2020 Vision…

Hello all,

We’ve got the dates for our 2020 Featured Game! Our game will be over January 17th and 18th, 2020!

We’ve got our location all locked in – the Four Points by Sheraton at Phoenix South Mountain!  Just like previous years, we’ll be hosting our games at a location where you can stay on site!

We’ve got our Hotel Registration information, at last – and wanted to pass it on to you!

Reserve your Rooms here:

Room Rates are 109$ per night, for a traditional room OR 119$ per night for a traditional room with breakfast!

With 160 comfortable guestrooms, on site restaurant & bar, over 10,000 sq. ft. of flexible indoor/outdoor meeting space; Four Points by Sheraton Phoenix South Mountain is where business meets pleasure. Whether joining us for business or pleasure you’re sure to enjoy our amenities and location. Just minutes from all major freeways, Four Points is conveniently located 10 miles away from Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport, Outlet Mall Shopping, multiple options of restaurants and entertainment to choose from. The property is also within walking distance to these shops and restaurants. Our on-site restaurant, Rustic Cravings, offers a unique and satisfying dining experience along with our Best Brews program which features a selection of domestic, international and local beers on tap. Happy hour from 6pm to 8pm daily. 

Character Sheet Requirements

Hello MESers!

T-9 Days until our Phoenix Featured Game, being hosted over January 18th – 19th, 2019! We’re buttoning everything up on our end, so we wanted to get the information out for everyone – important things regarding character sheets!

Our event is requiring two printed copies of your character sheet, with one copy of your XP log. Players will turn in one copy of their sheet for the ST Staff along with the XP Log. The other copy is for the player’s use during the game.

As a reminder, the character sheet in the Database is the “master” sheet. Make certain the database is up to date and matches what you bring in printed format.

The site does have an On-Site Business Center, open 24 hours a day, complete with printing, copying and office supplies as needed.

We look forward to seeing you in Phoenix!

realistic props/weapons

Happy Holidays one and all!

Phoenix’s annual FGoTM is just around the corner. We are SUPER EXCITED to see as many of you who can make it out to see us.
Details on the event can be found Here:

On that note – we all love our prop accessories, and many of us spend a great deal of time and money on them.  However, realistic prop weapons can be problematic for both the hosting location, and some attendees. 

Our FGoTM has *not* requested permission to use the prop weapons policy for conventions for MES.  So before you pack that awesome prop weapon to bring to the game – drop me a note first, and we can look it over together to determine if it will be permitted in the game space.

General rule – if a police officer, in a dark alley, might mistake your prop for being real … do not bring it into the game space for our event.

Now, we DO have an AMAZING photographer who will be be set up to do portraits for folks. If you would like to pose for photos with your prop weapons in the OOC room, you are more than welcome to do so.

If anyone has questions – feel feel to drop me a note and I will be happy to chat with you about this.

Looking forward to a GREAT EVENT.

Ever Forward,

Hotel Update, Part 2

Good evening all!

Technology is a wonderful thing.

At this time – if you need to book a room for our FGoTM – you must call the front desk of the hotel directly.

Phone number : 480 964 7000

The front desk will handle the booking of the additional rooms for the block, as these are not available for booking online. All of the regular rooms for the dates in question are SOLD OUT….


the Sales Manager has been kind enough to extend our contracted rate of $139.00 per night for the SUITES at the hotel.

I do apologize for the tap dancing on all of this, the awesome weather here in Arizona has made the hotel very popular.

We look forward to seeing you all next month!

Ever Forward,
