E.G.O. Volunteer Roles, Responsibilities, and Rewards

Evil Genius Organized-Play Program, or E.G.O. deeply appreciates the participation and support of our volunteers. The following guide lays out the different roles in which you can participate as a volunteer and the rewards that come with each role. Every role in E.G.O. has value and purpose, and each plays a critical role in keeping our Organized Play program vibrant, relevant, and fun. Whatever role you choose, we want your experience as an E.G.O. volunteer to be fun, fulfilling and rewarding. These roles are: 

Evil Goons (GMs): Goons are our official E.G.O. GMs who run E.G.O. games at local game stores, conventions, other venues, and online through our web-based app, Dispatch. Besides organizing and running games, Goons are responsible for maintaining the E.G.O. Code of Conduct at the game table.

Evil Minions (Local Organizers): Minions are our local E.G.O. field agents—they help recruit and coordinate local Goons and game stores (FLGS), and help to organize and manage E.G.O. events at local stores, small local conventions, and other local venues. When present, Minions adjudicate Code of Conflict issues that cannot be resolved at the game table by the Goons before these issues get escalated to Event Organizers.

Evil Assassins (State/Metro Coordinators): Assassins are responsible for recruiting, coordinating, and providing support for E.G.O. volunteers, stores, and events within larger areas like states, provinces, or large metropolitan areas. They also help organize and coordinate E.G.O. events at conventions within their areas.

Evil Lieutenants (Regional Coordinators): Lieutenants are responsible for overseeing and coordinating E.G.O. volunteers and volunteer activities in regions, such as regions of the U.S., Canada, and Great Britain. Lieutenants recruit and provide support for Evil Assassins, and for the Minions and Goons within their regions. Lieutenants are also the liaisons between the company and the volunteers within their regions and, as a group, between the company and the E.G.O volunteer program at large. Lieutenants also help coordinate the E.G.O. presence at large conventions and public events.

E.G.O. Code of Conduct

As an Evil Genius Games Volunteer,, you represent Evil Genius at E.G.O. game tables, conventions, community events, FLGSs, and online. We want to foster positive gaming experiences and environments in which all feel truly safe and truly welcome, and from which all leave the game table eager to return. How you conduct yourself and hold others accountable as an E.G.O. Volunteer is crucial to achieving those results. Accordingly, all volunteers are required to read, acknowledge, and adhere to the E.G.O. Code of Conduct in their roles. This Code governs everyone’s participation in the E.G.O. program and at E.G.O. events, whether they are in-person or online.

If you have questions about, or would like to seek advice or training with regard to, the Code of Conduct as an E.G.O. volunteer, please reach out to us on our community Discord server or contact [email protected].

E.G.O. Volunteer Rewards

All volunteer roles are eligible for rewards in the E.G.O. program. The primary way for you to receive rewards as an E.G.O. volunteer is to acquire “Evil Credits,” which can be redeemed for in-game rewards or, in some cases, for credit at the Evil Genius Games webstore (details coming soon). You earn Evil Credits when you GM, or schedule games at conventions. Note that larger events earn more Evil Credits than those run online or in the home.

Free T-Shirts: Evil Minions, Assassins, and Lieutenants receive free Evil Gamemaster T-Shirts to help them represent the E.G.O. program, and will also get exclusive access to other E.G.O. apparel.

Free Adventures: Evil Minions, Assassins, and Lieutenants receive free PDF copies of all E.G.O. adventures, both as a reward and to help them organize events. Stores participating in the E.G.O. program will also receive these files. Print-outs of these adventures can be freely loaned to GMs so they can prepare and run our games for players.

Developer Access: Evil Assassins and Lieutenants receive an invitation to an exclusive E.G.O. channel on our Discord server, where they will be able to interact as part of the community of E.G.O. producers, developers, authors, and game designers.

Inspiring Leadership: Evil Lieutenants begin play with 1 Inspiration when they play in E.G.O. games, to a maximum of 2 (above and beyond the normal restriction of 1 Inspiration per player). Other than starting with extra, this otherwise follows all of the normal rules for Inspiration during gameplay.

Evil Credits at Conventions

You can also earn Evil Credits at conventions by doing such things as volunteering at Evil Genius HQ or running Everyday Heroes demo tables. These credits are at the discretion of the convention organizer and on a convention-by-convention basis, depending on the need. Details of these credit programs will be arranged by the Convention Coordinator on a case-by-case basis.

In-Game Evil Credit Expenditures

In addition, you can also use your credits to obtain the following in-game items and services for your character(s) from REDEMPTION’s Research & Development department (RDN).

Stay Tuned for Achievement Badges and In-Game Rewards! 

Plans are in the works for Dispatch to feature three levels of digital badges—Basic, Elite, and Master—that reward your achievements as a GM or as a volunteer. Each badge is earned by performing a corresponding achievement a specified number of times. You do not need to be a Minion or Goon in order to earn badges. In addition to these badges, you will receive in-game rewards for you to use with your own Everyday Heroes E.G.O. characters. Moreover, when future product lines are released, as part of the E.G.O. program, the list of eligible rewards will be updated to include these game settings as well!

You’re Inspiring: Receive one point of Inspiration for each category in which you achieve the Basic tier. These special Inspiration points stack to a maximum of 6 points. Since characters can only have a maximum of 1 Inspiration at any given time, the excess points go to the other heroes at the table. This means that an E.G.O volunteer with the Basic achievement in all six categories will have enough Inspiration points to let their whole table start with 1 Inspiration. Now, that’s an inspiring way to begin a game!

You’re Extraordinary: Unlock one of the following Extraordinary Backgrounds from The Vault as an option for all of your E.G.O. characters: Divine Intervention, Ex-Monster Worshiper, Memory Altered, Occult Family, Raised by Beasts, and Soulless. You can unlock other backgrounds by reaching the Elite level in different categories until you have all six.

You’re a Class Act: Unlock one of the following Classes and its related Multi-Class Feats from The Vault as an option for all your E.G.O. characters: Brutal Warrior, Combat Medic, Combat Scout, Commander, Gutter Rat, and Survivalist. You can unlock other Classes by reaching the Master level in different categories until you have all six.

All participants in E.G.O. need to have an account set up on our web-based app, Dispatch. To get the app, go to orgplay.app and register an account. If you already have an account with Evil Genius Games, your same login will work.
