Start Your New Year With New Gamemaster Month

It’s a new year–time to try new things, whether you’re a player or a game master!

Join us in the journey to become a game master with New Gamemaster Month, learning to run Numenera, Unknown Armies from Atlas Games, or Trail of Cthulhu from Pelgrane Press. Like in our previous years, all you’ll need is the relevant corebook and a group of friends. We’ll walk you through everything with our blog posts.

For a free test-drive of Numenera, get the quickstart rules and adventure The Spire of the Hunting Sound.

Sign up for updates, and starting on January 9th, we’ll walk you through every detail of organizing and preparing for your first game. And on our Facebook group, you can interact with your fellow new game masters (esteemed class of 2018) as well as experienced game masters who are available to help answer questions and give advice.

If you’re already a game master, we’d love to have you become a mentor, engaging on the Facebook group or social media with the hashtag #NewGmMonth! One of our favorite things to do is to encourage a friend to game master for the first time—they get to experience the fun of storytelling, and you get to learn what fresh creativity they’ve been keeping to themselves all this time. It’s simply win-win.

If you want to test-drive Numenera and the Cypher System to see whether it’s for you, get introduced at, watch the How to Play Numenera video, or go for a slightly deeper dive with the The Spire of the Hunting Sound, our free 48-page adventure and quickstart rules glimmer (mini-bestiary and pregenerated characters too!). If you haven’t downloaded it yet, what are you waiting for?

We look forward to having you on board for New Gamemaster Month 2018!
