About this experience

Learn How to be a GM Session 1 & Session 2


Come join us on August 6th and 7th from 10am to 3pm for a special Learn to be a GM class with GM Jerry and GM Bob.


The GM class will be a two-session event with over 8 hours of instruction on becoming a GM or being a better GM. This class is a great opportunity for someone interested in being a GM for friends and family or as a paid GM providing their services to gamers. Current GMs are also encouraged to attend this class since we can always learn and grow from others.


The cost of our GM class includes both sessions and lunch on both days provided by RPG Dungeons. Day one we will provide a BBQ lunch for the class and day two will be Pizza.


During this two-session course, we will explore the five hats that every GM must wear to successfully run a gaming group: Author, Director, Manager, Performer, and Referee


 


Session 1



  • Author - Steal with wild abandon. File off the serial numbers, tweak it a bit, and roll with it.

  • Referee - You don't have to be right, just be consistent and open to reason.

  • Performer - Make all the noises and go for it with voices. Let go of the idea that you must be good at it and focus on running an immersive game. You'll be proud of the outcome, if not necessarily the performance.


 


Session 2



  • Manager - Have a session zero using a template so everyone is on the same page.

  • Director - Don't push outcomes, nudge them. "Are you sure" and "that seems unwise" goes a long way towards staying on prep/on book.

House GM Jerry’s Back Story

You open the door to the tavern, and you enter a warm room, a welcome respite from frigid winter wind outside. The barkeep looks up to you and smiles a familiar smile. Most patrons are huddled at tables around a large hearth, warming their outstretched hands against the flame. A bard sits in the corner, plucking away at a lute and telling tall tales.

A lone stranger beckons you to join him, and he speaks:
My name is Jerry, and I've playing and running D&D since 1993. I currently run D&D 5E, and I love to introduce new adventurers to tabletop roleplaying. I can run prepared content if you want to play the Latest and Greatest module. I also have several modules from older editions that I can convert to 5E if you want a traditional TSR experience with modern rules. And if prepared modules aren't your thing, we can go off-script entirely and create a fantastic collaborative storytelling experience.

As a House GM for RPG Dungeons Gaming Center I will host games for RPG Dungeons and available by requests from customers who have a group and request a custom gaming session with a House GM provided at RPG Dungeons. Please sign up for our Newsletter, Facebook Page and Discord, so you can be notified of dates and times I will be hosting games at RPG Dungeons Gaming Center.
