Want to GM? Need help GMing? Wanting tips on how to GM well? Come here to discuss Game Master related-topics and questions.

One thing I recommend is reading Neo Pikachu's RP Creation Guide (http://www.pokemonelite2000.com/forum/showthread.php?t=103040). Most of the GMing will be crafting a role play, which is basically the same as creating a regular role playing thread. That guide can help you step up your game.

If you would like to use them, Ant2011 has kindly started a map tile thread for you GMs to make maps with. The post is found here:

I am a DM/GM for several RPGs (and have been one for about 5 years now), and while I do plan on GMing a few games here I just have one thing to tell any GMs here: Your PCs, will do ANYTHING. Even if you don't plan for it, they WILL do it. Example: I gave a party of heroes in D&D bricks as improv weapons in their starting quest, they used the bricks to shatter windows on the tower. Needless to say, I ensured every monster heard the glass and they were "pwnd".

Plan for the random, and don't be upset if the PCs go left instead of right. You're the narrator for their story.

Best of luck to all the GMs :3

Quoted for truth. A little unpredictability always makes a game interesting and fun.
