Public version of GM primer (wanna be a GM, read this!)

So you're thinking of becoming a GM but not sure what you'd be getting in to? Or just curious? Then refer to this public version of the GM primer, which contains lots of information. I removed certain things like plot info, NPC backgrounds, server passwords, but apart from that, everything is in there (some links won't work as they link to the GM forums). You'll need adobe acrobat reader 5 or later to open it.

Thanks Ed, appreciate the information that you have provided.

Mostly as i thought, these rules make a lot of sense, and i can see how they help to keep this as a rich fun world.

If i do pass i dont think i will have much trouble at all with adhereing to them as they are stated well enough.

One question however is that i have a fair few idea's for some persistent dungeons, if i was to show a few of these to the content team, that it could have a possibility of being added in if it fits in with the world and is of a quality standard?.

Thanks.

Might be public Knowledge but many of the Links in the Primer are from the Old V2 Site. Might be worth updating if possible.

I think probably the latest version has the correct links, but I'll put it on the list!

Hello all,


It was long past due for an update to our public version of the GM primer, so here it is! The public version of the primer is made so that people can steal a glimpse at what lies on the other side of the game client and get a taste of what GMing might be like, either just for their own curiosity and understanding, or because they feel they might be interested in being a GM. (And coincidentally, if you are interested, applications are currently open here until January 31st 2010!)


Like the original version of the public GM primer, we've removed the GM passwords, details on NPCs and plot, and a few other things. However, we've tried to leave a lot of it in, and to share as much info as we can. One thing that you will notice is that you can't click on a lot of the links. This doesn't mean they are broken--just that they are in a forum to which non-GMs do not have access.


The file is currently in .rar form as there have been quite a few updates and added content since the original public version was released, and the .pdf is now too big to post! You will need a program like WinRAR or 7Zip to unzip it.


If there are any questions or comments, I can be contacted at


Regards,

~Carillon

I'm sorry to say that most links are bringing up no web page.

Hey Hellblazer,


If what you mean is the links within the document itself, see this, from my original post above:

hehe no worries Minerva, I think my brain forgot to place some itself. Yes I meant within the document. But even those that are not Gm related wont open for me.
