Why have I been so busy lately?

Well, in the interest of getting stuff done, I am [redacted] going to make a local convention for RPG games.

And I plan to pull it out of nowhere.


I don't have a name... unless I go by [redacted] . I don't have a budget, but I am planning to pull something out of thin air for the greater Calgary, Alberta area.


We don't seem to have a convention for RPG players, and I have been waiting, and waiting and waiting, and I am getting sick of it, no one should wait four years, and it certainly doesn't look like I can just go to [redacted] every year, not that I have yet.


So far, I have most of the preliminary costing and quotes, contracts with the location, how to organize the events, but no webpage, no name and only about a third of the DM's GM's I figure I'll need.

And no idea on how I will disperse the ticketing.

I assume after that, I can probably pick up vendor support ( if I am going to get any, not really stressed about that) and probably contact the company I need to, in order to get the uh, RPGA stuff or whatever the new equivalent is.


Obviously that's way easier to set up if you say, had a business, or business interest in that.


Any idea on how one might make a portal for the collection of funds that doesn't look like it is a scam? Should I try to kickstart it? Should I start up an ETSY account and claim my ticket stubs are works of art?


If I can build it. They will come. I think.

 Contact the folks who run other small gaming conventions and ask them for advice.

There are online sites you can use to sell the tickets for your event, that will handle selling the tickets and getting them out to people.

A Facebook page is a good start for advertising, and there are plenty of places that will give you a basic website for free or nearly so, and help you set it up.


Finding people to run your games may well be the hardest part. You may need to offer them incentives (free con admission, etc.).
