GM “No Show” Policy

We understand sometimes unforeseen events cause a Game Master to miss their game and deeply appreciate the hundreds of skilled GMs that run events for everyone’s enjoyment. We want to encourage timely communication and dissuade people from “no showing” the people that signed up to play in their events. If you as a GM realize you have an issue that will prevent you from running an event as scheduled, please contact us immediately. Nerdarchy the Convention expects every GM to contact the staff and inform us of a cancellation as soon as they know they will miss or cancel the event. For issues prior to the first day of Nerdarchy the Convention, please use, at a minimum, to inform us of the issue. Once Nerdarchy the Convention has commenced please report the issues to the personnel at convention headquarters in person. Any GM who, without proper notification, fails to show up for and run 2 or more of their scheduled events may have their current badge revoked and be banned from attending Nerdarchy the Convention in any capacity for a period of no less than one year. The length of the ban will be determined solely by the Nerdarchy the Convention management. We are compassionate human beings and will consider extenuating circumstances presented to us before enforcing a revocation or ban.
