This subreddit is for Game Masters (GM's) of Tabletop RPG's. It's for advice and questions, newbies and wizened old grognards, and anyone (or anything) in between.

We are visited by GM's of many different games. As a guideline we encourage questions that are broad enough to be answered by everyone. System specific (mechanical) questions are allowed also although you may receive better help on the main and/or GM'ing subreddit of said game.
