To signup online for RPGs, please do the following:
Log in with a Warhorn acct or click on 'register to attend' to create a new acct.
Fill in all the appropriate information, please use a valid email address.
The system will create you an acct, email you and automatically log you into Warhorn.
If you wish, you may click on 'gaming schedule' at the top of the screen, to see the time slots of all the games.
Next, to register for RPGs, click on 'sign up for games', at the top of the screen.
Using the 'player' line of the drop down boxes, select each of the games you want to register for, up to 5 slots of games.
Don't bother to change the last drop down box on each line, just leave it on '(combat)'; that particular field doesn't mean anything for this event, for the D&D RPGs offered.
After selecting up to 5 games using the drop down boxes, click to save. Then click on 'gaming schedule' at the top of the screen and click on 'print a copy of your schedule', to the far right of the screen.
This will take you to a screen where you may print out a list of your registered games with times, using the standard print function.
Alternately, to sign up for games individually, while viewing the schedule of games, you can click on 'sign up' next to the game you want, then click the radio button next to the word 'play' and click 'save'. Do not change the information in the drop down boxes labeled (combat role) or level.
If you wish to register for games, but do not want to create a Warhorn acct or have questions, please contact the Event Organizer, Shannon.
Registering for RPGs is highly recommended, either by Warhorn or by email. Priority will be given to registered players on time for their games.
Registering for boardgames is not absolutely necessary. However, we are trying to ensure we have the right number of volunteers available to teach boardgames and have the right selection of boardgames available. So
if possible, please drop the Event Organizer, Shannon a note, if you plan to attend the boardgaming.
Several tables of various boardgames will be active from 11:30am to midnight. Boardgames will be provided and players, to teach the games, will be around during the entire event.
