTE: Make sure you whitelist the above email address, otherwise our replies will likely end up in your spam folder!)

  • Name of chosen adventures
  • Time slots and alternate time slots you’d like to run the adventures
  • Email address you used to register at Gen Con
  • Platform(s) you are using to host your games (Fantasy Grounds, Roll20, Zoom, etc.)
  • Email address you’ve used for your platform(s) (Fantasy Grounds, Roll20, Zoom, etc)
  • Do you need pre-generated characters? We have six pregens levels 1-6.

Final Steps
Once we receive your email, we will confirm your details and register the event. Please do not register the event yourself, as we’d like to have unified and consistent messaging. Once registered, you will receive everything you need to run your event.

Once your games have been confirmed, feel free to promote your games on social media, tagging AAW Games wherever you may go!

Happy Gen Con 2020!

Cliffton Anthony Jones

Cliffton Anthony Jones, 49, died February 14, 2014, in Bellevue, WA. He was born April 1, 1964, the beloved only child of Percival and Evonne Jones. A co-founder of game company Wizards of the Coast, he most recently served as IT director at Seattle-based Gen Con. Mr. Jones enjoyed games, music, travel, and sports, and was well known for his warm heart and infectious laugh. He is survived by his parents and the many friends he made everywhere he went.

I would personally like to thank CJ for all his contributions to Adventureaweek.com, specifically- creating and managing the development of adventure conversions into the Fantasy Grounds virtual tabletop by SmiteWorks. CJ was my go-to-tech guy, my Dungeon Master, and most of all- my friend. He will be sorely missed by all of us here at Adventureaweek.com.
