Game Masters use their wits, stamina and creativity to quickly write and run an adventure in their favorite system. After the game, the players, with the aid of a Guest Judge will score their games and crown the Breakout 2017 Iron Ranked GM!

The Breakout 2017 Iron GM Local is an Iron GM® licensed event.

Information for GMs

If you are interested in competing in the Breakout 2017 Iron GM Local tournament, here is everything you need to know.

On Saturday March 11th at 7:00 pm, GMs will be randomly selected from the list of interested competitors.

At 11am on Sunday, three secret story elements will be revealed. The GMs will then have 30 minutes to prepare a 3 hour adventure for a random group of players, and a guest judge.

GMs are required to supply all materials necessary for their players to learn and play their game of choice. (pens, pencils, dice, etc.)

After the game is over, the Judges will lead a brief discussion with the players, scoring the GMs on their use of the secret elements, use of the time available, and other GM best practices such as teaching their game of choice, ensuring each player gets a share of the spotlight, creating and maintaining the tone and atmosphere they are aiming for, etc.

Best of luck GMs! This is a great chance to show off your brilliance and ingenuity.

Note: All potential GMs must also sign up for the Iron GM Local Player event
