Game Master aka GM for the Fyxt RPG


Being a Game Master for Fyxt RPGGame Master in the Fyxt RPG

A Game Master’s job is to make the game fun and exciting. Most importantly, the GM’s job is to run a game so that the players win! Most characters want to be famous and rich in the game world or otherwise stand out about the crowd. This goal gives the players a reason to push themselves and gives them a feeling of true accomplishment. Some adventures or encounters will not always go the way the group would like but ultimately the GM wants the players to win. The Game Master might put obstacles in the way, but that is just to make the “win” that much sweeter. Keep this in mind when creating and gaming in the Fyxt RPG System.

Just think of the basic movie formula: boy meets girl, boy loses girl, boy gets girl back, and they live happily ever after. Or this one: hero falls in love with lady, bad guy takes lady away, hero gets mad, lady almost dies, hero fights passionately for her, hero barely wins. Everyone (the player group) is happy! This is called a story arc. In a movie it takes two hours. In Fyxt it can take two, three or more adventures.

In the end though, the plan of the GM is that the players save the lady and get the bad guy. The players will encounter obstacles and setbacks before they get what they want.

So keep that in mind. The story arc is meant to put some emotion into the game and ultimately makes the game so much more enjoyable. So when you “stick it to the GM” you are just sticking it to the very story that is designed to make you all successful, famous and rich heroes. The most memorable stories are fraught with the adversity the player characters overcame to ultimately become successful and save the world.
