If you aren’t doing anything Saturday afternoon at Gen Con, why not consider joining us for the 2014 GM’s Jam (SEM1459210)? This event is focused around a fun give-and-take between Game Masters, Referees, Dungeon Masters, Judges, and whatever other Powers Behind The Screen there are. We talk about common GMing pitfalls, joke about player issues, and have a great time coming up with ideas, inspiration, and potential fixes for campaigns. It’s really just a great exchange of ideas overall. Hey, and as a seminar, it's totally free! Here’s the info and link for those interested:

This event is one near and dear to my heart. Because when you cut through all the drama and hobby silliness and edition wars and everything else, there’s a part dedicated to running great games, improving campaigns, and improving one’s craft at the gaming table. The tips, advice, and discussion on how to do that transcend a lot of different tastes and systems, and is one of the best features to me in all of Gen Con—making a better gaming experience for my gaming circle and myself, and improving my creations. The 2014 GM’s Jam is very much about all of that!
This is usually the time of year where I post with a great deal more frequency about Gen Con. For those of you who aren’t attending Gen Con or don’t have a particular interest in the proceedings, I promise that’s not the only sort of post I’ll make in the next couple of weeks. But I have to admit, the pull of Gen Con is getting stronger…
