gamemaster

Page history last edited by PBworks 14 years ago

Some of these story games give the responsibility for certain jobs in the game to one person. That person commonly gets called the gamemaster (GM).

 

Exactly what the GM does varies from game to game, but generally you can expect them to be responsible for providing a certain amount of structure, pacing and conflict for the other players to riff off. You might think of them as the bass player in your band.

 

 

The games that have GMs are listed here, along with a couple of notes on the GM's job in each game:

 

My Life with Master – the GM must play the part of the Master who orders the Minions to perform dreadful missions; as well as the Townspeople whom the Minion envies and preys upon.

 

Nicotine Girls – the GM must throw adversity at the girls and push them to complicate their lives; also to play some of the supporting cast (such as men the girls meet).

 

Primetime Adventures – The GM (called the Producer) must create situations relating to the characters' Issues, and respond to players' requests for scenes.

 

The Princes' Kingdom – the GM (called the Guide) must create the islands that the characters visit, and play the people of the islands.

 

Wuthering Heights – the GM throws melodramatic, conflict-ridden situations at the characters.


It's not so hard to try being the gamemaster with most of these games, and it can be a lot of fun.
