When you click on the Fall In website, the dates listed are November 15th-17th.When you go to register, that page says the dates for the convention are 11/7-11/10.

On the important Dates page of the Fall in website, it states the convention is Nov. 15th-17th 2019. Looking on the same page to the right it states under the calendar tab that the dates for Fall In are 11/7-11/10 2019.

Which one is correct? Because I have hotel reservations for the 15th-17th

I just checked the HMGS website. It's the 15th – 17th.

That's my point. The Fall In page of the HMGS website says 2 different sets of dates for the convention. And on multiple pages. Conflicting information is shown on multiple pages.

Just want to make sure the 7-10 2019 is the mistake and the 15-17 2019 is correct. And not the other way around

Correct dates are now updated. I hope everyone had the 15-17 2019

When will GMs be added to the event registration? Its been open for days now and they have not registered me for Fall In.

I gave up and paid for admission just to make sure I got into the games I wanted. My faith in HMGS is low…

A few hours after I post they added me. Queue conspiracy theory.

Got my GM confirmation today.

So is the PEL ever updated, or is it just posted once and done? Just curious if I should be looking at it as time goes by.

I assume they need sufficient lead time for the printers.

I meant the online PEL. I'm not saying they should, just curious if it gets updated as more games register after the initial deadline.

I downloaded and did a search and again, I am just amazed at the lack of games using what I understand to be the most popular rules for their time periods. I can't help but wonder if that affects attendance. I know I was specifically looking to play in games using certain rules.

We've had this discussion before. My take is that popular rule sets that make for great games amongst veteran players aren't necessarily the best convention games, which may have players totally unfamiliar with them. And a lot of times a GM will streamline and modify the rules to expedite play anyway.

I won an award at Historicon for a Japanese Samurai game I put on. I did not use my preferred rules and instead went with slightly more simplistic rules. The rules I chose not to play are by far more common and popular.

Just my 3 cents Canadian.
