Legiocon IX: Gamemasters Wanted

Legiocon Needs You!  In our ongoing effort to bring you a fun filled weekend of playing with tin soldiers, grognarding, junk food, and annihilating your opponent from the field of battle, we need your help to run games and organize battles.  Anyone can play a game, but it takes a true leader of men (and women, what with the changing times we live in) to manage and run a wargame.

We're looking for dedicated people who can commit to running and managing a game of their choosing at the upcoming Legiocon gaming convention.  We've even moved into the 21st century (ten years late) by adding an electronic sign up form.  We're not sure exactly how it works, but our computer beeps at us, some fans whir, a game plan prints out and we dance a happy dance every time someone signs up to run a new game.

"But what sort of game should I run?" you might be thinking.  Well worry not, the options are almost limitless.  Whatever you want to run is a good guideline.  Have a boardgame you've never found anyone to play with?  Sign up to play that.  An obscure miniatures game that, in exacting detail, simulates the actions of a French resistance action cell in occupied Nazi France?  Go ahead and lay out the details, plan the game, sign up and VIVE LA FRANCE!  Just want a quick game of Magic: The Gathering?  Open the form and sign up to run it!

Maybe your plans and ambitions reach beyond just a simple game.  After all, what is one game, compared to a series of competitions culminating in a final glorious battle for ultimate supremacy and title of "Best General of All Time?" (Or weekend, as the case may be.)  If this appeals to you, why not run a Tournament?  The Warhammer 40k tournament has been a staple at Legiocon for years, and we're always looking for dedicated people to run a new tournament.  If you are willing to shoulder this awesome responsibility, we'll gladly help set you up so that your tournament is a success.

So sign up now!  Run a Game!  Crush your enemies and see them driven before you, and hear the lamentations of their women! Kick the tires and light the fires!  Damn the torpedoes, all ahead full!  Join up and see you in September!
