Calamity does rely on volunteerism to function. Sadly, we don’t have 50 spare volunteers to keep you all entertained all weekend and deal with clean-up, so we do require players to contribute to the game in some fashion. We ask for 2 hours of your time during the game and will assign players some aspect of post-event cleanup. By pre-registering your volunteer slot and desired duties in advance, you can tell us who you enjoy volunteering with, the kinds of things you like doing, and if there are specific things you really don’t want to miss this time around. In turn, we can review our schedule and make sure you aren’t off tormenting your fellow players just when we’ve scheduled someone to come and challenge you to a shoot out. We can’t promise you’ll always get your ideal pick, but we can promise that we’ll work with you to make volunteering as enjoyable as possible. Doing your in-game volunteer time has the bonus effect of resetting your character's Deeds.
We are big fans of empowering our volunteers. To that end, we want everyone to get to do things that they enjoy and we want to take advantage of the many diverse skills in our player base. So we might ask you to play a named role one event, help with set-up an event, fight in the field battle, or even write and run an encounter if that’s something you’d enjoy. All encounters will be reviewed by the Staff for consistency, but we realize we’ve got plenty of people out there with years of experience or who have always wanted to dabble with storytelling. Finally, we always need some extra help at the end of the event with clean-up and break-down. Choosing a clean-up task can be done at the same time you select your mid-game volunteer time.
