The Role-Player's Retreat is an intense 3-day retreat for role-players, providing advice and feedback on GMing. Only 20 gamers may attend.

If you attend, you will…

  • …play 3 games that will stretch your GMing muscles (Fiasco? Burning Wheel? Freemarket?)
  • …attend focused lectures and Q&A's by experienced GMs. Some lecturers would attend physically, while others would be on Hangout.
  • …run at least one game with a group that will provide specific feedback on your major strengths and weaknesses

We will launch a Kickstarter to pay for the hotel and other event expenses. Up to 5 backers at a high backer level will automatically get in.

Stretch goals will fund:

  • Video cameras and personnel to record the lectures.
  • On Air broadcasting of all lectures and Q&A's.

Scratch pad: Here's a rough list of GM attributes to rate:

  • speaking voice
  • acting
  • clarity of interaction
  • grasp of adventure/materials
  • grasp of rules
  • use of tokens/markers
  • energy
  • sharing the spotlight
