GameStorm Winter Update

Hello fans of GameStorm!

As we move towards the end of the year, and you work to find that perfect holiday game to give to everyone, we have some exciting GameStorm News to share. Lets get right into it.

Game Submissions Live Saturday Evening!

You have read that correctly. Game Submissions for GameStorm will go live on Saturday, December 7th at 5PM. People who are interested in running games that other members can sign up to play (coming later) can go to and begin entering their games. We will be using the same submission system as we have in previous years so you should be familiar with it. If you have any questions on entering an event, please contact If you are having issues with logging into the systems, please contact

Note that some groups do separate submissions of events (LARP for example) so please coordinate with our events team if you have any concerns.

Guests of Honor!

We are happy to have our first two Guests of Honor.

Our Board Gaming GOH will be Peter Olotka. A game designer since the early 70’s, some of Peter’s biggest known credits include Cosmic Encounters, and Dune (both the original and updated version). His history with gaming and his unique perspectives will be a welcome addition to GameStorm and we look forward to having him here.

For our Writer and Role-Playing Guest, we are happy to welcome Keith Baker. Keith is a well-known local Game Designer, and his work on creating the Ebberon world for both DnD 3.5 and the recent update to 5th Edition are exciting! Keith also has several other design credits including his other universe, Phoenix: Dawn Command. With this and all of his other work, we are happy to have this Pacific Northwest native join us.

Game Day!

Our Next Game Day will be January 4th from 9am-9pm in the downstairs ballrooms. As always, we will have a large selection of the GameStorm Library there, plus all of you helping us show off just how great gaming is with friends.

Help Needed:

As always we are looking for more help to make sure GameStorm is the type of event you are wanting to enjoy. We are looking for various staff in an assortment of positions including registration. If you are interested in helping our Next Planning Meeting will be at 1pm on December 15th at the Round Table at 6250 SE Foster Rd, Portland or you can contact us at
