Missoula's Science Fiction & Fantasy Convention

MisCon 33: Level Up!, May 24 - 27, 2019 Missoula, Montana

Greg Schneider

MisCon 33 Panel Volunteer

Greg is a life long gamer and has been running events at Miscon for the past twenty years.  He has run a game store, run a gaming convention, written a gaming column, been president of a gaming club and started Black Shield Productions, a gaming event company.  Greg is currently working on Fantasy Live, a live action D&D style role-playing game and will be hosting a prototype of Fantasy Live Friday and Saturday nights.

Greg had been coming to Miscon since he graduated college and has run a really large number of role-playing sessions. So many that he decided to get help in 2012, started Black Shield Productions and got paid to GameMaster so he could call himself a professional GM. Unfortunately, Black Shield Productions was really good at what it did, and has been spiraling out of control for years, gathering up a bunch of awesome game masters and running unique events conventions throughout the northwest and bringing solid weekend of gaming to Miscon each year. Greg loves to talk to new gamers or anyone interested in the world of GMing, so if your social anxiety isn't to much, feel free to say hello. Not at the convention, he also goes to work helping bring transparency to the world of campaign finance.
