March Fo(u)rth for GM’s Day!

Today is GM's Day! GM’s Day was born on EN World in December 2002. Originally a simple messageboard post by EN World member Spunkrat (later renamed Heathen72), the idea quickly gained popularity, championed by Mark Clover of Creative Mountain Games and, of course, EN World itself.


This weekend was also the anniversary of the sad 2008 passing of Dungeons & Dragons co-creator Gary Gygax.

GM’s Day is an annual day to show your GM (or DM, or Storyteller, or Referee) how much you appreciate them. Publishers and retail outlets across the world now join in GM’s Day, offering discounts, sales, and other cool stuff. From a single messageboard thread, GM’s Day now includes hundreds of publishers, websites, bloggers, and more! In particular, check out RPGNow/DriveThruRPG’s massive GM’s Day sale.

WotC's GM's Guild also has a similar day today, which they call DM's Day.

On March 4th, be sure to show some appreciation to your GM – perhaps buy them a gift, offer to pay for the pizza that night, even a simple “thank you”.

I drove my daughter to her D&D game yesterday and gave her three sets of dice to give to the three GM's in the group. They were all really surprised and very happy! :)

Happy GM's Day!!! Thanks to Mark Clover for championing this day! Thanks to Mark and all the other GMs that I have gamed with or met through the years.

I have helped a few people in the past year become GMs, and it is a pleasure seeing our hobby continuing with new players. (I have some GMs in my group for Pathfinder Society who are in their early twenties. Also, my school has a gaming club and some teenage GMs.)
