New Gamemaster Month Week Three, but if you’re just jumping in, don’t fret—it’s not too late!

Posted by Michael O'Brien on 24th Jan 2022

It's week three of New Gamemaster Month, and if you’re just jumping in, don’t fret—it’s not too late. You have a bit of catching up to do, but nothing you can’t handle. This is the annual month-long seminar in the form of twice-weekly posts, organised by our friends at Monte Cook Games to guide prospective GMs up to and through their first game.

Chaosium is one of the six game companies taking part, and our featured system is RuneQuest! Our posts were written by RuneQuest creative director Jason Durall, who has been playing and gamemastering for more than 35 years.

Jason's most recent New Gamemaster Month post is here, but you can start at the beginning here.
