I’ve found myself immersed in the Dresdenverse of late, playing a great deal of The Dresden Files RPG.
I’m running a main campaign of the game based in Portland primarily by play-by-post, as it is our “pick-up” game between sessions of Pathfinder and D&D. I’m also running two different sets of “side jobs” with my wife set in the same city. These have picked up in frequency and overtaken the main campaign in volume.
My wife and I have also joined another RPG group in Oklahoma that play the game set in Seattle. That’s been a new and interesting experience–very positive. It’s a good group. Their game master saw my website online and thought it was interesting and met with us and we met with them and voila, new experience.
So, lots of new Dresden action for us.
What’s your latest RPG obsession?
Today is International GM’s Day! Since 2002, this day has been set aside to commemorate the hard work that your friendly neighborhood game master puts in to make your game the excellent experience that it is week after week. It is also the anniversary of the death of E.Gary Gygax, grandfather of Game Mastering and Father of Dungeons and Dragons.
Game mastering can often be a thankless job with many long hours. Adventures are plotted. Props are made. Sessions are logged. It’s a lot of work to keep things going for a campaign.
So do a little extra for your poor, old GM. Munchkin a little less. Sharpen her pencils. Share an extra slice of pizza. Thank her for her time and herculean efforts. You’ll be glad you did.
