RQG is part of New Gamemaster Month, commencing Jan 8th

Recommended Posts

Have you thought about GMing—maybe always wanted to give it a shot—but haven’t quite taken the plunge? What if we told you that by the first week in February, you could be an honest-to-goodness GM—and it’ll be easy!

New Gamemaster Month gives you what you need to run your first game: Inspiration, advice, and a step-by-step process that guides prospective GMs up to and through their first game. 

Each January Monte Cook Games runs a month-long seminar in the form of twice-weekly posts. This year, Chaosium is one of the four companies taking part. Our featured system is RuneQuest!

Each session will take you through a step or two in the process, with a brief lesson on an aspect of GMing followed by some quick, enjoyable activities that actually get you ready to run your first game. It’s not all academic, by any means—this is a hands-on seminar. By the end of the program, in early February, you won’t be a “prospective” GM any more: You’ll have GMed your first full-on RPG session, running it without a hitch and having a great time doing it!

How Can I Get Started Now?

The first post for NEW GAMEMASTER MONTH is up!—"During New Gamemaster Month, we’re going to give you the skills and confidence to become a GM. We’ll guide you through the process of understanding the rules, the setting, and your first adventure, and by the end of it you’re going to run a game—and love it!"

We're excited to be offering RUNEQUEST: ROLEPLAYING IN GLORANTHA as our featured game. Also on offer is Trail of Cthulhu by our friends at Pelgrane; Unknown Armies, by our friends at Atlas Games; and Numenera by our friends at Monte Cook. If you've never GMed before, come and give it a go!

This is all about initial planning for your game session - we'll help you wrangle players, set a date for your first session in February, and dip into the world you'll be playing in - for our featured system RUNEQUEST, that's Glorantha!

I've been GMing for over 30 years now (sob), but can I participate in New GM Month?

You'll have to use a sockpuppet.  We'll be looking forward to Sskatlos' adventures shortly...

We had a PC called Broze Monsterslayer. When he went in disguise, he used the name Ezorb (can you work out what he did?) but the other PCs joked that he called himself Ezorb Monsterslayer ....
