Today is GM's Day, when players pay homage to the gamemasters who work so hard to bring them excellent adventures at the game table. Gifts are exchanged, RPG carols are sung, people gather together to light up the Dice Tree, and... okay, most of those things don't really happen, but how cool would it be if they did?
To see the history of GM's Day, check out the EN World thread that started it all
(thanks to Gnome Stew
for the link), and if you're looking for a last-minute gift for your favorite GM, DriveThruRPG
is running a lot of specials through the entire week.
March 4th is also the 4th anniversary of the day that we lost one of the founders of our hobby, E. Gary Gygax
. So if you and your gaming gang are gathering for a session today, consider marking the occasion with a moment of silence. Or a moment of die rolling. Your preference.
Finally, today marks the beginning of the first week of the third annual Read an RPG Book in Public Week
, when roleplayers are encouraged to bring their favorite books with them and read them in public, to make the hobby more visible. Be sure to get pictures if you can, and share your stories and links on the Facebook Page, Google+ page
, and Twitter (hashtag= #readrpgs)
