Digital Resources for Game Masters

Being a Game Master for an RPG can be hard work. You’re always preparing for the next adventure, re-reading rules to clarify what you forget during the last game session, looking for new players, and that’s all on a good day.

But being a Game Master is also very rewarding. You get to see players explore and discover a whole world you created. No two sessions will ever be the same, and things will happen at the table that you and your friends will laugh and joke about for years to come.

To work through it all, even the best of us need help once in a while. Reddit user TheAnchor4237 complied a great list of online tools and I wanted to pass them along with a few additions of my own. For those that will be attending tonight’s DM’s Class at Multiverse, these will be very helpful.

Dungeon Master 101

Multiverse Comics & Games is in search of Dungeon Masters!

Our D&D and Pathfinder groups are growing and in order to accommodate new players we are in need of folks that would like to be Dungeon Masters!

On Thursday, September 15th, at 6pm I will be hosting a class that will go over the basics of running a D&D session. I’ll talk about tips and tricks for keeping a session moving, how to make rules calls on the fly, and answering any questions you may have.

After the session, I will run a small D&D encounter with pre-generated characters provided to give you a taste of how I run an adventure.

While I’ll be focusing on D&D for game mechanics, much of what I cover will work just as well for games such as Pathfinder, Fantasy Flight’s Star Wars, Savage Worlds, and other game systems.

Thank You

say-thank-you

As many of you know, we recently had a break in here at Multiverse Comics & Games. As small of a store we are, it wouldn’t take much to put us out of business, and I’d be lying if I said the thought hadn’t crossed my mind as I was sitting there in the shop talking to the police.

We put out the first notice to everyone about what had happened later that Sunday afternoon, and I have to say the response has been humbling. Starting with Sean and JD who interrupted a Sunday afternoon to come up to the store and help repair the door so we could lock it. To Nathan, Colin, Scott, Alex, Travis, Will, Devin, Troy, and Case, who helped by coming in and spending money on snacks and games, and even offering to donate some change to help get us back up and running. To David, JJ, Tom, Kyle, Denise, Gamergy, KGRN, and everyone that follows us on facebook and is in our facebook fan group for getting the word out to everyone around town and to other shops to be on the look out for the missing cards and merchandise.

I’d also like to send out a big thank you Wizards of the Coast, who has sent us some replacement promo cards for our September FNM tournaments, and a box of Conspiracy that we will be using to host a draft with.

Multiverse isn’t just a business to me. It’s friends, family, and a whole community of gamers coming together to share what makes us all laugh and smile. Your support means everything to us and tells me that we have many more years ahead of us.

Thank you everyone.
