Steve Segedy and Jason Morningstar do a lot of awesome things. One of those is organize and design badges for Games on Demand at Gen Con. The Goats agree, those guys have it down... so what are we going to do? Steal from them blatantly!
Some very smart folks like John Scalzi and Karina Cooper have pointed out the cons need to take a proactive stance to say up front: Don't harass people, it won't be tolerated. They also need a policy to back up that statement so con attendees and staff alike can hold any would-be harasser accountable.
Improv for Gamers, led by Karen Twevles and Mia Blankensop just had an awesome workshop on the 7/13. Because of this, they are even more exited than before about offering the workshop again at Big Bad Con!
What do these do? - These allow the GMs to give would-be players more information about their game. Is the game focused on investigation, combat, intrigue? Some of all three? If it's mature, is that because of graphic violence, because of sexuality, or something else?
