This is the current summary. Please do not post in this thread; if you have comments or offers to make either PM those to relevant folk or post them in the original NWCon 4 thread.

NWCon 4 will run from Fri, Sept 26 thru Sun, Sept 28.

Suggested staff [Lazybones]

* Organizer - Karvon (chair of event committee, responsible for seeing that everything gets done)
* Public relations/advertising -Skunkeen (post info at the Vault, other NWN1/2 sites, Bioware forums, etc... be creative). Getting an artist on board is helpful, as a logo helps capture the event and make it more impressive.
* Prize coordinator - Dane Bramage (collects prizes/commitments from NWCers, contacts Bioware/Obsidian to see if they have any swag lying around, runs mechanism for selecting recipients, responsible for seeing that prizes are sent from those donating to winners). Even if this is just a few NWCon T-shirts this makes a big difference, in my opinion.
* Games coordinator - Karvon (responsible for keeping the scheduling thread current with the list of games)
* Chat coordinator - Dira (responsible for setting up and organizing the chat events)
* Welcome Inn coordinator NWN1 - Dane Bramage (responsible for hosting the PW that weekend, maybe setting up mini-events there)
* Welcome Inn coordinator NWN2 (responsible for hosting the PW that weekend, maybe setting up mini-events there)

Events

The Welcome Inn - online chat/event area
Open IRC chat channel

For those willing to DM/host events, please post such further responses in the NWCon 4 DM thread found in the DM forum, as that'll help sort things out a little more for us.

I'll update this post every 3-4 days to reflect additional offers/clarifications made.
