    It seems you have to buy a badge ($20 and up) to run a session at GaryCon?

    Certainly looks like it ... Not sure how that is going to attract GMs for a virtual convention.

    Yes, Viv confirmed that on Reddit.

    That's a fair criticism - but it's important to point out a badge for GaryCon gives you access to the WHOLE convention - not just the AL games. You can participate in other events, play, etc. AL is just one portion of it (the portion I am dealing with and with which I've included additional rewards on top of what comes with the badge as listed in the link)

    I also listed some of the stuff you receive for purchasing a badge in GaryCon in the link thanks to Fantasy grounds being one of the sponsors - 3 months of a Unity Subscription for example along with other things.

    If you look at it as buying a badge to run a game for a specific event (AL) - it may not be worth it for you.

    If you look at it as buying a badge to participate in a multi-day convention, receive a digital goodie bag including items that typically cost more than $20, and receive additional rewards (also listed in the link) for specifically running at least one Adventurers League game at the event, and hopefully help grow the FG community at conventions - then you'll probably see more value in it.

    This! FG is regularly outnumbered at online events by its competitors 10 to 1.

    There will be other AL DM's who are paying to run their games using Roll20, Foundry, Zoom, etc. At least SmiteWorks is providing small incentives to their community members for participating in Viviolay's program.

    You should allow people to DM games without a badge IMO (or provide a discount).

    The $50 badge gets us the Trouble at Loch Jineeva tournament module... which is nice. But requiring people to pay $20 or $50 if all they want to do is provide their time services and expertise in FG to run a game for people... IMO that's a head scratcher.

    It's GaryCons decision to make the DM’s pay, not SmiteWorks. Viviolay is just providing awareness and incentives to offset the cost incurred to participate as a AL DM at the convention.

    I understand all that; at the same time, feedback is important one hopes.

    Sorry about that John, the directness of the quote seemed to me to be directed at the OP as if she were in control of the pricing model. I was probably overreacting and misinterpreted your intent.
