    FG Con 12 - Friday April 13th to Sunday April 15th - Add Events!

    This is just a very quick announcement to let people know of the official dates for FG Con 12.

    It will be Friday the 13th (oooooohhhhhh) April to Sunday 15th. Starting around 5pm New Zealand time on the Friday and ending around midnight Hawaii time on the Sunday - over 72 hours of gaming.

    So, block out that weekend... Get your game(s) on!

    GM Event entry is now open. Player registration will start Friday March 23rd, 12 noon UTC 0 - so you have 4 weeks to get your events submitted!

    GM Event Guidelines here: http://www.fg-con.com/information/gm-guidelines/ (Including the link to add a new event)

    We hope to have offical support for various organized play campaigns - details to come.

    A few things to keep in mind for FG Con:
    1) Run the games using Fantasy Grounds, and the “live” setting. The GM should have a minimum of a GM/Standard license - SmiteWorks upgrade Standard/GM licenses to Ultimate for the period of the convention. With a standard license you can GM any players for the convention - with or without licenses.
    2) Run each session in a designated time slot - the length and start time is up to you. Keep to this time slot to allow players the chance to take part in as many events as possible - try to start on time and don't overrun!
    3) Use the FG Con website and event booking system. You can advertise events elsewhere (we encourage that), but all event listings and player booking have to be through the FG Con site. GMs are required to enter their own events so that they have full access to player bookings for review and communication. GMs are required to communicate with their players for pre-event confirmation and coordination.
    4) Use the FG Con designated Discord server for in-session communications.
    5) Only run games during the weekend of Friday 13th – Sunday 15th April.
    6) Abide by the instructions and directions of the FG Con admin team.

    More info to come in due course...

    Discord? Will there still be the ability to create game channels and such like we had with the community TeamSpeak server?

    Am working on logistics of Discord right now.
    A much as I prefer Teampseak there is far more traffic on the FG Discord server and will likely be overall easier to utilise that resource.

    I passed this information on to the team at Savage Mojo. Clyde and I will both be running games again at this FG-Con, this gives us plenty of time to come up with something new.

    I am in a few weekly games that use Discord and FG, and I have so much less trouble with it than I did with TeamSpeak.

    I use them both. Never had trouble with either of them. Just curious as to the reason for the switch

    I *much* prefer TeamSpeak however more players seem to be using Discord today so we are going to trial if for FG Con 12.
