Dear Future Gencon GM / DM / Judge,

Over the last few years, the No Rails Adventure Team has been expanding and experimenting with many different D&D based convention events.  After many successes, we are expanding in 2018 to even more events and to do this we need more volunteers.

I hope you would consider joining the team in 2018 to run exciting and interesting events as well as share in the rewards of being a volunteer DM with the No Rails Adventure Team. 

Benefits for judges who work sufficient player hours may include some or all of the following rewards: (receiving all rewards would require running 16 hours of events)
- 4 day Gencon badge
- 2018 team t-shirt
- leading events interesting to run and judge
- Money paid for events run based on players attendance and events duration 

$3-6 per 2 hour event based on attendees
$6-12 per 4 hour event based on attendees
(Additional details closer to Gencon and assumes event has sufficient players to run)

Example: 
If a Judge runs 16 hours total of events, they would received all of the rewards listed and up to $48 if all events had all seats filled.

In pursuit of expansion, I'm collecting names of potential DM / Judges who may be interested in joining up for the 2018 effort Need more judges to make take the experiences we offer to the next level.

For inclusion on the mailing list, please send me a email:  msteinborn@att.net.  Prior DM experience is important, so you don't have any, get a game going!
