Submit a Game

As an official Game Master, you will be an integral part of the convention, since GMs like you provide a very large proportion of DunDraCon's total content each year. And because of that, we offer perks to GMs who meet minimum requirements, including complimentary full memberships for the convention and a priority registration for an official game. See each type of game for further details. And of course, you'll also have a badge with a spiffy 'GM' ribbon attached - no one else gets those. So, if you would like to run a con-sponsored game at DunDraCon please choose one of the following buttons and fill out the forms.

GM Registration

If you submit a game proposal to us, you do not need to register before the convention. The vast majority of those who submit games are scheduled, and qualify for complimentary membership, so separate payment and registration in advance is unnecessary.The Events Scheduler works closely with Registration to make sure that all GM information is supplied to Registration before the convention. For those few who don't get scheduled, they will be able to use the prevailing pre-con rate from the time they sent in their proposal, at the door of the convention. In other words, if you submit a game in mid-December, but it can't be scheduled, you'll be entitled to pay $50 for a full membership at the door instead of $60, and all of your information will already be on file at the main registration desk. If you do happen to register separately before the convention, we will refund your membership payment as soon as we are aware of it, both to make sure you have full use of your own money, and to keep our books as clear as possible of refunds at the convention.

Submission Notes

Please read our Game Policies before submitting a game.

Unless an earlier deadline is noted below, all submissions must be received by December 29 to be considered for inclusion.

We accept submissions only via this website, or an e-mail with the necessary information attached or incorporated in the body of the e-mail. We no longer accept submissions via U.S. Mail, as we need a working e-mail address to communicate with all our prospective GMs.

Important! You should have an acknowledgement of your game request from us within two weeks. If you do not hear from us within that time, please email our Games Coordinator. Every year, there are a handful of submissions that never reach the Games Coordinator for reasons outside our control. If you don't follow up in the event of a delay, we might never know you submitted a proposal.

Starfinder Intro Games Paiso has just introduced Starfinder, a science fiction variant system of Pathfinder, and we're eager to offer introductory scenarios for these games.
Details.
Submission Deadline: Dec. 10.

D&D 5th Edition Intro Games If you are an experienced convention GM, please consider running one or more introductory scenarios of D&D5.

You may use the books or the free download rules available from Wizards of the Coast.

Submission Deadline: Dec. 10.

FATE Intro Games Or consider running one or more introductory scenarios of FATE.

Submission Deadline: Dec. 10.

'Pre Scheduling' Games

Your game may be 'pre-scheduled' very soon after you submit it. In other words, the game as submitted will be accepted and will be scheduled within the parameters you have requested, but no specific time or location will be decided. Thus, you will know very early in the process that you will be running a game, even if not precisely when and where. We will honor the pre-scheduling commitment so long as you do not change the parameters of the game (size, length, acceptable times, game system) during the run-up to the convention. If you do make changes, the commitment will be considered withdrawn until we recommit, but the game is still eligible for scheduling (and in most cases will be scheduled).

The following types of games are not amenable to pre-scheduling:

Pre-scheduled games will go into the schedule ahead of all other games, so there is an advantage to getting your game in by November 1. As a practical matter, almost all games that come in after November 1 are scheduled, but not always at times the GM prefers.

The final game schedule will be set in early January.

Games for Kids and Teens

If You're Interested in Running a Game for the Teen Room: Teen room games should not be simplified or easier than other games, though they should generally be kept to "Family" or "Mainstream" content. Games run in the Teen room should meet the same high standards as games in other areas. What sets Teen Room games apart from other games are GMs who are ready, willing and able to run games for non-adult players. Adults are welcome to play in any Teen Room game, but Teens will always have priority!
