Who We Are:

Emerald City Game Masters Guild was founded in 2019 to lower the barrier of entry into tabletop role-playing games for new players, orphan players, and groups in need of a Game Master. Our Guild is committed to fostering consent-based, engaging environments for players of all backgrounds, especially those who have been marginalized by the TTRPG community.

Safety


At ECGMG, we believe that trust and fun go hand in hand! All of our Game Masters take player boundaries seriously and utilize TTRPG safety tools at their tables.

Accessibility


No matter your background, abilities, or experience level, our Guild is here to help you navigate the world of TTRPGs in an accommodating, judgement-free environment.

Inclusion


Emerald City GMG is committed to the representation of marginalized genders, BIPOC, and LGBTQ+ folx, both in- and out-of-game. Our playing spaces are both anti-racist and anti-oppressive.

Community


In a time where we're craving both distraction and social connection, the Guild is all the more dedicated to fostering supportive communities through collaborative storytelling.

Creativity


Tabletop RPGs are wonderfully immersive, which allows players to take risks and think outside their "everyday." Our Guild community is a place to explore, create, and self-actualize.

Articles We Love:

Playing D&D With a Professional Game Master

by Jessica Fisher for The Sartorial Geek

“My first experience with gaming was deeply troubling and could have been the end for me right there. This is one of the reasons why I think professional game masters are such a fantastic idea. The deal is simple, you pay a fee and have someone with years of experience provide you with a tailored introduction to playing the game.”

Finding Our Queer Identities in Dungeons & Dragons

by Riley Silverman for Nerdist

“Were I able to speak to the late [Gary] Gygax today, I’d hope to thank him for what I assume would be an aspect of his legacy that I don’t think he or co-creator Dave Arneson had ever considered. The way that Dungeons and Dragons and the games it inspired helped me find my real self.”

Dungeons & Dragons is the Perfect Homeschooling Tool During the Pandemic

by Cam Houle for CBC News

“There is no limit to the scope of things that may or may not take place in the collective imagination of a DnD group — and that’s part of the reason why it makes such a great learning tool for young, malleable minds.”
