MACE 2016: Official GM Call #1


I might as well go ahead and make the call even though OGRe 6.0 has not been moved over. I will try to get to that this week or first of next. This is the pre-DragonCon call.  I will be making another call after DragonCon but space may be limited by then.

As we have been saying all over social media, this is the 20th anniversary for MACE. We want to go all out and hope that our GMs will too. As a thank you to our fans, we have made a new swag bag available for purchase here.

Many of our regular events are returning. If that has changed, I hope those responsible for coordinating those get to me as soon as possible.

For Pathfinder Society (PFS) GMs, it will be coordinated by Nathan Littlefield .

If you want to run D&D 5e Adventurers League (D&D AL), contact me or Tim McCrary or Bill Boivin.

For those that wish to propose scheduled events for MACE 2016, the best way to do that is through OGRe.  Go to Log in (Make an account if you don’t have one. If you were a GM for us at any point in time since 2006, you more than likely have an account.). Click Propose Event on the left menu.

If you prefer to email me, please include as much information about your event as possible. It is sort of a hassle to go back and forth with questions with so many GMs. Include game name and any link that will explain the game and/or provide the description, especially if it is a obscure game. Also include schedule preferences keeping in mind our standard 4 hr slot schedule (although you are not limited to that schedule).

Three 4-hour sessions or 12 hours of gaming gets you in free, with fewer getting you a discount. See our discount policy on our web site at for information on the discounts. If you want to volunteer for something like the gaming registration desk, the shifts are 3 hours. Kids program is 2 hour shifts.

If you are interested in running our Kids program, please contact me as well.

Contact Jeff at if you have any business or money questions, or vendor room questions. Anything gaming schedule or room layout related, ask me.

Thanks again for all you have done in the past and I hope we can work together again.

    I registered yesterday but have yet to receive an email to activate my account. Should I try again or is that something that 6.0 will fix? Thx

    Yea I have been reworking that code because of the bags and it is still not working right. You will have a code.

    I can not see a transaction with your name on it, so it might be under another name (and thus the email sent to that person).

    Ron McClung I’d like to. When I msg you, you had said to keep an eye out for a GM call. Is this not what you were referring to?

    OK, perhaps I am confused then… what do you mean by ” I registered yesterday…” … you don’t need to register as a GM, you simply make game proposals. Once your game proposals are accepted and on the schedule, you are registered for a GM.

    How did you go about “registering”?

    That second statement is not correct… read that text in red closely…


    Which means you do not have to activate your account to propose games. Once your games are accepted, your account will automatically be activated as a GM.

    If you registered an account in OGRe, that simply means you have an account. Use that to propose games

    Thanks. Sry. Ever since my 6 week long coma, my brain does not work as well as before.

    Not a problem, just trying to make things clear. I realize it’s not easy to nail down our processes and methods. All is good.
