Because I started gaming and GMing fairly recently, I don’t think that I’m anywhere close to being an expert. However, I don’t feel like I’m a newbie any more either. I’m somewhere in between. Fortunately, there’s a word for that: journeyman.
Webster defines journeyman as “a worker who has learned a trade…” and “an experienced, reliable worker, athlete or performer…” Usually they are distinguished as being experienced, but not a master in their work, which is right where I feel I am now: a Journeyman GM. Or if you prefer, you can think of me as a time-traveller, as in the Journeyman TV series or The Journeyman Project computer games (huge gold star to you if you played them!).
I plan to mostly write about GMing in role-playing games and my thoughts and experiences about it, as well as being on the player’s side (because that’s important to becoming a better GM too). Sometimes I may write about the role-playing game hobby in general or give reviews of certain products. I may even write something completely unrelated just because I feel like it (hey, it’s my blog after all).
