Happy GM’s Day! GM’s Day started on EN World back in 2002, and is now in its 11th year. The date, March 4, sums it up: March Fo(u)rth for GM’s Day. Today is also the anniversary of Gary Gygax’s death in 2008, and in my mind the coincidence of those two dates, while not a happy one because I’d much rather still have Gary in the world, is fitting. He gave us a tremendous amount, gamers in general and GMs in particular. So sláinte, Gary, […]


Happy GM’s Day! This most excellent holiday rolls around every year on March fourth, hence the slogan “March Fo(u)rth for GM’s Day,” and I believe this will be the 10th anniversary of GM’s Day. (You can read about the history on GM’s Day on EN World.) In keeping with 2012’s “more meat, less meta” approach here on the Stew, we’re going to share some of our favorite cross-game-applicable (IE, not necessarily system-neutral, but usable with more than one game) resources. Resources, in this case, means […]


Happy GM’s Day! To celebrate this, the Earth’s finest holiday, I wanted to highlight some resources we’ve posted that relate to seven specific topics: Setting up your gaming space Props and materials Technology Prep-light GMing and improvisation Adventures First-time GMing Treasure With over 850 articles, these aren’t the only seven topics we’ve covered in depth, but they offer a good cross-section of the Stew and its 10 current authors, and they all feature evergreen articles — the kind you can come back to in six […]


It’s March fourth, and you know what that means: we all march fo(u)rth for GM’s Day! Happy GM’s Day from all of us gnomes, from the bottom of our grubby gnomish hearts* — GMs of the world, you rock! This year, we’re officially lame: We’re so insanely busy getting all of our ducks in the row for the upcoming release of our first book, Eureka: 501 Adventure Plots to Inspire Game Masters (announced last weekend), that we’re pulling long nights after long days and have […]

Well good old Johnny has decided to take a step away from his usual deep (and mostly bullshitted) posts about meta-gaming to try something different. I’m going to start a series of posts called Johnny’s Five, wherein I detail 5 nifty things about Gaming, 5 ideas that might help out a GM or 5 unique pieces of . . . something you can use in a game. You get the idea. Why Johnny Five? Cause the robot is awesome and Johnn Four was already taken. […]


In honor of GM’s Day, I’d like to help out the beleaguered GMs out there with some universal advice on how to be polite. Players, this applies to you, too! The Golden Rule: Treat others as you would have them treat you. There’s a reason this formula shows up in almost every human culture. Some general guidelines: Bathe daily, even if you’re at Gen Con. Hell, especially if you’re at Gen Con. Wear some kind of deodorant. If you think you don’t smell, you’re wrong; […]
