I have a Dream.... Forge Con 7 Months, 3 Weeks ago  
Hello All,

OK I talked about it a year ago and see that folks are talking about it again. You guessed it forge con. Over the last year I have gained a lot of experience putting together conventions for work. The participants number from 20-400. I feel confident that I can do this. What I have found is that most folks like other things to do at cons and easy access to food and affordable rooms. I have also found that a committee works best. To that extent in 16 days I will be putting together a meetup dot com group to meet using free conferences and email etc. We will be the first ever Forge Council. I prefer to wait 16 days from now as I just stepped down from 2 other meetup groups I managed. I would like to wait until after the 15 days that it takes for that stuff to settle down as it transitions from me to someone else. Once I get through that I will start up a meetup group. I am in a unique position to help get us some sponsorship. Please look for more information coming soon.

This does sound promising, I would love to contribute but I am spread a bit thin already. I will try to keep an eye out so that if I see a way I can help I will volunteer promptly!

My players rue the day I bought "Dragon Mountain". Ever since they give every creature a bit more respect. You never know when the GM will decide that this group is crafty...

Count me in as someone else interested in helping out. Though I have no-Con experience. (I have organized sporting competitions, accommodating 1000+ competitors over a two day time period, however)

Unsolicited Advice the First:

Since DF is about settings and scenery, the video room showings should be selected not solely for their cinematic merit but for the sets and locations. If you can't think of 3 scenes in a movie that are awesome for the scenery alone, it shouldn't be on the schedule.

By this criterion, Krull is a good choice, and Reign of Fire is a bad choice.

And if you are showing a series or franchise, don't do marathons. Break things up so people who are into those movies can take a break and go do something else (including eat and bathe), and people who aren't into those movies aren't excluded for huge blocks of time.
