What is the Gamers' Guild of Requiem?
The Gamers Guild is the group of people responsible for all of the fun activities that happen at the Marketplace at any given time. We are designating the Third weekend of every month as their time as they have asked "when do we get to be put in the spotlight to let the community know that we are more than just the final product?" Currently, they help ensure that Movie Night in the Marketplace happens on the third Saturday, so it made sense to continue with the third weekend being dedicated to them.
COVID -19 UPDATE:
All Gamers' Guild activities will be held online. We will be starting a community group specific for the Gamers' Guild and Space Station Requiem. We also have a public group that anyone can join on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/groups/2473049426245653/
What types of adventures are in store for the Hill Country & Bandera County?
Once many of the crew discovered that Ms Robin used to run a science fiction fan club down in the Coastal Bend and ran the gaming room for several years when Realms Con was just starting out, well let's just say they threw a few more hats into her box to wear.
Ms. Robin was able to reactivate her old Star Trek Fan Club, Space Station Requiem, through Starfleet Command. What is really cool about Space Station Requiem is that the premise for its presence is that there is this inter-dimensional rift that has caused many realities to collide at one time and place. This allows for a demo-graphical area that really can't support more than one science fiction fan club to come together to create a community of people who understand the nerd/geek community and culture, to celebrate their commonalities and differences, and to just have FUN with like-minded individuals.
There has also been a request for "game days" along with "RPG Campaigns", LARPing at the Ren Faires, and Ms Robin has got to say to the community "HELP!" We need the food stand, because gamers are always hungry; we need the Learning Pavilion which will act as our multipurpose building; and she needs someone to run the campaigns, as her hat box is already overfull! So if you are a D&D player, GURPS Player, or any other Role Play Gamer that is also a Game Master OR looking for your first opportunity to run a game, please email Ms. Robin at RequiemRanch@Gmail.com She will be more than happy to teach you how to run a successful campaign!
How else can we help?
Get involved! We will be setting up protocols for youth participation in Gamers Guild Activities, based on age ranges. Parent participation/volunteering is always encourages, because, sorry, Ms. Robin has been there done that where her youth program ended up being a glorified baby sitting service, and we are running a Marketplace that is getting more and more busy. We are looking out for the safety of everyone involved.
DONATE! Guilds of Requiem is leaning more and more towards incorporating as a nonprofit as they realize that they do more for the community, work with vendors with disabilities/fixed incomes, teach skills to the community frequently for free, along with many other charitable acts that go unseen by the public. We need building materials: Pallets, we are looking at some of those BIG spools to use for outdoor game tables, doors, windows (they can be old and reclaimed - just need to be whole and in working condition), folding tables, chairs, board games, storage cabinets, etc. Our biggest need is to have a building where everywhere can meet out of the elements!
