Endless Journeys begin here.

We're back! October 6th, 7th and 8th of 2017 will see the return of VirtuaCon self-dubbed as "The Best 3 Days in Virtual Gaming" and we plan on making this our best event. The entire three days are setup like a real convention - with speaking panels, contests, tavern hangouts and, of course, tons of gaming. Our theme this year is Endless Journeys, a fitting theme for a con that could involve any genre of game!

You are free to run any game you like - but be aware that some games will be more popular than others. As cool as a My-Little-Ponies-Cthulhu crossover is, it might have a more limited pool of players than a traditional Dungeons & Dragons 5e game. We encourage games that are outside the norm - but if you want to ensure your games are brimming with players, you'll have to do a good sell-job on your game pitch!

GM Sign-Up Checklist - Here's what you need to do...

Preliminaries
1. Have an RPG Geek Account. If you don't, simply Register (free). You will need this to post your game pitches to this thread as well as answer questions which might come up on your game (when we start player-sign-ups starting in September).
2. Have a Warhorn account and register for the con. We will be using Warhorn this year to perform the event scheduling and game sign-ups.

Pitch Your Game by making a post below this one
(do these steps for each game you are running)

1. Pick the Time Slot (see next post) when you will run your game and how long it will run (in 2 hour blocks... so your game can run 2,4,6 or 8 hours. We are limiting games to 8 hours max).
2. Select the Game System you are using (i.e. Shadowrun, D&D 5e, Pathfinder, FATE, etc.)
3. List the max number of players you will accept at your table (do not list a range - assume your table will fill).
4. List the experience needed to play - we're only using a binary system here. No Experience Needed and Some Experience Needed are the two choices.
5. Determine if your game will run "on-air". In this case, the game will be broadcast and saved on YouTube so that others can watch it (yes, even at a later date). On-Air games are, by default, 18+
6. Determine if your game will be open to anyone or if the game is 18+ (Mature/Adult).
7. Create a Description for your game. We need a short sentence to sum-up the game and a longer paragraph or three to share what your game will be about. Generally the more descriptive the quicker your table will fill... but don't go overboard. Soon you'll see plenty of examples below and you should follow their lead. Feel free to use images from our database.
8. Decide how you will run the game. While we ask that the system must video based, please do not use any text-only systems (e.g. IRC, slack, etc). We are not requiring anyone to strictly use Google Hangouts, so you may use anything you want as long as it is free to everyone.
8. Post all this information below by replying to this post.
9. Once your game is approved, it will be added to a geeklist of con games as well as Warhorn. When registrations are opened, you will be asked to sign up as the GM for your game on Warhorn. We will work with you to get player information. (Please allow a day or two for this to get onto the geeklist or Warhorn.)

Recommended, but Optional:
1. Test your media of choice before your game to ensure your video and mic is working properly. (A webcam is not required for any game, especially if you do not feel comfortable with it.)

Follow-up
1. Promote your game (and VirtuaCon '17) through any social media venue you have access to. We have a number of awesome Virtuacon '17 Promo Images you are free to use. When linking back to Virtuacon, please use the master URL which is https://www.rpggeek.com/wiki/page/Virtuacon17
3. Generate Pregen Characters (Optional, as needed) for use during your game. Except for games where character generation is a big part of the interaction in the game, we recommend pre-gens be provided so as to get players into the game quickly.

For those signing up, we've got some cool virtual swag:
mb - Virtuacon '17 - Oct6-8th, 2017 at RPG Geek!
mb - Virtuacon '17 - Game Master

And look for the organizers by their green badge:
mb - Virtuacon '17 - Event Staff

And, to sweeten the virtual pot, this year we have real virtual prizes (plus an oxymoron!) for each 2+ hour game that is run at our event. You can see the full list of prizes from our Virtuacon Prize Table.

Feel free to ask other questions below - don't be shy... we want to help!

Deadline for GM Signup is 01-October-2017

Here is an example of a game listing... if you Quote this thread you can simply change it for the game you are running and it will have the proper format...

Time-Slot P: 7-Oct-2017 at 22:00 UTC
Game Duration: 4 hours
Adventure: Demon Dogs! A Thundarr Adventure Powered by Mutant Future
Game: Mutant Future
Game Master: trevlix (+Tyler Hudak) <-- You do not have to put your real name if you don't want to.
Genre: Post Apocalyptic
Brief: A rift in time brings two Thundarrs together for double the mayhem!
Experience: None Required (Rules Taught as needed)
Pre Gens: Pregenerated Characters Provided
Run on: Where will this game be run? Google Hangouts, roll20, etc?
On Air: This game will not broadcast on-air
Maturity: 18+ Only
Seats Available: 6

Details
Evil Sorcerers never know when to quit. One particularly evil and powerful Sorcerer named Malloc has finally created a blend of pseudo-science-magic to jump through time. But it has caused an unbalance that will throw the Earth back into a second darkness. Thundarr, and his band of allies; Ookla the Mok and Princess Ariel ride to save the day. The problem: their assault on Malloc fails and they are thrown back from his powerful magic. Thinking quickly, they use the Evil Sorcerer's power to their own benefit - they travel back two weeks in time to meet with their former selves and mount a double-team comeback/throwback against Malloc.

This adventure will feature a dual set of characters for a total of 6 players. Is the world ready for two Thundarr the Barbarians?! We will find out on the 24th of October! This adventure will be whimsical, tongue-in-cheek and totally gonzo. If you are looking for something more realistic, this isn't the adventure for you!

Ookla, Ariel... Ariel, Ookla... RIDE!

But, ever since a strange play has become popular, some of the tramps seem to acting... odd. You're sure it's nothing, but still... you can't help but wonder who that dark stranger in the shadows at the back of the alley is.

When an Unrecovered Annunaki Device is found on the edge of the Forest of Whispers, the Harbatim (recovery engineers) sent by Isin, the politically neutral city-state dedicated to medicine and medical technology, must contend with a rival team from Eridu, a city-state with powerful allies, as to which will recover and potentially benefit from the unknown device. The Forest has its own dangers - not only the animals and more lethal plants of the Grosvenor World, but the ghost circles, places where tragic deaths occurred and where the tortured spirits may still remain. The device itself may be the most dangerous part - nobody knows what it does, or how it will react to attempts at recovery and relocation. Can the Harbatim survive the Forest, the device, and their fellow Samsut, and return to Isin with an advantage won for their home city-state?

This is amazing! Keep the games coming! We'll add them all into warhorn/geeklist in the next week or so!

Also, I initially forgot to add the following line in the game template:

Quote:
Run on: Where will this game be run? Google Hangouts, roll20, etc?


so some game listings don't have it. If the GMs see this, please edit them to have it.

GLW FRIDAY AFTERNOON PPV: ROAD TRIP RUMBLE

Time-Slot A: 06-Oct-2017 at 16:00 UTC
Game Duration: 3 hours
Adventure: Geek League Wrestling vs. Gauntlet League Wrestling Cross Promotion
Game: World Wide Wrestling
Game Master: edige23 (Lowell Francis)
Genre: Wrestling...yup
Brief: Battle in the Squared Circle
Experience: None Required (Rules Taught as needed)
Pre Gens: Playbooks will be provided.
Run on: Google Hangouts with Google Sheets for Characters
On Air: This game will broadcast on-air and be recorded
Maturity: 18+ Only. We will use the X-Card given wrestling's sometimes problematic nature...
Seats Available: 6

Details
Gauntlet League Wrestling is on the road and looking for challengers from the Geek. PLayers will choose a playbook, make a couple of picks, we'll build a "heat map"...AND THEN IT BEGINS!

World Wide Wrestlinglets you play out the world of "sports" entertainment using the Powered by the Apocalypse engine. If you know PbtA, great. If not, no worries. WWW is amazingly fun. And here's the thing: I wasn't a pro-wrestling fan. I didn't know anything about it really, but when I played this I had a blast. It's a game about drama, trying to keep your job, and getting the crowd hyped through collaborative athletic displays.

I recommend everyone give this game a try once. Even if-- as I did-- you think Pro Wrestling's dumb. If you're curious, you can check out the sessions I've already run for The Gauntlet Hangouts.

TALES FROM THE LOOP

Time-Slot L: 07-Oct-2017 at 14:00 UTC
Game Duration: 4 hours
Adventure: Welcome to Wayward, OH
Game: Tales from the Loop
Game Master: edige23 (Lowell Francis)
Genre: Kids on Bikes
Brief: Kids in an alt-1980's investigate weirdness
Experience: None Required (Rules Taught as needed)
Pre Gens: Playbooks will be provided.

On Air: This game will broadcast on-air and be recorded
Maturity: 12+ Only. We will use the X-Card
Seats Available: 4

Details
Welcome to Wayward, Ohio. You play teenagers in the late Eighties, solving Mysteries connected to the under-construction “Loop Project.” Everyday Life is full of nagging parents, never-ending homework and classmates bullying and being bullied. You will encounter the strange machines and weird creatures that have come to haunt the countryside as the Loop is being built. You can escape your everyday problems and be part of something meaningful and magical—but also dangerous.

We will take the first hour to make characters from playbooks, build relations, and set the scene. Then we'll play out our "mystery". Note: I'll be using the scenario I ran at Origins (and have posted online), so if you've read that, you'll want to clear your head of that.

Adventure: Echo Wing - A TIE Fighter RPG
Game: Star Wars (FFG)

"Ladies and gentlemen, sit down. Our orders today are unusual. We will not be patrolling the LHS 3447 system as originally scheduled. A probe droid on a routine monitoring course detected unusual activity in the Dressel system at 0351 local. Echo Wing will be in on active standby while Indigo is checking it out."

This short one-off adventure stars Echo Squadron, a group of TIE pilots patrolling the outer rim. The game highlights two aspects of the Fantasy Flight's Star Wars RPG not often explored. First, the perspective of rank and file imperial officers. Put yourself in a very different set of shoes!

Second, the adventure's action segments focus on starfighter combat - something not always done in Star Wars RPG sessions. Take advantage of your TIE's maneuverability or you'll end up as just a tally mark on some scum's hull...


This game is the first in what I hope to be a number of events and resources to be published at Dark Echo - a fantastic group of gamers who came together via Elite: Dangerous, but who have recently formally expanded into other areas. I am a Fleet Admiral there, and the informal tabletop RPG lead.

Maybe you could pin the Virtuacon17 main thread on the rpggeek homepage. (I stumbled on this years Virtuacon-infos pretty much by accident.) Oh and are there any microbadges I could use for promoting the event before it starts?

Really nice that it's happening again! I had a great time few years ago. Thank you for organizing the event!

The GM sign-up thread is pinned to the main page. The primary page for the con is a wiki page, which I don't believe can be pinned up there.

Adventure: Finger Biter


Game System: Call of Cthulhu RPG 7e
Game Master: Thom Raley – Into the Darkness
Venue: United Kingdom, 1920’s
Brief: A friend has traveled to Scotland and gotten himself into trouble.
Experience: Some Experience with Call of Cthulhu RPG would be good
Pre Gens: Pre-generated Characters Provided
Run on: Google Hangouts - Ideally, you will need a webcam, microphone and headset, and a good internet connection. Bring your own dice and some paper to take notes.
On Air: This game will be recorded
Maturity: 18+ Only
Seats Available: 6

Details
Characters will all be members of a paranormal investigation group (The Blue Rose Society)based in London. Normally, they are more interested in debunking frauds and most members are sceptics; but sometimes there is no explanation other than the unthinkable.
Call of Cthulhu RPG is a horror/mystery rpg. It tends to be more role-play and investigation rather than monster hunting and killing (though sometimes violence is necessary). Characters gather clues and draw their own conclusions and formulate a plan to “save the day”… many go insane in the process.
I will provide 8 characters to choose from. Game may go longer than 4 hours.
If you have read or played “Finger Biter” before, please DO NOT sign up for this game…it should be a mystery to all the players.
