About the Convention

HLG Con is run by High Level Games, a tabletop pen and paper role-playing game company with an international reach. They are a podcast, blog, and fan community that engages with various tabletop role-playing games and LARP in a fun, and sometimes intellectual, way.

GM With ConTessa 

ConTessa GMs get a few extra perks for GMing with us, including: 

  • A 'thank you' gift bag from ConTessa, containing a variety of gifts from us and game publishers that donate content. 
  • Access to our Safer Space, even when you're not running a game. We try to keep a table or two free for 'open gaming'. Come by anytime to take a load off.
  • Access to our board game library. 
  • Access to our emergency supplies bin, which contains pens, pencils, scrap paper, paper pads, hand sanitizer, and other items you might find yourself in need of last-minute. 
  • Large, dry erase game mats with a square grid on one side, and a hex grid on the other as well as extra markers and erasers for GMs to use while running their games. 
  • The pleasure of knowing you're inspiring others through representation. Our GMs are superheroes who actively make gaming better by serving as positive representatives. 

We accept all types of events as ConTessa events. The only requirement is that the event is led by at least one marginalized person (people of color, disabled, LGBTQ+, non-binary, and women).  

GM Badges: GMs who contribute a minimum of 8 hours of content will be provided with a free convention pass for the entire weekend (does not include admission to any of the separately ticketed LARP events).
