Intercon is looking for more games, and we would like to encourage everyone to Propose a larp!
Please note that, as we continue to try to make Intercon more welcoming, we have recently updated our Proposal FAQ to include the following guidance to authors and the Proposal Committee:
we are unlikely to accept games that do any of the following:
- Trivialize the held beliefs of a minority culture
- Exploit the pain and degradation of a minority group
- Trivialize subject matter that may be deeply offensive to attendees, i.e. child abuse
We understand that these guidelines are somewhat subjective, which is why we rely on a diverse Proposal Committee to advise the Con Chair about proposed games. If you have any questions about this, please reach out to the Game Proposals Chair
We now have three videos designed to demonstrate this new website, put together by Nat Budin:
I’m very pleased to announce that Intercon S is using the new website software that Nat Budin and others have been working on for several years now. All of the functionality of the old site that you are used to has been re-created on the new site.
Here’s the biggest differences that you should be aware of:
In addition, we have changed the way that Comps work for games. Instead of offering 2 for every game, regardless of size, we now offer one comp to every game, and GMs can request more based on the number of player/hours of game they are providing. For full details, see the updated GM Policies. If you need help with this policy, please let David Kapell, the Con Chair or Philip, the Proposal Chair know, and we’d be glad to talk you through it.
