Thank You, Volunteers
A resounding thanks to each and every Game Master (GM) and Dungeon Master (DM) who volunteers to run a game. Hotlead would not be the fantastic fiasco that it is, were it not for your dedication to creating cool scenarios that pique a gamer’s curiosity.
If you have never run a game before at Hotlead, we welcome your ambition. GM/DM registration usual kicks off at the start of the new year. However, if you need more time to plan your game, we can accept earlier registrations.
To register a table, please contact us with your choice of time slot and table size (see below). That and your name are the bare minima to ensure your table is reserved.
Complete your registration no later than Friday two weeks prior to the convention (Friday, March 15, 2019).
To register, please provide:
- Time Slot
- Table Size
- Game name
- GM name(s)
- Number of Players
- Game Scenario (for both our website and the pamphlet schedule we circulate at the event)
All game tables are first come, first served and they book up fast. So be sure to register early to ensure you get the table size you need to run your game as planned.
To reach out to those who are worried about attending, or cannot attend, in person due to health concerns Hot Lead will facilitate Virtual Games.
Any miniature or RPG game is welcome. If you wish to host a Virtual Game from the comfort of your home gaming space then please indicate this on the GM Registration form.
Once player Pre-Registration opens up, then we will send you the player contact information and you can send out the invitation to whichever platform you want to host the game on; Zoom, Discord, Twitch or Tabletop Simulator etc. Please keep the timings to Eastern Standard Time. But otherwise you can run as many games as you’d like, at whichever times you’d like.
There are a few differences for wargames versus Role Playing Games to keep in mind when registering.
- There is only one Table Size in the room dedicated to RPGs
- Period is not a required field unless your scenario lends itself to one
- Number of Players must be between 4-8 players, but within that, you may specify a preference
Miniatures are a must – we are, after all, a miniature wargaming convention(Due to the popularity of the Role Playing Lounge, Hotlead is waving this requirement if means having more and varied events)
At the event
While wargames are in the main hall of the convention, RPGs have a dedicated space in the basement more suited to RPGs as it is quieter. There are signs at the front desk of the hotel directing you. But before you or any gamers visit the dungeon, be sure to register for the convention at the Hotlead main entrance. As volunteers of the event, DMs are expected to redirect any gamers not wearing a convention nametag back upstairs.
