Do you prefer DM or GM?

>> No.16640185

DM is really only applicable to Dungeons And Dragons, every other game I have ever seen uses Game Master.

>> No.16640186

>>16640176
before actually getting into RPGs I learnt it as DM so I find myself saying DM 90% of the time even though I think its stupid to call them that in any game that doesn't involve dungeons.

I'm a rebel like that.

D&D? DM. Anything else? Its specific title, but otherwise, GM.

>> No.16640192

The only time I use the term DM outside of D&D/Pathfinder is when I'm describing a /d/M.

Agree totally. I keep trying to use GM but often revert when I'm not paying attention.

>> No.16640217

Tend to default to DM, but if I'm expressly talking about a specific system, I'll use the relevant title for that system.

I prefer to stop my shitty hijinks webcomic in favor of writing the most atrocious guro shit.

>> No.16640227

Dungeon Master is trademarked, that's why most use GM.
And I philosophically object to the term 'storyTELLER' to describe a role in a cooperative narrative.

Psh, that's so last year.

DM. I've been calling it that way since I was 9.
Sometimes I slip, and then it feels weird.

Story Teller, it's the term White Wolf uses for their games because they all use a variant of White Wolf's Story Teller system.

Our group started in D&D then moved to Dark Heresy. We joking use GDM for "grim dark master".

Oh man, this guy does the Angel Corps stuff.

I love that shit.

>> No.16640339

I use GM except for games which have dungeon-crawling elements. I often slip up and use it in other games, though, because D&D was what I played first and I'm sued to it.

More like a caustic base and the Professor is pissing himself with laughter that Abrahms believed him, amirite?

>> No.16640409

GM, a lot of my games have nothing to do with dungeons, and DM has connotations of rollplay, which I am not all that interested in.

Probably the one and ONLY story from the series where the girl actually survives without injury.

But yeah the rest are just a chain of death scenes that seem to follow the Aeon Flux model, where they come back in later stories to die in different ways.

Didn't take long to find out what skribblekid is up to.
"spiky box" looks like a thinly-veiled /d/ comic. dismemberment, choking, splooshing, transformations, all on girls that wear bathing suits that magically go between boobs instead of going across, and wearing high heels in hand-to-hand combat.


To answer OP: I use DM, GM, Director and Narrator interchangably. I sometimes use the term "Referee."

I make a point of avoiding "Storyteller," because that's suggests I'm the only one at the table who is telling the story; that's dismissing the contribution of the other players at the table.

He also sent his henchman out over a fucking river of acid without any protective equipment or breathing apparatus, so i'd say it's a given this is fucking with a grunt, yes.

There has never been a better Mass Produced mobile suit.

"Spielleiter"

Or alternatively "Meister".

I say DM for D&D, ST for WoD, any specific names given by the specific games if there are any... but I say GM if I'm speaking generally or if the specific game to which I'm referring doesn't have a unique term.

I thought that was how everyone did it.

>> No.16644287

DM, GM, I'm the guy with the hat.
