Proposing an Event for Intercon R

Intercon is the premiere Live Action Role Playing convention in the world. We've gotten this way by seeking out a diverse selection of LARPs, in as many different styles and genres as we can find. Ask ten LARPers what LARP is about and you'll get thirteen different answers. We're trying to find interesting games that satisfy as many of those possibilities as we can. We encourage new authors to bid games as much as we recruit experienced authors. We also encourage authors who've never run at an Intercon before to bid. Whether it's a new game or one that's been run before, we're interested in what you have to propose.

Proposal Deadlines

Intercon solicits bids for games in rounds, as needed, based on the number of registrants we get. It's our goal to have a great schedule of games up as early as possible!

Games with smaller numbers (less than 10 players) will be accepted on a conditional basis due to space limitations during Friday night, Saturday daytime and Saturday night time slots. Midnight, Sunday, and earlier in the con will be easier to schedule for small games. Also, if you are willing to run your small game in part of a larger space alongside a second game, please indicate on your form.

Game bids received before the deadline will be evaluated in a timely manner. Games can still be submitted after the deadlines posted, please contact the bid proposal chair if you have any questions.

Round Proposal Deadline Decision Date
First  July 1, 2017   August 20, 2017 
Second  September 1, 2017   September 20, 2017 
Third  October 19, 2017   October 19, 2017 

Intercon R actively solicits proposals in the months leading up to the convention. As the convention attendance grows, based on registration numbers, we may need a third round of proposals to fill in the slate of games already accepted for the convention.

Why Propose Early?

There are several great reasons to get your game proposal in early:

  • You're likelier to get the time slot you desire. As the schedule fills, the prime time slots fill up.
  • Your game gets more publicity and advertising. It's likelier to fill earlier, which will give you more time to cast and plan.
  • You get a better chance at attracting the players who know that it's smart to sign up early for games.
  • You might miss your chance to bid at all if you wait. There are many GMs who know how much fun it is to run a game at Intercon R!
