Game/event room allocation
You will be required to meet with the game/event organiser at their table in the Registration Hall at the start of the session. For your session, the organiser will either run the game/event or allocate a GM (Games Master) to run the session for them, and you will be told which room to go to. If your GM does not hear from you or any member of your team if you are in one within 15 minutes of a session start time, he/she may declare the session cancelled. Similarly if your GM does not turn up within 15 minutes of start of session, or provide some indication of a revised start time, you may claim a refund for that session.
