Two Ways to Attend Gary Con XIV
Material - We are planning to return to the Grand Geneva Resort live and in person for GC XIV! This is the Gary Con most of us know and love, sharing the camaraderie of your gaming family as we shake dice, talk with our Special Guests, share food and drink and walk the Exhibit Halls together. Of course we are still in uncharted territory as we work our way through the Coronavirus pandemic. Gary Con WILL follow national, state, regional and local authorities directions on health and safety for large gathering as deemed appropriate by our management. This may impact how we operate features of the convention. We are offering four primary player badges this year, Silver, Gold, Platinum and Diamond. Please click the link below to see the details of each badge.
Ethereal - We are keeping the virtual aspect of Gary Con going. So many people joined us from all over the world over the last two years we wanted to keep Gary Con global. You can purchase a badge and attend using our Discord server as our virtual convention hall. You can host games there or Zoom, Skype or any one of the many VTT's out there by communicating with your players directly via TTE.
There are currently two levels of badges for Ethereal attendees. The basic Ethereal Badge allows participation in all four days of Gary Con, and the Astral Badge that comes with early event registration and a digital swag bag from our generous sponsors. GMs are needed for both the physical and virtual conventions, so please submit your favorite scenarios and create new stories with us. Don't forget the great virtual GM Rewards too.
