Free GM Workbook

Game Safety

Do you like to run games? Do you want to start running games? Check out this free GM workbook that Ceridwen wrote as part of a writing challenge set by The Unnamed Game Co.

Whether you're just getting started in running games, or have been at it for a while, this fun, lighthearted collection of activity pages is perfect for you to use to procrastinate with!

Safety is essential to a good game. Whether you are playing a LARP or running a table top rpg you need to work together as a group of players to ensure that everyone has a safe, good time.

There are innumerable ways to accomplish establishing good table culture, but I have built a few tools for use based on how I work with my groups. All documents are free to use and adapt without attribution or payment.

If you want help with building a custom safety document or form for your game, feel free to contact me.
