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! :D

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.
Where are the cheetohs!!???

What about a Player's Day? Too many people hype about the DM being God. We need to foster more active players. Thus spake LostSoul.

I used to ask my parents "When is kid's day?" to which they used to reply "every day is kids' day." I think the analogy translates pretty well.
That said, I am not knocking players - I am one myself most of the time. And it is as a player that I am proposing this day - because I want to show my GM's how much I appreciate the work that goes into their games - preparation that so often remains unseen. It certainly isn't about fostering the attitude that GM's are God.

Player's day?
Maybe we should just see if this one takes off first. :)

GM's Day

March 4 is ok with me but I recomend miniatures if we are looking for somthing symbolic. I know as a DM I like to use the right figure for the encounter. and nothing says "D&D" like mini's (except maby dice- but I already have all the dice that I need)

This is a sweet idea

I think it would be neat if this actually took off.

In order to reach the most people we should send something to the folks over at Paizo and even see if we can get a few companies to make notes of iton their web pages and newsletters and whatnot.

If you are volunteering, I am sure that no one will mind... ;)

Also, it would be a great idea for everyone supporting the idea of GM's Day sending Email to the various publishers and try to garner their support as well. It's all about mobilization of sentiment now, friends! :)

Whoop! March Fo(u)rth for GM's Day!

And only 10 days before my birthday! I gotta make sure I take over the GMing reigns again before then. ;)

May 4th

I like the March 4th tie-in. That's clever.

I also like December 20, which could be abbreviated as D20.

But, my personal choice, is May 4th, 'cause it's Luke Skywalker day.

Get it? May the fourth be with you!

Here's my vote!

1) March 4th

2) The traditional gift for GM 's day should be a miniature. It's a fairly cheap gift (if you're not buying GW stuff, anyway) and it is a gift that keeps on giving!

I vote for March 4th (it helps that it is 6 days before my birthday).

This is a great idea! Of course, being the GM 95% of the time makes me a "little" biased. ;)

I don't know if there should be a customary gift as such, as a GMs' players should already know his/her preferences.

What I do propose is that grateful players plan on running a game for thier GMs. I know that (almost) every time I get to play, it is a gift!

I may be able to help out on this end. March Fo(u)rth!

This is a pretty cool idea. Maybe various publishers could offer one-day specials for the "holiday" -- or gift certificates that players could purchase for a GM -- or...?? I'm in!

such a cool idea! March 4th sounds great, nothing else going on in March except for International Irish Get Drunk Day.

Shopkeepers should love it, great chance to sell off more RPG stuff!

As I'm one of the two DMs in my group, I agree that this could be an interesting man made holiday. Now if only work would give it to me off...

Perhaps Mark could tie it into the Games Day at Games Plus in Mt. Prospect? Move schedules around or something or a belated GM Day bash?

great idea! imma cast my vote for the March 4th idea too! the question remains though, how do we make this a more widespread phenomenon?
