The GM Makes it All!
The GM makes it all,
Dungeons and trials that enthrall.
Worlds of fun and mystery,
Much more than players see!

Hey all! I was looking over the previous discussions in the Roleplayer’s Retreat forum, and I realized there isn’t anywhere to discuss strategies and experiences of being a GM (Game Master) for roleplaying games. While it’s always fun to cook up a new character for a new campaign (or just for funsies), most tabletop RPGs require someone to run the game’s world, which often involves very different kinds of engagement with the game.
In light of that, I wanted to make space for folks to talk about their experiences as GMs and ask any questions or talk through any situations they are dealing with. So whether you’re a Dungeon Master, Game Master, Keeper, or just a player looking to support and gain insight into the work of a GM, welcome!
