    Let's go with March 4th!

    Ultimately, I think it is up to spunkrat about the marketing of GM's Day but my feeling is that EN World could use the revenues from such sales to fuel what I believe most of us consider the best single site/resource for GMs that exists...EN World. With spunkrat's permission, I think Morrus should get some design ideas from some of the talent here in the community and get some t-shirts, mugs, etc. as well as some e-cards in production as soon as can be done.

    (He really ought to get some ENnies' promotional materials together also, IMO.)

    All in all I think GM's Day is one of the best ideas to be thought up in a long while and spunkrat should be congratulated for his inspiration. I hope some of the many publishers that utilize EN World as a conduit to the community would jump on board soon to help snowball this idea.
    Thank you Mark, and I hope it takes off too. Thanks also for the cool date. Concerning the date, I think it might be for the best if we go with March 4th. If need be we could just put it to a vote, but it seems more expedient to just go with that date. (It appears to be the most popular, anyway.) Does anyone mind this presumption on my part? If it's a real concern for enough people, I will make a poll...

    As far as giving Morrus permission to merchandise goes, go for it. It would be so cool to have such an idea take off, (even if it does end up all commercialised) and be able to say "That was my idea!" (and Mark's too - Thank's for the cool date)

    But remember at the end of the day it's about thanking the GM's. Sure we might sell loads of "World's Best GM's Mugs" but the important thing is that we let our GM's know we appreciate all the work they do to ensure we have a good time every weekend / fortnight / month etc. That can be as simple as buying them a drink on the day.

    I think there needs to be some sort of tradition tied to the day. All the best holidays have one - whether it's glutting on turkey or chocolate eggs, igniting small packets of gunpowder, or putting objects wrapped in paper under a dead tree branch... GM's Day needs something like that. Something simple, yet symbolic. Like treating your GM to nachos and Mountain Dew in bed... Mmmm.

    to the above: I'd be rather disturbed if my players broke into my bedroom while I was still in bed. Plus, my group has two GMs (we alternate campaigns) so they'd have to go to all the work of breaking and entering into two houses!

    Truer words were never spoken.

    Thanks for giving your go ahead to Morrus, though. As simple as a thank you can be, it never hurts to get the word out and give people some easy ways to express their gratitude. I'm guessing that's the whole idea (at its root) of greeting cards, anyway. *shrug*

    Perhaps if Morrus and the many publishers who frequent these boards step up to the plate with this idea it can really get off the ground and start to fly.

    GM's Day is a great idea, and March is the perfect month.

    Great ideas, all!

    March 4th it is! Well, for me at least. If the rest of y'all don't like it, tough! That's when I'm celebrating. We don't have enough holidays in March, and I'm pushing to get the day off for religious reasons!

    And the traditional food of GMs day has to be pizza and Dew, of course. Nachos are nice, but not in that "it just totally says I'm gaming right now" kinda way.

    I totally agree. I just liked the image of our GMs happily waking up to a huge bowl of guacamole & cheese-smothered corn chips. I thought it sounded more disgusting.

    Anyway, players really should be paying for the GM's pizza, nachos, caviar, whatever every time they play. Perhaps the point to make on GM's Day is that you're totally not gaming right now - you're just treating your GM, without expecting a game in return. Take the guy (gal) out to dinner properly - they choose the restaurant. If this works out, all the best steak houses should be booked out by mid-February.
