It’s understandable that, with the resurgence of interest in the hobby thanks to Critical Role and other streamers, it’s GMed games that are at the fore. January saw a particular initiative to help folk become GMs - which is great - but the more and more talk I see about how to become a GM, how to be a great GM, how GMs are so important and scarce, the more I want to mention that not all rpgs need a GM. There are games out there that a group can pick up and play with everyone taking a similar role.
GMless games are my favourite type of rpgs. To that end, this month I’ve set-up a short-run blog highlighting GMless games that I and others enjoy.
Check it out and follow along if you’re interested. I have some ‘guest posts’ lined up covering games I’ve never tried. (If anyone is interested in being such a guest then let me know.)
My hope is at the end of the month to have a small resource to point people at who are maybe interested in GMless games but don’t know where to start.
