The Game Master

...or the Dungeon Master. Referee. Judge. Narrator. Storyteller. Showrunner. Whatever you want to call it. It's the most satisfying hobby I know. I am the God of my own microcosm. I have the power to create alternate realities. The worlds inside my head are as real to me as the outside world. Here is a grandiose and borderline silly picture (sort of a poor man's William Blake illustration) of the Game Master (here the DM) at work.

This picture, incidentally, comes from an article by Gary Gygax on alignment in The Dragon #9, in which he advises some players to hide their alignment, even from the DM. Interesting.

Vintage German Sci-Fi

Here are just a few (eight) awesome covers of the German science fiction magazine Terra, culled from about 500 of them you can find here. Cool stuff! Very inspiring for Starseeker, for those of you who know what that is.
