Happy GM’s Day 2013

By on 4 March 2013

GM’s Day was started on EN World in 2002 and was quickly given the catch-phrase March Fo(u)rth for GM’s Day! Six years later and the day would have another, more sombre, anniversary when Gary Gygax died. However, perhaps it is fitting that we celebrate the life of one of the men so closely tied to our hobby by also celebrating our GMs.

One way in which this is possible is through DriveThruRPG’s GM’s Day Sale (one of their biggest of the year). The sale starts today and has over 300 participating publishers (including White Wolf, Mongoose Publishing, Wizards of the Coast, Catalyst Game Labs, Chaosium and more) and over 12,000 digital titles!

Why not treat your GM (or yourself) to something new this year?

About Dave McAlister

Dave has been roleplaying for over 30 years, having played and/or run most mainstream systems with the espionage genre being an early favourite. So much so that, in 1999, he started Modus Operandi. That same year he joined the Sarbreenar “Living” campaign team as their plotline controller before moving across to the Living Spycraft campaign team (as UK Regional Branch Director) in 2003. 2003 also saw the birth of UK Role Players as well as Dave’s first freelance writing appointment (co-writing World Militaries and consulting on both US Militaries and Battlegrounds, all for Spycraft).

Since then, Dave has concentrated on supporting the UK gaming scene. He has organised and run several small, one-day, events and was the RPG Area Manager for Gen Con UK in 2004. His current favourite systems are Dungeons & Dragons (specifically 5th Edition), Savage Worlds and Cinematic Unisystem. He has a (currently neglected) blog at dave.mcalister.org.uk and runs a D&D 5e SRD website at DnD5e.info.
