Unsurprisingly I met Rich in a convention game he was running. It was Conquest, back when it was at the Elk's Lodge. I also met Mike Bogan in that game, and, as appropriate to a Buffy game spoofing the 80s Brat Pack movies (the game was "Better off Undead") we had hilarious hi-jinks together.
This year, in place of the previous Big Bad GM competition, we are debuting a new event -- The Big Bad Gauntlet. BBG is a new co-op game structure that pits both the players and the GMs against a single adversary.
Game submissions closed but we're taking a few more games... Big Bad Con is looking for great gamemasters to run great games that challenge, delight, and welcome our attendees. Run enough games, and we will cover your badge!
Big Bad Con is committed to cultivating a spectacular and diverse gaming community. Our Scholarship Fund goes towards travel, hotel, and badge fees for attendees from marginalized groups who need assistance. In 2019 we were able to offer 20 scholarships up from 13 in 2018, 11 in 2017, up from 7 in 2016, and 4 in 2015.
