Submitting a Game

We are seeking out a diverse selection of larps / Freeforms, Live games, call them what you will, in as many different styles and genres as we can find. Ask ten larpers what larp is about and you'll get thirteen different answers. We're trying to find interesting games that satisfy as many of those possibilities as we can. We encourage new authors to submit games as much as we recruit experienced authors. We also encourage authors who've never run anything before to submit, but we would suggest a maximum of one game in this case. If you are an established group or GM we would welcome a maximum of two submissions, in the initial stages. If you're an inexperienced GM and you would like some additional support prior to and/or during your game then let us know and we will try our best to allocate you someone to help.

We'd like to give lots of people a chance to run a game. and we'd like our GMs to get the chance to play some games as well. Whether it's a new game or one that's been run before, we're interested in what you have to propose.

We will comp (give complementary membership of the con to) one GM per six players, and we are prepared to negotiate if you need something different.

1–6 players = 1 GM
7–12 players = 2 GMs
13–18 players = 3 GMs
19–24 players = 4 GMs
25 players upwards = 5 GMs


Please fill out the submission form with as much information as possible. This is the best way to help us evaluate your submission quickly.

Consequences schedules games as needed
to meet registration demands

Consequences actively solicits submissions in the months leading up to the convention. As the convention attendance grows, based on registration numbers, we may need a third round of submissions.

Why Submit Early?

There are several great reasons to get your game submission in early:

  • You're likelier to get the time slot you desire. As the schedule fills, the prime time slots fill up.
  • Your game gets more publicity and advertising. It's likelier to fill earlier, which will give you more time to cast and plan.
  • You get a better chance at attracting the players who know that it's smart to sign up early for games.
